    ...more are worth renting.

    For example: Raving Rabbids, Wario Ware, Resident Evil UC are worth renting...IMO. Any others to add to the list? These days you can rent games for quite a while (two weeks or so). While you're renting it just play it quite often and you will beat it in a few days. What do you guys think?

    I can see buying these games:

    Mario Kart Wii
    Smash Bros (when it comes out)
    SMG
    Zelda
    Metroid
    Strikers
    online multi-player games

    Of course, if you play games over and over again than this concept does not apply. You can always just rent it again too.

    Well it all depends on if you have someone to play those games with. Rayman Raving Rabbids is meant for a group of family and friends to get together and have fun as well as Wario Ware and Wii Sports.
    If you're talking about online then Strikers, MOHH2, and SSBB are the best so far.
    Single player would have to be SMG, Metroid, Zelda, Mercury Meltdown Revolution (very challenging game), and plus the VC games.

    Good point, but it all comes down to how much Raving Rabbids or Wario Ware one can play. These days, with so many options, it's very tempting to feed the Wii with new material.

    Well, that's why you should keep your game library big so that way if you get bored of one game you got another. Let's say you and your friends get bored of Raving Rabbids, then you got Wario Ware, if you get bored of that then you got Wii Sports, if you seriously get bored of all three there's Mario Party. The list will keep on going especially with the VC games.

    ^Another good single player game that should last a while.

    Yes thats why I rent most games, saves me money and I am still able to beat them throughout the rental time.

    However I do buy games I know will be worth the money.

    -Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition, cheap price and good controls..worth the money.
    -Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, good game and interesting take on the series.
    -Super Mario Galaxy, my favorite game of 2007.
    -Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess, first game when I get my Wii, amazing game.
    -Metroid Prime 3 Corruption, great game again, lots of fun with that one.

    Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles is great for hardcore RE fans. Otherwise the game is way tooooo short and not worth $50. That is one I regret buying @ full price. There's just something really irritating when it comes to wasting money on a full price game. I may check out Mercury Meltdown Revolution, it's only $20 and sounds like a cool puzzle game. Otherwise I'm sticking to buying games like No More Heroes, Zelda and Smash Bros.

    Just my two cents....I mean $50.00

    Through my hour of research I am finding these games to be keepers:

    Trauma Center New Blood
    Zack @ Wiki
    Zelda (if that's your thing)
    Metroid Prime
    SMG
    Mario Strikers


    Most Likely these upcoming titles:

    Star Wars Force Unleashed
    Day of Disaster
    Mario Kart
    Super Smah Bros

    Here are some maybes

    No More Heroes (hearing good and bad mostly good)
    Lego Star Wars
    Medal Of Honor
    Endless Ocean (partially for the price)

    You forgot to add Monster Hunter 3 for the upcoming. Literally a game worth looking at. It's just like WoW x10, but for console. Very Epic!!!

    For me unless is a sports game or a multiplayer online game, the rest are no keepers.. I sell them in ebay after I beat them, so I get more money that I would ever get trading the games at a store.

    I agree very few games are worth buying.

    I usually only buy games if they have a 90% rating across the board. I bought a couple games I regret when there weren't many games for the wii (Spiderman 3 *cries*).

    Trading games is of course a rip off, thats how they make money.

    Monster Hunter 3 looks nice, but so far its past games have bombed on reviews.

    I just look at how long it will take me to finish the game. I've played some absolutely great games that were renters. Trauma Center 2nd Opinion was fantastic but I was done with it after a week. I was on the last level of Zack & Wiki when it was due back at the store. I'll rent it again and finish it when I'm bored of my other games. I don't think Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is as good as either of those games but it'll take long enough to finish that I was better off buying it at Gamestop for $18 used than I would've been renting it at $7 per week.

    One thing Nintendo does pretty well with their in-house games is make them long enough to be buyers instead of renters. There's no way Zelda, Metroid, or Paper Mario are renters. It would be a lot cheaper just to buy the game.

    In my opinion, most party games are usually better as renters. Just rent it when there are people over. That way you don't get better at it than everyone else. The only exception I ever make to that rule is Bomberman. I'll always buy Bomberman.

    I know a few people who buy on eBay and sell on eBay. They usually end up losing about $10 for the couple of weeks they own the game through eBay listing costs, shipping, and PayPal credit card fees. I'm tempted to try that myself but I'm not authorizing my PayPal account until I get around to setting up a bank account that's "safe" for PayPal. I'm not letting them touch the same bank account I pay my bills through.
