    I've gotten a wii - now what do I do with it :)

    I have a Wii (sports package w/game/controller/nunchuk) under the tree for my daughter. It is joined by:

    Super Paper Mario
    Resident Evil: Umbrella Chron.
    Mario Strikers Charged
    Guitar Hero III
    Sonic and the Secret Rings
    Zelda Twilight Princess
    DDR: Hottest Party (w/mat)
    Link's Crossbow Training (w/zapper)

    1 Classic Controller
    1 extra remote
    1 extra nunchuk
    3 extra dance pads
    2000 Points
    Accessory pack (tennis racket, baseball bat, boxing gloves, golf club, steering wheel, gun, 2 x 1800 mah batteries (w/cords), grip, skins, protector)

    Wow, listing it here makes it sound huge...anyway...She is home schooled and often has multiple friends come over when her work is done to play and hang out. We figured this would be a good safe haven to keep the kids out of trouble but I don't want her spending a ton of time alone on it.

    What games listed play with how many people? (I'm told DDR:HP can play up to 4 people at one time - thus the extra dance pads.)

    What games (listed and out there) are best with at least 2 and preferably up to 4 (I assume this is the max number wii can handle at one time?)

    With more duplicate accessories, will more players play at the same time? So I should I have a set of 4 everything? (accessories, remotes, nunchuks, etc.)

    What is the 2000 pts for?

    How many batteries can the Wii charge at one time?

    What should I be asking and what can I expect when this thing is hooked up?
    Am I missing anything?

    I'm clueless here and don't see the point of shelling out this kind of cash if we don't take advantage of all the Wii has to offer.

    ...woah.

    Is it just for her, and if so, what is she into?

    You're missing [arguably] the best two wii games of the year: Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3 Corruption.

    The wii revolves around party games, and thus, many of its games offer more than one [or two] people to play. If you are into gaming at all [and even if you are not] I wouldn't be surprised if you find yourself playing the wii all the time, alone and with family and friends.

    If you need any specific questions answered, feel free to ask.

    Wii Play, Wii Sports are good for more people.
    Yes buy more controllers.
    2000 points is to access old Nintendo games and channels and download them for certain amount of points.

    Wii doesn't charge batteries, there are chargers that are bought seperately if you wish for them.

    You can expect a fun and very reliable system once set up

    Also having an internet connection on the Wii is a good idea as well, to experience all Wii has to offer via wireless internet connection or USB connector.

    Do the classic games play better/with improved features or whatever on the wii - or is it like downgrading to an old version of something?

    Not really. She works hard both in her schooling and around the house and doesn't receive an allowance or much throughout the year.

    Also, we really are the teen hangout after school and all the kids work hard to get the "privilege" of hanging at our place. But, we usually play "board" games (the unique kind that run $60+ in specialty stores, over the years I've collected one entire wall full), sing, dance, craft, skate etc... so we are geared more for 4-8 people active at one time.

    This will be new for us since more will be watching rather than participating but the kids have indicated they would like to see a more technological trend at our place. She currently has a small TV (8"?) we are upgrading to a 32" by giving her ours and getting an HDTV for Christmas for us.

    Anyway, thats the plan, we just want to make sure we don't gear this toward her playing alone.

    1. The classic games are played in their EXACT original condition.
    2. The wii is absolutely perfect for large groups.
    3. Are you sure that you won't be playing it at all? You sound to me like this is your first time gaming, and my only suggestion is to not block it out as her toy. You are the exact type of person that Nintendo is gearing the wii toward, you'll have plenty of fun if you open up to it.
