Dustin counts down ten Wii games you should have been playing!

Wii has a huge catalog of great games that many have experienced and praised, but like every system, there are quite a few good titles that seemingly flew under the radar. There have been similar lists made in the past, so I’m going to try and choose some games that don’t typically appear– but still belong– on these types of lists. An overlooked, overlooked Wii games list perhaps? The games will range from titles that didn’t sell well enough, weren’t spoken about hardly enough, and ones that simply didn’t get the credit they deserved. I hope you enjoy the list, and perhaps see something you would like to check out in the future!

    Great list! Almost makes me want to give GoldenEye another try. (I’m useless at cover shooters, but love stealth gameplay. My relationship with that particular game is complicated. :^)

    I’d like to throw out a few other under-appreciated gems:
    – Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers
    – NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams
    – Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz
    – Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure

    None of those are for everybody (as one would expect from overlooked games), but all are great in their own right. I was tempted to list Sonic and the Secret Rings too, though I’m not sure it was “overlooked” so much as some of us loved it while others can’t be happy no matter what Sonic does. (see: Lost World reviews ;^)

    At least we can still play these on Wii U and I might look at a few of these games but some (IE Silent Hill and Dead Space) they’re just not for me

    Oh, this is just a great list, really loving every single choice. I would throw A Boy and His Blob, de Blob 1 & 2, Zach & Wiki, and Spyborgs on this list, too… along with a few others. Can we just say Wii’s library in general was overlooked?

    Little King’s Story is another one which really didn’t get enough appreciation.
