The 50 best Wii games

Postby Stryker89 » 30 Nov 2012, 17:23

Personally, I'd place Donkey Kong Country Returns a lot higher, and move Skyward Sword down several notches. That's just me, though.

I badly wanna play The Last Story and Xenoblade Chronicles but forking out £50 - £100 on a Wii just isn't worth it. I wish they'd come to the Vita like Little King's Story.

Both games are well worth whatever price for the system.

Vita got a new game, not a port of the old game

Both are very good games. I would suggest buying a Wii console to play them and then sell it again once done. The option of keeping the games if or when you get a Wii U is your's. There are loads of great games you've missed out on.

I only briefly got a chance to play on the Wii when my brother had one, but he ended up selling it so he could get an Xbox instead, so I only really got to play SSMB.

But I intend on getting a Wii U once Pikmin 3 comes out, so I'm starting my collection of Wii games now to play in anticipation! Thanks, CVG! =D

Did I miss the mention of Excite Truck? Certainly not the greatest game ever but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

£40 from cex with a 12 month guarantee, about the same as you'd pay for this weeks "must have" generic shooter / dlc marketplace and those two games alone will last longer than pretty much any AAA title on ps3 or 360.

btw where the hell is cursed mountain on that top 50 list?

You've said you prefer RPGs to racers so fair enough. But it was a fairly good racer with interesting ideas.
