    Yes, Nintendo's brilliant marketing of making them so sparse and me walking into Best Buy at the right time landed me the last one.

    I haven't opened it yet, though. I wanted to see what games you guys recommend before I break the seal (and I mean triple A games, not first person shooters that I point the Wiimote to play). And I already own Zelda on GC. I know Paper Mario is on my list, and I love some of the Genesis games that are on their Arcade. But what other games are out or coming out that are worthy of attention.

    I very strongly recommend wario ware. The 16-player versus mode is the kind of frantic fun that nintendo always wanted mario party to be.

    Don't get Mario Party, it sucks.

    hahah, yeah, it was great calling people after I got it. I called my girlfriend and said "I got a Wii" and she said "yes I know". But she knew what I was talking about.

    And I called my cousin and said "I have my wii sitting on the table" and he had no idea what the hell I was talking about.

    If you're in a band Mike, then don't worry about the Wii. The band days are the best days ever. More fun than swinging motion-sensor dildo around and watching Mario react in kind :D  Spending time playing music stays with you forever. The Wii Wiill pass with time, hahahahaha

    Meh, I don't pay attention to music as much as I pay attention to games, and I play 4 instruments!

    For games, I would still recommend Zelda even if you already have it, unless you already beat it. If you get at least 1 FPS, get COD3 or RE4. If you want, get Transformers just for being transformers, though don't get it unless it's on sale.

    Wario Ware, Mario Strikers , Zelda, Paper Mario, and Resident Evil 4 are must haves.

    Especially Paper Mario.

    Paper Mario is pure fun, and I love the storyline, even for an E game. It's a tad short, though...

    Wii Play is great for multiplayer and the free wiimote ain't too shabby.

    RE4 is not FPS. But you should get it anyways.

    Super Paper Mario is kinda short, but if you need an extra dose of Paper Mario, there's always the 64 version on the shop channel. Oh, and buy Call of Duty 4.

    Zelda is awesome. But Super Smash Bros Brawl will be even better when it comes out during the holidays. :D

    There's a Dragon Warrior game that I want to buy for it too, but I think the game is on Rails and I hate games like that. If I wanted a rail game, I'd buy an old-school gallery shooter. Hopefully the game gives you some kind of movement control.

    Nevermind :(

    get RE4 unless you have it on PS2/GC/PC already.

    Yes, Paper Mario.

    Metal Slug Anthology if you like old arcade side-scrollers. That's 7 games for $40 right there.

    I like Marvel Ultimate Alliance, the controls on Wii really aren't that bad, you can do the same attacks by just spamming A.

    TF on Wii is fun yes, but just buy it on sale or used.

    I saw someome mention Spider-Man 3, no. Game is only fun for the first half hour afterwards it's boring, repetitive and has crapola graphics.

    Save up for Metroid Prime 3 Corruption which comes out later this month.
