Wasnít there a Wii game in Japan that came with a peripheral thatís a pair of briefs with a slot for the Wii Remote in the center, and then it was a game about urinating and aiming your stream? Called Super Pee-Pee Bros.? Did I dream that? Why doesnít anyone talk about that when theyíre talking about weird unlocalized games? That could have made this list! :p

Part three of my 25 favourite Wii games list!


#15! The Last Story



The combat in this game is really a lot of fun. There are tons of great boss fights. And I just enjoy running around in the gameís world. The actual story and characters of The Last Story were at first clichťd and merely serviceable to the game itself, but ultimately I found myself totally endeared to them. Anyway, I just wrote a post all about this game, so check it out. The Last Story is an extremely well-paced 20+ hours of action-RPG greatness.


#14. Super Paper Mario



Super Paper Mario was one of the first big games to get excited for, after enthusiasm for the launch titles finally started to die down. And my, was it ever delightful! Super Paper Mario was an incredibly fun game. The 2D-3D mechanic allowed for some very inventive and clever game design. All the ďPixlsĒ and alternate characters were fun to use. And the light-RPG elements added a lot to the game. It did away with the turn-based combat that the series always had prior and since though, but I loved that about it Ė I much prefer the real-time combat of this instalment. Oh, and the writing is so funny and charming in this game! This is definitely my favourite Mario game, in terms of writing. And in general, this is one of my very favourite Mario spin-off titles.


#13. Wii Sports



How is it that Wii Sports did 1:1 motion so well, and no game since really managed until the Wii motion+? Itís a mystery to me. Yes, some people see Wii Sports as little more than pack-in Ė a tech demo Ė displaying tech thatís potential was never really realised (at least not until motion+, and then stillÖ), and which was indicative of a new direction for Nintendo, away from satisfying its core consumers. And I can understand their point, but I certainly donít see Wii Sports as a tech demo, and Iíd be lying if I said I didnít love the hell out of it, regardless of any negative implications for gaming as a whole. I love all the included sports Ė tennis and golf in particular. Theyíre so much fun. I played a ridiculous amount of this game. I played to get all the medals, I played to get a perfect score on my ďdaily fitness testĒ (doing that every day for months), and of course, I played it multiplayer with friends and family. No video game experience with my parents has been so successful or enjoyable. Wii Sports is an incredibly simple and accessible game, but thatís not what makes it great. What makes it great is how bloody satisfying the mechanics are, and how much damn incentive there is to return to it.


#12. Letís Catch



If youíre not aware of this game, you probably think Iím crazy for putting it so high. Okay, even if you are aware of it, you may still think Iím pretty crazy. This is a game where you play catch in the park with strangers. You swing the Wii remote to throw. And you pinch A+B to catch. Thatís it. It looks like shovelware, designed to capitalize on the success of Wii Sports, in offering a new (and incredibly insipid) sport for those who want more. It is not. This, I decided after playing it, was my favourite downloadable game Iíd yet played (Journey on PSN has since taken that title though). Not only did Yuji Naka, creator of Sonic, somehow make this game fun, he made it an incredibly memorable and special experience. You see, as you play catch with the strangers, they start to open up to you and tell you their problems, and theyíre absurdly endearing. And then the gameplay and music is the most relaxing of any videogame. Also, youíre being spied on by aliens. I donít want to give any more away. But if you still arenít convinced, read Jonathan Holmesí review, in which he compares the game to Alfred Hitchcockís The Birds. Itís one of my favourite reviews ever.


#11. Super Mario Galaxy



I said already in this feature that Super Mario Galaxy is the most beautiful, polished, and innovate platformer of this console generation. I donít think Iím alone in thinking that; I think thatís a pretty widespread consensus. On metacritic itís the highest rated Wii game, and the second highest rated game of all games, just below GTAIV. But donít take their word for it Ė take mine! Itís a must-play game. Obviously. Ya idiot! The different gravity effects in the game make just jumping around incredibly entertaining. The thing is polished almost to a fault. Itís got the slickest graphics and presentation of just about any Wii game. And the new galaxies continue throughout to surprise and delight with superb level design. Super Mario Galaxy 2 isnít any less great, it just lacked the Ďwowí factor I got playing the original for the first time. Play both.



Does anybody know what the significance of the tiger in The Last Story was? I didn't understand that. Anyway, stay tuned. Next five. In time.
