Top 10 Best Selling Wii Games of All Time

The Nintendo Wii was an iconic staple throughout the mid-2000s and early 2010s. It seemed like everyone had a Wii.

The Wii was a very divisive console because it was marketed towards casual gamers. There were forced motion controls in a lot of instances, which were great when they worked and annoying and inconvenient when they didn't.

Regardless of your opinion on this console, there were some pretty memorable games that still hold up pretty well over a decade later.
The Top Ten
1 Wii Sports

Wii Sports, what can I say? Technically, every Wii came with it, so are its sales inflated? Yes, but for a "tech demo," it actually has a lot of things to do, from Golf to Baseball to Bowling to Tennis and of course Boxing. There are also some training modes. I don't come back to it often, but for the most part, it's pretty fun for what it was.

It introduced the Wii concept to so many people and really opened the door for what the system was capable of. It also introduced us to Matt, the "meme-able" Mii who's really a god. How can you not like that?

2 Mario Kart Wii

Mario Kart Wii may have been a polarizing game. People either hated this game or they loved it to death. The custom track community basically treated this game as a religion. This was one of the staples of the Wii era. Everyone had this game, and if you didn't, did you really own a Wii? This game was and is still a blast to play.

3 Wii Sports Resort

Wii Sports Resort is essentially Wii Sports with new sports to play and an actual locale to explore. Some of my favorites are Sword fighting, cycling, and flying around the island, which has to be the most fun of all. There's so much more to do, and it's pretty fun to replay the games and go for a high score.

4 New Super Mario Bros Wii

Regardless of what your opinion is on the New Super Mario Bros series, this game was really fun. It's 2D Mario on a home console for the first time in about 20 years and had four-player capability. They didn't change much from the DS game, but it was still a blast in its heyday.

5 Wii Play

Similar to the Wii Sports games, Wii Play was a mini-game collection involving random things like Find Mii and Pose Mii. The true highlights were tanks and billiards. Unfortunately, it's just not as memorable as some of the other "Wii" series of games were, but it still sold well.

6 Wii Fit

Wii Fit was an interesting game series. I never got into it, but looking back, it was definitely something that families could do. It was supposed to be a video game-exercise crossover, which was really interesting at the time. Did it actually help anyone be more fit? Probably not, but I could see how this game was fun regardless.

7 Wii Fit Plus

Wii Fit Plus is the sequel to Wii Fit, with more exercises and modes than the original game. I haven't actually played this game at all.

8 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

I know some people don't like this game. The WiFi was terrible and the graphics are dirty and ugly and haven't aged well, but there was a lot to do. The Subspace Emissary, in particular, was amazing, and there was a reason fans wanted that back, and we finally got our wish in Smash Ultimate. Also, having Sonic and Snake playable was awesome and really opened the door for future characters.

9 Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario Galaxy is among the best Mario games of all time. It's debatable which of the two games is better. I like the backstory of Rosalina in this game, and there are a lot of unique level designs that haven't been seen before. The game is not flawless, but it is a masterpiece in its own right, and there's a reason why fans have been clamoring for years for a Galaxy 3.

10 Wii Party

If you've played Mario Party, this is very similar in a lot of ways. It's kind of like a mashup of Mario Party 8 and 9. I actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Looking back, I can see how a game like this would be perfect for families to play.
