New Super Mario Bros. Wii is higher than Xenoblade...

...leaves room

sounds of random violence and screaming and swearing is heard from afar

God, gaming journalism is so hacktastic

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Everything else should be lower or not even on the list.

Actually, now that I think about it, there are only 3 not listed that I'd want on there, and two of them I haven't played yet. That's a record, I guess, but it probably just means I couldn't even come up with 25 good Wii games...so for real, props to them for doing the impossible.

There's no doubt all of these are good, if not great Wii games, its just a matter of the order they're in. When it comes down to it though, IGN doesn't proclaim the absolute truth, no gaming site can, its just their opinion.

It always makes for interesting conversation though.

I'm still not quite sure whether I feel like collections and enhanced ports belong on these sorts of lists. I mean, as great as they are on the Wii and as well as their conversions went, I'm just never going to truly think of Okami, RE4 or the first two Metroid Prime games as Wii games - and it seems a tad bit odd to include them when compared to their DS list, where they clearly went out of their way to not include any remakes or ports. Granted, the DS had a much deeper library to work with than its home console cousin did, so the more cynical among us can view them almost as filler, in a sense.

Anyway, getting to my own silly and pointless gripes with the list itself, sometimes I think IGN likes to actively pretend Little King's Story didn't happen just to troll me or something... then I remember that hardly anyone knew that game even existed at the time, because anything decent that wasn't made by Nintendo, a party/dance/fitness game or some Capcom "test" almost always fell by the wayside on the Wii. That Rayman Origins is missing, though, is arguably more egregious, since most dedicated gamers have at least heard of that one (well, that, and it's simply a flipping amazing platformer to boot). And it would've been neat to see Trauma Team in there somewhere, but I never would have expected it to have anything more than a remote chance anyway.

I think it's mostly because they didn't like it as much as the 25 games on the list. Personally, I didn't find Little King's Story to be all that great. And it's not like they're ignoring niche titles. There's No More Heroes 2 and Muramasa: The Demon Blade, that latter of which didn't do all that amazing, and came out the same year as LKS.

Out of all the titles I actually appreciated Sin and Punishment and Thanked Nintendo for publishing this title here in the west.... I'm pretty much satisfied with the list I actually got both titles of No more heroes and finished the first one but have yet to finish the second... guess I got tired of the concept..... good game though...

I will most likely get punch out later on in the year... Can't wait to play last story as well.......

LOL @ The Last Story. One of the worst Wii games is on the "best of" list? hah.

Lacking Chocobo Dungeon, Samurai Warriors 3, Little King's Story, Pandora's Tower, Rune Factory, Fatal Frame/ Project Zero, Fortune Street and Fragile Dreams.

So, terrible list.

The Wii has some of the most shovelware on any system. I wouldn't put The Last Story in the same league as the likes of Ninjabread Man. Still, it's pretty weird that it's above Xenoblade when the general consensus says Xenoblade is the much better game.
Also, you're the only person who holds Chocobo Dungeon in that high of a regard.

I wouldn't put The Last Story in the same league as the likes of Ninjabread Man.

If Ninjabread Man was made by a team of developers 5-6 times as large (ie the size of Mistwalker), it would have been just as bad.

So really, The Last Story is just a big-budget version of Ninjabread Man.

Chocobo Dungeon has a Metacritic of 76. By the law of averages I am most definitely not the only person to realise that it is an awesome game. Niche, but awesome.

76 is far from awesome. Good yes, but far from awesome. Persona 4 is a pretty niche game in the same genre, yet it has a 90 average, and it came out in the same year to boot, so you can't throw a "nobody appreciates the genre" spiel.
If we're going to do averages, just keep in mind that most people seem to enjoy The Last Story, since it has an average rating of 80. Is it something everyone likes? Clearly not, but that's a higher rating than Chocobo Dungeon.

And by the same law of averages I'm not the only person that thought it was a 2.5/5 game.

My reasons for thinking IGN's list remain. Last Story shouldn't be on there, Chocobo Dungeon should.

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.

So true! Kid Icarus Uprising is the best game on the 3ds IMO, and the game I have played the most on it by far!

Currently playing: Rhythm Heaven, Minecraft (XBLA), Pokemon B/W 2, Halo 4, The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave, Fallblox, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GCN)

Will be playing soon: Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Cave Story +, Wii U: NSMBU, Nintendo Land, (And lots more!)

God forbid IGN's opinion is different than yours.

Personally, I'd consider Metroid Prime Trilogy valid due to the fact that it has Metroid Prime 3 in it. And Metroid Prime 3 is new game. (Obviously.)

Otherwise, collections like the upcoming Kirby 20th anniversary, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus , God of War, and Sly Cooper would never be on my top 20 list because I probably have the individual games ranked fairly high on their original console.

Just for you.

I played only 7 games of this list, Twilight Princes should be higher and SSBB should be lower.
