    I'm not exactly a hardcore gamer. I'd call myself a "casual" when it comes to games. Does anyone here have recommendations for games (Wii and Virtual Console) that are just fun and don't require too much of a commitment of time and mental energy?

    exaxtly what the person above said. also most virtual console games are quite long and do require some commitment to finish and most will test your patience.

    Well you would like games like Wii Play, and maybe a few movie based games like Spiderman etc.

    VC Casual suggestions:

    SimCity
    Pilot Wings (when they come out)
    All the Mario Games can be casual
    Toe Jam & Earl 1 & 2
    New Adventure Island

    Wii Casual suggestions:
    Carnival Games
    Elebits
    Mario Strikers Charged

    and I have a feeling Luney Tunes Acme Arsenal will be worth a purchase.

    Hmm... I'm not a big sports fan, but I will have to give Mario Strikers Charged a look, since I am a big Mario fan, :)

    Well, the Wii's ability to put games on hold so you can come back later and continue right where you left off does mitigate some of the factors... though certainly not the testing of patience. :p

    Also don't forget about GameCube games!

    Get the packs, to save on VC purchases. For packs, I suggest:
    Midway Arcade Treasures (my personal favorite)
    Namco Museum
    Sonic Gems and Mega collections

    I have a decent number of 'Cube games (20 or so) including the classics such as SSBM... though they are getting a bit stale these days. :p

    Nice, I've been going back through and collecting some of them. They could have put just Smash TV and Gauntlet on the midway pack and it would have been worth it. Way more than worth it with everything else.

    I think Carnival Games is fun if you like Wii Sports.

    I shall have to look at those... I haven't seen a single copy of either in any local stores. The main problem I have where I am is that noplace seems to have anything but the most recent games. I imagine that has to do with the extraordinary demand for the Wii itself (finding one is almost impossible... I only got one because our local newspaper forgot to put the Toys 'R Us ad in the Sunday edition a couple of weeks ago.)

    Big Brain Academy is not bad either, for an easily accessible and low time commitment game that you can play whenever.
