5 Best Nintendo Wii Games that Nobody Played

Bright Hub writes: "The Wii is the most popular game system in America and publishers are doing the best to get as many games out for the system as possible. While this shotgun approach to game design may result in a large number of available titles for the system, it inevitably leads to some great games getting lost in the shuffle and some gamers missing out simply because they never had a chance to check out an excellent game.

Fortunately, we here at Bright Hub have furiously scoured the Wii's back catalog to dig up some unsung gems from the system's library. These great games may never have achieved large sales numbers, but they remain among the best for the system." (BOOM BLOX, Boom Blox: Blast Party, Geometry Wars: Galaxies, MadWorld, Super Paper Mario, Wii, Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure)

well...
i guess I am a "nobody" then as I have 3 of those 5 games.

This guy's lists are great. He pretty much nailed it again, but it's unfortunate that Mercury Meltdown Revolution didn't make this list (although it did make another one of his lists!)

I have 4/5 of those games, they're all great, to say the least. I played Super Paper Mario and didn't like it, so that's the only reason I didn't buy it.

i owned all of them and played them all..

zak and wiki was kinda meh once you finish it there is no replay.. paper mario was boring, geometry wars was fun, boom blox was okay though lost its charm after a lil bit, and Madworld looked awsome but i got bored after 30 mins of gameplay.

there is 2 games on my wii that i love.. SMASH BROS, and NO MORE HEROES.. Travis Touchdown is da sh!t.

also mario galaxy was fun.. though playing as Luigi is a bit hard.

GWG and NMH or my fav games on my Wii. I'd even be controversial and say that NMH is better than Madworld.

is how you can play the full geo wars retro on the ds from dl it off the wii version.

Nintendo...now King for shovelware
The shotgun approach to producing games has only done one thing...create massive amounts of craptastic titles on the Wii. What in the heck happened to the Nintendo Seal of Quality?? Point and click and puzzle games are something most people play for free online.

The funny thing is that I can't think of even 5 games I really like on this system. The launch titles like Zelda, Metroid and Mario galaxy were great, and the recently released Punch out was also terriic. Well that's 4 games... and how long has this system been out,lol.

The new Metroid game looks promising as well as the Super Mario Wii coming out soon but other than that its a wash unless you love kiddie games.

I own 34 wii games. Most are puzzlers that involve twisting the wiimote (marble/mercury/boom blox series) or rail shooters or stuff like trauma center that can't be done on other systems. I played pc games for years but this system hits the spot. I can think of 5+ nintendo games that are universally acclaimed, let alone 5 total.

ITT: people who don't understand that Nintendo doesn't make every Wii game ever, and that the Nintendo Seal of Quality doesn't really mean anything, and never did.

The most popular console always gets a ton of shovelware. Fact. It happened with NES, SNES, GB, GBA, PS1, and PS2. Now it's happening with Wii. See a pattern? They all were the most popular consoles at the time.

The correct choice for this sort of thing is Little King's Story, which I suspect even less people played than any of the games on this list.
BlackIceJoe  +   2313d ago
Well I own Boom Blox, Super Paper Mario, Madworld & Zack and Wiki. So I must have good taste. I so would love to see another Zack and Wiki game on the Wii. I also would love to see the game come out on the DS. Because I think the DS could be a great fit for the Zack and Wiki series.

too bad that not many people played: Madworld, boom bloxes, super paper mario :/ they are soo good games..
TrollSlayer  +   2313d ago
this list is a bit off
you only had to pick 5 underselling titles and yet the guy has 2 million sellers on his list.
