Top 10 Best Selling Wii Games of All TimeThe Nintendo Wii was an iconic staple throughout the mid 2000s and early 2010s. Everyone had a Wii it seemed like. The Wii was a very divisive console because it was marked 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.
Wii Sports what can I say? I mean 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 and there's some training modes to do as well. 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 and it introduced us to Matt. The "meme-able" Mii who's really a God how can you not like that.
Mario Kart Wii may have been a polarizing game people either hated this game or they loved it to death. I mean the custom track community basically treated this game as a religion. I mean 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 was and is still a blast to play.
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.
Regardless what your opinion is on the New Super Mario Bros series is this game was really fun. It's 2D Mario on a home console for the first time in like 20 years and had 4 player. They didn't change much from the DS game but it was still a blast in its heyday.
Similar to the Wii Sports Games Wii Play was a Minigame 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 still sold well.
Wii Fit was an interesting game series I never got into 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.
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.
I know some people don't like this game. The WiFi sucked like garbage and the graphics are just 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 Sonic and Snake being playable was awesome and really opened the door for who could make it.
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's a lot of unique level designs that haven't been seen before. It's not flawless though but this game is a masterpiece in its own right and there's a reason why fans have been clamoring for years for a Galaxy 3.
If you've played Mario Party this is very similar in a lot of ways. Kinda like a mashup of Mario Party 8 and 9. I actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Looking back I could see how a game like this would be perfect for families to play.
