Now if only these games were any good. I mean, Mario is good...but the Wii series are all shovelware. Mariokart, Smash Brothers, New super Mario, all awesome.

Xbox is all halo and Gears of War, Kinect Adventures is Shovelware.

PS3 is distributed amongst the uncharted series, two Gran Turismo games, and all different stuff beyond that. Then there's Sports Champions, which is the same kind of shovelware that Kinect Adventures and the Wii games are.

Because you buy Nintendo consoles for Nintendo games not for their 3rd party support.

Explain to me how including "Wii" in the games title is misleading?

'Misleading' was a poor choice of words. I can't think of a better word right now.

When consumers see 'Wii' in the title, they think games without 'Wii' in the title aren't entirely Wii games. And so, they buy the games with 'Wii' in the title.  It's a (dirty) psychological trick.

All Wii games have "Wii" on the front cover. Any assumption of quality on the consumers part for the "Wii" title games stems from the good experiences they had with Wii Sports and Wii Fit... Resort and Fit Plus are sequels (well Fit Plus is more like a definitive edition). Mario Kart and Super Mario Bros were already very popular franchises, having Wii in the title is merely a good way to differentiate between prequels and sequels for games that are not based on story (and without simply using a number, which after so many years of titles does start to get dull)

Nintendo fanbase only buy first party because they dont have a choice.

Funny thing is the top 10 , omfg nintendo top 10 dont have a single game i would buy , tops 10 should be the mario galaxy games, metroid games, the last story, xenoblade and zelda.

???
SMG is number 9.

ok they have one game that i would buy in the top 10 and maibe smash brothers but camon , that top 10 shows why sales =/= quality.

I believe Wii Sports/WSR are very good and have enough quality for the genre they are. Dunno about the others, although MKWii is not the best MK.

Simple really, Nintendo's strategy. Nintendo's strategy involved creating/targeting games are the people who spend thousands of hours playing Bejeweled. Easy pick up and play games and marketed them appropriately. So it's not surprising games like Wii Sports, Resort, Mario Kart, New Super Mario Bros. Wii have high numbers. To contrast, the games that didn't target that audience didn't really sell more than Playstation exclusives.

I should make the list of "best ranked" on each console.  I gotta update them, 



I got it all, baby! 

PS4, Switch, WiiU, XBO, PC
Vita, 3DS, Android

Top 3 this generation: 
Bloodborne, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III

- Bigger install base
- The vast majority of that install base buys almost exclusively Nintendo stuff.
- Virtually no competition from third parties.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

I know why! Bundles.

Actually, the Wii isn't that much higher than the PS3 & 360. When you exclude any games with 'Wii' in the title, the list would be virtually identical.

I'm sure if the PS3 had games with 'PS3' in the title, they would sell as much as those Wii games. The difference is: Sony doesn't implement dirty tactics for sales like Nintendo does. Sony wants to earn success. That doesn't include putting the name of the console in a game's title to mislead consumers.

The only reason Wii games sell so much is because game have the word 'Wii' in their title.

What? What was that?

you were saying?

It's not out yet, so irrelevant. Plus, it does not say PS3 in the title :/
