N-Europe's Top 10 (Voting over, check first post for results)

Recommended Posts

Oh boy, this is the first console with TWO of my top 5 games of all time on it. It is therefore a no brainer that both of these go on here.

 

Okami

Xenoblade Chronicles

Donkey Kong Country Returns

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Super Mario Galaxy 2

This is a curious one. I have mixed feelings about a lot of the Wii's library.

  • Donkey Kong Country Returns
  • De Blob
  • Little King's Story
  • Excite Truck
  • Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars

I own a couple of Wii games I haven't actually played... I hope I don't eventually regret ignoring them.

Here's my picks!

  • 428 Shibuya Scramble (I cannot recommend this enough, it's on PC too. If you like VNs with really cool mechanics, this will be your go-to for the Wii. I hope someone will/has tried this and it isn't just me :p )
  • Kirby's Epic Yarn
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl
  • Xenoblade Chronicles
  • No More Heroes

I had like 4 games on my initial list before they got replaced by games I remembered going down the list of Wii games. Excuse me while I go cry in the corner.

I've also edited the opening post with the Top 10 Gamecube Games article.

I know you have that rule that prevents you posting games you aren't nominating, but I'm curious now. Mind sending me a PM? I already voted and won't be changing my list so it's not cheating, right?

Subject to change, since I haven't played the Wii in years:

  • Xenoblade Chronicles
  • Trauma Team
  • Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles
  • Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
  • Wii Sports (This is the big placeholder game that'll probably get changed.)

Despite my large catalogue of games I’ve struggled a little to identify the best ones. Many good, but in my opinion there weren’t a lot that I found truly great, especially in comparison to other consoles. Anyway, some nominations:

Little King’s Story

Pandora’s Tower

Super Mario Galaxy 2

World of Goo

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure

Been a while since I posted on here, but this is one list I feel the need to add some input to, as the Wii got so unfairly labelled as a casual and/or shovelware machine when there are many overlooked gems on there! I nominate the following, deliberately avoiding some of the more obvious games that will no doubt receive enough nominations anyway:

Xenoblade Chronicles
Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure
Muramasa: The Demon Blade
Pandora's Tower
A Shadow's Tale

Nintendo Wii games? Easy... here wii go... ;)

Here are my picks...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
  • Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl
  • Kirby's Epic Yarn
There may be a huge library on the Wii but ultimately, for me, I'd always end up choosing those same retail games which I enjoyed playing the most. :D

Look out for the N-E Top Ten DS Games coming soon to the main site. :peace:

  • You must choose 3 games and order them from your favourite to least favourite.
  • It'd be great if you could explain why you chose a game in the PM. I can then use these in the article that will go up on the N-Europe front page.
  • I will abstain from these votes and act as a tiebreaker. If two games tie, I'll decide which game comes out on top.

Voting closes on the 20th of July

Apologies for missing out, but I feel almost glad I didn't if Other M got on the shortlist. I would've been tainted.

Wow! Punchout!! didn’t make it!!!

 

That’s nuts! Shame on you all (and shame on me for not fitting it into my own top 5; as much as I wanted to).

 

Honestly shocked that it didn’t make the shortlist (Not that it’s the only surprise casualty... Poor Wii Sports Resort... Poor NSMBU Wii... Poor Kirby’s Return to Dreamland/Adventure Wii! That one hurts me!).

 

Still, we ended up with some good’uns anyway (glad to see Metroid Other M, Pandora’s Tower, Skyward Sword and Trauma Team getting some well due respect; far too often they’re either forgotten or unappreciated; so good on you guys!)

Damn straight. You haven't lived until you've gone through Other M on hard mode.

No love for Excitebike World Rally? Hopefully it ends up on the Switch Online Subscription, it'd be a good fit.

I played Other M. I missed one item and left it at 99% completion.

 

Never touched it again.

Man, that is a disappointing shortlist. No Excite Truck, or De Blob, or Tatsunoko vs Capcom! Not even Radiant Dawn or House of the Dead: Overkill. The two titles I own but haven't played yet are Sonic Colours and Wario Land Shake It... and those didn't make it either!

Luckily, I can still put a Top 3 together, but I'm shocked at how little this shortlist agrees with me.
