    Zack and Wiki - that should be a good one, and of course any of the other shooters, Ghost Squad, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, HotD 1 and 2.
    Mario Super Sluggers

    Unless you are left-handed you might have some difficulty playing games which require precise movements...

    But other than that, anything that only requires the Wiimote should be OK

    thanks for the answers! I think i will be playing Zack and Wiki, which i have the feeling i will like a lot. and maybe try some of the shooters like Resident evil and House of the dead Returns.
    The Korinpa games seem cool, which one of the two did you like the most?
    also, has anyone tried Dragon Quest Swords? it can be played with only one hand, right?

    well, thanks again, and bye!

    Mercury Meltdown Revolution and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz are some other good one-handers.

    They're both great games. Excellent tilt controls, it just feels very good. If you only get one of them, get the second one. It has more levels. Mercury Meltdown Revolution also is a similar tilt controlled game and very nice too. This one is really puzzle orientated, very challenging!
    Boom Blox, also for 1 hand. Also very fun in multi player!
    Sam & Max is a point&click, so I believe that should be playable with just the wiimote

    also cool:
    scummvm (that's homebrew)
    With that you can play awesome point&click like Monkey Island 1,2 and 3 and Day of the Tentacle

    Thats a gamecube game. He wants wii titles.
    Try playing Boom Blox, Sam and Max, and any lightgun based game.

    just thought of another one: oopona
    it only uses the nunchuck. and it's a 'full' game with storyline and all, so i think you can have fun with that

    Ok, i liked this thread [​IMG]
    I assume that when you ask "only one hand" you mean you can't use the other hand to hold the Wiimote like an ordinary controller (sideways), am I correct?

    I'm compiling the games from the previous answers, and adding some of my own:

    Nunckuck Only - Confirmed (aka, I know they are)

    Bit. Trip. Beat. (rithym game)
    Bomberman Land (mini games)
    Boom Blox (destroy blocks)
    Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars ~The Director's Cut~ (point-and-click adventure)
    Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law (a bit like Phoenix Wright)
    Let's Tap (rithym game)
    Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity (puzzle like The Incredible Machine)
    Marble Saga Kororinpa (marble madness)
    Marble Saga Kororinpa 2 (marble madness)
    Mario Party 8 (mini games)
    Mercury Meltdown Revolution (marble madness)
    Nights: Journey of Dreams ("flying" platform o.O)
    Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles (on-rails gun game)
    Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis (ping-pong / table tennis)
    Sam and Max Season 1 (point-and-click adventure)
    Sega Superstars (tennis)
    Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz (marble madness)
    The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return (on-rails gun game)
    The House of the Dead Overkill (on-rails gun game)
    We Cheer (cheering game. Although it's meant to be played with 2 wiimotes, you can play with only 1)
    Wii Play (mini games)
    Wii Sports (mini games - except boxing)
    World of Goo (puzzle)
    Zack and Wiki and the Quest for Barbados Treasure (point-and-click adventure)

    Nunckuck Only - Unconfirmed (aka, I make no idea)
    Art Style: Orbiant
    Ghost Squad
    Oopona (Said to use Nunchuck only...)
    Mario Super Sluggers (soccer)

    Anymore else? Anyone? Let's make this a compendium [​IMG]

    ty to all that posted on this thread. I've recently inflamed an old injury in my wrist making it so i can only game one handed. This list gives me quite a bit to do over the next few weeks/months to pass the time. Good thing for me, I like rail shooters alot. Didn't think about many of the othrs list, quite a few of which i have. Looks like i'll be giving my wii a workout
