Default wii game recommendation

we don't have much, I'm looking for something dad would have fun playing when everyone is in bed, but nothing overly violent so that the kids could give it a try if they wanted.

I have a cheap game called deer drive where you hunt deer and moose and shoot bears to protect yourself and squirrels and rabbits for fun. I have a fishing one to that was cheap. I hear the lego games are fun, but I haven't splurged for those yet.

What do you have? I just bought Wii ski and snowboard. It's okay. My favorite game is Super Mario Bros Wii. Both of my boys love it and so do I. It's great. Mario Kart is fun too. Most of the other games I have are Lego and other kids games. Buy a 360 for Daddy games and you can join Fondest, Darth, willsdad and others online. It's a blast.

I agree the hunting games are pretty good.

For the record I LOVE the lego games on the 360, but on the Wii they blow. At least in my opinion. Much harder to play and not as intuitive. WE have star wars and Indiana on the wii and we barely play them. WHo knows....maybe someday.

Just got a Wii this weekend. We have active, fit and resort. I want to get the deer hunter game that comes with the gun. Looks like fun.

Mario cart is a BLAST! THe kids love it and find myself playing it when they are not around. Also, Mario Party is really fun too! We have a bunch of kids games.....Sonic and Mario at the Olympics is really fun too....My daughter and I play together and find myself saying let me do this one, but try and keep it to myself.

You probably have it already, but Wii sports is fun for all. My kids and I have bowling tourneys and i play tennis and baseball sometimes by myself.

Lego Star Wars wii is actually pretty fun. Yes the 360 version is better, but the wii version is still a blast.

I also liked the lego starwars. MarioKart is a blast especially non-sober. Zelda was fun as a "daddy game" but not over the top. Resident evil, not so much. The kids get a kick out of watching us play guitar hero too...
