It was easy to forget this thread with so few good Wii games coming out over the last year, so don't beat yourself up about it Smeags..
Indeed. Really only Zelda and XenoBlade were the big standouts... but there were a couple of smaller titles that definitely qualified as quality games. But at the end of the day, I wasn't surprised that I finished a year's worth of updates in only two-ish hours.
Although the retial list of games isn't too bad, the WiiWare support in 2011 (at least for quality titles) was pathetic. But that's why we have the eShop now.
