Are you suggesting that only Nazis would vote for Skyward Sword? Nah nah!

Astounded that I haven't voted for a single game that's appeared thus far. Laughing

I started Skyward Sword shortly after launch, and I still haven't bothered to finish it. Strange that I wished for a motion controlled Zelda for the whole of the Wii generation, went mad over press releases, and then greeted the final product with motion control apathy. Huh.

I wanted to post the image of Hitler's head in a jar from the Duff Brewery in The Simpsons here, but Google Images let me down.

In the same vein that only idiot presidents would vote for MHTri, yes. Wink

Skyward Sword was my number 1.

I think I can work it out from here. My predictions:

Spoiler:
 

We shall see. This hasn't been far off of the top ten I was predicting - I might not have expected Okami or Wii Sports to be there, possibly Xenoblade or DKCR instead.

Hmm, I reckon you're spot on with your top 2 predications, but I hope your third one isn't right. Doesn't feel like a top 3 Wii game to me.

It does seem a bit high, but I think it's been carried there by (likely) featuring in most folk's lists. I can't imagine it not being in the list somehow. Could be completely wrong, of course. Maybe something like Wii Sports Resort has sprung a surprise.

Surely Donkey Kong Country Returns will place over Mario Kart Wii?

Having said that, a couple of the ranks so far have surprised me.

I'll be dissapointed if Mario Kart Places, whilst good I wouldn't say it was top 10 worthy, I'd be devastated if it came above Galaxy or Twilight Princess though.

The end is nigh. Brace yourselves, ladies and gentlemen: the three finest games on the Wii, as chosen by the GNamer Forum (well 13 people in it anyway), lie beneath these spoilers. Open each one with the care it deserves...

Third place

Second place

A great top 3 but I personally don't get all the fuss over Twilight princess it was a great Zelda game there is no doubt about that but I have a secret to tell.....it's the only Zelda game I've traded in & no I don't regret it.

Top job balla, it was great checking this thread everyday & seeing the games revealed then all the opinions that followed, I assume you're going to update the OP with the full top ten list?

I think that's a fantastic top 3, might even be the order I put it in personally.
As for Zelda it's the only one I've played more than once (three times) I've played LttP an extra half though as I couldn't beat it when I was young.

Cracking finish to a cracking poll, Balla! A pat on the back for putting so much effort in, that man. Grin

A deserving top three, and I'm surprised-but-not-surprised (given the selected ten) that Donkey Kong Country Returns didn't place at all. Where would it have ranked?

Let me clear that up for you, and some other odds and ends...

Lower-Ranked Games (none of which got a first place vote)

My Top Ten

Final Words

I'm well into wittering territory now, but I just wanted to quickly that I've had far more fun than I should have, doing this. I can blame part of that on loving numbers, and developing a rather-too-close relationship with Excel's conditional formatting. Another part is NGamer's sense of humour: the "celebrity guests" can definitely be attributed to Geoffrey Chaucer, Sir Alan Sugar, Charlton Heston and many others "appearing" in the magazine, not to mention "Iwata Asks". Yet another part is pure ego-stroking, although whether a project on an online forum is any reason to stroke my ego is up for debate. Regardless, it's been a blast and I wouldn't have done it anywhere else on the 'Net.

The legacy of this is pretty straightforward: one person has asked to do a voting thread for the DS. I don't know when he'd like to start (the genres may need reshuffling), but I'll be among the electorate, racking my brains in an attempt to think of something "funny" to get into the comments... for a game that then won't place. So thanks to that person, and to the other person who offered to do the same!

I'll leave this stickied for a week; then it can fall down the pages as Nintendo pulls their fingers out and Wii U games threads take over. We can hope, anyway.

Play me off, Mario!

Cracking thread Balladeer - it's been a highlight of the forum for the past few months. Smile

As for the top 3, I didn't expect Xenoblades, but at least it's not MKWii. I guess I need to play it now! My top 2 match the forum's top 2, so I'm claiming the title of Nostradamus, thanks.

Agreed! Roll-on the DS poll thread. And no worries about the Twitter promo-ing! It was a good way to count down to 1800. Smile

Thanks for giving us the breakdown of the also-rans, too; in the end, a whopping eight of my ten votes turned out to be also-rans. Shocked

Yeah! more of these! Great job guys.

(I've just realised - I'm not really a handheld person, and don't know if I can think of 10 DS games period. For older consoles can we just do a top ten? And also sorry for the really long vote comments. And sorry for writing Ze;da.)

Thanks for that, balla. Agood, fun read (at least for the last week when I actually got involved)

Sensible top 3. I thought the final special guest was saying "and lol", which would have been very different.

Balladeer: you absolutely did do the core idea justice. All in all, I can say that this is the best thread I've seen on NGamer or GNamer since I started using the former almost five years ago. I'm convinced nobody associated with this forum could have made a better job of this than you did. Thanks.

Can't believe Mario Kart Wii did so badly! It's not my favourite, but I still couldn't imagine it not being in the top ten. Never played Xenoblade, had Twilight Princess several times without playing it, Galaxy is a classic.

Mario Kart Wii is another that completely slipped my mind, would have voted for it otherwise, Xenoblade was one I didn't expect either but only because I've not played it yet.
