Satoru, you can stop looking at me like that. I've done what you asked. Like one million other Australians, I am now the owner of a Wii. And, well... it feels a little strange.
The first console I bought was the Super Nintendo back in - I think - 1993. Before that, my grandparents had an Atari 2600 that they used to amuse us kids during school holidays, while at home I did all my formative gaming on the PC and Commodore 64. But the SNES was special; my first console, the first games hardware I'd bought with my own money, and the home of Super Metroid, A Link to the Past, Mario Kart, Legend of the Mystical Ninja and many other classic games. So I've always had an affinity for Nintendo even through the darker days of the N64 (Super Mario 64, Ocarina, Mario Tennis, Goldeneye, Waverace) and the Cube (Sunshine, Monkey Ball, Metroid Prime), both of which I bought shortly after they launched.
The Wii, though? Something was always holding me back from taking that plunge. I'm an experienced or "hardcore" gamer and, although I'd enjoyed a number of Wii titles over the last couple of years, the perception remained that it simply wasn't for me. But of course, to do my job properly, I need to own all three consoles (and two handhelds and a PC) and I need to be sampling the best and worst of what each system has to offer. So I did it. I bought a Wii yesterday, and with it, copies of Super Mario Galaxy and Super Paper Mario. And now I want to ask you: what other games do I need to get? I'm thinking of picking up Wii Fit and No More Heroes, but what else should I investigate? What's on WiiWare? And, finally, what advice would you give to a new Wii owner?
