    Hello everyone, I just wanted to know if there are any fan ported games for Wii, because I searched all around google and didn't find anything.

    Homebrew wise there's Doom, Wolfeinstein 3D, Quake, ScummVM (Loom, etc... ) and DosBox for PC games. Don't know what else you really mean, I hope you're not expecting like Assassins Creed or something.

    No, I was thinking about old pc games like Doom, or even PS2 games, sorry for not specify it. And about the wii having everything already, I was looking for more RPG games, because the Wii are not the best in this genre, of course it have Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, some Final Fantasy titles, but the overall is not the best, so I tried to search for some fan ported RPG for the console.

    Well I said that because I have been reading some reviews before getting the games, so if any of you have played one of the RPGs that have been classified as an bad game and you liked it, please I would be glad to know.

    As far as PS2 games and such... you need to realize that in order to port something, you need to have the source code (and resources) for it.

    Quake 2, for example, has the source available. Most PS2 games, however, do not.

    You're best bet for ps2 games is ones that were also on gamecube - in other words, not ps2 exclusive games. That's never going to happen like Rydian said.

    If you are a fan of old rpgs, DOSBox plays some of the Ultimas, and of course there's a lot of old console ones you can play via emulators. If you want modern RPGs though, you are out of luck.
