    If its not modded then you can only play Japanese games. There are a lot of Japanese games that are playable without English (you can figure them out), however, there are many more where English instructions is a must.

    I have the JAP version + wiikey and play many NTSC US games.
    Get your wii modded and then check the compatibility list to see which games work before buying them.

    Modding is risky. If you don't know what your doing you could **** your console. Have a look around the web there may be a local place that can do this for you if your not confident. Second to that ,once you mod it, you will still either have to buy import games (or where ever you live may be fine) or get the iso's so you can burn them yourself somehow. Then the problem you potentially face is that any firmware update you do "could" BRICK your console (i.e make it as useful as a brick!).
    If really un-sure sell it and buy one of your own region and play away in peace.

    Japan wii is more fun that i can play both/more english and japan version game. Make sure you modded it and take care of the firmware update and it will be very useful.

    I usually use a small kiosk shop in the Golden Computer Center, SSP, Hong Kong ;-)
