The Best Wii Games


If you're looking purely at sales numbers for the last generation of consoles, Nintendo's Wii was far and away at the top of the pile, selling more units than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Despite this, there are plenty of people who think that there were no "good" games released for Nintendo's groundbreaking console. We're here to bust that myth with our list of the must-have games for the Wii. Do you agree with our choices? Sound off in the comments below.

Call of Duty Black Ops

"Call of Duty: Black Ops on the Wii is almost every bit as excellent as its HD console counterparts. New modes and mechanics give a jolt of energy to the lively competitive multiplayer; the engrossing new campaign is one of the best in the series; Combat Training mode allows anyone to enjoy the thrills of arena combat; and Zombies mode provides a goofy, gory diversion." -- Read our review

Donkey Kong Country Returns

"Donkey Kong Country Returns doesn't hide behind any gimmicks. This is a traditional take on 2D platformers, and it excels because the brilliant level design makes old obstacles seem new again. Every level hides a new surprise, and you'll replay them over and over again not only to nab every hidden collectible, but also because they're exquisitely entertaining." -- Read our review

Rock Band 3

"Rock Band 3 not only introduces new and exciting things to the world of rhythm games, but it does almost everything better than those that have come before it. When it comes to accessible, inventive, and immensely entertaining music video games, nobody does it better than Rock Band 3." -- Read our review

Kirby's Epic Yarn

"Kirby's Epic Yarn makes it clear from the get-go that it is an adorable game that will put a smile on your face through its outstanding visual design, but the delights go much deeper than the delectable aesthetics. Clever levels with varied objectives make it a blast to play, and though the main story is way too easy, there are at least challenging minigames to unlock for those who want to test their reflexes." -- Read our review

Mario Kart Wii

"The all-new stunt system, simplified drifting mechanics, natural motion controls, and expansive online integration all come together in a single package that, despite a few hiccups, is one of the best and most accessible experiences available on the Nintendo Wii." -- Read our review

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

"If you expected Metroid Prime 3: Corruption to be a high-quality continuation of the series, you'd be right. And yes, the Wii controls are terrific and intuitive, so if you hoped that controlling bounty hunter Samus Aran would be a dream, that wish has been granted, too." -- Read our review

Monster Hunter Tri

"This action/role-playing series finally reaches its potential with Tri, which renders its wild paradise in beautiful detail and lets you team up with friends or strangers online to tame it. A few of the game's facets are stubbornly mired in the past, such as a couple of awkward control issues and some online oddities. But this is, finally, what Monster Hunter had the potential to be all along: intense, involving, and most importantly, great fun." -- Read our review

New Super Mario Bros Wii

"New Super Mario Bros. Wii has more than nostalgia to back it up. While it doesn't stray too far from what's come before it, New Super Mario Bros. Wii's tight gameplay, multitude of secrets, accessibility for newcomers thanks to the nifty Super Guide, and some fun multiplayer additions all add up to a great platformer that Mario fans and nonfans alike should enjoy." -- Read our review

No More Heroes

"The fantastic combat is more than enough reason to revisit No More Heroes. This time, SUDA-51 has delivered a game that can match its absurd premise with equally stimulating gameplay, making for one of the most unique and satisfying action games in recent memory." -- Read our review

"There's much more to this game than you've probably come to expect from the typical action adventure experience, and the game is so well crafted from top to bottom that it's bound to impress just about anyone who gives it a chance." -- Read our review


"Although the Wii version of Punch-Out plays almost identically to the NES original, the formula is still as intense, addictive, and fun as it ever was. The roster is mostly composed of fighters from the earlier games, but they are as exhilarating to fight now as they were the first time and come with a number of new moves and techniques that will flummox even the more hardened Punch-Out veterans." -- Read our review

Resident Evil 4

"The best games are worth playing through all over again. Not only does RE4 itself remain a heart-pounding thrill ride and a modern classic, but the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls breathe new life into a game that is still a treat to play." -- Read our review

Dead Space: Extraction

"Dead Space Extraction has been built from the ground up to offer a more strategic, story-oriented experience that acts as a second meaningful entry in the Dead Space universe. Extraction pulls no punches and delivers an uncompromised horror experience, complete with the series' famous strategic dismemberment, spooky atmosphere, and intense action." -- Read our review

Super Mario Galaxy 2

"It's the expertly designed levels that will keep you coming back, even after you've seen everything this game has to offer, just to experience it one more time. This is an instant classic that belongs alongside the best games Nintendo has ever created." -- Read our review

Super Paper Mario

"Super Paper Mario stands as an engaging and fun Wii game that's well worth your time. Super Paper Mario's humorous story, accessible gameplay, inventive design, cool visual style, and impressive amount of content give it an undeniable charm. Anyone with a Wii should check it out." -- Read our review

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

"Whether you're a diehard Smash Bros. fanatic or a neophyte brawler, you'll be pleased to know that Super Smash Bros. Brawl includes a plethora of impressive characters, features, and game modes, and is more accessible and fun than ever before." -- Read our review

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is one of the best games ever. Ever.

Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All Stars

"While fighting veterans will revel in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom's deeply satisfying combat, the game is without a doubt one of the easiest in the genre to jump into, thanks to control schemes that cater to everyone from brawling neophytes to air combo aficionados." -- Read our review

The Last Story

"It's a familiar tale, but The Last Story is far from a familiar game. It's a deep, fast-paced JRPG, that evolves the genre in ways that enhance its existing tropes, without stripping away at its soul." -- Read our review

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

"Twilight Princess is a great game that stays extremely true to the Zelda franchise's past. That's excellent news for fans of the series, who'll find in Twilight Princess a true-blue Zelda game with updated visuals, some new twists, plenty of challenging puzzles, and a faithful dedication to the series' roots." -- Read our review

WarioWare: Smooth Moves

"This game is totally built around the Wii Remote and maintains, if not surpasses, the level of absolute random insanity that has made the whole series so appealing. It's a terrific use of the Wii's unique control features, it looks amazing, and in short, it should be a part of your library." -- Read our review

Wii Fit

"Wii Fit takes the whole concept of games as exercise to a new level with the inclusion of a balance board peripheral that can tell you on the fly exactly how well--or how poorly--you're doing with its various activities. As such, Nintendo is heavily marketing this innovative title as a mixture of fitness and fun, and for the most part it works." -- Read our review

Wii Sports Resort

"holiday. Wii Sports Resort shines as a fun, accessible, and varied multiplayer experience, and while not all of its minigames are top-notch, there's plenty here to make this a great party game for any Wii owner." -- Read our review

Xenoblade in action.

Xenoblade Chronicles

"It has everything that seasoned JRPG veterans are looking for, but it also manages to lift the barrier for entry for those new to the genre. It retains the traditions it wants to and modernises the aspects it needs to. It's not only one of the best JRPGs in years; it's also one of the best RPGs regardless of subgenre. Xenoblade Chronicles is a captivating, magical game which deserves to be hailed as the revolution it is." -- Read our review

Zack and Wiki Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

"It might not win you over with its characters or story, but it will with its wonderfully crafted puzzles and sharp control mechanics. It's just the sort of game Wii owners have been pining for, the sort of game that blends accessibility and challenge into one seamless whole, and does it without devolving into yet another minigame collection." -- Read our review

House of the Dead: Overkill

"Overkill reinvents the aging shooter series for the better with an over-the-top grindhouse theme that resonates in its every aspect, from the hilarious story to the fantastic vintage soundtrack." -- Read our review

    I'm surprised that this time you actually accept the existence of JRPGs


    IMO I would of liked it if they added:

    Wii Party


    Tomena Sanner


    Pretty good list, although I'm saddened at the absence of Skyward Sword.


    I'd replace Black Ops with the Goldeneye remake (as a fan of the N64 original, I still think this game is awesome).


    they forgot to add Red steel 2 and conduit on the list above


    Solid list, but I would add No More Heroes 2; Muramasa: The Demon Blade; Little King's Story; Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn; Bully and MadWorld. Wii was a very solid console. Heck, it got me back into console gaming. If wasn't for it, today I would probably only game on my PC.


    I would add in The Little King's Story, Skyward Sword, Sonic Colors, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Sin & Punishment Star Successor and Boom Blox. The Little King's Story was easily one of my favorite games on the Wii, blending strategy, simulation, with RPG elements all in a very charming story.


    Where's Fire Emblem?


    It is not that the Nintendo Wii has no good games. It is just 50-80 great games out of a total Wii library of 2100 games which is pathetic. By far most were shovelware. Aimed at casual gamers most of which just bought a Wii and maybe 3-5 other games during the 2006-2012 lifespan of the Wii. It was mostly a Wii sports player for most of these non-gamers.

    100.9 million sold it is Nintendo's only home console to ever sell past 100 million units. NES,SNES,Nintendo 64, Nintendo Gamecube, And The Wii U have not done this feat.

    In all the Wii did win the console sales race of the 7th generation. 80 million each for the much better Xbox one and PS3.

    The Wii has very few great games despite having the largest Nintendo library. Only the DS has a bigger game library. Selling 153.9 million and lasting 10 yrs. Today the DS is just barely active but 2004-2014 is a great run.

    The Wii did better than I expected. It is worth playing those 50 to 80 great games for this system.


    << LINK REMOVED >>

    Um so? Who here gives a damn about the percentage of great games? The amount is more important and for being by far the cheapest home console on the market, 50-80 great games is MORE than enough. It has the largest library because it was the most popular and easiest console to develop for. In the 6th gen, the PS2 had the lowest percentage of great games while the GameCube (or Dreamcast) had the highest percentage, same with the N64 vs the PSone, yet no one cared since both had strong libraries.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I think it's fair to point out that the Wii had loads of shovelware, it was kinda similar to how mobile is now. It was the super casual console that sold to lots of people and so a bunch of totally unheard of terrible quick cash-in games were made for it. These games were made specifically because the Wii install base had enough of the type of people that would actually buy some of those games. Sure it probably was easier to develop for, but more importantly it was easier to sell garbage to its owners.

    I remember bringing a bunch of Wii games given to me to trade at EB. Several of them were kids games that EB did not even have in their system, just trash found in bargain bins and such.


    << LINK REMOVED >>

    The same could be said about the Playstation and PS2. I actually find it rather interesting that this whole "shovelware" criticism became popular when Nintendo's console became the best selling console once again when it's always been true of the best selling console that would get a crap ton of shovelware. I remember most families I knew with PS2's and even PS1's usually had several crap games that looked like cheap knockoffs of amazing titles, same way shovelware on the Wii played to the interests of the consumers who bought into the Wii's motion controls.


    << LINK REMOVED >>

    82.9 Million for 360

    80 Million for PS3


    Did you seriously put a Call of Duty game on this list?


    Is this a joke? Dead Space Extraction was pure garbage. So were several others on this list


    << LINK REMOVED >>
    Such as? When you start being vague like that, it just tells us that you have no basis to what you're saying. Aside from Dead Space, the only other game I would remove is Black Ops.


    << LINK REMOVED >> The problem is, is that there isn't anything better to put on the list. Most of the Wii game library is garbage.



    Except there is. It's just the great games get overlooked because people only look at the shovelware titles, and judge it off that.



    Madworld, Xenoblade, Kirby: EY, Kirby Return to Dreamland, No More Heroes 1 and 2, Arc Rise Fantasia, Little Kings Story, Fragile Dreams, Pandoras Tower, Mario Kart, Smash Bros Brawl, Punchout, Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Red Steel 2, Sin and Punishment, Metroid Trilogy, Last Story, New Super Mario Bros, DKCR, Zack and Wiki, A boy and HIs blob, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, Klonoa, Sonic Colors, etc.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> so what are they?


    Sin and Punishment?


    I know it did not sell very well but I would add MadWorld. Very fun and unique looking game.


    << LINK REMOVED >> I agree


    << LINK REMOVED >> Very underrated treasure of a game.. It deserved way better than what it was delt. It should have made the list


    Nat Geo voice: and here, in this wild micro atmosphere of the gamespot plains, you will be able to see the remains of the almost extinct species of the video game universe, also known as nintendo fanboys.

    Immature creatures that play kids games and support shitty, underpowered and overrated consoles.


    @eze_sl89 Wow you must really be pissed that it outsold your console of choice. Don't worry the butthurt will eventually go away..It just takes time and alot of'll be ok.
    ....on a reality complain that it's a shitty, underpowered and overrated system but tell me you wouldn't want 1% of what that shitty , underpowered and overrated console made for money.


    well i think reason why Will sold because party games and old classic games since first time they had store.


    RE 4 should be replace by RE 1 remake.


    I'm surprised Little King Story isn't on this list. It's basically an underrated Pikmin. Both of which are fun games.

    Rune Factory is also another good game. Though it's a farming sim/dungeon crawler, so I don't think it's too popular.


    I have over 40 games for Wii - 18 of which are on this list. Wii has some great games. You just need to know where to look in the mountain of shovelware.


    Call of Duty, Rock Band, and HotD... Really? You had that much trouble making a list of decent Wii games?


    Skyward Sword was amazing. Where's that mention? House of the Dead was garbage. On any other system it would be laughed at.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Skyward Sword was definitely not amazing.


    << LINK REMOVED >> They only chose 1 game from any given series. So only one Zelda and Mario galaxy game.


    Some great choices there - Zack and Wiki was particularly sadly overlooked. A couple of others my family had a lot of fun with were Mario Strikers Charged and the Boom Blox series.


    Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles... really these two should be in their own list.

    Edit: Also this list is super incomplete, even taking into account no games from the same series Little King Story and Red Steel 2 jumps to mind. It's also pretty messed up that it's not Skyward Sword and NMH: Desperate Struggle representing their series.

    But yeah completely worthy article, busting the no good games on Wii myth.


    Activision and EA multiplats? What happened GameSpot? Afraid your sponsors would frown upon your article if you didn't include them?


    I kind of disagree with Wii's success story. While yes, Wii sold more consoles than PS3 and X360 (maybe combined? I don't know just a guess), but ultimately it led Nintendo to bad decisions and they lost both core gamers and casual gamers.

    Imagine if Wii didn't do so well and Nintendo wouldn't come to conclusion that it doesn't matter if consoles HW is outdated as long as you provide exclusive games for a wierd controller -- WiiU most likely would be competing with PS4/BONE


    << LINK REMOVED >> You don't need to have the best tech to have the best gameplay. XB360 / PS3 suffer from middle kid syndrome, they're not as powerful as a PC and they weren't as playful as the little brother (Wii). They were generic junk for the masses to play CoD on. Sad part is so is the PS4 / XBONE...well at least XBONE gets titanfall but once again not as powerful as the PC version..sorry middle kid you lose.


    << LINK REMOVED >> not everyone cares about graphics ... Wii has proven that.



    No Skyward Sword but Twilight Princess means this list is joke imo.


    @amaneuvering Twilight was much better than skyward !!! what are you talking about !!!!! For Me Skyward was the worst zelda ever released .. ( I don't mean its bad ) its just the least fun one ..


    << LINK REMOVED >> "Link: The Faces of Evil" was the worst Zelda ever released.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> That game is not even called The Legend of Zelda ..


    << LINK REMOVED >> Wow, didn't know people like you existed.


    Funny how the most successful console was the first one to die.


    << LINK REMOVED >> People actually need good games to keep playing it. People just wised up to the fraud that was the Wii



    After 4 years? You must think the general populous is extremely stupid then if it took them 4 years to "wise up to the fraud that was the Wii."


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>true that!


    << LINK REMOVED >>

    Then I can (in all fairness) say that the "stupid general populous" just gave into the media hype surrounding Sony/Microsoft, since they clearly can't seem to think for themselves. I mean look how popular Apple's become despite being more expensive and sporting less power and freedom with hardware than their competitions, but only because the media makes Apple seem like the best thing ever.


    << LINK REMOVED >> I do



    That's definitely partly because unlike the other console manufactures, especially Sony; Nintendo hasn't been very good at all at supporting it's consoles after it moves onto the next generation unfortunately.


    Where are the other lists?


    Take Out- WarioWare Smooth Moves + Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

    Replace with- Wario Land: Shake it. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

    Add: Endless Ocean: Blue World. A boy and his blob. Bit.trip Runner. Tales of Monkey Island. GoldenEye 007.


    I want to play Xenoblade Chronicles soooo badly.

    I have to find a copy.........


    << LINK REMOVED >> keep checking Gamestop's used section. I know it's crazy, but I was in a local store maybe a week ago and saw two copies. Granted, they still sell for $60, but it's completely worth it, a great game! Best of luck!


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I know! I seen Xenoblade chronicles there USED for 60 daing bucks!!! like NEW WII games cost 50 clams!! they shouldn't be able to do that...I don't like that shiz pissed me off I only had 50 on me so I got RE4 Wii edition and Monster Hunter Tri instead for about 30 I think for both of dem


    << LINK REMOVED >> NoA mishandle this monopoly to 1 store is never a good idea...hope you can find one decently price.


    Good luck finding a legit copy that's not ten times the rrp, I caved and went to the home brew.


    There's also Konami's Rebirth games that's exclusive to the Wii Shop. I have Contra Rebirth. Castlevania Rebrth looks great.


    what about Super Mario Galaxy? I think its one of the best Marios ever made, can't say that about the second which i always found boring and not very galaxy like, first looked much better had more details, better levels and a much better overworld - it was as good as Mario 64, SMG2 is more like the first of the Mario 3D Land/world games and 3D World was ... not the laft of what expected from the game, but nintendo said ist just a money maker and system seller and say want to do a real 3D Mario, i hope that will be true and and taht it will be the next step in the line of Super Mario World, Mario 64 and Mario galaxy.

    the Metroid Prime Trilogy is the best the Wii can offer, first and second may be related to the gamecube, but they are not half as good as they are on the Wii, the trilogy boxset was a very special offer for a very good price, its pirce is now at 4th or 5th of what it coast when i bought it.

    Call of Duty as the first game on this list? or even on this list? you dont need a wii for that and every other version is more of what it meant to play this game.

    Black Ops may be the best Cod Game so far (i think its better then MW2, while both are far away from a good game), but it really shouldn't be on the list - every single exclusive on the list is much better.

    good list but you forgot the best the wii can offer, so maybe its not that good ... ;-)


    The Wii is dead and buried. And I'm glad they left out Skyward Sword, overrated pile of trash.


    << LINK REMOVED >>

    Overrated? It may have been overrated by reviewers, but many people claim that game to be the worst 3D Zelda


    << LINK REMOVED >> Somebody doesn't like sex.



    lol wut?


    << LINK REMOVED >> oooh and it sounds like you're the one with dirt on your hands...your comment is indeed overrated heeheehahaha


    Better value for more entertainment than ps3 and 360 combined.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Pick any genre, except platformer(Nintendo owns this) and Xbox and PS3 bury the Wii as far as games go.


    << LINK REMOVED >> umm... No. I can ramble off 400 good games for the PS3 and 360, can't even pick 20 I like on the wii, and most of my list includes Mario. Where is the more entertainment?


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> no you couldn't dood you are full of snot!


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I betcha most of those 400 games involve gritty shooters with a color palette of varying shades of grey and brown.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Most of those i play on my PC. Why would you play a game like witcher on a console anyways? You pay the same amount of money for an inferior version of the game.


    @CptMorgan21 @DoomglooM@randomkidlol blah blah blah is that all ya got? All you Nintendo *hating people sound like preprogrammed robots...durr mario durrr uhhh kiddieeee uhh durrrr lol I'd have Mario jump on yo head...and you couldn't name 100 good games for BOTH systems ya liar!


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Wow, you are pretty ignorant dude. Maybe you would like them more if Mario was in the title. Enjoy your 10 good games!


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> DIABLO 3 SUCKS! and so does FALLOUT and KINDA DEAD RISING and ARKHAM SERIES...SAINTS ROW 1 was good the rest SUCKED!!! 2 was ok but it SUCKED! and CaptMorgan SUCKS TOO you NEWBIE CRONIE!! lol


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> There are a lot of great shooters, but.....Skyrim, Mirrors edge, Darksiders, Castlevania LOS, Fallout, Fable, Dead Space, Red Dead Redemption, Dishonored, XCOM, GTA, Saints Row, Dark Souls, Portal, Final Fantasy, Diablo 3, Devil May Cry, Splinter Cell, Metal Gear Solid, Dead Rising, Alan Wake, Mass Effect, Arkham Series, Dragon Age, The Witcher, 15+ good fighting games, 15+ good racers, just to name a few. Could go on for hours


    << LINK REMOVED >> By far.


    But see, when you look at this list, you end up realizing that people have really jumped the gun on writing off the Wii U. A lot of these titles weren't early in the Wii's release, and the Wii U hasn't released a lot of the "next of kin" to what's on this list. Okay, there's a New Super Mario Bros U already, but Mario Kart 8 and the next Smash are still in the works, and there's plenty of time in the future for Galaxy 3, Rock Band 4, and sequels to other listed games.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Mk8 is on its way as i would say - one mounth isnt far away.

    the X trailers already look great and extacly what i wanted after playing xenoblade, i am sure that twill be THE JRPG of this gen.there a lot sequels to other games in the list as well and still some in works.


    << LINK REMOVED >> It's the same with All consoles...things take time....I know the PS4 and Xbone have so many groundbreaking must own titles out already! what's wrong Nintendo!!! pffft lol


    Thanks Nintendo! Thank you for making overpriced underpowered consoles to play childish games on. Thanks for catering to my Peter Pan syndrome. The world is a lie


    << LINK REMOVED >>

    Says a great deal about your level of maturity and mentality when you call the games listed on here as "childish" considering not a single title on this list (or among the overall best Wii games) can be considered "childish" well, except maybe House of the Dead Overkill with it blatant violence and lewdness.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Says troll.


    So your a wii fanboy today? Can't wait for tommorrow


    << LINK REMOVED >> it sucks but you can't have it all!


    << LINK REMOVED >> don't have it but we could pretend I do have an imagination ;)


    I'm lonely play Mario cart with me


    << LINK REMOVED >> I can...but only all at once!


    With as many HD remakes that the next gen consoles are getting I'm surprised that Nintendo wouldn't do the same for the Wii U just for the sake of giving us people some friggin games to play. HD Super Mario Galaxy 2 would be nice or an HD beef-up of the Metroid Prime trilogy. Are you listening Nintendo? No? Figures.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Wii U is backwards compatible to the Wii. Not paying attention to that? Figures.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>Who said anything about the Wii U not being able to play Wii games? Of course, the Wii U can play Wii games with the old controllers and at 480p. Some games benefit from the 480p bump but a lot of games look like they went through a meat grinder ("Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition" looks absolutely terrible). I say bump some of those Wii games up to 1080p, give them higher resolution textures, anti-aliasing, real-time shadows, and Wii U pad support. They did it with Wind Waker and it sold some hardware.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> You did, troll. It's clear that you have no intention of buying those HD remakes, you just want to make NIntendo look bad, troll.


    That's what I'm talking about!


    Ok I get it now. If I act like a blind fanboy then I'm cool, right?


    << LINK REMOVED >>

    No, but actually using that brain on your head will prevent you from looking like an idiot.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Right... and if your Grandmother had wheels she'd be a tractor.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> No..she'd be in a wheelchair


    Ok, who's up for some Mario cart!


    kinda regret not jumping on the Wii bandwagon. Nice little collection of games with variety in that list


    << LINK REMOVED >> You can buy a Wii really cheap today. And it´s still easy to find most games.

    The Wii will clearly lack in terms of graphs, but it offers an absurd quantity of brilliant exclusives.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> graphics don't bother me when it comes to Nintendo games. As you said they have an "absurd quality of brilliant exclusives" and i quite agree! i will purchase a Wii U later in the year and it'll give me an opportunity to play the games that i missed out on.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Its not too late. Wii U is backwards compatible so you can play the entire library of Wii games.


    @bunchanumbers @robbiejones Now that I've been getting into Wii Fit lately I'm thinking of getting a Wii U to play it and the Wii U Smash Bros. & Mario Kart. I gotta get a Oculus Rift first, but I just might get one as I already have a Wii and most of the games on this list. I do want to get Monster Hunters though. I forgot about that game.


    @bunchanumbers @robbiejones yes i am considering in a Wii u purchase. i missed out on gamecube aswell *sigh* but windwaker hd looks great! last nintendo console i purchased was nintendo 64. been mainly playing on their handhelds mainly..


    The Wii is a great system. It's just too bad it's reputation got ruined with all the mini game and family friendly crap. Some of my most fun gaming over the past few years has been on my Wii.


    << LINK REMOVED >> The bad reputation came mostly from the immaturity of gamers, in general... so fuck that detail.

    I agree with you, the Wii had some of the most enjoyable games I´ve played. But the mini/family games were also one of it´s strong aspects. I had great nights with friends playing Wii Sports.


    << LINK REMOVED >> I agree with SSBB alone lol


    Oh no you didnt


    << LINK REMOVED >> Having fun being an idiot there troll?


    Not really, I didn't start it


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> what is light without darkness! lol


    My personal favorite was MadWorld


    Good list, but there are some glaring omissions. Rayman Origins, Rhythm Heaven Fever, Sin and Punishment 2, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and definitely The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which is my second favorite Wii game next to Super Mario Galaxy 2. But Gamespot simply doesn't like Skyward Sword as much, and that's fine.

    Also, though many disliked it, I personally vouch for Metroid: Other M. I liked that one better than Corruption. That's surprising considering that the first two Metroid Prime games are two of my all-time favorites. And there are plenty if other great games for the Wii. I don't care what anyone says, Wii was an exceptional console, one with some of my most fond gaming memories.


    Let's just have a top 1000 to please everyone


    Why stop at 1000? Make a "Top 1222 Wii Games." That'd cover all of 'em.


    That's good and deep


    Okami is so damn good.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Okami is a PS2 game. The Wii didn't even have enough buttons on its controller to handle the game so it got terrible motion controls.


    << LINK REMOVED >> you should change your name to friendless gamer I think lol


    << LINK REMOVED >> hmm seem's that way!


    Your my friend


    Even saying something positive about Nintendo gets misconstrued, cracks me up people


    << LINK REMOVED >> what poor gamespot right?


    well why isn't this updated with games that have been out for at least 2 years then??


    I actually like this list for the most part. The one thing I DON'T agree with is that that pile of rubbish that is Twilight Princess (in relation to the rest of the series...on it's own it is still a good game) is up there over Skyward Sword.


    << LINK REMOVED >> Skyward Sword is the rubbish though.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I'd like to know why you think so. Skyward Sword offered a very solid experience, with a very compelling story, with some of the best dungeon designs in the series and some of the best boss battles in the series. It was also one of the most artistically compelling games in the whole series too (though I'll admit...TP was artistically beautiful). My main two problems with TP were that it felt like an updated OoT (I don't want the same type of game...I want something new and fresh) and it was WAY too easy. That being said, if you read what I said I actually think both games are good...I merely thought SS was much better. Instead you seem to feel like it's necessary to call what somebody else likes 'rubbish'. I suppose that is the way of the internet. Best way to make a point is to throw insults or to demote other people who believe differently from you.


    << LINK REMOVED >> I think they should take Twilight Princess out of this list and put it into the Gamecube's, and put Skyward Sword in it's place


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I can agree with that.


    Super Mario Galaxy, Madworld, and Mario Kart Wii... well, that's all three Wii games. Hell of a collection.


    Good picks. + 1


    SMG 1 & 2, NSMB Wii, Resi 4, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, No More Heroes, Metroid Prime 3, Zelda Skyward Sword, Dead Space Extraction, Resi UC & DC, Muramasa & of course Xenoblade Chronicles are my picks. :P


    << LINK REMOVED >> And all of your picks are exceptional!


    too bad there is no mention of Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon.


    << LINK REMOVED >> There's a reason it isn't mentioned.


    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> well then, please enlighten me with all your infinite wisdom. you think it's bad right?


    Agree with all of them, but what about Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn?


    << LINK REMOVED >> It was pretty average compared to the other Fire Emblem games, I assume that's why they didn't include it.
