Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (10th Dec)
Posted by Corbie Dillard
It's Wednesday again which can only mean one thing. It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available in the Wii Shop. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to your Wii Shop channel, heading into the WiiWare section and then viewing "Popular Games". It's that simple! Trust us, if we can do it, anyone can.
We compile this list using the USA region Wii Shop channel, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.
Keep in mind that the list below is a measure of actual sales made recently, not of the total time the game has been available for sale.
Here is the list for the 10th of December:
1 - World of Goo
2 - Tetris Party
3 (3) - My Aquarium
4 (4) - Target Toss Pro: Bags
5 (5) - Brain Challenge
6 (6) - Dr Mario Online Rx

The "Big Three" are still hanging tight on the top three spots and they're showing no signs of letting go. It goes without saying that World of Goo, Tetris Party, and My Aquarium have already been three of the most successful WiiWare titles to date and their dominance seems to be continuing with no end in sight.
We've had another launch title casualty as LostWinds has finally slipped off the charts and it looks like the last of the Strong Bad titles is about ready to drop off as well.
Instead of its usual slow descent down the charts, Pong Toss has managed to climb a spot this week. Could this title be on its way back up the charts? We'll have to wait and see.
The biggest climber this week was Space Invaders Get Even, as it went from not even making the Top 20 last week, all the way up to #8. The biggest dropper this week was Strong Bad Episode 4 - Dangeresque 3, which fell 8 spots to #20.
While Space Invaders Get Even popped way up onto the charts this week, it's fellow release from last week Hudson's Pit Crew Panic still hasn't cracked the Top 20. Has Hudson lost its magic touch lately on the WiiWare service?
