Wii users: Your top three games

Well, hey. We've got a thread for the other two big consoles why not the Wii as well?

Here's mine:

1. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
2. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
3. Metroid Prime 3

Honorable mention: Super Mario Galaxy, No More Heroes

The only Wii game I played that I actually enjoyed was Super Mario Galaxy. Mario Kart has horrible controls.

If we're including multiplatform games, I've spent a lot of great hours with Rock Band 2 and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga.

Have you tried the Wiimote/Nunchuk combo for Mario Kart? I found the controls with that setup almost perfect.

Re: Wii users: Your top three games

Naw, you just gotta get used to the drift and once you figure that out on manual, it's a breeze, but to each their own.

(The following will usually change over time)
#1 - Wii Sports Resort
#2 - Guitar Hero 5
#3 - Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

I would have said Zelda: Twilight Princess, if I had it for the Wii, however I bought it for the Gamecube at the time and then got the Wii later on. I still play it on the Wii, but I guess my version doesn't count.

Another mention would be Prince of Persia: Rival Swords

I played it on the Gamecube controller because using the Wiimote for it was absolute crap.

Re: Wii users: Your top three games

Mario Kart Wii has a ridiculous number of options. Wiimote only (crap, but the kids love it), wiimote + nunchuk (pretty good, but you do have to do some waggle), and then classic controller and gamecube. If you can't find a scheme you like maybe you just never liked Mario Kart in the first place!

Anyway my top 3 (in order):

Mario Kart Wii (online racing is too much fun)
Resident Evil 4
Punch Out!

Re: Wii users: Your top three games

I *LOVE* Mario Kart. We used to play the N64 and Gamecube and DS versions constantly. I love all three of those. It's just the Wii version I can't stand.

I've heard other people say that, but I don't get it. I use the remote only on Mario Kart and it works fine for me.

As for the thread topic, I only own two games(Well, 4 if you count the fit and sports), but I love playing old NES games on the virtual console.
