    There is no reason at all for Rayman to be on that list... Both Endless Ocean games, Twilight Princess, Sonic Colors, Red Steel 2, The Resident Evil chronicles, All the games listed before it AND Monster Hunter Tri are eons better than that crap New Super Mario Bros Wii rip off... Some times I just don't get GR Lol

    Dude... did you even play Rayman Origins? Seriously. That game is the tits. It's l almost like a mathematical certainty, really. If you need further clarification or embellishment, I will provide for you this engrossingly simplistic and clear equation, the better for you to understand: Ahem... RAYMAN ORIGINS == THE TITS That's like, graduate or even doctorate thesis level algorithmic logic and problem solving right there, condensed into one tremendously beautiful algebraic certainty. That's like on the same level of Einstein's E=mc^2, his special theory of relativity... and that one's just a theory, it's not even a certainty. And to think that you have me to thank for that. A law of the universe, right there. You're welcome, people. You're welcome.

    What a great list. My take (goddamn you Gamesradar for screwing up the formatting... I know it's coming but there's nothing I can do) 1) Super Mario Galaxy 2 2) No More Heroes 3) No More Heroes 2 4) Super Mario Galaxy 5) Endless Ocean: Blue World 6) Kirby's Epic Yarn 7) Red Steel 2 8) Zack and Wiki 9) Sin and Punishment 10) Muramasa

    Muramasa sucked hard but the rest of those games are solid. I would have put Resident Evil 4 on there even if it was just an enhanced port.
  • cusman - November 16, 2012 8:11 a.m.

    I loved Resident Evil 4 on Wii
  • NG14916 - April 8, 2012 4:34 p.m.

    Has everyone forgotten about Metroid Prime 3?
  • talleyXIV - April 8, 2012 2:15 p.m.

    Hello? Zelda: Twilight Princess??
  • codystovall - April 8, 2012 12:12 p.m.

    My least favorite consoles life is almost over Hurray!
  • GameManiac - April 8, 2012 9:50 a.m.

    I would've thought to have seen Okami in this list, especially with how much Gamesradar loves it.

    NSMB Wii doesn't deserve to be on the list. GR only gave it a 7 and didn't seem to think much of it back when they talked about it on Tdar.
  • Squirrel - April 7, 2012 8:19 p.m.

    I entirely disagree, I love NSMB Wii. I think looking back on it a 7 was a pretty low score to give that game and now GR seems to acknowledge that since its on their top 25 list. Honestly I even liked NSMB Wii better than Rayman Origins and that reviewed inappropriately high on most sites.

    I still see a Mario game appearing ever so often, and simply because of this, i choose not to believe the wii has an awesomely large collection of games. Yes there are good games but whenever i think wii, Mario appears in my head, and I would not want to stick with Mario for a whole console generation. Sorry wii, just not buying it
  • DecoyOctorok - April 7, 2012 4:12 p.m.

    That's your own problem then. Anyone that claims that the Wii was all waggling gimmicks never gave it a fair chance. It has plenty of great games.
  • ncurry2 - April 7, 2012 4:32 p.m.

    Well you must hate all video game systems then. Op, 360 has a halo. It sucks. Op, PS3 has a gran turismo. It sucks. Op, PC has a new sim city game. It sucks. Ever stop and consider that maybe Mario has remained a critical and commercial success for 25 years now because the games continue to evolve and deliver some of the best experiences on any console? Or did you play Super Mario Bros on NES and assume that every game after that was a remake?
  • mbavalo - April 14, 2012 2:16 a.m.

    hahaha, funny. in my case, each and every time i see a collection of nintendo games there is always mario dominating! give him a break. Have you ever seen gamesRadar having an article asking whether or not they should give grand turismo a break? no, but they have one about mario. When you see the nintendo gamers website, who appears in the main picture/thumbnail? you guessed it, that freakin plumber! mario was cool but now they are just too lazy to make new games or they are out of creative idea. And again, the number of halo games have not even hit 10,grand turismo is a simulator, its more helpful than as a game on its own, Sim city sucks, yeah, but PC gaming has its own advantages, including graphics which nintendo has not even come close to. All mario games are the same, the just add some more things to make you waste your money on it

    Nintendo has more huge mascots than any other company for a reason. They made fantastic characters almost 20 years ago and they are so great that they never had to go away. Nintendo: Mario, Link (Zelda), Kirby, Samus (Metroid), Donkey Kong, and even Punch-Out has lasted a long time. Those are five absolutely huge mascots and I didn't name characters like Yoshi or Wario who are also very recognizable. Playstation's have all kicked the bucket, Crash Bandicoot, Jak, Ratchet and Clank has lost its notoriety, and many others. Xbox: I can name two, Master Chief and Marcus from GoW. Forgive Nintendo for thinking that since their characters have lasted around 25 years each, they should keep using them in their absolutely great games. Go play Super Mario Galaxy 2 or any Zelda game and tell me that they should stop making those games just because they have done a lot of them.
  • mbavalo - May 25, 2012 1:36 p.m.

    Do you have the same meal over and over for 5 years straight without any change whatsoever? If so then you are a Nintendo fanboy. Analogy well used
  • talleyXIV - June 16, 2012 3:45 p.m.

    Halo 1 - Reach are all almost identical, all Gears of War games are almost identical, God of War games are great but again, almost the same exact experience, LittleBigPlanet (Love that game to death) is just the same as number 2. Ratchet and Clank has been the same thing for 10 years. Sure Zelda games come out a lot but they are never even close to being the same experience. Kirby games are always vastly different, Return to Dreamland and Epic Yarn are completely different. Mario games are extremely innovative, Super Mario Galaxy has been called game of the generation and number 2 got even better reviews, Metroid Other M is very different maybe to a fault, Donkey Kong has a great game every like 5 years. Nintendo uses the same characters and makes very different games.
  • mbavalo - June 18, 2012 12:40 p.m.

    Can't believe we are still having this argument. Halo. How many halo games are there. Did they say that Halo4 would be the last? god of war, how many are there? each without fox or squirrel costumes? And how often do they make a god of war game? Mario..... Mario is no longer even seen as a game. If you think Mario, you think Nintendo. Nintendo have finally caught up with this gen (a whole 6 years late) Let us hope they act like this gen. But Nintendo land is already making that hope fade away, soon you will hear "Mario land in Nintendo land", then Mario land 2 inside Nintendo land. Then, "Mario and donkey kong inside Nintendo land" and not even after a year, "Mario brothers inside Nintendo land" Man, overusing characters makes them suck. If crash bandicoot made a comeback now, it would cause more joy than any current Mario
  • ncurry2 - June 19, 2012 8:40 a.m.

    Wow, I didn't recognize any of this was going on. Let me open with saying that bringing back Crash Bandicoot would in no way, shape, or form come remotely close to any legitimate Mario game in terms of joy inducement. There's a reason why one platformer still sees huge success and the other died generations ago. More to the point; I understand you're perspective mbavalo, I do. I have friends that are the same way. The problem with the logic is that you have obviously not played any of these games that you are complaining about for a while now. Yes, they still feature a red and blue clad Italian plumber jumping and squealing through a colorful and cushy playground but the experience is so vastly different amongst them all (barring the rare exception of direct sequels but honestly, who wouldn't want another more outlandish Galaxy game?) And therein lies the issue: you don't play the games so you haven't lived the experience. It's more than the differences in mechanics, level design, general design philosophy (free-roaming nature of Mario 64 compared to the quasi linear yet still 3D nature of Super Mario 3D Land to the purely retro 2D NSMB), and difficulty which does vary quite vastly. It's an underlying subtlety that is difficult to explain but so obtrusively apparent to those of us that play them that it seems ridiculous when outsiders make these claims. I'm not saying Nintendo has no faults (far from it). I'm not saying that I wouldn't love to see new ips strongly pushed by Nintendo. But there is absolutely no reason Nintendo shouldn't still continue to develop their historic ips as well; adding innovation and inspiration where it fits but remaining true to the experience that each franchise has to offer.
