Default Nintendo Wii Help

So.....I win the grand prize in my office's drawing.....a Nintendo Wii. Honestly, I never had a previous interest in the machine, but since I have one now I intend to get the most out of it. I've been a X-Box 360 owner for little over 3 years now (still haven't found time to crack open my Dragon Age yet). At any rate, does anyone have any recommendations for games/ accessories for this device? I've been reading up on it here & there, but haven't made any final determinations as to what to get.

I am anti motion waggle...and I am a huge 360 guy...but I think the Wii is amazing.

Below is everything I think is flawless with the Wii:

Games:
1. Mario Kart Wii
2. New Super Mario Bros. Wii
3. Punchout!!!
4. Super Mario Galaxy

Accessories:
1. Classic Controller
2. High Def Cables (check monoprice)
3. Lots of Wii points for old school games


Whatever you do, youtube and check reviews for whatever games interest you as the crap to good ratio for Wii games is the highest in console history.

My co-worker just told me he'd loan me his Super Mario Galaxy. I ordered some "HD" cables from an Amazon vendor (I checked monoprice naturally, but found a better deal elsewhere this time).....I guess I'll try to find a good deal on additional controllers also.

I hang out on Gamespot from time to time & I've seen what you mean....a good bit of the Wii's games do not rate well AT ALL. But I'm not complaining. Heck, I have a FREE alternative to my X360.

I just picked up the new Super Mario Bros. for Wii. It's pretty good, a total throw-back to the old NES games. I even got my wife to play for a bit.

Okay guys, thanks for the input....finally got everything hooked with the "Enhanced" Def Cables & all.....not bad at all (graphically, it's no X-360 or PS3, but doesn't suck either I think). It's definitely good for when family & friends are over for. Punch Out is really cool & even with as disorienting as it is, I've enjoy Super Mario Galaxy as well. I couldn't really find a good deal on an additional controller, so I just got one from Best Buy....at least I did have a $25 gift card. Time has not permitted me to check into the old school games as of yet.
