^ Speakin' of arcade games, y'all might want to grab "Ghost Squad". It's a $10~ used game that's exactly like those on-rail shooters in arcades where ya use that fake plastic gun to shoot things on-screen. Ghost Squad is an actual arcade game shooter that they decided to port directly onto the Wii, and it really is just as fun with a Wii Remote. If there's anythin' the Wii can do great, it's havin' an arcade shooter. A real blast of a game with friends or even alone. And if you're familiar with said arcade games, it'l bring about some great nostalgia to be sure.
I'm a Ninty fanboy; their first-party titles have always been among my favorite games. Nintendo consoles are known to be cheap in price, but by no means faulty; I'm a bit of a budget gamer, so that also appealed to me. Buyin' my Wii back in '06 was a no-brainer.
