Nintendo Wii games are designed for a wide variety of tastes and age groups. They are great on their own, but with Wii accessories, game play becomes much more engrossing and fun. These games are inherently played without clutter or restraint through its wireless remote and are some of the best selling video games for this popular system.

Wii games included "in the box" alongside the Wii console are fun, but may not be as exciting as those hot new releases. Wii Points cards are redeemable in the online Wii Shop and players have a wide range of downloadable games and other accessories to choose from. These games are made to be played over time, with the ability to save games at different stages and come back later to pick up where you left off. Everything about Wii revolves around the remote controller and Nintendo Wii Games are no exception.

      For me, the Wii has offered so many hours of fun and enjoyment. Super Mario Galaxy, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and the list goes on. I think you did a real good job highlighting the variety of games available for this console and many of them are now really cheap (used), so there's never been a better time to check out the system's large library of games!

      @meilirs: No, the wii wheel is just a chunk of plastic; you can play by using the wii remote on it's own (using the same wheel motion) or by using a classic or gamecube controller. Gamecube is my favourite probably because I'm used to playing Double Dash =P

      I don't have a Wii, just a PS3 which is still pretty awesome. But if I had to pick which game I would love to have, I would have to go with Sonic and the Black Knight. Crazy fan for Sonic the Hedgehog.

      I have had Wii since they sent me the prototype and love most of the Wii games. I have to say that to really get the most out of everything though, you got to have all the systems. Look at how different the Xbox 360 and PS3 games are from the Wii games, it is all about programming style.
