that list is a pretty neat tool:
sort it like this: 100 titels all plattforms:
only 3 wii titels are in the list
7 ps3
12 360
with the ps3 one year behind the 360 thre pretty much at the same level of AAA titels
if you sort wii games top 100 and compare it to ps3 / 360 / ps2 top 100 you see the quality difference with the wii titels

I don't know about best year, but definitely 3rd party wise.

If I look at this list I see a lot of games I want to play :)

But only 2 PS3 exclusives though, rest are on 360 as well.

here is a guide for reviewing wii lists

1. look through games (ignoring them) for a potentially crappy game
2. Post how because potentially crappy game is on the list therefore entire list is invalidated

Pretty much shows how much reviews are worth these days. Both Galacy and GTA4 should be nowhere near OOT.
Galaxy being second to Ocarina is pretty much cool with me. GTAIV however...

I'm of the "San Andreas was better than IV" camp.

I'm sorry to be a pessimist but when you have a game like Marble Saga: Kororinpa 2 listed as "one of the top games for next year", you know it's going to be a shit year for games.

I can't say I'm interested in even one of those games.

Tell me how much you know about any of them.

For people who actually follow Wii news, there is some promising stuff from promising developers.

Funnily enough, that is one of the few games on the list I am somewhat interested in. The first Kororinpa is the only Wii game I own (except Wii Sports) where I felt that the motion controls actually improved the experience.

While I will certainly have more more than enough games to play, I still hope the companys are going to announce a lot more titles in the next six months. The more titles are coming, the less trolling in GAF.

Uhm, when was Tatsunoko vs Capcom ever announced for regions outside of Japan. It's a safer bet to say it isn't coming because of licensing issues.
It's not :lol

EDIT: Does the OP forget that Wii isn't region free. That Haruhi game is definately not coming outisde of Japan (well, it's an anime game so it wouldn't be good anyway, but..)

Kororinpa 1 is the best marble rolling game ever. You = fail.

Importing Wii games really isn't as much of a hassle as people make it out to be. I think it's fair enough to include Japan-only games on a list like this. Heck, the 360's line-up would look pretty grim to me without games like DoDonpachi or Death Smiles.

It is if you want it to be, and only takes a few minutes to make it so.

I like the list in the opening. There's far more games there that I'd like to play then I thought. As well as the existing library, there's enough for me to play. Plus with my 360 crapping out again and my 3 year warranty up this month, I need another system to complement my PS3.

Balance board and Motion+ titles will make 2009 a fantastic year for the wii. I expect many titles to leverage it in the 2nd half of the year. We know Ubisoft (red steel 2) and EA (tennis game) are working on it, and it should soon become a norm. A revolution in controls is finally coming, Nintendo's vision is about to be unleashed, can't wait :)

Next year will most likely be the first year I've had to pass by some titles Im pretty interested in and The Wii will be cutting into DS time. It's getting a bit crowded for my limted game time.

"Hmm...maybe."

Capcom VS Tatsunoko

Cosmic Walker
Little King's Story
Sonic and the Black Knight
Dynamic Slash
Ougon no Kizuna
Tenchu 4: Art of the Ninja
Fatal Frame 4: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse

"I think I'll Pass"
Arc Rise Fantasia
Fragile: Farewell Ruins of the Moon

I think 2009 will be remembered as the year third parties finally stepped it up on the Wii. The only two games on the entire list that are developed by Nintendo are Wii Sports 2 and Pikmin 3. That's a pretty stunning turn around from just a year ago.

come to think of it almost every Wii fighting game supports GCN and CC.

Day One:
Sin and Punishment 2
Punch-Out!
The Conduit
Pikmin 3
No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle
Pikmin 1 & 2 WiiMakes (never owned the originals)
Capcom VS Tatsunoko
Little Kings Story
Fatal Frame (if it actually comes out)
Fragile

Much better vs what I got for my Wii in the second half of 2008, which has been nothing except World of Goo (which is awesome) and will be Mushroom Men.

I think if sports games are being listed, then Pro Evo 2009 should be there as well. Supposedly they've improved the defensive controls and added Classic Controller support for those who prefer a traditional control method.

About the same amount of games I bought for Wii this past year.

NMH2, Conduit, Punch Out, S&P2, Mad World

Here's to hoping Nintendo has some aces up their sleeve......

What a trainwreck. The hilarious thing is if that 90% of those games were exclusives on 360 or PS3 most of the haters would be gushing praise over the list.

Oh well... Many stuff I'm interested on the OP. Also can't wait for more WiiWare goodness.

i don't think anyone expected major announcements for SE on any platform in 2008, and i'm not sure why you use the term "we" when you don't like the wii and it's pretty clear you couldn't care less if it ends up getting announcements or not.

I doubt that, PS360 owners only seem to be interested in generic crappy Western shooters.

A few big western franchines and a couple IPs from Nintendo (EAD/Retro/Intelligent Systems) and the list could be decent. Currently it has lots of quirky and unique stuff but lacks the BIG names.
