    Can anyone recommend Wii games that don't use graphics that look like they're designed for small children? I'm looking for games that adults over the age of 40 wouldn't feel stupid playing. I'm not talking about "adult" porno games.

    No fast paced or memory based games I presume?
    Call of Duty = perfect

    Leslie - you might like Big Brain Academy, which, though drawn in childish-looking graphics, is actually a fun game for adults to play, and is the best Wii party game I've seen so far (other than tennis and bowling, of course). Twilight Princess is also a great game, none too childish at all.

    I just opened up Resident Evil 4 yesterday (based on stellar reviews here and elsewhere) and though it seems ok in terms of game play, graphics and story line, I'm not enjoying all the blood and gore whatsoever. I can see that it might be fun to just start a game once in a while to take out your life's frustrations on the unwitting zombies, but, at this moment I'm leaning towards playing it a few more times and then thinking seriously about trading it in for something else. Tiger Woods' new game, maybe.

    Well it's true. My father can't get into a fast paced game (racing) or memory based game (twilight princess etc) so something that just moves you forward with action and good graphics would be Call of Duty (Medal of Honor is fine too)
    Eh?

    No, probably not. My father just isnt a gaming person, so rpgs and racers bore him. I'm speaking with the experience I have...
