Favorite game?

Right now, I'm rocking MarioKart. I love how it brings back a lot of the old MarioKart maps that I love and the ability to unlock things makes it even better!
Even the online play is great! The lag is not even there.

Force Unleashed is badass. I've played it for xbox 360 as well...but there's nothing like swinging around a wiimote and mastering some combos with the nunchuks as well to make a game more interesting. The graphics are only slightly less sharp.

Mario Kart and Mario Strikers Charged are my favorites. I mostly play on 360 though.

Bomberman Blast on WiiWare is great fun.

Leaving for a road trip in my father-in-law's RV tomorrow morning. 24 hours drive time. I'll be hooking up my Nintendo Wii to be playing in my "off time." Would it be totally lame if I played Mario Kart while I'm not behind the wheel? Mainly taking it for virtual console and WiiWare games got stored on my SD card. NICE!

When I have time to game right now I am duffing my way through Tiger Woods 10, pretty slick game play with the WM+
Don't think I could go back to non motion based Tiger Woods at this point.

Agreed. Golf games are no longer meant to be played with the thumbs. But even beyond the WM+...The game itself is pretty slick too. A pretty deep career mode that will keep me playing for a while. And of course...The addition of Frolf.

Boom Blox Bash Party is a lot of fun. I also have Galaxy and Kart. I have some Sonic games but those are for my son to play with.

I rented Force Unleashed yesterday. It's all right.

AVOID CLONE WARS: LIGHTSABER DUELS. I rented it and finished the game in an hour (Intermediate difficulty). Awful game.

Forgot to mention my fav. games. I must say we play more Mario Kart and Dr. Mario than anything, but I've really been enjoying Bit.Trip.Beat recently too.

Does Super Mario Bros. 3 on VC count as my "favorite Wii game?" heh. Doesn't get much better than SMB3.

Metroid Prime 3 is probably my favorite game for the Wii.

It seems like I keep coming back to play Boom Blox, Mario Kart, Rock Band, and De Blob... for the most part, casual games that don't require a ton of play time. My overall favorite game, though, was Twilight Princess. It didn't make this list because I'm not sure that I've even picked it up in the last year.

I'll concur with srmccoy on Metroid Prime 3, and I'll also add Super Mario Galaxy. No More Heroes was pretty awesome as well, although the little chores you had to do for money bring it down a couple of notches. I hope the sequel addresses that issue.

I'd say Boom Blox, Mario Kart, and Virtua Tennis 09 (only because I'm a tennis player and I think its kinda funny)

Right now...Punch Out! Great translation from the OG game to the Wii capabilities. Better with a Wii board since its natural for you to just duck left or right to avoid punches and to actually physically throw a punch instead of a twitch of a finger adds even greater fun. Not recommended for die hard gamers... you'll miss the button smashing LOL. ;)

Favorite all time: Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker/ SMB3

I've got to agree w/ u jbowk. Punch-Out! for Wii is actually a really fun game. I've been waiting for a Wii boxing game that makes good use of the motion controls, kinda like Wii Sports Boxing. It'd be really awesome if EA would port Fight Night Round 4 to the Wii, but Punch-Out! will keep me busy til then.

Heck yeah Punchout is great! Punchout on the NES is one of my favorite Nintendo games of all time and I love it on the Wii.

Speed Racer is fun and has a really interesting combat system that I don't think any other game has. Also Wario Ware Smooth Moves is extremely entertaining whether you're alone or with a group of people. But I have to say my favorite is by far Mario Galaxy.

House of the Dead: Overkill

The Wii is made for rail shooters. This one is like an interactive Grind House: Planet Terror. There is nothing like getting a few zombie head shots.

Overkill is amazing. I was really pleased with just how hilarious they made the script. More games need comedy like that.

I have every Wii game by Nintendo (except Wii Music and Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast, and we all know that third-party support is somewhat weak) and I must say Zelda: Twilight Princess is the best single-player game, followed by Super Mario Galaxy, while Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the best multi-player game, followed by Mario Kart.

Hands down Mario Kart Wii is the best game available for the system. Super Mario Galaxy comes in a close second. I'm definitely excited for the sequel!

Surprised no one has mentioned Okamai. Long time gamer here, bought a Wii early on for myself based on the potential of the system and have been generally disappointed - the good games are good but few and far between.
Best game was Okamai with tons of hours of game play and replayability, 100% completion, etc. RE4 was pretty good but nothing great. Playing No More Heroes right now and it's just okay. The bosses are pretty easy to defeat - about 10 hours of game play and I'm almost done. We'll see whether I go back and replay it but I doubt it. On my list to buy is Metroid Prime, Super Mario Galaxy, Punch Out, and maybe the Conduit. Someone on another board mentioned The Darkness but I couldn't find anything at Amazon, ebay, gamespot, etc about it.

Okami is one of those titles that doesn't get much attention, but receives much praise from those who have played it. I recently picked it up for $19.99 at a local Gamestop, and was floored by it's creative gameplay. It has a very unique style too, which some may not like, but I appreciated fully. It's a definite must-play, even if you rent it.

I'm all for Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy, and Wii Fit. I LOVE Wii Fit. Very fun. If you don't like moving, you probably won't like Wii Fit, or will complain about forgetting about it after a while like many people. Any workout regimen needs devotion!

I'm not saying this in a negative way, but the game I play the most is Wii Sports. Thats not lame because it's the launch game. I did the same thing with the included copy of Super Mario Bros. I got with my NES! It's simply the easiest game to turn on and start swinging away at tennis or golf balls or throw some strikes. And people quickly join in when they see it played. Nintendo got this one right from the get go. Plus, most people haven't explored the Training or Fitness modes in Wii Sports. It's like 2 other new games! The Training mode features 3 mini-games for each sport featured on Wii Sports. If you get really good at these mini-games (like silver or gold level - yes, there's medals!) you will begin to own at the sports when you play the full game! Plus sometimes I just want to do the homerun derby or the pick up the spares challenge. They are actually very challenging to get Gold medals on! The power shot mode for bowling is one of my groups favorite mini-games for everyone to play. You throw a regular shot, then they add a row to the back of the pins until theres 91 pins for the final frame! Its a lot of skill and a lot of fun! The Fitness mode is just a precursor to Wii Fit. It challenges you to 3 random mini-games taken from all 5 sports and rates your performance based on balance, speed, and stamina. A quick way to boot up the game and jump into some fun immediately. Once you reach Pro level against the computer in Tennis, the game amps up in difficulty too. So much to say for such a simple game....

My favourites that I keep coming back to are, oddly, MLB Power Pros and Bomberman '94. The first is a incredibly deep baseball game with a built in visual novel-like section...that looks like Bomberman plays baseball. And Bomberman '94? It's five player Bomberman with a rock-solid single player mode. What's not to love?

Smash Bros. : Brawl and Mario Kart are what keep me going back to it. Besides those two, No More Heroes, RE 4, and Galaxy, although I get headaches playing Galaxy after awhile. I'm really looking forward to getting Tiger Woods '10. After having played some of the previous ones on the Wii, the added precision with the MotionPlus sounds excellent.

Harry potter and the half blood prince is pretty great. Not to difficult though. You can also duel and stuff for replayability. Mario Kart takes the cake though. You can always replay it!

I haiving a blast with Punch Out, but Mario Kart is my system favorite that I consistently revisit.

My second favorite is Mario Galaxy - just loads of fun and FANTASTIC music.

I really enjoyed Metroid Prime 3 and No More Heroes but there wasn't much replay value.

I've kept my Wii only for the zapper games. I haven't really found much else to pique my interest. It was fun in the beginning, but it's all become licensed games, just like the DS. :(

I've loved Mario Kart, Mario Galaxy and World of Goo (best $10 I've ever spent on a game). I know there are a lot of Wii haters out there, but its so much easier to just turn it on and start playing, not having to worry about signing in or any of that sort of stuff.

That's the allure to the Wii I think, the instant access (as coologuy1957 pointed out with Wii Sports) and just how you can start playing classic games that are just FUN.
