Longtime Nintendo fan here. I've had the NES, SNES, N64, and Gamecube for years. After having them packed away for quite some time (years) I recently dug them out and started playing them again. I never got a Wii when it was released in 2006, so just recently, I bought one on eBay. Hey, it only took me 8-9 years. Haha!

Anyway, I currently only have six Wii games.

Super Mario Galaxy
Super Mario Galaxy 2
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Donkey Kong Country Returns
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I think my next purchase will be Mario Kart Wii.

I guess Super Mario Galaxy 3 is a lost cause?

I've missed out on so much too. I really like all of the Zelda series games, have a lot of catching up to do on titles.

Well before this console slips away into extreme prices, I decided to take the plunge. I had an original white Wii but lost interest in it right before it started to get better games. The list below I thought warranted buying new.

Any game suggestions welcome!

Especially any 1st party games you think are must haves!!

I've seen a ton of used games around awhile ago & can't remember recent encounters of lots of used Wii games for sale. hmm..

Bought,

Black Wii Console
Black Wii Classic Controller Pro
Black Wii Nunchuk
Fosmon Wii Component A/V Cable

Games, (First Releases)

Super Mario Galaxy
Super Mario Galaxy 2
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Metroid Prime Trilogy - Collector's Edition
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Donkey Kong Country Returns

Wait, don't you own a Wii U?
Wii U is 100% backward compatible with Wii, so I don't understand why you bought a Wii.

There are tons of hidden gems on Wii.

For example
- a boy and his blob
- a shadow's tale
- Another Code R (Europe+JP only)
- Battalion Wars 2 (first party)
- Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (first party)
- Bit.Trip Complete
- Boom Blox / Boom Blox Party
- Bully (if you haven't played it yet on other consoles)
- de Blob 1 + 2 (first one was Wii exclusive and imo better than the second one)
- Dead Space: Extraction
- Deadly Creatures
- Disaster: Day Of Crisis (first party, Europe+JP only)
- Endless Ocean 1 + 2
- Fragile Dreams
- Ghostbusters (not the same game as on PS3+360, this went with comic style graphics, well made)
- Go Vacation
- GoldenEye 007
- Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis (comes in a case called Indiana Jones and Staff of Kings)
- Kirby Epic Yarn
- Klonoa (remake, exclusive to Wii)
- Kororinpa 1+2
- Little King's Story
- Metal Slug Anthology
- Munchables (somewhat like Katamari)
- New Play Control Pikmin 1+2 (first party)
- No More Heroes 1+2
- Okami
- Pandora's Tower
- Prince Of Persia: Forgotten Sands (different game than on PS3+360, actually a really well made and great game with lots of content)
- Project Zero 2 (EU+JP only)
- Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition
- Resident Evil REmake (classic survival horror)
- Resident Evil 0 (classic survival horror)
- Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles (railshooter)
- Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles (railshooter)
- Scarface World is yours
- Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
- Sin and Punishment 2
- Super Paper Mario (first party)
- The Last Story ("first" party, by creator of Final Fantasy)
- Wario Land: Shake Dimension (first party)
- WarioWare: Smooth Moves (first party)
- Wii Sports Resort (first party)
- Xenoblade Chronicles (first party, really expensive though, available for quite cheap on Wii U eShop, but not available in US eShop yet)
- Zack & Wiki

You can soft-mod the Wii and also Wii inside Wii U and then play those EU+JP games that way.

Yep, but wanted the real deal & in black!

I'll also only support physical Wii games unlike what I've done with Wii U & VC.

Thanks for the game recommendations. A lot of titles there I never heard of.

Normally reasonable price and Xenoblade don't work well together :P

You got a Classic Controller Pro already? The one that will connect to a Wiimote. You need at least one of those. I mean you could play REmake + Xenoblade using Wiimote, but those play better using a Classic Controller Pro. A Xenoblade bundle even came with a red one.

Yeah, Xenoblade stands outta the reasonable price range.

Here I thought Nintendo lacked controllers. You'll have to be more specific as to what works best.

I have these,

Wiimote
Wiimote Plus
Classic Controller
Classic Pro Controller
Pro Controller
Gamepad

Well, we got Xenoblade in Europe on Wii U eShop. It's even playable using the Wii U gamepad that way. NoA will surely follow in some time.
It's 20 EUR only.

Classic Pro Controller it is. Wii games only support either those, Classic Controllers or Wiimote/WiimotePlus. Well, some actually also support Gamecube controllers.

Pro controller + gamepad are Wii U. Pro controller works for Gamecube games on Wii U, but you need homebrew for that. Gamepad only works for some Wii games from the eShop.

So am curious just how backward the Wii U is now with discs + accessories?...

Mario Kart, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy are great starts. I downloaded a ton of old school games when I first got mine like 4 years ago. We have it but barely play it. It's a good system though...

I plan to set it up for my daughter when she gets a bit older, as well as give her my 360 since it has a ton of great games on it, and I'm moving on up to the One.

100% compatible. Everything will work.
Every single physical game.
Every single digital game (WiiWare+Virtual Console).

Even the Homebrew Channel works on Wii U.

Back then there was a single WiiWare game, which had problems and you weren't able to transfer it. This was solved ages ago, so as I said - everything will work.

Ok thanks, I'm gonna return the Wii. Can't believe they sent me Saudia Arabia Middle Eastern one. Upon further searches, I found Japan is also listed as the latest Wii model & people are getting that console now. So the last Wii console to hit North America was the Mini & it's only a Red/black console.

Guess I'll use that extra cash to get some accessories. I don't have the adapter for GameCube controllers yet for Wii U.

Wii Mini do not have internet nor storage support. They also miss out Gamecube support, if I remember correctly. There is no reason to get one of those.

That adapter only works for Smash Bros on Wii U (and Gamecube games in case you use Homebrew to run them, but you have to rip the Gamecube games on a regular Wii - maybe at a friend).

Right, the Gamecube controllers don't "work" of course like on Wii, because the controller ports are missing. Gamecube games also normally don't work, simply because the Wii U disc drive does not support the tiny Gamecube discs. But as I said - they do work using Homebrew after you ripped the disc images.
