Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (7th Jan)

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 7th of January:

1 (1) - World of Goo
2 (2) - Tetris Party
3 (3) - My Aquarium
4 (6) - Fun! Fun! Minigolf
5 (4) - Dr Mario Online Rx
6 (7) - Tiki Towers
7 (5) - Target Toss Pro: Bags
8 (N) - Cue Sports - Pool Revolution
9 (9) - My Pokémon Ranch
10 (11) - Brain Challenge
11 (8) - Defend your Castle
12 (12) - Midnight Bowling
13 (10) - Mega Man 9

Well this is beginning to sound like a broken record, but the "big three" are still in command on the Top 20 and showing no signs of slowing down at this point. It's obviously going to take one impressive title to dethrone World of Goo from the top spot and we can't wait to see what game will be the one to do it!

The biggest climber this week is Hudson's CueSports - Pool Revolution, which jumped all the way from off the charts last week to #8 this week. We didn't see any dramatic drop with any one title this week, but we did have a three-way tie for biggest dropper this week with Defend Your Castle, Mega Man 9, and Bomberman Blast all falling a meager 3 spots on the chart.

Strong Bad Episode 5: 8-bit is Enough dropped completely off the charts, which marks the first time in a long time that we haven't had at least one Strong Bad release on the charts. With its current position, it doesn't look like Space Invaders Get Even is far behind it and will likely drop off the charts next week.

Tune in next week to see if Fun! Fun! Minigolf or Tiki Towers can possibly break into the top 3 and knock out one of the big boys. Should be interesting to watch.
