Now I have to wait until Christmas to play it...

The only other game I got was Super Mario Galaxy, which I'm sure will be great.

What else should I get (including online downloadable bullcorn)?

Well I'm staying off the online 'bullcorn' because I think you should know well enough what classic system games blow and not once you see the list.

Far as on the system goes for the kid I'd look into anything with Spongebob or Cars as they were done well by THQ. Elebits is good for anyone. Kids also like the little things in Wii Play, plus you'll need 2 controllers really anyways so it's just $10 for all those cheap quicky fun things of which 1/2 are pretty good. I'd also recommend Super Paper Mario for a mix of SMB classic with some Paper Mario rpg elements and tons of story tossed in. Mario Party I understand was the first good one since like the original 1 or 2 so that's a good idea. On the older end of things CoD3 is damn fine, but MOH Heroes 2 really 'uses' the system, has ea nation online (no gay codes), runs like a champ. Metroid depending how you are on kids playing is good, and at the least for you too (and MOH is its equal too, EA did a great job.) If you don't mind an older game brought back, Godfather is seriously impressive with the wii controller as those 3rd person 3D worlds actually are navigatable, aimable, and drivable in a good way finally, camera too.

Honestly I'd stay away from Zelda unless you can dedicate a good 2 hours a shot at playing it because it still uses that archaic save system the 2D went by, and if you don't hit a spot you're sent WAAAAAY back like a good 10-20 min or worse at times as the game is huge and with the loss of some things. Total horseshit, plus the primary attack is just wagging the controller which sucks as the secondary like bow and arrow is perfect, simulating like a real bow would work...go fig on that tardation. It's overrated basically...I'd call it the Wii's FF7.

Both my kids absolutely adore it (my 7 year old asked if we could download Contra 3: The Alien Wars on virtual console, I shed a tear), and it's a blast to play. I picked up Wario Ware, it loses it's appeal pretty quick (decent for a rental, at least), and I've already played through Zelda. Working on Corruption right now (which is fucking awesome, by the way).

Defintely a good buy - and the kids love making their Mii's.

It got mixed reviews for sure, depended on a persons taste I think to a degree. But I did read that as far as kids go, it's a great title. Remember long time ago you had a high tolerance for bullshit, stupid, or simple stuff in games too and enjoyed it. ;)

Everyone seems to agree that ChoroQ and Road Trip are better, but apparently the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube versions of Cars play pretty well and aren't too shabby. I'm looking forward to playing through it at some point (I own it on Xbox).

Go figure though...a Wii game with bad controls. NO WAY! :)

My wife's (yah I'm hitched now) brother and wife lucked into a Wii a few days ago. Learned about it today accidentally bumping into her parents at the mall a couple hours ago. Seems they came over and all did baseball and boxing and got hooked on it too...and they've never touched a game in their lives ever and got way into it. Love to hear those long shot appeal stories like that.
