On Nintendo Enthusiast we rarely make Top 10 lists. If we’re going to make a list it usually has to be a significant number of something, like our 120+ Upcoming Wii U Indie Games list or 100 N64 Games We Remember Fondly. This time we’re looking at the most recent generation before current– The Wii Era. Not so long ago, Nintendo was on top in this eight generation long game of King of the Roost. The Wii was selling millions each year, and while third party support wasn’t exceptional, the Wii still managed to build up an impressive library of unique titles.

Our very own Giancarlo Bellotto has played an unhealthy amount of these games and is in fact able to give his personal opinion on over 100 games on the Wii. He split up this feature into eight parts, covering a different genre in each part. You can find the full list of games below and read his proper descriptions and opinion on each of them in the respective articles. If you’re looking for a good Wii game to play, we’re sure you’ll find something to enjoy in these lists.
