Farewell to the Wii (2006-2012) | gamrReview

gamrReview's Alex St-Amour: "As we stand on the verge of a whole new slate of experiences with the Wii U I figured it would be fun to look back at the games that helped make the Wii the Wii". (Just Dance 2, Mario Kart Wii, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Wii, Wii Sports, Wii U, Xenoblade Chronicles)

Gotta say I agree with most of those picks; those games really did define those years for the Wii (for better or for worse).

Wii's been dead since well before 2012. Just saying.

lol, kinda true, though Xenoblade was a good swan song and that was 2012.

I know many people would say it is not good that so many defining titles for the system were 1st party but I think that the quality on some of the games you listed, like Skyward Sword, is so high that it does not matter.

This system will be remembered long after PS360 are dead and gone. A story of David defeats two Goliaths. Wii defined a generation of gamers and non-gamers. To deny this is simplistic ignorance. This console will symbolize Nintendo's immortality and whether this generation of "core gamers" believe it, will be irrelevant.

I'll keep mine active. I still have most of my Gamecube games and my Gamecube is a little shaky. Understandable considering its been dropped a few times. lol
