That was just one of the surprises that Wii owners had in the last 12 months. A Dead Space on-rails shooter? A new-wave Pong shmup/music game? Metroid Prime being declared the Citizen Kane of gaming? A hand-drawn remake/sequel to A Boy and His Blob? New, exclusive, 16-bit-looking Gradius, Contra, and Castlevania games? What a weird year in Wii games it was."
