    What a horse shit list! For me only Mario Galaxy, NSMB and Wii Sports Resort deserve to be in there.

    Take a look at which Zelda related game is the best selling on the Wii.

    1. Wii Play
    2. Mario Kart Wii
    3. Wii Fit (with Wii Balance Board accessory)
    4. New Super Mario Bros. Wii
    5. Wii Sports Resort
    6. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    7. Super Mario Galaxy
    8. Wii Fit Plus (with Wii Balance Board accessory)
    9. Mario Party 8
    10. Link's Crossbow Training

    No shit sherlock?!
    as always been so, pretty logic that people buy Wii Play the most then [​IMG]

    and Hadrian, i think Mario Kart Wii deserves that top spot too, i enjoyed it a lot and still do thanks to the time trials and regular competition updates.

    Nah Mario Kart Wii is easily the worst of the series.

    Got to disagree with you, the online is still one of the Wii most played (and the best, not perfect, but the Wii never had the online capabilities and support the PS360 have). And like that other guy said, the time trials just keep me going, every now and then I boot it up and I try to beat a Staff trial, just to get that one new character.
    Tons of replayability there.

    In terms of the series, it's indeed not the best, and I expect Nintendo to make up for that in the next installments, but it's still super quality. Not to mention they added a whole new game play element flawlessly with the bikes and upped the players to 12. It deserves that spot IMHO, it got a lot of fun in it.

    The 3DS version looks like just another version. Nintendo are just making them now just so there is a version on each console.

    Only things on that list I own (and would still be the only things worth owning in my opinion) are 2, 6, and 7. Well the list shows you just how dominated the Wii is by first party games. For the record, most of those games are on the list of best selling games of all time.

    Well if Nintendo didn't fucking hype SSBB to have wifi without stability then it will be easily has been to late place! The wifi feature was just a teaser in Brawl then it was in Mario Kart Wii which is the only reason why it took a while for Mario Kart Wii to come out!

    If Nintendo want to do something right, time was their option. However, due to HYPE HYPE HYPE they release it before testing the wifi connectivity! Then that story mode...it was a nice touch but it wasn't memorable IMO.

    Wii Play is only first because people wanted the extra Wii Remote. Link's Crossbow Training is also only on the list because of the Wii Zapper. Wii Sports Resort had the Motion Plus.
    If they didn't have those accesories, they wouldn't have been anywhere on the list.

    NSMBW, Galaxy, Mario Kart and Brawl all deserve to be on the list. The others don't.

    I have every game on this list except wii fit plus. [​IMG] (does that make me a casual [​IMG] )
    But I have to agree most don't belong on here.

    That's a pretty sad list, and I still can't believe that the most bought game is Wii Party. Sure, it comes with a free Wii remote, but it SUCKS. Ugh.

    The other games are probably just there because of Nintendo's MASSIVE advertising, except for Mario Kart, SSBB, and NSMB Wii. :/

    There's only one conclusion that Nintendo can draw from this...

    The American populace wants more plastic!

    I wtf'd...


    Also, Wii Play kinda cheated it's way onto it. Wasn't Wii Play included?


    I guess Link's Crossbow Training makes a little more sense than Twilight Princess, as TP was on the GameCube as well.

    Mario Party 8? From the reviews I've read along with the opinions of others, it's supposedly inferior compared to the GC predecessors?

    I was always tempted to get it as I enjoyed.. Party 6 or 7 (forgot which), but have heard that this one is just terrible..

    It's predecessors on the GC (?)*

    Mario Parties 5, 6, and 7.
    How does 8 compare to the above three?

    Never played 3. Dx
