    Mario Galaxy is aces (made me finally not hate my Wii). Boom Blox and De Blob look pretty good too.

    Resi 4 - if you never played it on the PS2/Gamecube then now's as good a time as anyway.

    If you're into storylines, and don't mind them getting very wacky, you should buy the two Trauma Center games, they're both excellent and have all sorts of super drama medical explanations of life, death and storyline-spitting patients.

    As well, Dragon Quest Swords has a rather fleshed out storyline for an arcade game mixed with an RPG.

    If you don't mind really hard roguelike gameplay, or are willing to go for something extremely bizarre, Baroque is great because it has a gradually revealing plot based on you dying, somewhat like Planescape: Torment and there's quite a bit you need to put together the pieces to understand (the game proper will only present so much of its plot to you).

    Disaster: Day of Crisis doesn't have a good storyline, and neither does Resident Evil 4, but if you haven't played either, the action is quite lovely in both and yet they have a lot of storyline detail to keep you occupied. In that vein, if you haven't played the older Resident Evil games, it may be worth it to play through Umbrella Chronicles too, especially if you like lightgun games, because it has a nice story digest of the series in general.

    No More Heroes is a prime choice as well, it's both a top-notch action game and its got a warped, fantastic story with awesomely drawn antagonists, great dialogue and a really greatly depicted protagonist.

    Of course, Twilight Princess is great, though not that story-oriented, it has more of the flair of a story-oriented game that Zelda always has.

    If you like playing old games, Secret of Mana and Phantasy Star IV are excellent choices, even today.

    Remember that Gamecube games will play on the Wii too. Have a look for Mario Kart Double Dash and Wind Waker, Donkey Konga and erm...

    Can't think of any others at the moment. Too much wine.

    If you don't mind totally ridiculous storylines and a plot that resembles Die Hard crossed with The Day After Tomorrow, get Disaster: DoC. Fucking hilariously cheesy.

    Endless Ocean is top, relaxing to play, and does have a storyline (not that much of one though, TBH). Okami is a brilliant RPG. Opoona is meant to be good, not played it myself.

    Umbrella Chronicles if you like the Resi games and fancy a bit of shooting. Ghost Squad if you want an out-and-out light gun game.

    Please get Okami. Please. It's a beautiful, fantastic game, and you will adore it. The port is handled perfectly imho.

    Get Okami first, then whatever everyone else recommends.

    Okami, 14.99. Think that's the cheapest place, unless you can get one from Zavvi or Woolies before they die.

    You've made me look a right cunt there, powerplay direct.

    Right, HMV are doing Okami in their exclusive packaging for 22.99.

    There's some Amazon sellers selling it for just over 12 (though about 4-5 p&p)

    haha, you really must like it.
    I must say I like sims games because you can't lose.
    However, sometimes I like an element of risk =D

    I heard that Okami is really hard, like controlling etc...
    I don't even know what it's about and I'm criticising it!

    =D

    Basic controls are piss-easy, think the criticism might have been for the brush strokes, which are akin to special moves when used in combat. TBH, when you learn a new one, it can be tricky to get the hang of, but you soon learn how to do it reliably (5-10 minutes). It's an excellent RPG where you play as a sun god/wolf and have to restore colour and light to the world. Best graphical style I've ever seen, superb gameplay.

    Ah, cool.
    I'm going to Meadowhall tomorrow (shopping centre)
    I'll peer in Game, HMV + Zavvi if it's open...

    Put it this way, if you get Okami and don't like it, I'll buy it off you. One of the shops in Meadowhall will definitely have a copy, it's a fairly big place...

    It's not hard at all really. It just depends on your attention span and your steady hand! :D There's nothing that a person who has gaming experience will have any bother with, especially if you're used to "proper" games on the Wii. It's maybe a bit more demanding than the usual party Wii wavy controls, but I salute it for that.

    I picked up Okami a while ago when Zavvi were doing it for 12.99. I honestly feel it's worth more, so don't let prices around the 20 mark put you off it. It's a 10/10 game imho, and doesn't deserve to disappear on the Wii as it did on PS2.

    Sadly, I think it already has. :(

    280k in NA and Europe, apparently.

    Wonder how it sold in Japan? Is Jin around, no doubt he knows. TBH I thought this would be massive in Japan, Japanese mythology, big Capcom game, etc. Apparently not.
