    Seeing as we have a Wii Essentials game list that's dominated by single player games, combined with the fact the Wii contains few online multiplayer games (let alone games worth playing), it would be nice to see some highly suggested ones.

    Anyway, rules:
    - Like most "essentials" thread, you can give a +1 to any game you feel deserves it. Please no stupid "+2" or "+100000" or you'll vote will not count. Oh yeah, you can give a -1 if you're a spiteful bastard [​IMG]
    - Wii and WiiWare games only (obviously). Games that are WiiWare are marked with [WiiWare] next to them.
    - The number in parentheses is the amount of votes the game has
    - Please keep your game suggestions to online games. Maybe later we'll make a splitscreen thread. Also consider that same games may be good splitscreen but have terrible online, or visa versa. This is for online only.
    - This is NOT a place to exchange friend codes. Games with multiplayer threads have links to them. Use those. Otherwise start your own thread for a game.
    - If any games have a friend code thread that I missed or if it has a better thread, tell me.
    - I may not always be around to upkeep this thread. If anyone would like to help out by posting an updated list every few pages or so that would be great. Moderator help is always appreciated too.
    - Games with Wi-Fi MUST be person-to-person play. Games that feature online sharing features (Boom Blox Bash party, for example) will not be added.
    Side note: All games with a Wi-Fi thread of 3 or more pages of friend codes (not just bitching or spam) will automatically get +2. I've also added my own +1 votes.

    Added all aforementioned votes, except for Sonic Riders (thanks for pointing out only leaderboards)

    Also, these are my votes that I added before hand, so no one gets confused:

    +1 Mario Kart Wii
    +1 The Conduit
    +1 Overturn
    +1 Tetris Party
    +1 Onslaught

    And yes, you can give -1's if you want.

    Mario Strikers Charged +1

    Sorry, didn't read the rules bra.

    But it's probably the best game the Wii has to offer.

    Read the rules. No "+1000" or whatever. It's +1 or -1. I'll add the +1 for now, but no more.

    Added votes from previous 2 posts.

    I also added +1 to Quantum from me. The game is excellent, it's like Rainbox Six Vegas meets CoD4 meets James Bond. A very good hidden gem for the Wii.

    Added the above 2.

    Once a game gets 10+ votes, could this be stickied please?

    For me personally Mario Kart Wii and Medal of Honor Heroes 2 (I'm surprised no one chose this one yet).

    Wasn't a big fan of MoH: H2 myself (although I do own an actual, legit copy of the game), but the online layout was good. Anyway, both were added.

    1 more vote for MKW and we'll get our first essential, yay!

    EDIT: Nevermind the MKW thing, thanks to ConJ!

    All his were added too. Did you mean CoD5, CoD3, or both? I put you down for CoD5 for now.

    Can I come back and add more? RB2/GH5, once I've got the nerve to flail online..?

    Added yours, and yeah you can come back. You can always post more suggestions on the thread as long as you don't repeat them. I'm surprised no one posted Rock Band or Guitar Hero anyway, especially with 5 not having any friend codes.

    EDIT: I removed CoD3 because I realized it didn't have multiplayer (stupid me). Also, I gave a +1 to MoH: H2 from me. I wasn't a huge fan of the game itself, but the online was very well structured and better done than a lot of Wii FPS games.
