Yeah, I agree. It's not like a conventional boxing game like the Fight Night games on Xbox or even Wii Sports boxing.

Thanks to the seven non-me people who have voted so far, stretching my Excel spreadsheet to breaking point. Fun fact: the RPG week is the only week so far where there have been more people voting than games voted for. For a given value of "fun". (The racing week had equal numbers.)

Aaarrrgh. Had I known Resident Evil 4 was in the shooters (somehow picked up that it was going in adventure games) and remembered that I'd played Sin & Punishment 2, my vote would have doubled in size! Duh!

Sports, is it? I'll see what I can do...

My votes will appear on Saturday, hopefully. I have four candidates so far.

Quite surprisingly, I found eight games that fit the sports and minigames category in my collection (or previously in it). Granted, three of them were football games and two were Wii Sports and Resort, but still...

I struggled to narrow it down to a top ten, let alone a top five. I had to leave out some absolute belters. Hardest category yet, in my opinion.

For me I'm jus struggling to remember what there is. Without the comfort of my collection I'll have to go with my half filled backloggery and I'm worried I'll forget an absolute belter.
Really should update my backloggery...

I've done a search on Metacritic a couple of times, to make sure that I hadn't forgotten anything.

For three of the four categories thus far, I've simply had to look at my collection. I have no idea how, but I've wound up with over ninety Wii games.

I was amazed to discover that I have over fifty of the things, but goodness me!

Plus a few more I've bought since that photo was taken a month ago, like Sonic & The Secret Rings and Rockstar Table Tennis.

EDIT: I've also got a handful out of those shots and a few unboxed games, like Red Steel 2 and the legendary Cooking Mama. If it's not exactly ninety, it's close.

Blimey, this really is a tough category. Going to have to do some shelf checking like Phillips (and if it's possible a flick through old NGamer issues) to jog my memory.

Thing is, I (Criminally) haven't played enough of this genre on Wii to be able to make the best of decisions but it *is* a combined vote so I might as well!

(and yes, I still need to play Let's Tap...)

Here's a bit of a controversial question, is Red Steel 2 a shooter? I mean you have a gun, but it's very much a swordplay game, I'd be more tempted to put it in adveture.

I got votes for RS2 in the shooters week, and given the original game, I did indeed count it as a shooter.

Two days to go, ish. The total number of games voted for goes up every week.

Yeah, I've only just gotten around to playing it and I just wondered, it's a fantastic game but it's just not a shooter so I still wouldn't have rated it as a shooter.

That was my main problem too, as well as picking my favourite from each series I'd chosen.

Who said Wii Sports was dull? You sad bastard.

Never got round to buying Mario Party 9, Strikers Charged received a dishonourable mention and WarioWare shall be receiving my vote in another category. No arguments about the top two though. Good work!

Wait... What other category? Microgames definitely fall under minigames: they're just smaller!

Wii Sports, fully deserving its win there. It exemplifies the early days of Wii for me. Whoever said it was dull needs looked at!

Fighting games... This may be a meagre week for me.
