I was playing Pikmin 2 for the first time in ages today.
It reminded me how truly wonderful it is. God damn, I love the two Pikmin gamez. Absolute gems. Can’t wait for the third to be out in a year or two.
As I was playing it on Nintendo Wii (the new play control one, or whatever they called it), it made me think of what games have been released on the Wii that are actually decent. I came up with a top 10, because that’s as many really great Wii titles I could think of that have been released (all developed and/or published by Nintendo, haha). Nintendo may be sucking lately when it comes to third party software, but they are the best when it comes to first party software (in my opinion, of course).
Top 10 Nintendo Wii games:
1. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
2. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
3. Pikmin 2: New Play Control (Technically a Gamecube game, but whatever)
4. Super Mario Galaxy
5. Super Mario Galaxy 2
6. Mario Kart Wii
7. Xenoblade Chronicles
8. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
9. Super Paper Mario
10. Metroid: Other M
And of course The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be near the top of the list, if not #1 when it’s released.
This was fun, I might do a top 10 list for Xbox 360 once it’s nearing the end of its days. Wii was so easy though because all of their good games are developed/published by Nintendo themselves, whereas just about all of my top 360 games are third party titles (and there are so many decent titles).
