Hello, I've talked to some professional mod people like Ben J. Heckendorn. He said it was $70 dollars a hour to connect the Wiimote/nunchuck together and that's too expensive, See i can hold the nunchuck with my left hand ( i have cerebral palsy) but i cant push the buttons on the nunchuck, my hand is too weak. So i was wondering how many games don't require the nunchuck.

I don't know. If I had to guess, I'd say maybe 1/4 don't need the nunchuck. Most game reviews worth their salt describe how you control a game. If I were you, I'd read reviews of games and make a list of the ones you think you'll be able to play, and see if the list is long enough to make buying a Wii worthwhile.

Well, Endless Ocean is a nice, relaxing game that requires only the use of the Wii Remote. You point at the screen with the remote and press the "B" button to direct you where to go. I will warn you though, some people really don't like this game. Read the review (I linked it up there for you) and if it seems like your type of thing, go for it (it's only $30).

Another game that only uses the Remote is Zack and Wiki. This is a really fun point-and-click adventure, but the puzzles can be very challenging toward the end of the game. I reccomend it though, it's a cool little game (Also, I think the price went down to $30 as well, but it might be hard to find because they didn't make a whole lot of copies).

Mario Party 8 also does not require a Nunchuk. There is a small simgle-player componant that uses it, but you aren't forced to play it to be able to play the game. This game is good with a group of friends or family members.

There are a lot more games as well, this isn't a full list obviously. You could always look at this list and check out the reviews and see if they require the Nunchuk at all.

Good luck, and happy shopping.

Pretty much all the good, epic ones require a Nunchuck, aside from a few. 4/5 of the game in Wii Sports require only the Wii Remote, Excite Truck only uses the Wii Remote, Sonic and the Secret Rings only uses the Wii Remote, I think, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz's single player mode only uses the Wii Remote. The very best game that only uses the Wii Remote, though, is definitely Super Paper Mario.

Except for the fact that you need to press buttons with your left hand.

I'd say more games require the nunchuck than games that dont.

I think he means a guy will build him a custom device that includes the remote and nunchuck, but he charges $70 and hour.

I don't think it's been mentioned before, but Warioware is also an excellent game that only requires the wiimote.

Hey Occhsrebel, I don't know if you're still here right now, but check out this Wii Remote Mod. I think it might be something you'd benefit from:

I hope that's something that might help.
