I was on IGN the other day and I found yet another wii-bashing article!
It criticised that there was very few hardcore games released in 2008 on the wii, but I think this incorrect, there were loads of hardcore games released on the system in 08 in europe!

For example:
Boom Blox
Okami
De Blob
Disaster
No more heroes
Warioland shake it
Super smash bros brawl
Mario Kart Wii
And those are just the exclusives, If anything I thought there was too much games on the system last year, as I bought half of these games in the begining of 09. I think all the critics are just idiots, all you have to do is search past the amount of minigame compilations (which have been declining in production in case you have not noticed) and you will find some real clasics for the wii system!

I hardly see what Mario Kart has to do with anything, but even without it, it's a sizable list. I thought most of those games were garbage, but that's not really relevant to the argument. Even if Brawl were the only game, that would have been enough.

I felt 2008 was a bad year for Wii games. If 2007 was gaining momentum and 2009 is closer to hitting it's stride, then 2008 was sorta a sophomore slump. I do agree with the games on your list mini (except disaster as I haven't played it in the US nor was it released officially) but still '08 leaved a lot to be desired.

IGN doesn't even have a coherent concept behind this word "hardcore," even though they worship it with a sort of blind, fundamentalist reverence. I wouldn't take anything they say seriously.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

I didn't think 2008 was a very good year, but 2007 rocked!

'08 was "okay", I managed to buy a game a month (which is what I usually do) but there wasn't that much choice over all. We got some really nice and unique games, though. '09 is shaping up to be a lot better, especially 3rd party wise.

2007 was a monumental year for games on all systems.

Scared of the future, but bored with the past.

I think the main problem with '08 was the ending. It started off so well with No More Heroes...

'06 had Twilight Princess
'07 had Super Mario Galaxy
'08 had, erm, Animal Crossing? Wii Music? Ouch.

It had TWEWY on DS. I would rather have that game than all games released during 2007.

This is the Wii section...

DS had an amazing year. As every year, really.

The DS was not good until the launch of the Lite. It was pretty crap in the early years.

^it actually had some novel games...it was really the pioneer of the Iphone's whole style of gaming; the biggest issue was the 40 dollar price tag. Games like Yoshi's Touch & Go and Pac Pix were cool, they just didn't really warrant the full-game price, and it didn't drop to $35 on average until a little later in its lifespan. I honestly think, if Nintendo had been early on the digital distribution thing or had priced those games differently, public opinion would have been higher. Kirby's Canvas Curse was pretty awesome, as was Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow...but it did pick up substantially upon the release of the Lite.

Yoshi's Touch N Go was probably my most played DS game, topping even World Ends With You and Contact. The game really got short changed for awful reasons. "There're just two levels!" incompetent reviewers shouted. Of course there are, it's a score-based arcade game! I wonder if it's small enough for a DSiWare release.
