GamePro Feature: The 28 Best Wii Games

Nintendo's fifth video game console, the Wii, has only been on store shelves for less than two years (and that's not counting the months after its release where it was impossible to find in stores), but the its already building an extensive library of excellent games. Read on as GamePro names the 28 games every Wii owner should play! (BOOM BLOX, Bully: Scholarship Edition, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Geometry Wars: Galaxies, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, LostWinds, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Strikers Charged, Mercury Meltdown Revolution, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, No More Heroes, okami, Order Up!, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, Rock Band, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Trauma Center: Second Opinion, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Wii, Wii Fii, Wii Sports)

Not that many months ago, Wii was in my opinion still at second place when it came to games. But in recent months, PS3 has overtaken Wii. I haven't had the urge to buy a single Wii title in months and don't see myself buying one for months to come. I think Nintendo ought to address this problem.

But then you'll miss out on deBlob. How will you fill that hole in your life? More importantly how will the game be able to take that kind of rejection?

I agree with the top nine, but it's a shame there are so many poor games making up the rest of the top twenty eight.

And it's a shame that there were several decent ports of last generation games (Okami, RE4, Bully) but no decent ports of current gen games.

It's Gamepro and they hate the Wii. I'm sure this is a crappy list. Lets be honest, you couldnt even come up with 28 games for PS3 that are worth owning. Same for Wii. Its just their way of trying to make the console look bad.

I think most gamers don't get the point
The wii is not competeing for the same gamers. I just bought my kids a wii, it's a fun little system. I don't think anyone would trade their PS3 or 360 for it. The wii has different games that appeal to people that would normally not play games. Just look at who's buying the wii, Soccor moms, older people and that's why the wii sells a ton, because they hit the mainstream public. PS3 and 360 is still a hardcore game system. From my experiance comparing the wii and PS3 is like comparing apples and oranges, different gamers

This really makes the Wii look terrible LOL
28. Order Up! - a cooking game…. Wow
27. Mercury Meltdown Revolution - a pinball game?
26. Blast Works: Trade, Build, Destroy - what?
25. Geometry Wars: Galaxies - a game already available on XBLA… for cheaper… and in HD
24. Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles - a rail shooter game. But it is RE
23. Trauma Center Second Opinion - a DS rehash
22. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock - this is one of the best Wii games? Not even mentioned for “best games” for those ACTUAL games systems like 360 and PS3
21. Rock Band - virtually same as GHIII
20. Bully - a rehashed PS2 game
19. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn - a decent RPG, probably deserves to be on this list actually
18. LEGO Star Wars: Complete Saga - on every other system
17. WarioWare: Smooth Moves - bunch of mini games
16. Wii Fit - a $90 work out video
15. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King - a good start for WiiWare
14. LostWinds - never heard much about it…
13. Wii Sports - bowling is fun, but Christ this isn’t really a “game”, this comes with the system
12. Mario Kart Wii - virtually the same as every other Mario Kart game
11. Mario Strikers Charged - a soccer game? Really?
10. Boom Blox - I’ve heard some good things, seems fun
09. No More Heroes - seems like a good game. I’ve heard good things
08. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption - a lot like the others, but if it’s good it’s good
07. Okami - a rehashed PS2 game
06. Super Smash Bros. Brawl - a lot like the previous Smash Bros. games
05. Zach & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure - sounds like a Nickelodeon characters and Pirates of the Caribbean combined. LOL that might be good?
04. Super Paper Mario - a lot like previous Paper Mario games…
03. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - a lot like previous Zelda games…
02. Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition - a rehashed PS2 game…
01. Super Mario Galaxy - duh… not “original” in a full sense, but great game

I don't mean to hate on Nintendo, but they've really disappointed me this gen (and with the Gamecube...). and while people complain about the numerous crap games, they should also note how many games for the Wii are rehashes of other systems or are just a bunch of mini games (Wii Sports, WarioWare, Order Up!...).

Nintendo, please for the sake of your fans (true fans... not these "Wii fans") take a break. save up your millions from the Wii and really make a great system for next gen. recover, or give it up.

...but you wont because you looooooove making money off foolish parents
