I Have a Wii for 6 Months – What Should I Play?

I’ve been loaned a Nintendo Wii by my brother-in-law while they’re gone for 6 months. The games they have are:

Wii Games We Borrowed:

  • Super Mario Brothers Wii
  • Lego Batman 2
  • Lego Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Batman The Brave and the Bold
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • Skylanders (I seriously need this one explained to me!)
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns (Not pictured above)

I’m listing these games to show that I already have them to play. I’m looking for other ideas of what to play.

We’ve never really played any Wii games. We have an Xbox 360 so we’ve played any games that are available on both platforms (i.e. Lego Star Wars, etc.)

Up until the Wii I was a huge Nintendo fan and owned the original NES and played a bunch of games on the Super NES.

This is Where You Come In

So my question to you, faithful and knowledge readers of my blog, what games should we play in our short window with a Wii?

Reply in the comments below, on the Facebook page or to my Twitter account. I’ll post a follow up with all the suggestions.

  1. Levi bought me Just Dance 4 for the Wii. I would have been okay with 1, 2 or 3 too. I like to think my flailing around the living room “dancing” is a good workout. To me, Just Dance is a lot like karaoke but with dancing. Good with a group of people at a party but kind of weird/lame if you do it alone all the time. Have fun with the Wii.

  2. I’m really, really tempted. If I had just one Zelda game I could play – which one should I play?

  3. In addition to some of the games you already have (Mario, Skylanders), my boys (5 & 7) really like the Kirby games, as well as Tony Hawk skateboarding/snowboarding.

  4. Ah yes. Forgot about the Tony Hawk games. I played the first few back in the day on Playstation 1. Have to take a look.
