    If I am allowed to include LAN as offline then basically everything.

    Online. Things that might be able to be play by email, so turn based games really. Also anything that needs thousands of players and a really persistent server.

    wat.

    Offline, probably all fighting games. That "in the room" experience is what makes it fun.
    Online, probably shooters and stuff that's just easier to Skype over.

    Is it that shocking to see someone loves online games on the Wii? Brawl is a given and Goldeneye is amazing as is the community. The skype and clan war thing is what puts the topping on the cake :)

    Brawl has terrible connectivity and Goldeneye wasn't THAT great. Plus like every online community is dead by now. The Wii always had a terrible infrastructure on top of it.

    Goldeneye community isn't dead. Yeah, the brawl connectivity was a little messy but it doesn't take away from the fun game time. What made GE great was the community and the experience. It was very addicting for me and for others. I played MW3 on PS3 and loved it too.

    Please say that was one of those dramatic understatements. I would say brawl was behind the times being even folks in 1997/1999 understood things that Nintendo hosed up ( http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/131781/the_internet_sucks_or_what_i_.php ) with that.

    Now I am very much on the "smash brothers, 'tis not competitive or at least it has yet to spawn a competitive scene" side of things so I am not too upset about the lack of crazy low latency but it was broken on the just messing around level.

    The connection wasn't perfect. Lag interrupted my time often but I liked it enough to continue playing everyday. I was a serious player (playing to own) and a mess around player (just goofing around). Plus, not only was it fun online, the single player aspect of the entire game was phenomenal. Brawl was the reason I bought a Wii.

    I don't know, Resident Evil 4's online mode was pretty great.

    Offline: everything. I really don't like to play online, mainly because I'm either playing the game with a few friends while we're in the same room (because it's fun and mostly nonsensical), or I'm playing a single player game. I've never understood the whole fascination with online games that's so prevalent these days.

    I do pretty much all my gaming offline. Either singleplayer or - when I've got someone over - couch co-op. I only go online when I've got enough of the basics down to know (most of) the ins and outs, as I don't want to be "that guy" that does all the retarded things that ruin it for others. But even then, there's hardly any appeal to me.

    Its a real shame that nintendo isnt taking this whole "advancing technology" and the "internet" seriously. Brawl could have been a whole lot of fun online, with fleshed out game modes and kept alive with DLC. But their ineptitude seems to be catching up to them as the gap widens as the console march moves into the HD relm as beyond.

    I like playing most games offline and alone. The only games I really enjoyed online where obvious ones like Halo.
