College News writes, "With the end of 2009 in sight, it's time to take a look back at how one of the big three video game companies fared with the type of games that sell consoles--the exclusives.
Of the three companies (the other two being Microsoft and Sony), Nintendo actually did a lot better with their 2009 exclusives than they have in previous years. First-party Nintendo titles had a huge presence with hits like New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Metroid Prime Trilogy and Punch-Out!, just to name a few, and third-party companies like Square-Enix, 5th Cell and Vanillaware stepped up to deliver some of Nintendo's biggest exclusive titles.
Here are the top ten exclusives that Nintendo managed to snag for their Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS consoles. Each of these games can't be found anywhere else and are definitely worth playing over the holiday season."
