    Hi - I'm an adult female gamer in my 40s. I had a NES and SNES but haven't played much over the years. I became interested in gaming again when the DS came out with the Brain Games. I then discovered Animal Crossing Wild World and loved that game. When I heard that an Animal Crossing was in the works for the Wii, I decided I wanted one. I just got my Wii for Christmas.

    Obviously there is no Animal Crossing title available yet, but I have discovered that the Wii system is awesome. I particularly love the bowling game on Wii sports so far. It is so realisitc and fun.

    I can't wait to try some other games. At this forum, I hope to get ideas on new games to buy and to learn more about how to best utilize my Wii. I also hope to find out what accessories I might need to buy for it. So far I bought an extra Wiimote.

    Anyhow, I'm glad to have found this forum.

    Yep, this is one of the best. Welcome to Wiichat!

    Oh, you also might want to look into buying Mysims. Although, it is a lot like Animal Crossing, it is something to hold you over.

    Happy Wii-ing!

    Welcome to WiiChat!!!

    If you don't already have it, I would recommend The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess. It is an awesome experience. Other fun games are Metroid, Super Paper Mario, Super Mario Galaxy, and Mario Strikers Charged. You'll want to add friends to your address book so you can message them, and play against them in certain games. And definitely check out the "Check Mii Out" channel. It is pretty fun.:smilewinkgrin:

    Hello there. I'd definitely recommend Wario Ware for some laughs and Zelda just for the sheer size and beauty of the game. Super Mario Galaxy is also wonderful, a little too easy, but just great.

    I'd also check out some of the retro games for sale on the online shop channel. If you are worried about buying retro games with your credit card then step into your nearest wal-mart and pick up a few Wii Points cards and use them. Why is it worth it? BECAUSE THE N64 IS PURE GOLD!!!! :crazy:

    If you liked the brain games, then Zack and Wiki: Hunt for Barabos treasure is an excellent puzzle game.

    It's reminiscent of Curse of Monkey Island. Point and Click adventure game.
    And brain-frying puzzles.

    You may be tempted to go out and buy games just from looking at the cover. Unfortunately, as with any console, there are alot of Wii games that are just plain bad.

    Be sure to search for reviews before any game purchase.

    Thanks for all the welcomes and the game suggestions.

    Some of the games on my possible wish list after reading info here and reviews at Amazon and some game sites are:

    Super Mario Galaxy
    Zelda: Twighlight Princess
    Super Paper Mario
    Raving Rabbids
    Mario Party 8
    Metroid
    Sonic and Mario Olympic

    and now

    MySims

    Of course, I won't buy them all - at least not right away, but maybe I can rent some and see which ones I really like.
