The Nintendo Wii was smiled for a long time at best: Both video game editors, as well as “core” gamers made fun of the Nintendo console. The lack of graphics and computing power would be indisputable, it would be anyway only children’s games for the system come out it was. Still, the Wii wii sold sliced bread – rightly so! Because this inconspicuous console should have a place in the sun in any good gaming budget.
Great game pearls, which only exist on the Nintendo Wii
In addition to the great offshoots of Nintendo’s house brands such as Donkey Kong Country Returns, Mario Kart Wii and the Metroid Prime Collection, the Wii has one of the best, most versatile gaming libraries ever.
You like Jump & Runs? Super Mario Bros Wii, Wario Land: The Shake Dimension … * deep air * A boy and his blob, Kirby and the magic yarn, DeBlob or SonicColors?
Are you interested in puzzle or strategy games? Zach & Wiki, Trauma Center & Trauma Team, Little King’s Story, Anno: Create a new world, Harvest Moon: Your animal parade or Kororinpa, I highly recommend you!
But rather looking for a serious adventure? You may also be able to enjoy No More Heroes 1 and 2, Red Steel 2, Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Skies, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, and Resident Evil 4. The latter got on the Wii probably the best implementation! Oh, and this little, almost indie-like franchise called “The Legend of Zelda” was still there.
So many high-class players and still there are still a lot of titles, which at that time possibly have gone down, but now turned into real game beads. Muramasa: The Demon Blade, a fantastic 2D hack & slay. The Shadowwalker: The Secret of the Dark Tower, an extremely original Jump & Run, which was not unjustly winning many awards and awards. Or my secret favorite – Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon, an apocalyptic anime adventure where you as a teenager explore the ruins of Japan. For fans of Ghibli films such as The Last Fireflies remains here remains eye dry.
You can see, the game library is not only gigantic, but above all, multifaceted. Surely, other consoles also have nice (re) games, but hardly a console managed to serve as many genres and at the same time deliver high-class players, like the Nintendo Wii.
Does not cost anyway!
Another purchase argument for the Nintendo Wii is the low purchase price: already for about 50 euros the piece of jewelry from Nintendo you belong! Also the price of the games is (usually) in an acceptable setting: for the majority of the above games you do not even have to pay a ten. So much play for so little money is otherwise only on the PC or the Nintendo DS.
The possibility to play Gamecube games
In contrast to the Wii was the Gamecube unfortunately no commercial success. This is not to say much about the quality of the games, because the was synonymous on the console cube absolutely great. At this point, I would like to spare you another listing of dozens of game beads, but I would spontaneously recommend Super Mario Sunshine, Killer7 and Pokémon Colosseum. If you are looking for more fantastic Gamecube titles, you will definitely find in our picture gallery.
Another plus: With the Nintendo Wii’s backward compatibility, you can play a wide range of Wii games with the hot-looking Gamecube controller, one of the best Joypads of all time. What brings us to our next point.
