    Hey Everyone.

    I just got my Wii this morning. My dad and I waited in line for hours. We just had to get one. It was originally my mom's idea (go figure). I have so many questions. Well, first my dad won't let anyone play it til Xmas, so he wrapped it up and stuff. We got the Wii Play too. What does the Nunchuck controller do? Do we need more of them? There are six of us in my family. How many controllers can you use at once? Besides Mario Galaxy, what are some of your favorite games? What controllers should I definitely buy? Thanks in advance, I'll check back later.

    Nunchuck is for various movements, and is needed in most games.

    4 people can play together, so get 3 more motes and chucks.

    Zelda Twilight Princess, Red Steel and Metroid Prime 3 are good games to have.

    Well congrats on the wii.
    The nunchuck is the same as a joystick on the 360 or ps3.There are some games such as mario charged that need the nunchuck it cant hurt to get them to mack your wiimotes.you can use up to 4 controllers at a time.Metroid is good zelda tp are my favs but i dont have many games.Hopefully someone else can help you a bit more.:cool:

    1. The nunchuk attaches to the wii remote, thus giving you more buttons to press, basically. It is used for more complex games, and although it won't be needed for all games, it will be needed for most good games.
    2. You can use 4 wii remotes [whether there is a nunchuk attached to them or not] at once. Some games allow 4 players to play at once, some do not.
    3. Metroid Prime 3 Corruption along with Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess are two of the best games of the year. They are both one player games. Mario Party 8 is probably the best party game of the year. It allows 4-players to play at once.

    Everyone has explained the knunchuck and some games to recommend so I will simply add on:lol:

    I really enjoyed resident evil 4, it was widely anticipated one of the greatest games of all time.

    Rayman Raving Rabbids is a very funny game and you can get all members of your family playing it.

    Since you have the system it comes with 1 wiimote and 1 nunchuck and you got Wii Play so that should come with another wiimote. So buying 3 nunchucks and 2 more wiimotes would ensure that 4 people can play at the same time ( depending on the game )

    First and foremost, congratulations and welcome to the family :)

    As far as games other than Galaxy, I'd say must haves would include Zelda: Twilight Princess for sure, after that, it's all preference to genre. I'd also pickup a classic controller for VC games, other than that, sounds like you're set! An extra nunchuck wouldn't hurt either if you've got multiple people playing certain games.

    Congrats and have fun!

    With the games you have you only need to buy 2 more Wii Remotes and one more Wii Nunchuk.

    So the games you currently have are WiiSports and WiiPlay. The only WiiSports game to use the nunchuk is boxing. All other WiiSports games and all WiiPlay games do not require the nunchuk. However, the boxing game is one of the best WiiSports games. Get a second nunchuk. Most of these games allow either 4 players simultaneously or via rotation (like golf), so it might be a good idea to get more wiimotes (2 more of these).

    Above are mentioned many of the excellent single player games including what are generally considered the Wii's AAA titles:

    Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Super Mario Galaxy (does have minor multiplayer option)
    Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

    But I suspect with 6 people in your family, you might want to steer towards "local" multiplayer (for example, Medal of Honor Heroes 2 has online *only* multiplayer and may not be as good of an idea). Most of these tend to fit into the party game category like:

    Warioware: Smooth Moves
    Mario Party 8
    etc.

    I *believe* Ghost Squad does local multiplayer, but oviously is not a party game. I also know that Guitar Hero 3 will allow local multiplayer but a) you would really need a second guitar b) I don't think you can yet buy a second guitar without buying the game again (coming soon though) c) the game is very popular so you may have issues finding it.

    I would personally suggest: a) get 2 more wiimotes b) have your dad reserve Super Smash Brothers Brawl (www.smashbros.com) c) go to someplace like metacritic.com to find the aggregated game scores, then find some games you might like with good scores and see if they require a nunchuk or not.

    I know a lot of people have said Mario Party. My gf bought that a few weeks ago, and it's been collecting dust. Both of us found it way too slow to be enjoyable. But maybe we're just weird lol. I definately reccomend the Wii Zapper with Links Crossbow training though. And Mario Galaxy of course.
