Wii's launch lineup?

Over at Next Generation, a list of likely launch games for the Wii has been posted... which contains very few surprises, and a lot of kiddie crap.

While we're not entirely convinced of the truth of the list - which comes from Wedbush Morgan Securities, a bunch of dudes who get paid tons of money to track this stuff - it's not like you've got a better one at the moment, right?

The good stuff, you already probably know: Zelda, of course. But the list also promises a slew of games based on kids' movies and TV: The Ant Bully, The Grim Adventures of Billy %26 Mandy, Happy Feet, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Barnyard, Cars, Open Season and SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab. Doesn't it send chills down your spine?

Of course, games like Trauma Center: Second Opinion and the surprisingly coolDragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 should take the sting out. Check out the full listhereand get ready for some serious trade-ins.
