Unlike any other modern gaming console in the Nintendo Wii era, like PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 where most of the games were meant for single person (be it single player or multiplayers but through online), games built and made for Nintendo Wii were meant to be played together cooperatively or in modern term, it’s called couch co-op games. And as the results, both my wife and I had plenty of great times even until today.
