Topic: Top 10 Wii games

Posts 1 to 20 of 55


Perfect time for this topic to exist. Opinions of course. Wiiware counts if you want. Go!

1. Super Mario Galaxy - I love you Nintendo. When you want to make something amazing, you can do it like pratically no one else. This game made me feel like I was a little 7 year old playing the old Marios. Every level was incredibly fun and interesting, the Wii controls never took away from anything (even during some frustrating parts like with a sphere or a manta ray), it always felt creative and fresh and this really took Mario to a new level with all the crazy gravity gimmics. The use of gravity was perfect (best use of gravity in a game ever) and nearly every single star was a blast to get. Except like getting silver stars and stuff on that water slide level. No one liked that really. Also, I feel like an idiot for ever doubting putting orchestrated music in a Mario game. One of the best soundtracks to any game, easily.
2. Xenoblade Chronicles (seriously) - I stand by my statement that this is the new Chrono Trigger. 100 hours in, and not even beaten yet. It took the best of other games in the genre, did some new (...newer) things and even some WRPG elements and combined it to make the best RPG ever released on a Nintendo home console (I prefer Paper Mario, but this is unquestionably a better game). It's one of those games where even the flaws with the game usually don't bother me in the slightest even though they should. This is because I enjoy just going through this world. It is one of the best looking worlds in any game ever. And yeah, I get that it isn't HD visuals and it shows but for a Wii game, it's a miracle. And I love the look of the game more than anything in the genre that I can think of at least. Personal preference of course. The music is also amazing, top 5 for JRPGs. I love the combat, it's on TWEWY levels of never getting old without the risk of being too different and needlessly complicated that was TWEWY. All the side quests get addicting despite not exactly being on the level of Skyrim's sidequests more games should give you exp for reasons other than fighting monsters. The story starts out as just "good" but it's all buildup to an amazing 2nd half of the game. As a review pointed out, it has the annoying mascot character that somehow isn't annoying at all. It's a Wii game that has achievements. And they give you more exp. RIKI LIKES FIGHTING EASY MONSTERS. Buy this game.
3. Twilight Princess - I have reasons why I'm such a huge fan of this game. I think. I mean, I do think it is kinda like OOT, except with all the cooler more interesting stuff in later Zeldas, which itself is great. Short of a sidequest or 2 (and fishing), there's nothing annoying or bad in the game. But it's like my 1st or 2nd favorite Zelda game because Zelda is that great a series. I guess. Everything about the game just works imo. That's really all I can say.
4. World of Goo -Addicting. I've played through this game a few times and the levels of world 1 too many times to count. The gameplay is so addicting. Just try and fail to get a better score. And then build a tower of Goo, BECAUSE WHY NOT? The humor's genuinely funny, the look is cool, I honestly like the controls as much as with a mouse on the PC version, the music is the 2nd coming of Danny Elfman. I've probably played the game, both versions combined, 50+ hours. That's probably less than it deserves.
5. Muramasa: The Demon Blade* - The art style to this game is what attracted me to it. I saw some battles and boss battles and it was soooo cool. The game lives up to that. Another game where I hack and then slashed and it never got old for me. Maybe it did for others, but not for me honestly. It's hard for me to describe why I thought it was so great beyond the clever use of 3 weapons unlocked on average between boss battles. It was repeditive certainly, but I still loved it.
6. Super Mario Galaxy 2* -Not as much of a level design, gaming masterpiece filled with joy and everything good in this world like the first one, but still a great game. More awesome, creative and fun levels. And Yoshi.
7. Little King's Story* - The Vita getting the sequel is actually decent proof for Waltzelf's theory that Sony has games on their consoles that are like Nintendo games, except better. It's like Pikmin. But better. More strategy elements, more units, a ton of semi-insane semi-satire ideas thrown into the game and it all works. Some of the best boss battles in any game. New versions of classical music as your soundtrack. If there is any justice, in 10 years this will be looked at as a classic like Earthbound is now.
8. Donkey Kong Country Returns* - It's Donkey Kong Country, but with far more insane level design and some new ideas that fits with all the crazy stuff new consoles can do that SNES couldn't. No other explanation needed. That's the game. That's it.
9. No More Heroes 2 - Yeah the bosses in the first game were largely better. It's too bad literally everything else is better in this game. More awesome music (always a plus), less boring overworld, really fun NES styled games to get money (that's just for upgrades and is not required) unlike the intentionally bad chores from the first game. Also the most accurate modern day schmup ever.
10. Super Paper Mario - I did and still do love how creative this game is. At its core, it is an action RPG platformer (or I suppose a platformer with RPG elements) where you switch from 2d to 3d. I know it can get repeditive compared to the first 2 games and the soundtrack isn't quite on the level of the other Paper Marios but just for how it uses the gameplay I can forgive quite a bit. I honestly had a ton of fun with the game despite it's problems. More than every Wii game I played except 9 of them to be exact. The story was good like the last game and the writing can be flat-out hilarious. Some of the nerdy references and jokes are just perfect and almost never felt forced like they sometimes do in other games.

Eh, the fact that you didn't put Skyward Sword up there kind of irks me, of course this is your opinion, but Skyward Sword was the first Zelda game in which you actually truly felt like Link. It's also the first that has an obvious form of romance, which for me, makes it better then Twilight Princess.

10: Epic Mickey: Being a serious Disney fan there was almost no reason to hate epic Mickey. It was a love letter to all Disney lovers. I can only hope its sequel will be the same sort.
9 Sonic Colors: Sonic's best adventure, with the feeling we get from sonic, to the unique Gameplay and great presentation
8 Bit Trip Runner: Presentation alone is top notch, forget the addicting Gameplay.
7 New Super Mario Bros Wii: Classic Mario, there isn't so much of a reason to say it's not great
6: Metroid Other M: Great exploration, tons of action, great graphics, and could have been a perfect title... if they didn't screw up the story
5: Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword: Best Graphics ever, tons of new elements combined with great Zelda gameplay, and shows how motion can be superior.
4: Super Smash Bros Brawl:Plenty of reasons to play, most addictive fighter ever
3 Mario Kart Wii: Quality Kart Racing, tons of competition,
2 Super Mario Galaxy: Platforming refined in a sort of way completely superior and easy to play.
1 Donkey Kong Country Returns: I always say this. Donkey Kong Country Returns is not only the best Wii game ever, it is the best game ever. Great Platforming levels, difficult bosses, and knows how to get a gamer like myself playing 24/7 it is the 2D Platforming King.

Like Brawl, expectations hurt my opinion of Skyward Sword cause I was honestly expecting the best Zelda ever, easily. Also I hated the first trip to Faron and some other parts and I couldn't get too into the story until after dungeon 3 (unlike the other 3D Zeldas where I cared about the story pretty quickly). Your points about the game are completely and utterly true though and it's still awesome. And certainly more creative than Twilight Princess.

I do have to take back what I said about my favorite games from 2011 being Skyward Sword and Skyrim. Good job Radiant Historia, you are awesome.

There are 10 Wii games?

On iPad, so sorry, descriptions will be minimal. And in no real order:

1) Chocobo Mystery Dungeon - a nice mix of challenge and charm, Chocobo is an awesome character. Simply, grindy fun.
2) Samurai Warriors 3 - my first warriors game, as I was put off the series by the reviews previously. Needless to say, critics lost a lot of respect in my eyes for not getting this series
3) Pandora's Tower - it's actually a pretty poor game, but the setting, the atmosphere, the plot, the characters are all very much opera-style. And I like opera. The artistic cred of this game is something special.
4) Project Zero 2 - the greatest horror game remade perfectly. This game takes the technical weakness of the Wii, and twists it in a way that actually benefits the game.
5) Fortune Street - its like Monopoly, only smart. The depth to this game is amazing, as evidenced by the many people who thought the AI 'cheated' (no, you just suck)
6) Art Style Rotohex - I like all the art style games, but this one had me addicted more than any other. Not since Tetris have I been so hooked on a high score puzzle game
7) Final Fantasy My Life As King - as a fan of sim games, I appreciated the Final Fantasy twist to this one. Watching the city build up around you was enormously rewarding
8) Little Kings Story - what KKslider said
9) Fragile Dreams - purely for the story, this is one of the most downbeat, intelligent stories I have ever played. A sad, but beautiful experience.
10) Smash Brothers Brawl - because I am the true legend of winning by trolling Pikachu's taunt to the point where everyone comes after me, then zapping them into oblivion. Seriously, if you saw my stats with Pikachu, you would be horrified by how good I got at that tactic.


1.wii sports of dead 2 & 3 of dead overkill


"Its All About Those 2x Houston Rockets, 5x Dallas Cowboys, 1x Houston Astros, Texas A&M Aggies".


Top three are interchangeable and I'm pretty indecisive on the rest too.

1. Xenoblade Chronicles
2. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
3. Super Mario Galaxy 2
4. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
5. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
6. Metroid Prime Trilogy
7. Donkey Kong Country Returns
8. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
9. Monster Hunter Tri
10. Muramasa: The Demon Blade

I think that's roughly it.
I decided to omit Galaxy 1 as the games are too similar for me to include both and I enjoyed the second one more.

1.The Last Story - A masterful balance between brilliant,and heartfelt storytelling,and frantic,action based combat.
A lengthy story will make you laugh,cry,and feel for the characters ,because they're so likeable,and so human.
The combat is fantastic,a very new and unique take on the action RPG.And the music is phenomenal.
The best game on Wii,and the best RPG in years,hands down.

2.Super Mario Galaxy 2 -I was never really that keen on the original Galaxy tbh,but this sequel did it for me,with it's beautiful music,masterful level design,and obviously the inclusion of Yoshi.No other 3D Mario game,came close enough to rival Mario 64,till this came and show how to do a proper Mario game,and not one of the Old Super Mario crap.

3.Xenoblade Chronicles - I was never really a big fan of JRPG's until I played this game,a massive game with so much to explore and do,it's amazing to see something like this on Wii.The story is a edge of your seat type of plot,with many characters that you actually do care about getting killed off,the game isn't afraid of playing with your emotions.This,and The Last Story has the best soundtrack on Wii.

4.Twilight Princess- The darkest entry in the Zelda series to date,is a brilliant game,with a massive open world to explore(even if it's a bit empty),fantastic dungeons,and equally fantastic enemy design.Bigger and longer than Skyward Sword,and a little bit better.

5.Skyward Sword - It's took Nintendo years to do it,but they've finally made a killer app for their Motion Plus accessory,and this has to be the biggest innovated title in the series since Ocarina of Time.With little changes like Shield damage,and upgrading your weapons,and potions.It's clear Nintendo took some help from the Metroid Prime series,with it's new environments.The only thing I wish they did,was made the final Boss a bit epic-ier.

6.Rayman Origins - Nintendo this is how you make a 2D platformer.
This hilarious,and brilliant plat-former brings Rayman back into the limelight again,with loads of replay-ability,and much better designed levels than the okay New Super Mario Bros Wii.

7.Metroid Prime Trilogy -3 awesome games in one,for £30.Now you can't grumble at that.
A brilliant package of some of the best NIntendo games,of the past ten years,with hoards of unlockables,and over 100 hours of content.

8.Super Smash Bros Brawl - It took it's time to come out but Brawl is a unforgettable entry in the ever brilliant fighting series.
A bucket load of characters,and stages,and add an un-beleive-able about of content.I just wish the online was better.

9.The Beatles Rock Band -The only music game you need on Wii,this charts the career of one of the most influential bands of the 21 Century.
With 45 brilliant tracks,with many more tracks available from the music store,I wish there was more songs,but still a beautiful music game,crated with love.
Wii love you. Wii can work it out. With love from Wii to you.

10.Goldeneye 007 - A 2010 re-imagining of the 90's classic is the best shooter of Wii,with a brilliant campaign mode,and the best online game on Wii.

My hands hurt now,please take pity.

Oh yeah, if I was going solely by story it would be number 1. Easily. Love the story and all the optional stories you can find, and the atmosphere is pratically perfect. Probably the worst game I've played that I have no regrets buying at full price.

In no particular order -

-Super Mario Galaxy
-Super Mario Galaxy 2
-Little King's Story
-Donkey Kong Country Returns
-Rhythm Heaven Fever
-Trauma Team
-Cave Story
-The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
-The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
-Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Honorable Mentions - Wario Land: Shake It!, Rayman Origins, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, World of Goo, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon

If I was forced to pick a single favorite, it'd be Galaxy 2; for me, it was the closest thing to 3D platforming perfection. A spot for Xenoblade Chronicles in the ten is probably pending, but I'm not finished playing it yet and won't be for a long while. Okami and Resident Evil 4 probably should be in there too, but I'll always think of them as games for the systems I first played them on (although if I did count them, they'd be right there with Galaxy 2 for my favorite game). And I really, really, really wanted to love Fragile Dreams, but I found the actual game part of the experience so off-putting at times that I only liked it.

Yeah the gameplay was I think trying to be the intentionally bad survival horror thing. I've almost never liked this idea. If the gameplay sucks on purpose...that just means the gameplay sucks. Congrats.

10: Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3
I don't care if Dragon Ball games are basically the same game over and over, this was my introduction to Dragon Ball and i can still enjoy it even after 3-4 years

9: Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
This game was so much fun! I always liked the track the best

7: New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Oh New Super Mario Bros. Wii i can't quit you...Note:excited for New Super Mario Bros. U

6: Pokemon Battle Revolution

4: Naruto Clash of Ninja Revolution
I was a HUGE Naruto fan when i first played this game so you can guess i played the fudge out of it

3: Super Mario Galaxy
I Love this game! it's just...THE MUSIC Nerd voice on TEH GRAFIX!!!! Nerd voice off THE STO-okay maybe not the story but i liked the storybook!

2: Epic Mickey
As you could probably tell I'm a big Mickey fan AND I LOVE THIS GAME!!! YES NO PRETENSE, I STILL DO! But not nearly as much as what i consider to be the best wii game nintendo published

1: Super Mario Galaxy 2
I LOVE THIS GAME!!! IF I COULD MARRY A VIDEO GAME THIS WOULD BE THE ONE!!! I'm sorry if i seem a little bit to enthusiastic but THIS GAME,NO THIS MASTERPIECE! Took Super Mario Galaxy and made it EVEN BETTER! THE MUSIC THE GRAPHICS THE STORY THE EVERYTHING IS BETTER!!!(in my honest opinion)
