    "Not much of the core gameplay changed between Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl" Please please please never say that again

    Gamesradar bemoans how everyone overlooked Okami and then overlook it in their best Wii games article. Oh, the irony.

    "DKCR is a lush, vibrant reimagining of the DKC franchise, and one that we hope to see expanded in the future." You guys might want to fix that, Tropical Freeze exists.

    They say simplicity is the essence of elegance. I think that is part of why the Wii become popular. As of that time developers added a lot of buttons and commands to the controllers for efficiency but to a newcomer you can tell something that looks more understandable will be more appealing. I liked the Wii more than the Gamecube, it had a greater stream of games and most for a time retained something other systems had little to known; color. I mean I also liked that games in the other systems finally got better are making games in a cinematic way, because realism really hadn't catch that much until this past gen. Still the Wii was a huge balance because while newer systems had that style, the Wii had more attempts at experimenting with presentation. Some gems of that system are the pulp fictionesque No More Heroes, the Sin City looking Mad World, the beautiful posapocalyptic Fragile, the surreal World of Goo, the space opera Mario Galaxy etc. The wiimote also had potential for third person shooters; how the hell only RE4 and Sin & Punishment were the only games in that genre that use it?

    Dont Forget Metroid Prime 3/Trilogy's controls. Holy shit that control scheme was perfect for shooters but Nobody else used it.
  • Vonter - March 5, 2014 3:51 p.m.

    More FPS used it even though most were of the on-rails fashion. But I'm mad not more third person shooters used it because it seems more natural. Like in Twilight Princess using the bow is overkill because of how precise it can be. Could you imagine one of those cool Transformers game using it? I recall thinking Nier magical attacks would have benefitted from that scheme. I will kill for the original Dead Space with that scheme.

    WHY THE HECK NOT, LETS FUND IT

    No one else used it because devs were too busy making clones on HD consoles. It's funny how everyone ragged on the Wii, but as time distances itself more people turn around and say the Wii was actually a really good console. Some thing happened to the Gamecube. Seems to be the trend in Nintendo consoles as of late.

    As a Zelda fan, I actually found Skyward Sword not to be that good. The best thing in it was Ghirahim and maybe the use of flying, but motion controls is the worst thing the Zelda series has seen. Some may have liked it, but it made for really awkward and frustrating combat.

    Where is the first Super Mario Galaxy??? What about Twilight Princess as well?
  • NinjitsuEvolved - December 4, 2013 7:34 a.m.

    MadWorld should be higher, Smash Bros. should be lower, and am I the only person who prefers the original No More Heroes to it's sequel???
  • SuperNintendoFan - July 15, 2013 11:49 a.m.

    Have to say. Very surprised that Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess didn't make the list and Skyward Sword did. I think that game is quite a lot better in my opinion.
  • LittleGreen - February 27, 2014 2:03 p.m.

    It was listed on the Best GameCube games of all time list
  • BladedFalcon - February 14, 2013 9:35 p.m.

    Pretty nice list, I gotta say. I still don't regret not getting a wii, but there's definitely several games here that I'd like to play someday, so perhaps one day I'll might just buy a wii for cheap and get several of these.

    "As time goes on, memories of the Wii's failings are replaced with celebrations of its successes." Just couldn't do it could ya? Even when making a list of some of the best games this generation, or ever, someone on the staff couldn't help but take an unsupported stab at the Wii. What are the "failings"? Do you mean things you personally didn't like? Do you include this phrase for all other best of articles, because every console has something someone could call a failing? This is why gaming journalism can't be respected. There are no standards, no promise of objectivity.
  • BladedFalcon - February 14, 2013 9:26 p.m.

    Again, love how you keep rambling about objectivity when you're being a clear fanboy. I'm guessing you're ignorant of what "hypocrisy" means, hm? or maybe you just love being one for the hell of it?
  • talleyXIV - March 6, 2013 2:26 p.m.

    I have to agree with him Falcon. It is a list of best games, to say something like that is just unnecessary.
  • clownferret - February 13, 2013 3:01 a.m.

    good list and there are a few games on there I had not even heard of, so will be tracking them down. However, there simply has to be a Tiger Woods game on here. 4 player online Tiger with motion controls is a close to the real thing as you can get and was an absolute revolution. Playing with a traditional controller now seems ancient and in my opinion no game made a better argument for motion controls over graphics than TW10 and onwards.
