    What the hell is a Zack and Wiki?

  4. Solino_Oruki on March 27, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    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 😂

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

  6. axel Atticus on March 27, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    WHERE’S FRAGILE DREAMS ? Maybe on it’s way to the… SWITCH? yeah I know it’s not happening 🙁

  7. Promi Power on March 27, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Excitebots was my favorite game

  9. Hobbs on March 27, 2021 at 11:10 pm

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

  10. Nicolas El Hani on March 27, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    hahaha best opening ever

  11. Randy Routley on March 27, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    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 🙂

  12. The Memory Card on March 27, 2021 at 11:13 pm

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

  13. Colin GZ Network Plus on March 27, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Where is Warioland Shake It

  14. Cameron Moore on March 27, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    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

    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.

  17. justadoggo on March 27, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    “it’s kinda hard to take [skyward sword] off the wii”
    yeah about that…

  18. mr420 on March 27, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    I think I have all these games

  19. Hippotripo on March 27, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Smh Jon needs to stick with the term ‘kongtext’ that he coined in the best games of the decade series on GameXplain.

  20. Modular Curiosity on March 27, 2021 at 11:21 pm

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

  21. LordSnoodles on March 27, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    5:14 Halo 3? What Nintendo system’s best-of does that fall under?

  22. JoshsNow on March 27, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Cant believe NSMBWii is not on here. Was my childhood. Going to have to sign up and right that now 😃

  23. jake-t on March 27, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Wheres skylanders at😭

  24. Deiradinn Draven on March 27, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    16:48 "production values through the roof"… sword hilt is clipping through his hat 😉

  25. Swarming1092 on March 27, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    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.

  26. Storm Gaming on March 27, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    why does he talk and walk so awkwardly

  27. Colin GZ Network Plus on March 27, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    The best Mario Kart! The first one I started with

  28. bleach lagsana on March 27, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    BRO LEGEND OF ZELDA TWILIGHT PRINCESS 😭😭😭

  29. Atsumi Marak • 15 years ago on March 27, 2021 at 11:32 pm

  30. Colin GZ Network Plus on March 27, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Where is Mario Strikers charged?

  31. Isaac Barrett-lennard on March 27, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    5:06 this was my entire childhood

  32. Nuclear Sandwich on March 27, 2021 at 11:34 pm

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

  33. Darren Goldsmith on March 27, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    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.

  34. DJjaza 88 on March 27, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    where tf is NSMBW

  35. Colin GZ Network Plus on March 27, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Is Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom a Wii Exclusive?

  36. Colin GZ Network Plus on March 27, 2021 at 11:43 pm

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

  37. Myfinal Smash on March 27, 2021 at 11:43 pm

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

    Tas: oh is that a fact

  38. Johnny Silverhand on March 27, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Twilight princess is beter on gamecube cuz no shit wii mote.

  39. bacalhau seco on March 27, 2021 at 11:44 pm

  40. Commandbaker333 on March 27, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    The Wii is just VR without the headset, cuz of the controllers

  41. Garrett M on March 27, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    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.

  42. milk gallon on March 27, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Wipeout should be here

  46. AkAkAkNeil on March 27, 2021 at 11:59 pm

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

  47. Poever on March 28, 2021 at 12:00 am

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

  48. Colin GZ Network Plus on March 28, 2021 at 12:00 am

    And prime hunters was good too

  49. Matt Owens on March 28, 2021 at 12:01 am

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

  50. Mitchell Watkins on March 28, 2021 at 12:01 am
