Well, within the standard package you will get:Originally Posted by jdavis
1 Wii Console
1 A/V Cable
1 Sensor Bar
1 AC Adapter
1 Wii Remote (comes with 2 AA batteries)
and a game copy of Wii Sports
As it seems that you are getting the console for more than one person I would recommend picking up 3 extra Nunchuck and Wii Remote controllers. If you are planning to access the Wii Shop Channel (Internet access required), I would also recommend either a Classic Controller or (If you do not already have) a Gamecube controller. These are used to play the virtual console games that you purchase via the Wii Shop Channel. Unless it is just a NES game then all you would need is the Wii Remote. As for games go, you already have a great game for all 3 people, Super Mario Galaxy.
As for Spiderman and Spongebob, I have not played those titles so I cannot give you any advice on those. Spongebob does sound like it will win over the kids. For the nine and ten year old I would recommend games like:
Mario & Sonic at the Olympics
Super Paper Mario
Nights: Journey of Dreams
Mario Strikers Charged
As for the forty-two year old I would recommend some games like:
Metal of Honor Heroes 2
Guitar Hero 3
Metriod Prime 3
Resident Evil 4
Resident Evil Umbrella Chornicles
These are just recommendations and do not need to be taken seriously, everyone has their own taste within the gaming world. These are just some of the famous titles that are on the market.
Also, will this console be played a lot? If so, I highly recommend picking up some rechargeable batteries. Trust me you will need them.
If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.
