    Definitely another vote for LostWinds. This game is, bar none, the most relevant game on Wii, in my opinion. It's not just essential WiiWare, it's essential if you own a Wii, period. It ain't perfect, but to me, it really exemplifies what Wii is all about.

    +1 LostWinds

    It's way too early for a WiiWare essentials topic...
    When there's only a handful of games to choose from, of which even less are even worth playing, who's surprised that extremely average games like Dr. Mario or Toki Tori make it to the top of the list?
    Most people don't seem to know the meaning of essential...And thanks to people voting for every fucking game they found halfway decent, the essential games lists are becoming a waste of time for people who are looking for truly essential games [IMG]
    I enjoyed Dr. Mario, too, but I'm still reasonable enough to tell that it's not a game you may not miss under any circumstances...It's just fucking Dr. Mario, it's more of a gimmick than anything else, let alone an essential [IMG]

    So, my only vote so far goes to:
    Lost Winds
