My partner is a casual, infrequent gamer. When she does play games, they're usually word games or bejeweled-type games on her laptop. I've had her try NSMBWii, Wii Sports/Resort, and a couple others, but there is only one game that has ever caught her interest on Wii: Kirby's Epic Yarn. She simply loves playing it, and even talks to her friends about it. I've had a lot of fun playing with her, but since she's not big on collecting items, we don't have much left to do in Kirby now that we've beat every level. I want to play another game with her, but it's tough to find one. I asked her what she liked about Kirby, and I was told two things: The art style - i.e. "They made this game at Joann Fabric" The easiness - i.e. "You don't die you just poop out coins" Kirby's Epic Yarn didn't seem unique to me at first, but I honestly can't think of any other non-death 2D sidescrollers with cute graphics across any platform, and I've been gaming since my Atari 2600. NSMBWii, by the way, is "too hard" and "not cute."
