    The wheel sucks. Unless everybody racing has one, it is at a huge disadvantage compared to the others playing.

    Wii Fit is why I bought my second :rolleyes: Wii. So I brought it home and fired it up and I was pretty into it, faithful about using it regularily and so on. But after a couple of weeks, my body began to ache in places and ways that I'd never felt before. It was WAY harder on my body than when I work out at the local health club.

    Shortly thereafter I got rid of my Wii Plus followed by the second Wii. :rolleyes:

    All this talk about Wii Fit, but has anybody had any experience (good or bad) with EA Active?

    If you are looking for kid-friendly or family-oriented games, there are a huge selection of games to pick from in the Wii catalog.

    I don't really fall into either of those categories, and I have found that there is a only a limited selection available for hardcore, mature gamers. But I still have enough games to keep me busy, so I'm happy with the purchase.

    I own-

    Super Mario Galaxy
    The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Metroid Prime Trilogy
    Resident Evil 4 (Wii edition)
    Okami (Wii edition)
    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10
    New Super Mario Bros. Wii
    Wii Sports & Wii Sports Resort

    But I'd also recommend-

    Guitar Hero 5
    The Beatles: Rock Band
    DJ Hero
    Zack & Wiki
    Little King's Story
    Boom Blox Bash Party
    Super Paper Mario
    No More Heroes
    Dead Space Extraction
    Mario Kart Wii
    de Blob
    EA Sports Active
    Wii Fit Plus
    Muramasa: The Demon Blade
    LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
    Trauma Center: Second Opinion
    A Boy And His Blob (remake)

    And you can get some great downloadable WiiWare games-

    World Of Goo
    LostWinds: Winter Of The Melodias
    Bomberman Blast
    Swords & Soldiers
    Mega Man 9
    Contra ReBirth
    Bit.Trip games
    Art Style games

    On top of that you can get old NES, SNES, Genesis, TG-16, Sega Master System games on the Virtual Console.

    And there is some cool stuff coming up-

    Super Mario Galaxy 2
    Sin & Punishment 2
    Red Steel 2
    the new Zelda
    the new Metroid

    So, yeah, definitely some good games out there.

    Well, after months of sitting in my basement, my lovely Wii has been been brought into our living room. It feels a little strange to be playing it again, but I'm sure I'll get back into the swing of it pretty soon.

    Sadly, I only have three games for it. Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii Sports and Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn. Wii Sports is great for the entire family, Super Smash Bros. is a hit with kids and teenagers and Fire Emblem is geared more toward the hardcore RPG gamer. All of them are fun in their own way.

    Like others have said, there is a solid library of games out there, so it won't be hard to find something that will satisfy everybody's tastes.
