Sounds about right. EGM is always right.

They were right about Geist and Battalion Wars sucking, the Wii being the best selling console this gen, and Twilight Princess being the best Zelda game ever.

As a fan of nintendo since the early 90's I'm always surprised when people seem shocked that nintendo leave large gaps when no games seem to be released. They've been pulling this shit for years esp close to the release of their new consoles.
They never change and I doubt they ever will.


I think since the Wii is more popular than the GC or N64 that they would do like Sony and keep the Wii around for a while after their new console launched. 


I hope third parties will take advantage of the Wii even when the Wii-U comes out, I'm pretty sure some of them can still make games that will sell out especially when the price tag for the Wii-U is still in question, Nintendo can make the Wii the next PS2 IF they allow 3rd party support for it and continue to sell their systems.

I totally agree this is what SHOULD happen but I doubt it will, esp considering there's very little keeping the console afloat now.

We all know that scenario is not going down, they barely got support throughout the entire gen, why would they support it at the end, when they have to support Ninty's new systems and not one but TWO systems (PS360) that still have some more fight in them. THey wont. Matter of fact there are already games that would have come out that are awol. Grand Slam Tennis 2, Sonic4 episode 2, hell even Ninty took Pikmin and moved it to Wii U

No.

I agree with Pavolink.  Twilight Princess is not even close to the best.

I am currently on a Zelda kick since Skyward Sword...less than impressed me, so I'm going backwards through the Zelda games and just finished Twilight Princess. Get back to me in about 2 weeks when I finish Wind Waker and I will probably be saying that that is the best Zelda game ever.

What has been a curse for the Wii will be a blessing for the Wii U. You must give in order to take. And it was a very smart move by Nintendo to cut down Wii support to the brim because if Wii U is flop, then Nintendo will definitely reap what they sow.

nintendo forever . . .

Wii won this gen. Theres no reason to pump out more games

The Wii won. Not sure the same can be said for Wii gamers...

Still, you're evidently one of those people that gets more pleasure from a system's sales than from its games. Sad times...



I'd give it more of a 3/10, but still it was definitly a pathetic year compared to prior years. Most of the games I did play were imports (Xenoblade, Zangeki, Rythm Heaven, etc). which is a bad sign. I think Kirby is actually the only new game released in America that I played. It's a great game, don't get me wrong, but it should not be the ONLY great game all year. Granted Zelda looks good too, but does look pretty underwhelming even compared to Twilight Princess. And Mario Sports and Just Dance 3? That's a big meh to say the least..

What Nintendo should have done this year, if they're resources were really stretched thin on Wii U and 3DS development, is used the opportunity to at least localize some games from Japan and Europe, to at least give the appearance of a strong lineup. Why not release Zangeki, Tales of Graces, Last Story, Pandora's Tower, Fatal Frame 4, etc? You would think the effort involved would be minimal and it would be a low risk, high reward move that would at least keep the US fans busy for awhile.  If games like Fagile Dreams and Sakura Wars can make it to these shores, why not those games? I do hear that Rythm Heaven and Xenoblade are making their way to the US which is encouraging to hear, but it might be too little too late.

While the fault lies on third parties to some extent, Nintendo by now should know that third parties want nothing to do with this console for whatever reason, so the responsibility lies on them to keep the userbase replenished with games, and this year they have failed to do that, especially with American releases.

Rythm Heaven wasnt released?? interesting. I thought it was coming out in winter, but looking at the sales in the US for the DS one, I can see why they might have passed. Zelda is good, you're missing out, but i like them all, so take what i say with a grain of salt. Tales of Graces is a Namco game, Ninty has no power over that. And it is being released stateside, just on PS3 and not WIi. Fatal Frame I agree. Sony or someone needs to TAKE that away from Ninty, cause they are doing nothing with it. At least on PS2 they were getting localized.

On a side note, i bet sales doesnt even own a Wii
