Well, looks like Xenoblade is the popular winner, more than doubling second place.

Poor Monster Hunter, only 2 votes... :(

The problem is it's just so low effort.  On both the Wii U and the Wii, you can tell Capcom didn't invest the necessary resources to make Monster Hunter 3 a truly great console game.  Which is sad, the game has so much untapped western appeal potential because the only versions that get real love are handheld versions.  Even when consoles get a version, they never take advantage of he hardware.  I really hope MH comes to the Switch with real effort, but I'm not holding my breath to see it before late 2018 at the earliest.

NINTENDO

nintendo forever . . .

Mario Strikers Charged & Mario Sluggers were prob the two games I had the most fun playing with. Great multiplayer games.



"If new things are so great, where have they been the whole time?"

Sin and Punishment should get a mention.

I didn't feel like Tri on Wii was low effort at all. On Wii U yes, that version was just a 3DS game in HD, but the Wii game really pushed the system with detailed environments and lifelike monsters. Heck, I'd go so far as to call it one of the best looking games on Wii.

I definitely agree however that they should make a MH game from the ground up for Switch and put real effort into it.

I was thinking about writing something about the Wii being an underrated system despite selling over 100 million units LT. Sure, it didn't get the third party games like GTAIV and V, Red Dead, a few CoDs, Assassin's Creed, Borderlands, Dark Souls, etc. and there were a lot of shovel ware for the Wii (though it can be said for any console, especially those that sold really well). Nevertheless, it had a plethora of solid to great games.

Zack and Wiki, Trauma Center, RE4 Wii Edition, Wii Sports/Resort, Wii Fit, Punch Out! Wii, Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, Sin and Punishment Star Successor, Excite Truck, Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, Skyward Sword, Prime Trilogy, the Mario Galaxy games, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Return to Dreamland, No More Heroes (1 and 2), Red Steel 2, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, DKC Returns, Xenoblade Chronicles, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Metroid Other M (yes, I'll include it Metroid fans despite its flaws), The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, Boom Blox, Project Zero 2 Wii Edition and 4 (for those who got it from Japan), Little King's Story, The Conduit, Sonic Colors, Epic Mickey, House of the Dead Overkill, Monster Hunter Tri, Rhythm Heaven Fever, etc. Even some of the EA games were pretty good using the Wiimote.

Definitely an underrated system, it got heaps of awesome games that were overlooked just cos they weren't HD blockbusters.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii



I really came to appreciate more the Wii recently. I'm playing some games I never had the opportunity to play, and I realized that it has an excellent catalogue.



I voted for Skyward Sword. It is probably a toss up with Prime 3 though. I am still working my way through my Wii backlog, so I still have Xenoblade to play yet.

Resident Evil 4 is fantastic, as is Prime Trilogy, but I discount both of those games since they are ports. Brawl and Mario Kart were excellent, but I have a hard time calling those the best overall games. Best in their genres, sure. Donkey Kong Country Returns, NSMB Wii, and Muramasa were also great, but didn't quite have the same scope as Prime 3 and Skyward Sword. I prefer Skyward Sword to Twilight Princess. There are some really fantastic WiiWare titles as well like Fluidity, World of Goo, and LostWinds 2. Of course Wii Sports and Sports Resort are standouts too.

And since I have seen Zack and Wiki mentioned multiple times, I won't miss my chance to say this: The last four levels of that game suck. It was supposed to be a puzzle game. Not the shittiest action game ever made. Totally ruined the game for me. First 20 levels were good though.
