What, where, why, Wii!
This may been asked a thousand times before, but no matter, I shall ask it again.
I am VERY LTTP in terms of just getting myself a Wii. I've agonized over this purchase several times in the past, but never had enough reason to jump into buying one just for myself. The main impetus this time, and the one that got it past the wife, is my daughters.
My youngest loves gaming to bits, so much so, blue isn't ever called just that, it's always Sonic Blue. My eldest however is getting bored 'just watching Daddy play'. This is where the Wii comes in. I think it's time for her to enter the game...
I need a list of games that would appeal to a 5 year old. She is a diverse little soul. She cries when I squish a little blue dude in Swarm, but wants me to 'keep fighting Daddy' when Lisa is kicking butt in VF5. She loves Pixar, but also Dreamworks. She likes her princesses, but they need to be able to kick butt and take names, not just lay in wait to be rescued.
Skylanders were great, but again, it got boring, fast, 'just watching'.
There is a bit of a sneaky Part B to this one too, that might appeal to the non-parents amongst us. I also would like a list of any Wii exclusive titles you think I need to track down for myself.
I have a functioning Cube, so I have enjoyed my Windwakers (Twilight Princess is still on the pile), Metroids and classics for that, but is there anything I need to get for this little N-box? I'm not fussy when it comes to pile additions. If it's good enough, I will venture into unknown territory in terms of genres, so cast the net wide. I would like my Wii pile to be definitive (if possible).
