    games like that carnival Wii game or Wii play and stuff. games wher the entire game is just minigames. Wii Sports and Sports Resort are also shovelware.
    though i don't understand where the term shovelware came from.

    No, Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort are not shovelware. They are very well made, very polished and fun.

    Shovelware are games made fast and cheap and with very poor quality. It doesn't matter if they're mini-game collections or not (although since mini games can be cranked out fast, many shovelware games are minigame collections).

    They get dumped onto retail shelves by the masses - think of a big pile of crappy games and someone is shoveling them onto the store shelves. Much like someone shoveling a big pile of manure from an animal pen.

    as i said earlier, just cause it may be good doesn't mean it isn't shovelware.
