    Opinions are opinions, GR made a list of their favourite Wii games, and even included a page stating "What do you think?". This doesn't mean that everyone will agree with them; imagine how boring it would be if everybody did. If everyone agreed with everyone on everything the world would be a horribly shit place. I thought Red Steel 2 was fun.

    You guys missed Monster Hunter Tri.
  • artcellrox - February 12, 2013 12:47 a.m.

    It's in the list.

    Although I love Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime 3, I'm going to have to say Deadly Creatures is the best. The environment is detailed, the plot interesting, and the combat very satisfying. Still a good list, GR.

    Pretty funny how the other two console lists had no exclusives and this one is fucking loaded with them Whatever I already knew the Wii was the best console anyway it's the only one with actually interesting games

    Not sure if trolling. I haven't seen the other lists in which you speak of, but there's no way Wii was the best console nor the only one with actually interesting games. I got the wii for X-mas, and aside from a few party games from time to time, it sees no daylight. Maybe the other 2 systems couldn't boast exclusives because most of the best games were avialable on both the Xbox 360 and the PS3, but if gamesradar didn't include Gears of War, Left 4 Dead for Xbox 360 nor Uncharted 2, InFamous 2, God of War 3 in best games for the PS3 then gamesradar is obviously a fucking joke (I'm guessing they aren't that bad). The Wii is absoultely terrible and the only games I'd even bother to pick up for it are mario/zelda games (and Monster Hunter Tri). Other than that, it should just quietly retire into console history as lame. The only reason it sold so well and broke so many records is because it was a party game system had games that weren't even really games (exercise shit and quiz/trivia shit) so everybody had a use for it outside of just as a gaming device. My grandparents have a Wii for Christ sakes and they're not even gamers by any stretch of the imagination. People bought Wii's for each other and their families as X-mas gifts with not much intention for them to be used for hardcore gaming or anything. The system just hit as a casual device that people should just have for parties and family fun (a modern board-game replacement). The PS3 (maybe I'm biased) is easily the best system/gaming library of this gen. Xbox 360 is more for first-person shooter jocks and online gamer junkies than anything (although some hardcore, non-shooter gamers love it and prefer it to the PS3 I suppose). But the PS3 has an actually deep and interesting gaming library outside of relying on FPS's and cheap gimick family/party games. Uncharted series, InFamous series, God of War 3, Ratchet & Clank games, Little Big Planet -it may be a family/party game, but it at least has its own interesting charm and the ability to customize and create-, I would also mention Resistance but I don't want to include FPS's in the list so as to seperate it from 360. PS3 also had some great DLC exclusives like Scott Pilgrim, Journey, InFamous:Festival of Blood, etc. I haven't even needed to bring up the actual multi-system games that made 360 and PS3 better than Wii, but feel free to ask and I'll list so many you'll feel baffled. Good day, sir. While I respect your right to opinion. I firmly believe your opinion sucks and is without strong basis.

    And of course it didn't break up my post into paragraphs (grumble)

    While I agree there are a lot of truly great games that are available for both 360 and PS3 (and PC by and large) that aren't available for Wii (or at best, are terrible versions of said games), MetroidPrimeRib is referring to the best console exclusives, a category that the Wii is filled to the brim with. It's unfortunate that you write the Wii off simply because it sells well to a wide demographic. I don't suppose you have a facebook account or a cell phone either because they too have branched out and tapped into a wider range of people? Just because the Wii is accessible to people who aren't core games doesn't mean that it fails to deliver a ton of truly great content to those that are. I've already gotten into a similar argument with someone else on this thread (but it was subsequently removed when a third party came in and dropped a few too many f bombs) but I'll reiterate: I love video games. The medium can deliver experiences like no other. I consider myself a connoisseur of video games and I try to encourage people to be the same. But if you really are a fan of the medium and you neglect the entirety of the Wii's library, there's no denying that you are missing out on some of the best experiences this generation has to offer and thus failing to be what I consider to be a well rounded gamer. But that's not for everyone. Some people would rather defend to their deaths console A or B and neglect the classics (or future classics for this discussion.) And they have the right to do that. But to come in here and dismiss what really is a remarkable library composed by the undisputed best creative geniuses on the market with the most storied franchises is simply wrong.

    Like I give a shit about multi-plats on consoles I have a PC why would I get multi-plats on my PS3/360? Wii dominates exclusive wise, Nintendo has the best AAA titles and the best third party titles
  • Ironarm - April 7, 2012 9:49 a.m.

    I gotta agree with Rib here. The Wii is a fricking powerhouse when it comes to exclusives. *cough* Xenoblade Chronicles *cough*
  • winner2 - April 6, 2012 12:31 p.m.

    Twighlight Princess. Personally I liked it infinitely more on the gamecube, but that consoles days have passed unfortunately. Still an amazing game on the wii though.
  • ncurry2 - April 7, 2012 8:40 a.m.

    Here here! I never played it on GC since I had a Wii before it even came out for the purple box but I honestly think Twilight Princess is still my favorite game of all time. The only complaint people ever seem to have with it is that it's too similar to OoT, a game that has been heralded as the greatest game of all time from the day it was released up until now. I don't see how if you are objectively looking at the game, how that diminishes its quality. I would imagine though that in the same way they only included Galaxy 2, they probably only included one Zelda game and gave it to the exclusive one that actually used the remote for good things.
  • Canvas_Of_Flesh - April 6, 2012 12:16 p.m.

    Every couple of months I debate with myself endlessly about whether or not to get a Wii finally. Unfortunately, it never breaks the 10 game rule I have. A console must have at least 10 games that I really really want to play before I can allow myself to purchase it. It sucks because I'd love to play Madworld, Lost Story, and Xenoblade Chronicles, but I just can't buy a system just to play the 3-5 games that I really want to play.
  • J-Fid - April 7, 2012 8:29 a.m.

    I have those same debates, only it's me debating about getting a PS3. I can't find more than 4-5 games that I would actually play. However, I do have a Wii, and enjoy it very much.
  • DecoyOctorok - April 7, 2012 8:05 p.m.

    I'm the same way with the PS3. The Wii has a lot more exclusives that I'm interested in.
  • jDeuce - April 6, 2012 12:16 p.m.

    I bought 2 extra Wii consoles with portable display attachments, so my sons and I can play a MORPG with no monthly subscription... Monster Hunter Tri. I agree with the majority of the list but none of them have the replay value Monster Hunter Tri has.
  • ThatGamerDude - April 6, 2012 11:49 a.m.

    I personally, would've included Pokemon Battle Revolution in here. It may have not been the best pokemon game, but it's multiplayer was extremely addicting for me! Best part about it was importing your Pokemon from Diamond and Pearl and using them to battle other people online.
  • Ultimadrago - April 6, 2012 11:29 a.m.

    Little King's Story is fantastic. Sucks that it sold peanuts.
  • ncurry2 - April 6, 2012 11:46 a.m.

    Can not agree with this more. One of the best games out there and it sold like 150,000.
