    I just recently found out about Dolphin VR and its amazing, played about 1-2 hours of Mario Kart Wii in VR and it was a blast but now I want to try more games out lol. Anyone have some good recommendations for some good Wii/GameCube games to try out in VR? You are suppost to be able to map your touch controller as a wiimote+nunchuck so im going to try out Super Mario Galaxy sometime soon I hope.


    (Small disclaimer: I own the disk to Mario kart Wii, this isnt a discussion on where to get roms ;) )

    +1 on wow! It almost seems like the game was designed with VR in mind. I do not know where my MP3 disc anymore is but I will dig it up somehow. I have to try this out!

    well if you think about how it worked on the wii it basically is a vr game but on a tv instead of an hmd and the wii controller was like a vr controller. so any fps on wii should translate pretty damn good due to the motion controller
