Let's discuss the list here. I can mostly agree with this list, more than the DS one they made a few days ago. I definitely think at least one of the two Kirby games released should be on there, but that's just me. Super Mario Galaxy should be higher than Metroid Prime Trilogy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl in my opinion. I'm also one of those people who think the original Super Mario Galaxy is better than the 2nd, but I can understand the decision. What about Skyward Sword being #1? I think I can agree with it. Then there's also the argument on if it was better than Twilight Princess or not, which was placed somewhat low. Reading this makes me think my Wii library could use some better games, like Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Way better then their DS list.
Xenoblade should be higher though, and I'd put Galaxy 2 on top. It's a pretty good list though. There's nuiances I disagree with, but the list in general is pretty good.
The only game change I would do is switch Wii Sports Resort with Zack and Wiki.

I really wish they wouldn't include collections (though Mini-game collections are alright). I really would've liked to see where Metroid Prime 3 alone stood on thier list. Oh well.

And yeah, I don't agree with any of these, but what else is new?

I would put SSBB at the top and Xenoblade chronicles should be much higher. I also think MKW and Punch-out wii should be higher. Its sad not to see the excellent yet underrated Wario land: The shake dimension, Little King's story (best third-party game on the Wii) and Zack and Wiki on there. Also, I may not be that far in it but I'm really enjoying Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the new world and I'd be surprised if by the time I beat it, it didn't seem worthy of being on this list to me.

I try not to get upset over lists like this because it's obviously not going to fully satisfy anyone. I doubt anybody at IGN is fully satisfied by it either. They all have their own personal opinions. I guess we're all going to spend the next few pages nitpicking a list that even the staff knew would piss people off, though.

I had fun once and it was awful.

I can definitely agree with most of the games on this list, although I'd do a lot of rearranging.
Xenoblade Chronicles is far too low... it should be somewhere between 1-3, or top five at the very least.
There's a few there that I don't like very much, but not many.
And only one game on the list that I don't own.

Next is the 3DS list, yes?... Kid Icarus: Uprising better be #1 or it's completely wrong.

@FonistofCruxis
If I remember, Little King's Story, Zack and Wiki, and I think Wario Land were all on their list maybe last year or something.

@Mickeymac
I think they had Metroid Prime 3 on the list by itself before the trilogy was released. Although it wasn't as high as it is now. I'm sure its because many regard the first Metroid Prime as the best of the three, which surely helps contribute to its high spot.

Muramasa being on that list really surprised me. I'm also delightfully surprised Tatsunoko VS Capcom got 9th

I'm just amazed that I've actually played 18 of them (if you count the free demo of Monster Hunter I got at Gamestop and The Last Story which I will play if it ever actually comes out in NA). That's much better than the 7 from the DS list.

@BenAV The Wii and DS are pretty much at the end of their lives, and the 3DS has only been out for little over a year. Give it a few more years ;)

That's not stopping IGN from doing a top 25 3DS games list next week.

It's a good looking list, after you get rid of Desperate Struggle, Super Paper Mario, Okami, and Red Steel 2 anyway. I'd question Star Successor's presence on this list as well (terrible multi-player). Maybe IGN should have made a top 20 instead.

Monster Hunter Tri not in the top 5 is a crime.

I'm pretty surprised that The Last Story is higher than Xenoblade,but both should be in the top 5.
And where the heck is Rayman Origins?

I would have put NSMBW lower, but other than that I'm fine with the list. Of course this is someone's opinion so yeah you don't have to fully agree with it.
