    I'm a big fan of the Wii Remote, and I'd like to get some games that use it well.
    Please do not list games, that only use it as an optional input device (for example: Mario Kart 8 or Super Mario 3D World).

    technically everything uses gamepad default I believe unless you count those multiplayer party games.

    Literally all games use the gamepad as the primary control scheme. Most other games just have it as another option for controlling the game, or for multiplayer.

    I hate the nun chuck, I would rather play everything with my GC controller.

    GC controllers are pretty great, but I find nunchuck plus wiimote most comfortable because of my huge hands. I also don't like having the GC wire tether me close to my console.

    i enjoy playing first person shooters with the wii-mote. Goldeneye 007 on wii still has online servers up.
    I also liked red steel 2. It made good use of the motion Plus

    Mainly Wii U, but you can comment Wii games too.
    My Smash Brawl should be arriving today. :^)

    Brawl is awful, and there's a section of Wii games on the eShop.
    I recommend the Mario Galaxy games, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Resident Evil 4

    Shame on you for not liking Metroid Prime, and it's not really all that scary, unless you are easily scared. It's more action packed compared to the previous games

    I recommend you get the last Wiimote supported shooters Call of Duty BO2 and Ghosts.
    There is also a hunting game (Cabela's ...) and Zombie U, both the former is extremely slow when it comes to turning and the latter only features Wiimote controls in the asymmetrical 1on1 local MP (and is also slow concerning turning speed).

    The 2 Call of Duty games have great Wiimote controls with tons of options (like the Wii predecessors).

    Other than that I can't think of many other W+Nunchul titles. Nintendoland has a great local MP (Metroid Blast) with W+N, but that's about it (I think). Which is really a shame, I think Splatoon could have had good W+N controls as well as Starfox Zero.

    Even though I love the gamepad, I blame Nintendo for not enforcing more Wiimote support. Why the hell does the port of Resident Evil Revelations not have Wiimote support despite gamers calling RE4 Wii the headshot edition? Lazy ports all over the place.
