The Nintendo Wii (2006-2012)

Ahhhh....so many memories. So many great games. Such a great system. If it hadn't been for 2011 it would have been my most played console of this generation.

The Last Story will be a great send-off to a fantastic console (unless Pandora's Tower releases in America :pray: ). Bring on the Wii U...my body is ready.

Good memories of NMH 1 + 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii. That's about it though

I found the Wii got a lot of undeserved hate from "hardcore" gamers. Why I have no idea as it has the best library of games available.

The Wii was a pretty awesome system. I love that this tribute features the Disaster: Day of Crisis main theme! It's such an epic composition.

I'm glad to see all of my favorite Wii games get recognition in this video; especially lesser-known ones like Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and The Crystal Bearers. Games like those two and Disaster really showed off what could be done using the Wii's motion controls in an action/adventure sort of title. I hope that more games on the Wii U can build upon what those games accomplished.

Gosh, I really gotta get Sin and Punishment 2. I've been playing the N64 one and man, what a solid game.

Also, I am so ready for Last Story. Have had such a ride in trying to play this game since the JPN release, and damn am I excited that it's finally happening.

For my money, It was OK as far as Nintendo systems go. I still prefer pretty much any generation of Nintendo hardware before it though.

I think the N64, NES and SNES will be remembered the most. And the Wii is one of the worst consoles, compared to their fathers before. I Just have so many more memories with the classics, might also have to do with my childhood though.

Yup. And yeah, I would agree that there is some nostalgia at work here. None the less, for me, the Wii was the least enjoyable of the Big N's Consoles. The Wii U looks better to me as I like the dual analog tablet device and am interested to see what devs do with it.

You know, I've actually totally reconsidered the N64 recently. While I get that some games age more poorly then others (not to mention controller designs... ), the N64 doesn't really have much to it. It's actually far poorer then the Wii in 3rd Party greats, and I really don't think the 1st party titles are that much "more" then Wii, if not less. A lot of nostalgia, certainly, but the Wii is actually a really terrific system that contests with the other Nintendo systems. While it certainly must have sucked if you instantly bought the system and stuck with the constant droughts and what-not, it is, now, a really high-quality and worthwhile system to own.

There were a lot of shovelware for the 64. But I thought the big N in house stuff with Rare made the best games. Banjo Tooie and Kazooie, Goldeneye, I just have so many fond memories. And Ocarina is my favorite video game they ever made (probably) and Super Mario 64 is right up there too.

Yeah, the game's that were great definitely remain great. I remember it being the biggest deal in the world when I unlocked Drumstick in Diddy Kong Racing, and I couldn't even estimate the amount of time spent with the first Smash Bros.

I think if the Wii is the weakest link in the chain, then that's a very impressive chain. Personally, I have to agree with @. The 64 had 5 super classics and that's really it. Don't get me wrong, those 5 classics pretty much changed gaming and/or defined 3D gaming, but despite that the 64 may be the weakest link.

Diddy Kong was one of the most underrated games ever. I think I liked it more than Mario Kart. The levels were just more fun, and I liked the "Tube" and and "Plane" vehicles too. That stage where you take that plane into the hot lava. :daydream: @

Well I clearly am not as into Nintendo IPs as I once was so that has a real effect on my judgment. I see that the Nintnedo fans here seem to agree, which is likely a better indicator of the Wii's ranking amongst Nintendo consoles than mine! That said, the N64 was magical for me when it came out. MArio 64 and Pilot Wings alone justified the system for me and I enjoyed the hell out of Shadows of the Empire and Killer Instinct Gold!

Such a great system.

If I had to rank every game console I've played in my lifetime, the Wii would be somewhere between the 3DO and Gamegear.
