The Nintendo Wii is arguably the one console responsible for bringing video games into the mainstream. People who didn’t care much for video games found the system to be extremely accessible, and the games appealing even to their unfamiliar eyes. It was a true family console, meant to be played with the people around us, to fully experience what the system was capable of doing. The Wii also had a substantial library of video games, and wowed everyone with the sheer variety of first-party exclusives and third-party offerings from both AAA studios as well as indie establishments across a variety of genres. Without further ado, here is the list of the top games ever to have been released on the Nintendo Wii.
12. Dead Space: Extraction (2009)
The ‘Dead Space’ games have mastered the art of making the environment feel alive, but in a thoroughly deadly way that makes your heart race and fearful of what is about to happen. With ‘Extraction’, Wii gamers got a taste of the good ol’ ‘Dead Space’ medicine.

11. Super Paper Mario (2007)
With the release of the Wii, fans demanded a ‘Mario’ role-playing game right from the get-go. They got their wish in the form of the delightful ‘Super Paper Mario.’ The game was a hilarious and heartfelt take on the RPG genre, and the transition to contemporary times was done wonderfully. The RPG and platforming mechanics were on point, and the game utilised the Wii Remote really well. The dialogue in particular deserves some special attention, as it was brilliantly self-referencing and funny to its core.
