I want to get my kids (8 and 5) a new system. They currently have XBOX, which has no new games. My 8 year old loves skating games like Tony Hawk, while my 5 year old loves Star Wars Battlefront, Godzilla, Lego Star Wars. He also loves the WWII titles, but some are too hard for him and also too violent. I really am unsure about the Wii remote. I can't figure out how you would play a skate game or an army game with a remote that looks like a tv remote. Also, what is the difference between the Wii Remote and the Nun-Chuck. Do you have to use different controllers for different games?
My 8 year old really wants the EA game SKATE, but I did not see it listed for the Wii. Will it be available. Are the Lego games available on the Wii?
If I get a system from say Walmart, will it come with everything I need to start playing? How much does it cost?
What skate games would be fun for an 8 year old? Are there any appropriate (not too violent or difficult) army games for a 5 year old?
Thanks for your help.
