Default Just got a Wii

So my little sister just got a Wii. I'm looking for some recommendations for her and if there are any hardcore games worthwhile for me to play on it as well.

She's 12yo and not much into gaming other than PC flash games so using a conventional controller is pretty foreign to her.

Suggestions are much appreciated.

Wii Sports Resort. Only game you need really. The Wii is really a console of a few casual gems and mediocre everything else. ::

You could try that Mad World game, or maybe the new Dead Space.I hear it's crap though and now they are talking about a port to PC/PS3/360 to try and salvage it.

Yeah, the few mature games on the system are known to be mostly crappy, with controls that are actually worse than other consoles and PC.

The only non-nintendo game on the system worth a damn when I owned one was Monkey Ball. She might like that, you control it just by balancing the remote in your palm.

She could like all the Nintendo franchises really, some are harder to control than others... try Warioware, that game is fun for a few days (just rent it). Mario and Zelda if you think she can handle it. Chicks love Animal Crossing, but she is probably too young for it.

Mario Galaxy is pretty fun for a while. I wouldn't recommend Zelda, personally. That series has been dead to me since OoT :\.

I will sell you my copy of Ocarina of Time Masters Quest or whatever for the gamecube (also playable in wii, don't sweat it) for like... 50 bucks .

I got Dead Space Extraction. You have to shake around the nunchuck to charge a light... Really... Every 2 minutes...

Lol, I'll pass on Dead Space then.

I think I'm going to go with Mario Galaxy and Mario Kart for her. The Metroid Trilogy looks pretty good so I'll pick that up for myself. For the casual mini type games I'll just rent those for her to play.

Other than another Wiimote + nunchuck are there any other accessories or better cables that I should look into?

Or maybe, Wii just isn't as good once the Wii Sport hype wears off?
