    Hey guys and gals,

    I just got a Wii a couple weeks ago and just found this site today. I was wondering if you guys have had the misfortune of wasting hard earned money on crappy POS games. What games have you tried that I (and anyone else) should avoid like the plague? (And I'm going to apologize in advance if this is a repost...I looked a couple pages in and didn't see a thread about it)

    Welcome to WiiChat.

    Luckily for me, I haven't come across any games that have been God awful. However, I heard that Wii Music and Alone In The Dark weren't the greatest of games.

    Yes, avoid Alone in the Dark.
    And try to avoid any shovelware, which you should be able to tell by the cover of the game.

    Mhmm, unfortunately, I have. Avoid the title "Winter Sports- The Ultimate Challenge". It was a waste of $30. Haha.

    Good call. I didn't think about including accessories in the thread title, but thanks! :up: I'll definitely keep that in mind.

    This thread ought to be renamed. Most games produced are a waste of money. A thread entitled "Games that aren't a waste of money" would produce a much smaller, comprehensible list.

    I think it's a pretty safe bet to avoid sports games for the most part.

    Mm, not really. I wouldn't mind getting NHL game because I loved it on PS2. The thing about Winter Sports is that there is like, 8 different events to choose from, but they are all crappy stuff. Like, all you have to do is bend the remote and twist it. It's not fun at all

    Not necessarily. Madden 09 is fun, and PES 2008, and now PES 2009, are awesome on the Wii.

    Also, as bradleyd pointed out, anything by Data Design Interactive, as well as Destineer, is likely pond scum.

    Yeah, most sports games I bought were awesome (besides Super Swing Golf). Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All Play and Madden NFL 09 All Play were awesome. Still playing Tiger Woods today.

    Just pick up the essentials on the Wii and you won't have any problem. The Mario games, MadWorld, and Brawl will do your Wii good!

    When I say most, I mean stuff like Deca Sports, or other relatively unknown, sometimes cartoony sports games. I agree with you guys though. The bigger name stuff like Madden, Tiger Woods, and PES will usually be pretty good.

    Funny, 'cause the cartoony sports games are the only ones I'm willing to play. I hate that Madden and Tiger Woods junk. And I don't even know what PES is.

    Anyway, I haven't technically bought any games yet (my Wii came with a few), but I think We Ski is probably the worst I've played so far. It's really boring. What I played of Twilight Princess (I rented it) wasn't all that great either, but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.

    Don't listen to him! The NYKO Perfect Shot is awesome. Much better than the Zapper (many industry analyst will agree with me). Also avoid any game that involves a "certain" blue hedgehog who has been stinking up gaming for the past 5 years now. Sonic Heroes was the last decent Sonic game. Never again will I buy another one, they have all been pure trash.

    Avoid Driver Parallel Line, it's a boring game and the controls are a mess.

    Sometimes it's a matter of personnal taste, for example I found that Nights Jouney Of Dreams was a total waste of money but others have found it very enjoyable. ;)

    By all costs, avoid Star Wars the Force Unleashed on the Wii. Most terrible peice of crap I ever had the displeasure of purchasing. This does not apply to its 360/PS3 counterparts, hwever. Those were excellent games. Simply stay away from most multi-platform titles that come out on the Wii. Wii does best with its exclusives (Mario, Brawl, etc.)
