I've been trying to not get angry at someone using the term "core games" unironically

Yes, the pigeon-holing of all games into either "core" or "casual" categories is yet another one of the many idiotic things that Microsoft has brought to the VG industry this generation. I shake my head everytime I have to fill out a Club Nintendo survey and it asks whether I thought the game was more core or casual. (Then I answer by flipping a coin.) I don't care if a game is more "core" or "casual", I just care that it's fun to play!

Hey NLife! I'm looking for some core/hardcore games to download to my Wii(WiiWare and Virtual Console). Any recommendations?

Mega Man 10 is an awesome hardcore WiiWare game. Cave Story, AYIM, and World of Goo are great hardcore games too, except you could find those 3 games for a lot less on your PC.

For the Virtual Console you could check out The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Monster World IV, Final Fantasy III, Chrono Trigger, and Strider.

700pts WiiWare:

Ant Nation
Astro Bugz Revenge (NA ONLY)
Big Kahuna Party (NA ONLY)
Carnival King (NA ONLY)
Cocoto Fishing Master
Cocoto Platform Jumper
ColorZ
Chronos Twins DX (EU ONLY)
Fantasy Slots (NA ONLY)
Gyrostarr (NA ONLY)
Pearl Harbor Trilogy
Pop
Space Trek (NA ONLY)
Target Toss Pro: Bags (NA ONLY)
Target Toss Pro: Lawn Darts (NA ONLY)
The Mystery of Whiterock Castle
Trenches Generals
VIP Casino Blackjack (NA ONLY)
Violin Paradise
101-in-1 Explosive Megamix
5 Arcade Gems

The Turbografx imports are 700pts as well, or you could get a 500pts WiiWare game with Pay&Play DLC.
Even better, get one of the many good games for 500 or 600pts. Makes more sense.

From the games listed above I can only recommend Ant Nation. Rated it 7/10.
It wasn't all that great though, and got repetitive but the idea was unique enough, with 100 levels and thousand of ants to level up individually and tons of achievements to have me spent 15 hours on it, and that was quite good value for the price (I'd buy a sequel that adds to the experience).
Chronos Twins DX is good if you're into difficult action platformers.
Pop was extremely repetitive and boring to me, but it's very polished for what it is (the soundtrack is pretty good).
Trenches Generals' controls felt broken and with only 15 campaign missions it's very short as well. It was interesting, but felt unfinished.
And The Mystery of Whiterock Castle has surprising flaws for a "spot the stuff" game. It could have been pretty good, but ultimately there are better, cheaper ones on WiiWare.
Haven't played the rest...

I think Carnival King is supposed to be half-decent, but it's short. You'd probably be better off with one of the 600-point Art Style games though.

Tell them that its stupid in the survey comments. Must be a European question. I don't remember being asked that in NA recently

I think it's the question they ask you in the eShop ratings: they always ask if the games are for everyone/gamers and whether the play is casual/intense, which almost always feels like they're asking the same question twice. I think I only gave opposite answers once, and it was for a game that was pretty much middle of the spectrum anyway.

@Xilef, I'd also recommend escape VeKtor, but you'd be better off just waiting for all 4 chapters to reach the eShop. If you download the original WiiWare version, you'll never be able to complete the entire series or unlock the additional content.

My Zoo is definately one of the worst games on WiiWare. With all DLC it is 900 Wii Points but if you really want a zoo game then you should get World of Zoo on retail. It's extremely cheap now, I found it used for 5 bucks. World of Zoo is from the same genre as My Zoo but infinitely better, with much more content, and much more animals, with more stuff to do and unlock, and especially with much better animations and vividness that is completely lacking in My Zoo. My Zoo should be called "My Robots Covered In Fur". It's that soulless. Not an 8/10 like in the review on this site, you better believe that.

Home Sweet Home is ok. It has 50 different houses/missions (plus your own house/freemode) so it's quite good content, but the gameplay is a mixed bag. The missions can be interesting, puzzling and creative, but the gameplay can become repetitive after awhile.

Penguins & Friends is a funny and strategic board game for up to 4 players. And that's the only way to play this in my opinion. I recommend this if you have 3 others to play with. Like with all party games you wouldn't play it for days but load it up every once in a while when enough people are in the mood for a bit of contest. On that note you should check out Jungle Speed as well.

Oh so penguins & friends is better to play with friends? I can't do that unless online. Thank you will get the other 2! :) I don't think I'll use the DLC for my zoo so it'll be a cheap game lol. ;)
