I'm surprised nobody mentioned the game that is 2nd highest rated in the GameSpot reviews, and it gets my pick. Actually, tie for first. That would be Madden NFL '07. David V .

I'll say Super Mario Galaxy or Metroid Prime 3. Nintendo needs to make more ads and needs to make more promotions like Nintendo did before the release. chris3116
I think they'd better crank up the manufacturing before they do that. On almost NO advertising, there are nearly no Wiis in the whole St. Louis metro area, and every store sells out within an hour of people getting wind that they're in stock. My bet is on Super Mario Galaxy as the killer game, among those already announced. Any serious baseball game would also sell Wiis. David V .

Tiger Woods is set to come out on March 15th.

EA made mention of Fight Night for Wii.

And Take-Two made mention of MLB 2K for Wii.

NCAA football will come in due time, since Madden sold so well.

It might be a little longer before we see basketball or hockey on Wii. This is primarily because Wii Sports serves as a template for the other games. There's no basketball or hockey in Wii Sports, so the developers will have to figure it out from the ground up.

Here's what I know: Madden '08 is definitely on the Wii. I saw Electronics Boutique taking pre-orders for it. EA said, in the interview here on GameSpot on Madden '07, that hockey is in the works. EA has brought out one or two VC titles as well (such as SimCity). And 2K dropped the ball. They may have said they're embracing the Wii back in June of last year, but they haven't followed through. No doubt they gambled and threw their support behind the PS3. There's not presently a single Wii title on their release schedule, and only one mention ever of one, for The Bigs in Q4. EA looks to me to be committed to the Wii. They'll benefit where 2K loses. (They're already doing so on the PC.) David V .

Original and the best; Nintendocreativeminded
HUH???!?! Original what? Video game console? Where did you get that idea? Here's a history lesson, son: 1978: Atari 2600 1979: Mattel Intellivision 1980: Magnavox Odyssey2 1982: Atari 5200 1982: Colecovision 1985: Atari 7800 1986: Nintendo Entertainment System Maybe best, but certainly not original.

18..this post is everywhere..badfish420420
What I'm curious about is.....*why* is this question everywhere? I'm wondering if they're all started by PS3 f@nb0yz feeling stupid for spending $600 on bleeding edge technology. David V .

just wondering cuz the wii is supposedly for younger people from what ive heard... im almost 17Are_Ya_Ready
No doubt you heard that from a PS3 or 360 owner. It's a common epithet they like to use to shame people into rationalizing their own purchase. I'm 39, and my son is 7. We've been playing together. :-)

also do u have any other next-gen system? i have the 360

I have a PC. Video game consoles can't handle Civilization. David V .

Diddy Kong Racing Though it was probably too obscure a title, I would love to have Destruction Derby 64 :-) My son would like to have Hot Wheels Turbo Racing and Yoshi's Story. David V .

what is the E word o.O?Simba_Dude
I had to look a couple of times myself to figure out what he was referring to. At the risk of getting the thread locked....the E word is "emulator". Apparently there are copyright issues with such animals. Though I'm not sure why GameSpot would freak out over mention of it -- they exist, and ain't nothing no one can do 'bout it. I'm not sure why they would lock the thread though, unless they though we were trying to convert the GameSpot forums to a warez bazaar. :-) David V .

I like the idea of using the steering wheel attachment thing.sentay0
I like the idea too, but I do understand the whole "holding the thing up for hours" problem. What would be cool would be a *console* steering wheel that the Wii remote would fit into. In baseball you want a free and clear control to use as a bat, but none of us drive with a disembodied steering wheel! David V .

My bad - spelt it wrong, but come on you know what Ii meant.JarrodTagni
Okay, I've been on the Internet for 19 years and that's the first time I've ever seen anyone misspell "I". :-) (Sorry, not meaning to be annoying but I couldn't resist. :-)
