    Questions....

    My daughter will be getting a Wii for Christmas from her grandmother...she's 7.

    Any recommendations? I'm a PC guy, with absolutely no console knowledge.

    I've read the newbie thread, and while comprehensive and extremely useful, doesn't address my questions specifically...

    I think she's also getting the Wii-Play package...for the second controller maybe?

    Suggestions for "must have" games, hardware, etc? I've seen a charging stand out there...it that necessary? How long do charges last normally? WHat about that crossbow thingy? Will I require one of them? How do I know what games require what?

    Hope this is the right place to get those sorts of answers!

    Thanks.

    - Chargers: IMO just get the normal rechargeable batteries, e.g. Energizer. Both
    the nyko charging station and energizer rechareable batteries are NiMH.

    - Controllers: for every wiimote get a nunchuck. Not entirely sure about the crossbow/zapper, but I'm pretty sure it's optional, e.g. Medal Of Honor Heroes 2 can be played with just the wiimote+nunchuck or wiimote+nunchuck+zapper.

    - Games for kids: Check here. Mario & Sonic can be fun for younger children as well.

    well u don't need the crossbow thing it jus comes with the wii zapper which is made for shootin games....It would b ur best bet to buy a charge station....I spent over 80 dollars in batterys in 2 weeks before I got it and the charge lasts for 5-6 hours....The best game to get that is age suitable for ur daughter would b Super Mario Galaxy, Mario and Sonic @ the Olympic Games, Mario Party 8, Games like that and if u r interested to try some games on it then I say get Zelda Twilight Princess, Super Smash Bros. Brawl which will b out in febuary...there are more so jus ask anytime

    hey,
    since your daughter is 7 thats a tough call. i would go with super monkey ball: banana blitz, or rayman raving rabbids (if i were you i'd get the first one not the second the second was criticized for not really building on the 1st.) if she's a hardcore little gal maybe super paper mario would be good, its like the old mario games (side scrolling platformer) and sometimes you can press A to make the world flip and become 3d. it depends on her skill level really. charge stand i would NOT get, because thats only for recharchable batteries which the wii-mote does not come with. even if the stand did i wouldnt get it. the crossbow thing is a mini game type thing that comes with the wii zapper which is esentially just a dock to set your wii remote and nunchuck up like a tommy gun, for on-rails shooters. if youre getting wii play, that comes with a wii-mote but NOT a nunchuk, so you may need a SECOND nunchuk to play some games.


    you can tell what games use whaton the back of the game in one of the corners there are little icons that say what they use. PS the wii zapper is NOT required for any game at all, it just sets up the controller in a way that is supposed to be "more fun" for some games :/

    mario party 8 also might be good

    If your kid is a musical genius then Guitar Hero 3 would be good too , like this 9 yr old kid. Yikes! Btw, GH3 is somewhat hard to find and it's mono-output only right now. A recall/replacement is supposed to happen early next year.
