I think that's the undisputable top 3, order notwithstanding.

With Galaxy 2 probably rounding out the Top 4. Wii Sports is going to have to be way up there as well.

Twilight Princess really needs to bee above Skyward Sword, even though I don't really consider it a Wii game.

No More Heroes 2 in the top 9? That game was very inferior to its predecessor at best. Edit: WHOA WHOA WHOA ABOVE RESIDENT EVIL 4 ARE YOU FUCKING INSANE?

I also think Galaxy 1 should be above 2. One has a much stronger impact. 2 didn't really add that much, it was more difficult, whatever that's worth. It's not like an NES comparison where 3 added everything and the kitchen sink to 1.

Also, I think the list ought to be clipped at 50. There are a lot of bad games in that second half. Wii music....good lord.

Curious, does anyone have an opinion on the Wii version of MW3?

Why does RE4 deserve such a lofty position?

Why not? It's a more intuitive game with the wiimote than control sticks IMO. Plus you get all the content from all previous incarnations of the game.

I don't think that alone warrants an immediate top 10 placement at all. Literally every other game in the top 10 is more deserving of placement, maybe even some outside of it.

I'm really, really going to regret asking this, but what makes the Wii version of Twilight Princess rank top over Skyward Sword?

Jesus at least I attempted to reason why Resident Evil 4 should be higher. :lol:

Do you want specifics? Twilight Princess outsold Skyward Sword, received higher reviews and more awards than Skyward Sword, is more highly regarded amongst the fandom and general gaming community than Skyward Sword, and exceeds Skyward Sword in certain aspects of subjective criteria.
