Pixelitis Picks: The greatest launch titles of any system

ou don’t buy consoles just to have a shiny electronic paperweight on your home entertainment stand. You, of course, buy consoles to play videogames. We here at Pixelitis are firm believers that consoles are only worth their weight in games, and new consoles are only worth their weight in launch titles.

The Wii U made its debut a mere three days ago, and outside of the immediate casual appeal and dire-hard Nintendo fan, many gamers this Christmas season are going to buy the new console based upon its launch software. As of right now, Super Mario Bros. Wii U, Nintendo Land and ZombiU (reviews forthcoming) are at the head of the launch window pack.

While it remains to be seen if these games make the Wii U a must have, below are a few launch titles we think best defined the early impressions of our favorite systems. It’s no surprise that Mario made the list twice. (Culture, GameCube, Halo, Nintendo, Retro, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, Super Mario 64, Wii U, Xbox)
