    So I gotta Wii for Christmas...

    I really can't beleive it! My wife bitched and moaned about my Super Nintendo when we first met and that was the first thing that came up missing when we moved in together. Now she buys me a Wii for Christmas!?!?
    You think she's trying to get rid of me?

    Oh well! At least I'll have a Wii!

    What do I need to get for it? Extra controller? Certain games?
    ect.
    Can I play NCAA Football with it? Do I need a certain controller for that?
    I hooked up the internet but what can I do with it on the internet?

    This probably means you won't be getting any hanky-panky for a long time.

    Wii sports (but don't try the golf game here... it will piss you off)

    Zelda: Twilight Princess

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Hardware: You need at least 2 nunchucks. I recommend having all 4 controllers. You don't need extra memory. DO buy at least one thing of points to buy vintage games off the net. I find myself playing those a LOT. I would buy at least one old school controller for the wii for this very purpose. Also, the Wii is not HD, but you can increase the resolution by buying an additional connector for it. I do recommend this if you have a 42+" TV. You can find it for $15 at Walmart.
    NOTE: Buying WiiPlay is a good idea since it comes with an extra controller giving you the game for almost free.

    Software:
    Mariot Kart Wii is a must.
    Rock band is really fun with the spouse and teen-aged kids. This is a really hit and miss game for parties.
    Super Mario Galaxy is fantastic.
    Mario Party is ok... Really good if you have kids.
    Super Smash Brothers Brawl was pretty good.
    All of the Lego series are pretty good. GREAT if you have a 12 year old son to play with.
    I sold my Wii Fit. It's not really my cup of tea. My wife thought it was OK...
    Madden is just soooo much betteron other consoles... This just wasn't made for football games.

    If you have a genre of game that you enjoy, let me know and I may know of some games that are decent in that genre.

    I would recommend a charging station for your controllers, comes with two battery packs and charging stand.

    How far can you hit your drives? I tried it once and was only able to get about 120 or 130 yard drives, but since that's about my usual real golf drive I thought it was probably accurate.

    I don't remember.... I just remember that chipping and putting were impossible on that game. I would hope that Tigger Woods golf would be better, but I haven't tried it.

    Now that you have me thinking about it, I'd like to see if Dwayne swings a Wii remote the same as this normal swing. The step back thing would kill me to see on the Wii!!!

    Tiger Woods golf is AMAZING on the Wii..

    Much better and more realistic than Wii Sports Golf.

    Yep, been there, done that more than I should have - but always ready to do it again.

    Doc's drives are amazingly long even if they are OB. I remember one par 5 he kept it in bounds and I used a pitching wedge to hit the green on the 2nd shot - rare territory for me.

    On a related subject: Coming up on ABC news is a report that titanium golf clubs may be a hazard to your hearing. No wonder I'm losing my hearing.
