    Is Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom a Wii Exclusive?

  6. Colin GZ Network Plus on April 17, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    The best Mario Kart! The first one I started with

  7. Colin GZ Network Plus on April 17, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Your take on Pikmin/Pikmin2 on this list is the exact opposite of your opinion on the “top GameCube games of all time”

  10. Nock on April 18, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Why are you changing your natural voice? To sound like a radio mod?

  12. Solino_Oruki on April 18, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Damn. I think I agree with every single entry, and even their placement in the ranking. This never happens 😂 yeah I also love Punch-Out! and ExiteBike and Wario Land. But I’d put those exactly at the 22nd to 25th spots 😂

  13. AkAkAkNeil on April 18, 2021 at 12:04 am

    great list! Thanks, am… only days away from plugging in my first Wii!

  14. Colin GZ Network Plus on April 18, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Where is Mario Strikers charged?

  15. 丹ㄥ† モメ on April 18, 2021 at 12:05 am

    You listening BBC on your Wii right now

  16. Randy Routley on April 18, 2021 at 12:06 am

    RE4 is your favourite game period? I thought BoTW was your favourite game according to the 1 hour of praising botw. They’re both great, but pick one man 🙂

  17. xXBDawkinsXx on April 18, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Brawl and Mario Kart Wii not making the top 5 is wild

  18. Matt Owens on April 18, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Dokkapan Kingdom. Pay the tax and get the game. Its an amazing party game. Like mario party and a jrpg had a baby

  19. Isaac Barrett-lennard on April 18, 2021 at 12:12 am

    5:06 this was my entire childhood

  20. Darren Goldsmith on April 18, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Can anyone tell me if you can play many of the Wii games with a control pad and not the nunchucks, I have limited hand function but I can just about manage a playstation controller.

  21. Modular Curiosity on April 18, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Twilight Princess is amazing. Every Wii owner should have this game.

  22. Hobbs on April 18, 2021 at 12:17 am

    I’m afraid that as soon as I get Prime Trilogy, Prime 4 will release and be the greatest game ever.

  23. Colin GZ Network Plus on April 18, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Where is Warioland Shake It

  24. justZe on April 18, 2021 at 12:18 am

    In my opinion Kirby’s RtD is the best Kirby game and the best Wii game. Also Epic Yarn is the best spin off Kirby game.

  25. jake-t on April 18, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Wheres skylanders at😭

  26. casey hunt on April 18, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Excitebots 2 please

  27. The Memory Card on April 18, 2021 at 12:21 am

    I love the Wii, but these lists have also taught me that Europe often gets horrible versions of game names.

  28. Nicolai Kecskés on April 18, 2021 at 12:22 am

    I too like the Wii most!!!!!!!
    It was way funnier than my Switch.
    And Zelda is no more Zelda…

  29. Promaster121 on April 18, 2021 at 12:24 am

    I’m shocked to see that punch out is not on this list

  30. Rashed Alm7rmi on April 18, 2021 at 12:24 am

    Me When No Transformers Prime

    [ *INSERT MONKE RAGE* ]

    how do i dive underwater on skyward sword

  32. Ngọc Thụy Hà on April 18, 2021 at 12:26 am

    This list is the best game list on youtube to me. Thank you for the feeling!

  33. milk gallon on April 18, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Wipeout should be here

  34. mr420 on April 18, 2021 at 12:28 am

    I think I have all these games

  35. Promi Power on April 18, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Excitebots was my favorite game

  36. Nicolas El Hani on April 18, 2021 at 12:34 am

    hahaha best opening ever

  37. Swarming1092 on April 18, 2021 at 12:35 am

    RE4 is amazing but it *far* from perfectly paced. There’s a very key moment in that game where the quality drops noticeably (mostly, anyway), and it just becomes an action game and suffers for it.

  38. Nuclear Sandwich on April 18, 2021 at 12:40 am

    When I hear your voice I swear I’m about to hear you sing "You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch." 🙂

  39. FritzFrapp on April 18, 2021 at 12:40 am

    Good list, but some glaring omissions: Monster Hunter Tri, Little King’s Story, Excite Truck, Sin and Punishment: Star Successor, Punch-Out!!, and especially Disaster: Day of Crisis—my number one of the 7th generation.

  40. Chris Waudby on April 18, 2021 at 12:42 am

    The Wii was an absolute shit show and resi 4 Wii definitive version???? aaaahhahahahah wot bs bad shenanigans.

  41. Cameron Moore on April 18, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Jon: "It’d be hard to take Skyward Sword off the Wii"
    The new Nintendo Direct: I’m bout to end this man’s whole career

  42. Myfinal Smash on April 18, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Nintendo life: you don’t need skill to play Mario kart wii.

    Tas: oh is that a fact

  43. Garrett M on April 18, 2021 at 12:45 am

    I think sin and punishment should be somewhere on this list… Wii was huge for rail shooters and that game was way more than just that. It was great.

    Please don’t hate me but I like skylanders very much

  46. Poever on April 18, 2021 at 12:48 am

    It feels like cheating to include Resident Evil 4 when it’s not a Wii original

  47. GELTONZ on April 18, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Needs more Sin & Punishment: Star Successor and We Cheer 2. Those are *MY* two most played Wii games, that’s for sure!

  48. Janis Ozols on April 18, 2021 at 12:49 am

    1th has to be mario cart for wii

  49. Colin GZ Network Plus on April 18, 2021 at 12:49 am

    I mainly play the Switch version of RE4 on the go, for at home play I use the Wii edition!

  50. gaming lol on April 18, 2021 at 12:49 am
