    So i'm living with 3 other house mates and we're all university students. We have a Wii with 2 Wiimotes in the living room but because we're quite busy, we don't get much chance to relax. Any long story driven games are out of the question and we just want something that is quick and fun. Anyone have any recommendations? So far we have Mario Kart Wii and Just Dance.

    I assume your console is homebrew enabled? Below are Wii, Wiiware and Gamecube selections only. Besides that, also keep in mind, emulators like FBA for arcade roms, SNES9X for SNES classics, Wii64 for N64, GenPlus for Sega 8-16bit etc. so you have those systems' library too to consider if you like. Anyway, Wii, Wiiware and GC, buying/playing recommendations, ideal for local multiplayer:

    House of the dead overkill was really fun to play and finish in co-op ( while drinking beers with my brother ) , highly recommended !

    Well, on-rails shooters generally are fun to play with a pal, you just shoot stuff and have a good time.
    Also can't go wrong with Mario Kart Wii or platformers like DK returns, New Super Mario Bros or Rayman.
