This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Ummm...I can only think of a few RPG's in general.

Opoona is getting mixed reviews. There some that love it's quikiness, and some that hate it's simplicity.

DragonQuest Swords is in the same boat.

There's some great stuff on the Virtual Console (Fantasy Star springs to mind) though.

Legend of Zelda is pretty simple but well worth it. I spent 50 hours playing it and can't say it got bored at any time. One or twice I had to look quizzically at the TV and wonder if someone had put acid in my tea, though! ;)

Depends what you want in an RPG.  If you want something of a Sandbox game like Oblivion, then nothing even comes close on the Wii.  If you want a more action oriented game where you have some freedom then Zelda: Twilight Princes is really fun.

If you want a sort of old school encounter to encounter group style rpg then Fire Emblem is good, you go battle to battle collect equipment and keep chugging along.

If you want more story driven games then there are a two really good survival horror style games Resident Evil 4 and Obscure: The aftermath that are really good in the survival and horror faction.

Just depends on what you are looking for when you say RPG.

OK...I'll add the caveat that it's for 6 and 7 years olds (and up)...Zelda still good, I assume? Others?

I'll just go the ol' rental route since I don't see a lot of choices.  Thank God for PS2 and PC for CRPGs for all their glory and faults.

As the Wii accepts Gamecube games, you could get older stuff like Skies of Arcadia (great game) or Summoner.

If you use GC games, you'll need a GC controller and GC memory card.

Which I didn't realise when I bought myself RE:Zero :(
