Yeah it's mad fun. It almost certainly has the best games out right now, it just doesn't have the depth of the 360. Mario, Metroid, Zelda and Wii Sports might be the 4 best console exclusive games out right now, certainly the best 4 that I've played. Just plain fun. It just doesn't have the depth and the sports games aren't very good on it. The graphics power is also a fair bit behind, but they are seriously fun and cheap, which is a great combo.

I think the problem with Wii is that not a lot of "standard" games on there. It's lacking in racers, sports and Rpgs in particular. If it weren't for my PC I'd most likely have purchased a 360 to go along with it by now. The games it does have though are awesome. By far I have more fun playing Wii with friends than I do playing a FPS/RTS online sitting solo at my PC.

The games on the Wii are vastly different to any sort of other consoles I've played before. Which is a good thing, shows their individuality.

I only got my Wii at Xmas, so only got a few games, but will be making some more purchases soon.

Mario Strikers Charged Football - Very fun game! The game itself doesn't have much life in the league mode or whatever its called, but going online is very fun. It's really easy to find opponents, and you get to see your overall record against everyone else in the world. It resets itself after every week though which is good. So if you play online for hours and hours you'll get yourself in top 200-300 players. Sometimes gets frustrating because of players who overuse certain character moves which many regard as not fair and a cheap way of winning, and of course you'll always get the sore losers who disconnect because your giving them a whooping! Each match lasts 3 minutes, and playing people online is a best of 3 series of matches. I played the number 1 player in the world last night (wonder what the odds of getting him/her as my opponent out of the thousands online at the same). Of course I lost the best of 3 series, but I only lost 2-1 in the first match and 5-2 in the second match, which might sound bad, but in this game they are pretty respectable scores.

Guitar Hero 3 - Haven't played it much myself but my Dad has been hooked on it for hours, even though most of his time has been spent in the tutorial

Wiisports - Of course most of us know about this one, and its pretty fun in small doses. I hadn't been given any games over xmas until I bought them, so I had to play Wiisports for a few days. Some very fun mini games but not something thats going to keep you entertained for weeks on end.

I intend to buy Super Mario Galaxy soon next time I can be bothered to go shopping.

EDIT: I've also heard NBA Live 08 for Wii is just terrible. No dynasty mode, PS2 like graphics, and unlike most Wii games, the controls are not quite as responsive as usual.

Co-signed on that one, but i think if they were to notch the graphics up they would be more expensive. They are ridiculous fun for a reasonable price... i liked wii play alot... no one else find that game fun??

did you collect all 120 stars? some of the later unlockable levels got pretty tough i thought.

i think it's the best platformer ever made, and completely redefines the genre. they put more effort and attention to detail into level design than i've ever seen.

it's also the best graphical representation on the wii. a wii is seriously wasted without this game at this point in it's life cycle tbh imo.

It's easy until you unlock Luigi, and have to start over with him. Luigi slides whenever you stop, plus he's faster and can jump higher/farther.

Luigi = Hard Mode

Plus, you'll find that the last 20 stars can be difficult. Some of the purple coin comets are a *****.

Anyway, I've been playing Guiater Hero III and Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles. Both are very fun. There are enough good games out for the Wii. Even more to come.
