Due to me giving possibly insufficient warning, and Stu not being online to vote, I am extending the deadline by three hours. Deadline for Wiik 1 is now 9 o'clock.

However, I am going to start Wiik 2 now, which will be hopefully a slightly easier genre to vote for: RPGs! Deadline will be in a week's time, at 6 p.m. Sunday 24th March. For real this time. Some possibly controversial decisions about what's in and what's out (copied from the OP):

In:
Super Paper Mario: Yes, after pondering this over I've come to the realisation that I remember SPM far more for its story, tasks and bosses than I do for its lacklustre platforming.
Muramasa: Wikipedia calls it an "action RPG". We don't have an "action" week, only an "adventure" one, so RPG it is!
Monster Hunter: By popular consensus.

Out:
Zelda games: They're adventure. Yes they are.
Okami: Because it's Zelda-ish, despite the secluded battle arenas.

Both:
Little King's Story: After much wrangling, it's been decided that the main vote will keep LKS in "strategy/other"; however, I'm also tallying the votes for if it's an RPG. Feel free to vote under both systems, and I'll let you know how the final tally would differ!

Discussion welcome, and get those votes in!

So something like Monster Hunter would be an 'adventure' game then? As wikipedia classes it an action adventure, even though it has stats & progression similar to an RPG.

I am open to convincing! The basic idea was to go along with Wikipedia's designations, but if people feel strongly about it then it can change. That applies to the above suggestions too.

An hour left for Week One!

Well, games that are labelled adventure tend to be story driven which MH isn't & I've alway seen it as an action rpg so going by the above rules it'd be in the rpg category.

Unless anyone strongly disagrees with me?

I agree with Jaster. I just view it as an RPG due to the amount of customization of equipment which allows you to take a certain 'role' when 'playing' the 'game'.

Unless anyone disagrees, then, it's an RPG. I'll update the OP and the post above.

Fifteen minutes until Week 1 finishes...

Week 1 is over!

Overall, 8 people voted this week. Thank you all of you, including the 4 who voted for one game (including me)! You're all great. Everyone else is poop (especially Stu DAMN YOU! ). My recommendation for those people: try to be less poop by voting this week. Without further ado:

Fifth place:
Spoiler:
 

Fourth place:
Spoiler:
 

Third place:
Spoiler:
 

Second place:
Spoiler:
 

Our Wiikly Winner:
Spoiler:
 

Honourable Mentions (i.e. everything anyone else voted for, in alphabetical order):
Spoiler:
 

Dishonourable Mentions (i.e. negative remarks people made with their votes, in alphabetical order):
Spoiler:
 

Again, thanks to everyone who voted. Please use this thread to discuss the rankings, or mourn the lack of F-Zero or Wave Race or 1080 on the Wii. in the meantime, vote in Week 2!

So Super Paper Mario is definitely an RPG for this vote then? That's good because I think that's the only Wii RPG I've played then... although I'll do a quick Google to see if I can unearth anything I've forgotten.

On the subject of not very good games, if you're making less than five votes, you can position them how you like. You don't need to give a game two points if you think it should only get the one.

I'd forgotten about Light Trax, and I didn't even know that Wii had Need For Speed Carbon. Disappointed that Excitebike didn't sneak in - very good update and a surprisingly tense online game.

Phillips gets a bonus "obscurity point" this week: he voted for two racers that nobody else even mentioned!

I would have said that AC:R was a puzzle game (having played the DS prequel) and that RE4 was shooty shooty bang bang. I played only the first five minutes of the latter, but the gun seemed to be pretty key! As always, happy to accept arguments to the contrary. (Basically, get someone else to agree with you and I'll probably make the change.)

MP3 is definitely more shooty than adventure-y, though. Great shame after MPs 1 & 2. Aww!

I'd definitely still describe MP3 as an action adventure game, no questions. Sure, it's got Space Marines™ and doesn't have the same feeling of isolation as the first two, but at its core it's still a Metroid Prime game. Shame they tried to oversaturate it with terrible terrible characters, but it's definitely action-adventure.

Resident Evil 4 falls into the niche category of survival horror. It's not a shooter in the same sense as Gears of War or a FPS, so it's difficult to define. Wouldn't call it an action-adventure though.

As Masofadas (and indeed Yahtzee) said, I wouldn't say Resi4 was "survival horror". Too much gunplay, not enough zombies or slow-burning scares.

Anyone want to help Jay challenge my MP3 ruling? (And vote for RPGs, natch - thanks to the four non-me people who have voted so far!)

Oh, and another question: given that I intend to include TP (a GC game with Wii controls) and Okami (a PS2 game with Wii controls), what are people's thoughts on the inclusion of the New Play Control! range?

*throws spanner into the works*

I wouldn't call things like MP, red steel & CoD shooters.....they're FPS games......shooters = geometry wars, sin & punishment and Metal slug anthology etc.

Glad to see Sonic and NFS Carbon do well. I totally forgot about Excitebike WiiWare, wish I'd included that as I really enjoyed it.

I wouldn't include NPC games, I think Okami and Zelda were special cases. I'd count Bully as one of those cases too.

Trying to work mine out at the moment. Here's another awkward one for you all! FFCC: My Life as a King? Where goes that.

Wikipedia describes it as a "city-building game". I'd say "other", for what it's worth!

Nah, I wouldn't include the NPC games either because of the fact that control scheme aside, they were fundamentally unchanged from Gamecube. Considering Okami hadn't been on a Nintendo console before its Wii release and that Wii TP was released alongside Cube TP, I think they're valid inclusions.
