    I know ... this has probably been discussed before (naughty moderator!), but when you search for "Wii" it says it too short to search. So I can't find the other threads!

    Paul and I bought a Wii last weekend ... we went to Target to register for baby stuff, and ended up with a Wii. Oops. All we have so far is the Wii Sports that comes with it - and it's actually quite fun! We've also played Guitar Hero, and will likely end up buying that as well.

    What are some more of your favorite games? I've heard of the Carnival Games (or something) where they have Skee-Ball and stuff like that.

    What are your favortite games?

    (or if anyone knows where the other thread(s) is, we can merge these!)

      Guitar Hero! It's so much fun!!! We were looking after our friends' kids a few weeks ago and they had just bought the Wii and Guitar Hero. Alex and I were playing it, and all I heard since that was nonstop talk about getting it... so I caved. I'm not a big 'gamer' but Guitar Hero is loads of fun!
      Opps... got too excited and didn't read your whole message where you mentioned Guitar Hero... but, yes, loads of fun. There's also Dance Revolution or something like that, which was fun. It's nice b/c you're up and moving and getting a bit of exercise.

          honestly, I bought Amos 4 games when I bought him the Wii, and really the only ones we play are the ones that come with it, the bowling, golf, etc. We have a great time with them.

          I have a coworker who has the guitar hero for Wii and they love it

            Yep - I've played Guitar Hero a ton, and I do like that one. It's great when you have a group of people over ... we played that all night on New Years Eve (a friend brought his Wii over).

            Gretchen - call your local Target and ask when they're getting a shipment, they should be able to tell you. Then just show up first thing in the morning!

              I have a wii and a xbox 360. We have guitar hero II and III on the 360 and is a blast. I have recently played endless ocean which is actually very fun if you like the ocean and swimming around the sea and finding fish. Very fun, i spend hours on end with that game. I am also a big fan of smash bros. brawl. I just finished the main story line and unlock several characters. I have been a fan of the smash bros. games. If you dont know anything about them, they are basicly a 4 player fighting type game however the characters are classic nintendo characters. Also, coming out next month which I am very excited about is mario kart. Did you have a game cube before? Mario on the game cube was a blast. My sister and I used to take the game cube to friends and play mario kart, smash bros., and mario party. We basicly have all the mario parties. We are addicted what can I say. The newest mario party for the wii is also a very good game. Well, I hope that helps. Those are my best games anyway. Have fun.

                We just got a Wii a couple weeks ago. We only have two games aside from the sports. We got the mario/sonic olympics and the carnival games. I like them both, but I must say I am much better at the carnival game than the mario one. I want the mario kart game when it comes out.

                  We also searched EVERYWHERE - don't give up. We finally found one completely randomly the other week at a Blockbuster that is sort of out of the way. Totally flipped out when we realized they had them in stock!!!

                  The problem is that they are actually having difficulty manufacturing the systems. I forget exactly what the deal is but our neighbor works for them and explained that's why stores on only get 8 or so in a shipment. If you live in a big city, they can be really hard to find! I had been looking for one since November - 5 months and finally found one! YIPPEE!!!! Or should I say Wiiiiiii!!!

                  It was funny, we actually saw one at Walmart in Mexico when we were there doing our site visit in December but it was really expensive so we had to pass on it.

                  Anyways, back to games. We also only have the Sports Pack right now, although we do have Guitar Hero for Playstation. The Carnival Game sounds like fun - I love Skee Ball! Our neighbors have about 10 different games. We're supposed to go over and play Mario Smash sometime soon - it sounds like fun.

                  Dance Dance Revolution is our favorite game. But then there is Game Party, which is a lot of fun...

                    I like the Mario and Sonic Olympic games too. I am also a fan of Mario Party, kind of a kiddie game, but its based on a board game set up where you roll the dice and then play mini games against other players...its a great 4 person game.
