Whilst I can't deny it was important it's nowhere near one of the best games. I wouldn't say it was an essential addition to every collection. If I had to pay for it I'd be dissapointed if I paid any more than a tenner. It was bettered by its sequel and with all the great games there are I don't think it belongs, just thinking of the poor games that will miss out on a place up high because of this makes me sad Aww!

Wii Sports! Great game, although one I haven't played in a good long while. I can only echo what others have already said - it opened up gaming to a huge group of people and, arguably, gave the Wii the success it achieved.

I'm with andyman on this one, its already ridiculous that it topped games like MP3/trilogy & monster hunter Tri ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!!! it didn't even ente my mind at all when making my top ten.

Poor show on the folks who voted for it.

I'm surprised by all the Wii Sports hate. I think it's been treated by the brush of everything that came after it- the Wii party, the carnival games and the Cammy Dunaway. When we first saw Wii Sports, and when we first played it, it was pure Nintendo magic.

I don't hate it, but I wouldn't put it up with the top ten. It was magical at the time, but it's long since been surpassed - by its own sequel, apart from anything else.

Although I wish you wouldn't remind me about Cammie Dunnaway. No

I prefer Wii Party to Wii Sports, it wasn't quite Mario Party but the minigames and most of the maps are pretty good.

Buskalilly with some sense talk here. Agreeing that it's probably the 'best' Wii game (as a demonstration of what they Wii could do and as an example of the sort of social gaming that most of us enjoyed with our Wii), and that - like treesmurf too - we all remember our first time playing it. It's pure nostalgia for me.

Yeah, I'd agree with that. There's nothing else on the system that better represents what a "Wii game" is, and did so successfully to boot.

There's no doubts it's a fun game & everyone has their great memories playing it with friends & family but top ten? No.

As for seventh place, I'm the guy who has no memories of playing it, as I didn't: I picked it up for £4 and didn't touch it. Looks good, mind.

It's a fair entry, a lovely game and the combat didn't bother me much, it was drawing circles. I am unable to draw circles on the DS (see my inability to play Pokemon Ranger) let alone with shaky hand pointer controls. I nearly managed to finish it on the PS3 due to being able to draw circles with an analogue stick but then Jess' PS3 did a memory wipe and my file was on there Duh!

I don't remember if I voted for this but I do remember buying and living it. Nice little game, solid entry.

Okami is a pretty sweet game. During the adventure week vote I described it as 'complete', and I stand by that - it had a very full world, with lots of stuff going on. I also felt that the combat was very repetitive and the way the pointer controls registered stank ("That was a straight [expletive deleted] line, you stupid game!" and similar rang out from my sofa on many occasions). It's my second most played Wii game (behind Twilight Princess, list fans!).

Played it on PS2 - never played it on Wii - so I've no idea if the controls/anything added to the game improve/take away from the Wii version. Deserved top 10, anyway.

Expected that to place higher... are we in for some shock high entries?

Also, cracking spiel by Chris, he makes me doubt my own placing of the original SMG over the second.

SMG2 was my #1 vote - I recognise the split between the game and its predecessor, discussed a few times in this very forum (well, mostly its spiritual predecessor!). It'll be interesting to see if SMG places higher... anyway, another truly fine game. We were blessed with the Wii, weren't we? Especially if SMG2 isn't even a top five game! Shocked

Huge thanks to Chris for his contribution to our forum! :hug:

Great contribution, Chris. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm just finishing up hoovering the bath. Grin

No problems with Okami making the list. It was a quality production, albeit one that was a bit too fussy and long-winded for my liking.

Dying to know what the top five are, now. There's no way Super Mario Galaxy isn't in there. It would take a form full of willy-heads to keep it out of the top five, wouldn't it? I'm also intrigued to note that several key games may have stolen Galaxy 2's thunder. Only on a Nintendo platform could such a game rank sixth. Am I right?

Ye can't argue with sixth spot even though I thought the first was the better, but maybe I'm all nostalgic & factoring in how different it was to any other Mario game before it.
