    It always struck me weird when people complained about the year of 2008 being a bad year of the Wii. It seems that the 2008 E3 conference rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. There were a lot of games that came out in 2008 worth playing.

    I would say the games down as far as Star Wars Force Unleashed were pretty good, maybe not AAA titles but certainly decent. After that some get a bit dodgy but there should be something there for almost anyone.

    I thought that 2008 was ok for games. It was a bit of a transitional year in terms of quality and I think that the lack of Nintendo titles at E3 made it seem worse along with the 360/PS3 getting big holiday titles where as the Wii got some good games but not real blockbusters.

    This year is already shaping up to be much better (especially from 3rd parties). April was one of the leanest months for Wii games but they still had Excitebots out, where as the 360/PS3 had very little, in fact IGN couldn't even name a game of the month on either of them.

    That's why I only said as far down as Force Unleashed. There are a few good games after that like Skate It but some of the others are a bit dodgy.

    Why would you care about it in the first place if you think it is a bad game. How about the good ones.

    Yeah, I agree with you Godwind...08' was not as bad as most people thought with the Wii. I blame it almost entirely on this new devision between Hardcore/Casual games. Back in the day, some of the best games featured furry little creatures, or blue-eyed golden haired homosexual looking little boys. But now a days if the game isn't about Steroid pumped ex-marines carrying shotguns as big as their entire body no one considers it hardcore. This is why games like De Blob (actually good) don't get the recognition they deserve.

    Let's get one thing straight. The list is subject to personal opinion. If I was to list games that were "good", it would be biased to what I understand of the game. I myself would call Soul Calibur 4 and Grand Theft Auto 4 a waste of money. More so than anything, people will easily disagree with me.

    Well obviously it would be your opinion. But I am still curious to see what games YOU consider good. Because unless you tell lies, I doubt there are many you actually think are good.

    Just to make you feel better, i'll start with the ones I think are good or atleast simpy have some kind of fun factor.

    There's my 360 list. Btw, whats up with you putting "(Also on PC/Wii/PS3)" yet you didn't do it on the Wii list?

    You just come on as extremely biased when you do things like that and if you are biased, whats the point in doing a comparison?

    Anyway yeah... that's my list... I could do the PS3 which has alot of games too, but the 360 is enough.

    Indeed, the OP was EXTREMELY loose with picking good titles. Only a handful of great games exist on the Wii, especially in comparison to other consoles that have AAA titles oozing out the wazoo. Multi-platform titles can't really be counted if you have both a Wii and a 360/PS3 since the heavy console version is explosively better, the only exception I've seen to this is Godfather I.

    The wii has droughts, and we are currently in one until the summer when The Conduit and such release. I'm currently using the wii as a gamecube for retro games I've been picking up lately, it hasn't gotten any true wii time in months.

    I love and hate the wii. It's a console with so much potential but developers are giving it the stink eye after Madworld (a mediocre game at best) didn't do well, claiming "there's no hardcore crowd." Promising titles are ages away and we as gamers have to WAIT for even a decent game to come out every now and then, whereas the owners of other consoles have a large number of choices.

    As the owner of a Wii/PS3, along with a mega computer, I'm getting my fill. But if I didn't have the finances for that and only had a Wii, I would sell it and get a console where I'm not hung out to dry until a third party developer actually puts effort into a title.

    This has turned into one of the most pointless threads i have ever seen.

    Group 1 likes the Wii and its games. They think the games that have come out for the Wii, in 08 or whatever, have been great and enjoy them a lot.

    Group 2 thinks group one needs there heads examined and thinks the Wii is trash and thinks the 360/PS3 are the best.

    Whats the point to this?

    Its all just opinions of what games people enjoy. When i hear someone call Mad World a "mediocre" game at best then i understand this is a guy that i prob don't share a lot in common with as far as gaming taste's go.

    So when people say 08 was a bad year for the Wii they just don't like the game that came out for that year. Some of us, me included, liked a lot of the games that came out that year.

    Some people dont like the Wii and some people dont like the 360/PS3. Let it go already.:mad2:

    It's not about fanboyism, it's about quality. An action game that lasts a few hours with a replay or two is nothing compared to the multiple 80+ hour adventures on PC/heavy consoles, or their games with excellent online components that can last for years.
    This is exactly what the problem is. Any decent game that comes out on the Wii is considered "Amazing" or even "A triple-A title" when they're not, it's a common case of big fish, little pond.

    Monster Hunter 3 is going to be one of those amazing adventures, so is FFCC (hopefully), but none of these games are out and the heavy consoles already have plenty of them.

    The Conduit will be setting the standard for FPSs on the Wii, in both gameplay and visuals. I welcome it and I can't wait to get my hands on it, and I truly hope it sells well to shut up those stink-eye giving developers who are probably on their fifth or sixth Unreal engine game. But until then, as I stated before, we're in a drought.

    You're just listing a shitload of games for each console, shovelware or not.

    I will provide my own list based on my opinions soon enough.

    As to be said, my list isn't trying to be geared to being biased. It is merely laziness. It took me awhile to collect data. Trying to correct the list was just not of my interest. I ripped out from a list I designed to be an obvious bias (to refute silly and naive arguments). I was simply too lazy to modify the list I provided. Also to say that I didn't provide information about multiplatform games is a lie. I denoted all exclusives for the Wii were denoted with an asterisk. All games without the Asterisk can be found on other platforms.

    If you want to check out the list I provided, feel free to check it out.
    http://www.giantbomb.com/wii/60-36/...-was-a-bad-year-for-the-wii/35-240582/?page=2

    Also, here is my list of games.
    Bold means I like it
    A red color means I am interested in playing it but don't own it
    Blue means I played it and disliked it
    Games that I don't highlight means I have no interest in it.

    Subject to your opinion dipshit.

    The Wii has 8 of these so called "AAA titles". 3 which are exclusive.
    The PS3 has 12 of these so called "AAA titles". 3 which are exclusive.
    The Xbox360 has 20 of these so called "AAA Titles". 5 which are exclusive.
    That isn't a large gap, now is it? Plus the Xbox360 has been around longer as well. It would be expected for it to have more exclusives.
    Also to say all multi platform games are vastly superior on the PS3/Xbox360 is subject to opinion. You will never catch me playing a shooter with dual analogs. I would rather have my stripped down version and have the Wii controls over what the other two companies offer.


    Some good games have been released on the Wii during this time year. Games such as Little King's Story, Guitar Hero: Metallica, New Play Control! Pikmin 2, Pro Evolution Soccer, Excitebots: Trick Racing, Madworld, Rune Factory Frontier, House of the Dead Overkill and plenty of other games.

    If course I played my Wii with retro games as well. With backwards compatiability with Gamecube games and the addition to the Virtual Console.

    All gaming platforms have incurred poor sales. Also, all consoles have large numbers of choices. The Wii has over 400 titles. The PS3 and Xbox360 have 600 titles, many which are shared between the two. That doesn't sound like variety of choice but simply choosing hardware with similar games.

    I am quite happy with my Wii. I do have a PC and a DS in addition to some older consoles hooked up. I don't have any reason to go out and sell my Wii.


    And yet you would participate in a conversation about it?

    When it becomes a console war debate. People coming in to tell us it is wrong to own a Wii and the idea of having it hooked up or making use of it is criminal as a user. To be beneath those who have a Xbox 360 and PS3 owners.

    This is something that goes unappreciated. People seem to neglect the value of others having opinions that differ from others.

    Not when people start flame baits and bullcrap like that. Gets annoying after awhile.

    That happens to be what you value in a game. A lot of people will disagree with you. Some people are even upset with the idea of Multiplayer online getting rid of Single Player gameplay. Some people will argue that multiplayer should be a simple addition instead of the core focused package.


    Again captain Dipshit, don't assume everyone elses opinions conform to your own.


    What makes you sure that they will be good? Neither are out yet and there has yet to been a verdict.

    As I said before, what will make sure they are actually good?
