i know this sounds like a stupid question, but i can't figure out how to pause games.

i just got my wii and only have a couple of games (zelda tp, tiger woods 08).

in zelda i just goto a menu screen to pause. is there any other way ?

i also picked up a gamecube controller and memory card so i can play resident evil games (i never had a system to play these on so i'm pretty psyched to play all the re games), but again no real way to pause other than going into a menu screen.

anyone have any other ways to pause or is that the only way to pause ?

You can either press the "Home" button, which will paus the game and take you to the console's menu, or you can press the "+" button, which is usually (if not always) the paus button for Wii games.

Press the start button on the gamecube controller, other wise known as the pause button :wink:

It's usually "+" or the home button. But in many games this still lets time trickle by in games.
