Since WiiU is coming out it seems right time to list top Wii games. However instead of traditional here are so many games you should play I decided to do top 5 per a specific category. Not to be taken too seriously. Games will only be in one list. I feel it’s unfair to include games in multiple lists. These are all games I have played. Save the last list.
Top 5 Best Describes Wii Games
Games that best show us what Wii is about.
5. Dragon Quest Swords
A spin off of a well known series that uses motion controls.
4. Pandora’s Tower
A JRPG that will be easily over looked for it’s niche elements.
3. Another Code R
A game that tries to appeal to everyone.
2. Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword
A game from a long running Nintendo series but with motion controls.
1. Wii Sports
A game that uses motion controls, has multiplayer and can appeal to lots of different types of gamers. It’s also made by Nintendo. This game was also available with console and was availble on launch day. It was the game that really got everyone into Wii.
Top 5 Most Traditional Games
Games that have remained true to their routes whether that be series or genre.
5. Harvest Moon Animal Parade
Was torn between this and another title on Wii. This one won out because it is 2nd game on Wii. Although it does add the circus element.
4. The Last Story
Save the battle system and few other elements this game is your traditional JRPG.
3. Final Fantasy Fables Chocobo’s Dungeon
Your dungeon crawling game although starring potentially one of the worlds most famous gaming mascots.
2. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn
I can’t tell what’s different between this and other strategy games. I could be wrong. I never really got fully into the game.
1. Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess
A tribute to all the previous Zelda games. So many elements appeared in this game had already appeared in some form in earlier games in the series. I couldn’t think of another game that deserves reward for most traditional then this game. Not that I find anything wrong with traditional games.
Top 5 Most I Don’t Know What I am Playing Games
Games that either have genre on their own, just plain weird or no idea what I am doing.
5. Zack and Wiki
I know it’s a point and click game and as such it’s really confusing at times.
4. Rayman Raving Rabids
One of the craziest party games ever played. Not that I played loads mind you.
3. Wario Ware Smooth Moves
Same as above but weirder.
2. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Crystal Bearers
It’s not a Final Fantasy game nor is it a Crystal Chronicles game no matter how you look at it. The only thing it shares with those 2 is names. Still a fun game though.
1. Little King’s Story
A mishmash of genres that works really well even if can’t think of a specific genre to call it. Weirdest moments come from the rival King battles and also the whole final part of the game is just crazy. At some points it will feel like a whole other experience.
Top 5 Relaxing Games
No need to rush. Just take your time.
5. Nights Journey into Dreams
I find the music alongside the flying levels very calming for some reason. Except some of the Boss fights.
4. Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquillity
You can watch cute animals run around your farm or maybe do some nice fishing. Farm work can be stressful at times though.
3. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles My Life as a King
Build but a city whenever you want to and watch your townsfolk roam around meanwhile heroes run off to dungeons.
2. Animal Crossing Let’s got to the City
This is one of the few games that won’t insult you for doing nothing. That’s how relaxing it is.
1. Endless Ocean
Nothing more relaxing then watching fish. Except maybe while listening to your fave chill out song with a dolphin companion. You can just sit and watch fish for ages. Maybe do a bit of slow paced exploring where you will find new fish. Not to mention the animals and birds that visit on your boat for a pet.
Top 5 Crazy Action Games
Games for those wanting to chase after the action.
Originally I was not going to add this game but couldn’t think of another game I have played but not mentioned that fits.
4. Tales of Symphonia Dawn of New World
A nice action based battle system that during boss fights can get hectic.
3. Tatsunoko vs Capcom
A solid fighting game although weird VS choice. Still good fun.
2. Muramasa Demon Blade
The best action game on Wii I have played. Lovely visuals and very strong Japanese theme.
1. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Have high items then add in four players you get craziest battle ever. It’s hard to know how your fighting save one in front of you. With Pokemon flying all over and crazy assist not to mention the mad rush to pull of the final smash. What part of this game isn’t crazy action?
Top 5 “Biggest” Games
Big in one way or another.
5. Sakura Wars So Long My Love
Big stage shows and mecha.
4. Super Mario Galaxy
It’s a Super Mario game where you fly around in space.
3. Rune Factory Frontier
Huge list of potential and some needed to do for this game.
2. Monster Hunter Tri
It has lots of huge monsters. Some of them are so big need a ship to take them down.
1. Xenoblade Chronicles
The game has a huge world to explore and huge monsters to defeat and a huge list of side quests and you will need a huge amount of spare time to do it all. There was no other game that could be 1st place. No other games provides such a huge experience.
Top 5 Most Waited for European Release Games
Games not yet released in Europe. Maybe WiiU download?
5. Earth Seeker
Looks most interesting but no word on localisation.
4. Rodea the Sky Soldier
No word on any release at all.
3. Arc Rise Phantasia
Got released in America but confirmed it won’t be releasing in Europe.
2. Tales of Graces
Been waiting for game’s release since first announcement as a Wii exclusive.
1. Rune Factory Oceans
Released as Wii+Ps3 game in Japan and America. Unfortunately no Wii release in Europe. The other Rune Factory games have been exclusive to Nintendo consoles. It seems a really odd choice for it to be PS3 only. An understandable one though. With WiiU releasing interest in Wii and it’s games have decreased.
