New Wii owner comes back to (and is loving) video games having left them 15 years ago

His name: Josh, a life-long friend of mine. The last console he owned? The Sega Saturn. (Bad way to go out, man.) New favorite games: Wii Sports, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Tiger Woods for starters.

To help rechristen him into the wide world of video games, what Wii games do you recommend he play? Keep in mind he’s really digging nostalgic games like side-scrolling Mario and Metroid Other M, in addition to “new way to control” games like the aforementioned Wii Sports and Tiger 10.

Any suggestions?
