    According to wii.nintendolife, seems like Wii games are outselling the 360 games-so it might go


    • God
    • Church (to some people)
    • Wii
    • Satan, Devil, Lord of Darkness or Lucifer.


    Heres the link gamasutra.com

    I like that
    ain't that the truth, right on.

    Considering how many more Wii consoles have sold than the 360, that's no surprise.

    Yeah now how many of those games were absolute ****? The majority of them. Yet I have played only a few 360 games that I haven't been satisfied with.

    Suprisingly it is probably pretty low. 1st party games would account for a very large percentage (over 70 million) and they are usually good quality. Good 3rd party games would probably be around 30-50 million too. So that would leave about 50-60 million for the less desirable titles (mini games compilations like Carnival Games and general shovelware). I'd roughly equate it to being 2 thirds of the Wii games sold being decent titles.

    I'd say that the amount of titles that I've been less than impressed with is about equal for the 360 and Wii, although I don't own as many 360 games so if I put a percentage on it then the 360 would actually be higher (maybe say 5 out of 30 Wii games which would be 15% and 3 out of 10 Xbox 360 games which would be 30%). Most of the games I buy I know that I will like and so they don't disappoint me.

    No, there aren't very many good 3rd party titles either.

    I could list off a load of games that would total up to the kind of figures I mentioned, so it could just be that you don't know what is actually available.

    I find plenty of 3rd party games that are good and there are some 3rd party titles that are amongst my favorite Wii games.

    I wouldn't go that far. I've played plenty of solid third party titles in the last 2 or so years that I've had my Wii. And it is a shame because the solid third party games don't sell as well as they should due to several factors (lack of advertising etc.). Not everyone will read about upcoming games on forums or various gaming sites. People need commercials, that sort of deal.

    In the end though, sales be it units or games really doesn't matter to us. It's about people playing what they like to play and enjoying it for their own reasons. Just another thing for Nintendo to add to their list (and pockets) but who cares?

    It's all subjective, really. I think most of us know the types of games that are popular on the Wii. If you are looking for a different type of game, buy the system approriate to your desires.
