The ultimate Wii games of all time
The criteria for inclusion is that the game must have been released on the Nintendo Wii video-game console, and not on any other platforms. Also, a number of items are listed because they were exclusive to a certain region only - which is why games like Xenoblade Chronicles are on the list, even though they were never released in the North American or Australian markets.
The Wii was a major turning point for Nintendo, being the first console in over two decades which was targeted at a more mainstream audience than just people who were passionate about video games, and this is reflected in the software released on it.
Especially when you're playing with friends and family.
The most recent entry in the series after a prolonged time of no releases at all following the release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for GameCube and then later on Wii, Skyward Sword was also the longest time that fans had to wait for a new Legend of Zelda game in general, and was redesigned from the ground up with motion controls in mind.
One of the best games ever made, and one of the most popular games in general - it's unsurprising that this is on the list given just how much fun it is to play.
While at first not released as a Wii exclusive, this was eventually remade for the platform by Capcom and Nintendo, with a number of new features to take advantage of the motion controls that the Wii offered.
The last major release for GameCube from Nintendo, Twilight Princess was later ported to Wii in a number of regions.
While it wasn't the first Zelda game to be compatible with all Wiis, Twilight Princess was Nintendo's first attempt at bringing such a major title to the console - and while many prefer The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword because it is more recent, Twilight Princess is arguably still the better game.
As Nintendo's newest home console, the Wii U didn't get many new games to play - but there was one major exception.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a sequel to 2010's Donkey Kong Country Returns and the second game in the series since 2005's Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, and while it was eventually ported to the Nintendo Switch it remains one of the Wii U's best games.
The latest game in the long-running Kirby series, this is an action platformer which puts you in control of Kirby while he's made out of clay.
While at first it might seem like a sequel to 2005's Kirby: Canvas Curse for the Nintendo DS, in reality it's more like a spiritual successor - and it's also one of the Wii U's best.
The third game ever in the popular franchise, this was released for every major platform except the GameCube (which got its own version called Super Smash Bros.
While the Wii isn't the most powerful console in history, it's hard to deny that there are a couple of truly fantastic games available for it which you should all play at least once.
Even if you have already, this is an excellent opportunity to go back and find out just how good these titles are - so give them a try.
In fact, the Wii is Nintendo's most successful console in history - and with good reason!
