    I'm trying to prove to my sister that I can get an Xbox 360 or PS3 without having to be a hardcore gamer like she thinks. What are the best shooter games for the Wii? Please keep in mind I'm a girl and I've never played ANY TYPE of shooting game before (I'm more into RPG.) Thanks a bunch! :)

    Call of Duty games are always a good choice if you're looking for online shooters. I don't know about Goldeneye or The Conduit (2), but I know they are played online.

    Hmm.....I expected that to be the most typical answer.

    Honestly... there's not much else. The Wii lacks in shooters.

    I may be saying this because I'm addicted to Goldeneye, but... Try Goldeneye.

    Since you didn't say First Person Shooter...
    Resident Evil 4. It's Third Person but better than Call of Duty.

    I don't really know what first person or third person shooter is. Like I said before I've never played ANY TYPE of shooter game.

    Third person has the camera behind the character.
    First Person you can only see their arms and Its like you can see what they see.

    What the **** isn't? :lol:

    To elaborate on WiiAssasin's description of third person and first person...

    First person is essentially seeing through the eyes of whatever character you're playing as. As mentioned before, Call of Duty is this playstyle. Example:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVNg-h5DRZ8

    The video has commentary, and I havn't watched it, so you might wanna mute it. Bunch of senseless gibberish to a non-Call of Duty player anyways, lol.

    Anyways, third person is seeing who you're playing as from a different angle, so you can typically see their entire body, and typically their surroundings without having narrowed vision like in first person. An example of this would be the Metroid Wii games. Example:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_dTNn3XYKU

    On that note, I'd definatly recommend playing the Metroid Prime series (the games previous to the one in the above video; Other M wasn't as well recepted as Prime 3) as an introduction to shooters. I can tell ya that playing the often-faster paced shooters with other people online from the get go is pretty daunting. Metroid games aren't notoriously easy, but they're damn-fun, and are shooters.

    No problem. :thumbsup:

    By the by, here's a list of Wii shooters from gamefly, ranked by popularity.

    http://www.gamefly.com/RentalMediaTitleSearch/Browse/?pf=1085&genre=1495

    Gotta recommend the Metroid Prime Trilogy again; three great games for barely more than the price of one, so long as you buy it used. $65 for three great games is a bargain if ya ask me, lol. And if that's a bit much, Metroid Prime 3 alone is only like, $20 used these days.

    Lmao I probably will. :D
    If you want cash just try and get money from relatives during your birthday or Christmas. (I'm a devious girl. :D) Or do the more practical thing and get a job. Once I turn 16 my family said I'm getting a job so I'm working during vacation. :prrr:

    Mooch off of relatives, or get a job... hmmmm... tough decision, i'nit?

    Jokes aside, I plan to get a job real soon, then I can stop whinning about being a poor snob whenever I see the chance, lol.

    Then I can complain about my low pay instead. :lol:

    I am suprised that nobody suggested rail-shooters, as surely they would be the best place to start for a newbie. I'm also shocked that nobody mentioned the BEST shooters on the Wii, those being SIN & PUNISHMENT: STAR SUCCESSOR and GOLDENEYE.

    On-rails shooters:
    Sin & Punishment Star Successor
    Dead Space Extraction
    Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles/Darkside Chronicles
    Ghost Squad
    Link's Cossbow Training

    First Person Shooters:
    Goldeneye
    Call of Duty Modern Warfare/Black Ops
    Medal of Honour Heroes 2 (although the online multiplayer no longer works it has FPS and on-rails modes)

    Games that have shooting but other stuff too:
    Metroid Prime Trilogy (more of an adventure/exploration with shooting)
    Red Steel 2 (more of a slasher than shooter)

    Oh and if you are into RPGs then take a look at Rune Factory Frontier or Sakura Wars, they are the best RPGS on the Wii imo.

    The topic is called "Best shooter", not most discussed game on wiichat.

    Woahwoahwoah. Sin & Punishment? For a newbie? :lol: Unless Star Successor is all the more easier than the N64 one, can't say I could agree with that.

    Shame on me for not mentioning Link's Crossbow Training, or especially Ghost Squad... I've got a copy of it collecting dust somewhere, a bargain at $10 and a great party game. Like any good arcade game/arcade adaption.
