i don't even own 10 games for the wii, but i'm glad the Wii U will support them because there's still some games I want to get, Trauma Center looks fun.

I was hoping for larger VC support of the wii so I can just have them all on a hard drive instead. I hate switching games out (i'm lazy)

#3 Posted by Lost-to-Apathy (459 posts) -

1. Twilight Princess
2. Resident Evil 4
3. Super Mario Galaxy
4. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
5. Skyward Sword

The rest of the 10 (excuse me, I actually only have 9 Wii games)... well, they are in my collection, and I like them in no particular order. Super Mario Galaxy 2 felt redundant. Super Paper Mario... meh. Mario Kart is fun, but meh, didn't really need to buy it. And The Last Story, well I haven't really played it much, so no opinion.

And my top anticipated for Wii U, I have not a single clue what they'll be like, but I strongly suspect they'll come out.

1. Zelda
2. Mario 3D Platformer
3. Mario RPG
4. Super Smash Bros.

Currently, I have no interest in anything else.

Favourite Wii games would be the Wii Sports, Mario, and Zelda series, along with Donky Kong Country Returns, Metroid Prime 3, Little King's Story and Muramasa. Looking forward to ZombiU, WiiU Zelda, any WiiU strategy games (a Civ or SimCity title would make me die)

Top 10 Wii games? That's hard! It was such a mediocre console!

Games I thought were pretty good:

Mario Kart Wii

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (which is a GCN game to me)

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Games I'm looking forward to on the Wii U?

Super Smash Bros. 4

There's nothing else announced.

The more I watch of ZombiU and hear about it, the more I like it. Same goes for the WiiU tablet. then I think that there are probably 6 games in the launch window I would buy and enjoy. Then I it is tempting to get a WiiU at launch :P. But I think I should wait and see a Metroid, Zelda, or new IP first. if that wows me, then I am in.

10. Red Steel 2- The controls work surprisingly well, the graphics are fantastic, and the gameplay is, overall, ridiculously fun. If some of the design decisions had been better, I would probably rate this higher.

9. RE: Darkside Chronicles- An improvement over the first Chronicles game, thanks to little streamlining touches they did. Also, it has some of the best production values ever seen on the Wii.

8. No More Heroes 2: Desperate struggle. A good continuation of Travis Touchdown's story and some great new additions and changes. However its story lacks the mind blowing meaning that the first had and some of the boss fights aren't as good as the first and the assassins aren't well developed.

7. New Super Mario Brothers Wii- Lots of great levels, plenty of coins to collect, and the unlockable ninth world gives the determined players a biting challenge.

6. No More Heroes- Weird as hell, bloody, vulgar, hilarious and mind blowing are the reasons NMH is my number 8 choice. Plus the combat is simple fun.

5. Super Smash Brothers Brawl- A game I love to hate (thanks to playing with my friends). I've put too many hours onto this game. It is almost the ultimate party game to paly with friends, with more levels, more characters, more awesome music and more content than ever before.

4. Silent Hill Shattered Memories- A superb, unsettling atmospehre, fantastic production values, and an incredibly deep, emotional story that you can spend horus picking apart and figuring out. Not very scary, but one of the deepest games ever made.

3. Super Mario Galaxy 2- Even more creative, innovative and pure platforming fun than the original, thanks to improved design chocies (like making the Purple Coin challenges almost non existent), more level variety and other small improvements. It will be remembered as a platforming milestone, and with good reason.

2. Okami- Despite being a port, Okami is an incredibley fun, beautiful, charming, and emotional game. The gorgeous graphcis are complimented nicely by the distinctly Japanese soundtrack. Thankfully, the game has the gameplay to back up the stellar presentation, with a Zelda inspired structure that places mroe emphasis on the world and exploration than dungeons. Top it off with a story filled with twists, drama, emotion and humor, and you have one of the greatest games ever made.

1. Xenoblade Chronicles- A JRPG that is streamlined to near perfection, but never feels like its holding your hand. A seamless transition to the addictive battle system, a massive world to explore filled with monsters and rewards, an incredibly varied soundtrack that covers everything from subtle emotion to complete and utter epicness, and a surprising, twist filled story that will keep you playing. Loaded with content, like optional quests, and a long main narrative (at least 70 hours for most RPG players) that never feels too drawn out or tedious. Xenoblade is a masterful game, the kind that comes around once or twice a generation, making it, arguably, the best console game of the current gen of gaming.
