Released November 19th, 2006, the Wii was Nintendo’s seventh generation console. Competing against the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, WII held the lead in the console wars, selling more than 101 million units in the first quarter of 2012 and it maintained its dominance for several years before eventually fading out. It was one of Nintendo’s biggest hits and with it came some truly remarkable games. In celebration of the console’s ten-year anniversary Tim, Rick, and Patrick count down the ten best games released for the system. All this and more!

With the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey being only the third Mario game in the same vein as Super Mario 64 (following Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine), it is high time to reexamine one of the evergreen staples of the video game canon.

‘Milocrorze: A Love Story’ Is Unlike Anything You’ve Seen Before

Review: ‘Absolver’ – The Alchemist’s Punch

Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.

‘The Elder Scrolls Online’: There’s No Place Like… Anywhere Else

I wasn't simply drawn back by the fanboy nostalgia for one of the titles that helped shape my gaming tastes to this day. No, the decision was primarily taken because remembering what games like this meant to me back during my illness made me consider what it was that I found so appealing about them, and ESO in particular.

    Ima murder some bruthas after this one. I wish I had been there to defend the honor of Skyward Sword and Xenoblade Chronicles.

  • Mike Worby

    Also, how the hell is DKCR not on this list? God damn it. DKCR is legit the best Donkey Kong game of all time.

    • I’m with you. A crime for not making the top ten on the original list, frankly (though I believe Tropical Freeze is better, DKR is incredible). But, I had to choose between DK and Metroid as to who was more screwed… I chose Metroid.

  • Mike Worby

    It just kills me that there was no one there to bring the xeno love.

    • I believe I expressed my love for Xenoblade Chronicles X… I’ll get around to trying XC again at some point, but I can’t lie – those opening hours didn’t inspire me to keep playing. I certainly didn’t vote for it to go anywhere on the list, let alone top ten, so couldn’t argue with it being taken off.

      • Mike Worby

        I suppose that’s true :p I just feel like XCX is so vastly inferior to the original that I was exasperated to listen. But hey, each to his own, I’ll consider this pay back for our veritable thrashing of the Wii U 😀

  • Ricky D Fernandes

    I could only bring in one game and I chose Okami, which in my opinion, belongs on the list of 100 best games of this century. I was shocked myself of the removal of Xenoblade. I never had much time to properly enjoy the game, but it is one of those Nintendo exclusives that belongs on the top 10.

  • Mike Worby

    Honestly I was surprised Okami even made the list, as I always think of it as a PS2 game. I’ve always thought these kinds of lists should be limited to exclusives, as those are primarily the games that people will remember playing on the console but that’s just me.
