    I am looking to buy a new Wii game. I have the sports pack already. Any recommendations?

    Everyone's talking about the Wii. The people (middle aged ladies!) in my office are abuzz with chat about the bowling game.

    The bowling gmae is pretty fun. Unfortunately, my 9 yr old daughter beats me most of the time.

    My hubby and I are quite competitive on Guitar Hero III.

    I highly recommend it. I've found it to be a great stress reliever!

    My wife tried boxing and REALLY liked it. Not sure what that means or whether or not I should be leary.

    Been playing the Wii with the Kids for 3 days now, the positive thing I have always heard about the Wii is that it is a great game for the whole family and it is true. My arm/shoulder is a bit sore though.

    Marble Mania is great if you have a range of ages to keep happy. It's easy enough for the young ones, but there are some tough courses there for the older ones.

    Zelda and Mario Galaxy are the top adventure games. I absolutely loved Zelda and can't wait to get started on Galaxy. Metroid Prime 3 is a ton of fun if you're into 1st person shooters. And Warioware is great for a quick fix and some crazy fun. Also don't forget all the classics like Super Mario Bros 3, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Castlevania IV, Sonic the Hedgehog, Donkey Kong Country, F-Zero and Punch Out on the virtual console.

    Here's a nice sortable list of everything that's available for download:

    get your hands on the crossbow/gun looking thing (cost $20) that comes with links. Links has been fun, nothing fancy, shooting targets and other things (like skeletons, monsters)

    It's called the Wii Zapper and the game is Link's Crossbow. Seems a bit counter intuitive to me though. I like that the nunchuk and remote are separate because I can play games with my arms stretched out on the arms of my chair. This brings us back to the old days of holding the same device with both hands. Better off just buying Zelda: Twilight Princess for a much more immersive and epic experience.

    Of course get Wii Play. Has cow racing, fishing, and duck hunt. If you're going to get Guitar Hero III, I reccomend getting it for XBOX 360 instead. Downloadable games!

    cow racing is friggin' hysterical...I had my mom v.s. my aunt pitted against each other, and it was so, so, so funny. When they tried to jump the cows, they didn't just lift their arms, they actually jumped themselves. Oh, laughing again just visualizing it.

    I vote Guitar Hero. At first I thought we had a game I could finally beat my son at.. it didn't take more than a few days and now he is blowing me away. Definately a fun game.

    I don't game much, if at all but have caught playing this one even when the kids are not in the room!!!

    I just got Balls of Fury (don't bother). Wii Carnival is good, but can get boring after a few plays. I've heard great things about Sonic/Mario Olympics and Mario Galaxy.

    After playing the Wii Boxing on and off a little over the holidays, I have concluded that it's more than a game system. It's bordering on an exercise program. The Wii workout.

    Ooh, exercise program? I might be able to justify buying this to hubby now! Thank you, Seymour.

    I've seen the commercials for Wii and truthfully, I think a lot of the contortions that people go through when playing are hilarious. Has anyone done a YouTube video of people playing with their Wii? (Oh, grow up. You know what I mean.)

    Guitar Hero III is fantastic, as is Super Mario Galaxy and TigerWoods08

    EDIT: WiiFit is coming out soon as well!
