    Only a few for now, will update.

    NOTE: Most of these games will require the original PC files, google will help you find some of these though some are freeware now.

    I'll need help as there are maybe some I've missed but I'm lacking time to find all today. So if you know of more homebrew ports or if the above have been updated since then feel free to tell.

    Did anyone have Tyrian working ?!?! Mine stops at the title screen and no more controllers are recognised.

    I would also just love Out of this World to be ported !!

    I have Quake and it works great. But I mostly play Quake on my PSP since Quake's crappy graphics don't look way too bad on a PSP screen.

    Does the linked version of Tyrian work? I remember that the older version stopped working when the HBC changed the way it handles .elf files.

    This is a good idea but there should also be a list of ports that should be ported that haven't been ported that are good games.

    Well as for tyrian, it works perfect over here. Except sometimes I have to reboot the console because the time for controller detection is short.

    Could one (or both) of the old warcrafts (warcraft 1: Orc & humans) & or Warcraft 2 (Tides of darkness, beyond the dark portal) be ported?

    Online Scorched Earth would would end my social life. God help us all. I agree with the above posts for some RTS on the Wii too.

    I'm wondering, is a port of the PC game The Sims 2 possible? Its requirements to run on Windows fit nicely on the Wii, perhaps with some watering down it could run nicely.

    I know ... I'm asking for way too much, aren't I?

    I wouldn't mind if X-com 1 and 2 were released for the Wii. Dosbox is a pain to use and the DS homebrew version was never finished. Shame, as the DS was the perfect platform for it.

    *BUMP*
    I don't see Quake II nor the Quake II CTF version up there...

    And you should probably use http://wiibrew.org/wiki/ for the homebrew links. It's updated regularly.
