    Just wondering, what games do you guys play with your significant others? When I find something she really likes, Jen won't stop playing ... but it's tough finding those quality titles for casual gamers.

    Here's stuff that's been a huge success:
    Scene-It: Lights, Camera, Action (360)
    Scene-It: Box Office Smash (360)
    Rock Band 1 & 2 (360)
    Guitar Hero 3 (360)
    Buzz: Quiz Challenge (PS3)
    Little Big Planet (PS3)
    Castle Crashers (360)
    Boom Blox (Wii)
    Mario Party 8 (Wii)
    Wii Sports
    Tetris DS (NDS)
    Zoo Keeper (NDS)
    Planet Puzzle League (NDS)
    Katamari (360)

    Games that have failed pretty badly:
    Super Smash Bros: Brawl (Wii)
    Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)


    Suggestions? Hopefully what's listed above paints a story on what will work. : \

    My wife loves puzzle games, so.
    Super Street Fighter Puzzle (I think that is what it is called)
    Flow (Not sure why she likes this)
    that all I can think of at the moment that is not listed already.

    The fact that there is no Pixel Junk Monsters mentioned in this thread makes me very sad.

    I tried the Katamari games with her and she really disliked them... but I we got Guitar Hero with the intent of playing together, and that's worked okay from time to time. She dislikes Mario Kart because she nearly always loses (I even try to play far less agressively and she still ends up last or near last every time... I can't play worse than that or she'd know I was letting her win). Mario Galaxy fails completely as a two player game (who thought making that two player optional was a good idea). Super Paper Mario was okay... we'd take turns playing levels. The game's fairly easy, so it worked. DS games work better... Tetris DS, Cooking Mama, that kind of stuff plays pretty decent on two player.

    Right after the Wii came out we were doing a word search together and I had the idea that a work search game for Wii would work pretty good. Each person would just use a Wiimote and circle words with it.
