The best selling wii game other than wii sports or wii play is wii fit.
Seeing as one of those comes with the console and the other comes with an extra controller I think that's pretty much a taken.
Did you even read my list? Last time I checked okami and the ace attorney series (my favourite series atm) aren't over charged or violent.
And the whole Wii is for babies and housewives thing is a gross misconception toted by those who can't really be bothered by games because they're not "pretty enough" for the "hardcore gamer", a term which is also way misused and thrown around these days.
That used to be the case, it isn't anymore.
If you don't count the first party games the top selling 3rd party games are guitar hero (actually ok), sports island (a party game), Game party (another crappy party game), Big brain academy (oh my!) EA sports active (yeah! wooo best game ever!) and carnival games.
I'd like to point out that they outrank resident evil 4 and metroid prime 3.
And well lets list the top 10 first party games.
Wii sports (FAAAANTASSSSSTINNNCCCC.....for about 3 minutes)
Wii play (awful, bought for the extra wiimote)
Wii fit (not even a damn game)
Mario kart wii (Not as good as double dash or even the DS version)
Super smash bros brawl (not as good as melee)
Super mario galaxy (the first good game in the list.)
Mario party 8 (this game is awful....sooooo awful)
Twilight princess ( Good, but only as good as every other damn zelda game, no originality what so ever, ridiculous considering the series is 23 years old)
Crossbow training (yeah, a minigame game, good stuff)
Notice, 4 I repeat FOUR of the top 10 FIRST PARTY games are crappy party games and fitness crap.
And the rest are simply continuations of a series with little change.
Let us now look at the top 10 ps3 games:
Gran turismo 5 (awful...admittedly)
Motorstorm (yet again awful)
Ok so the first 2 are racing games...thats a shame now lets look at the next 8.
MGS 4 (a good game, quite innovative)
GTA IV ( a good game, clever well thought out, and actual expands on gameplay)
Uncharted drakes fortune (probably the best game of it's genre in a decade)
Resistance fall of man (an fps with an original story, clever new weapons better than metroid by a huge stretch)
Res evil 5 (not the best in the series, but it has an interesting new dynamic atleast and knows how to change with the years)
Heavenly sword (I will admit, I have not played this)
Killzone 2 (this game is a fantastic fps and has great online play)
Motorstorm again (wtf)
Ratchet and clank tools of destruction (a platformer on par with the mario series)
This is the thing, all those wii games were either poor copies of previous games with wii controls thrown on, or party games.
You can't say that about the ps3, the DS, the PSP, the Xbox 360 (even if it is dominated by fps's)
They actually innovate, the wii does not.
I also would like to point out that only 1 of the games in EA's list is even in the top 20, and thats metroid prime 3, and thats below game party.
And trust me, thats bad, it is probably the worst game I've played...ever.
The fact is, it's not about graphics, the graphics do matter to an extent, but the last time I went to my local games shop the wii shelf was filled to the brim with crappy party games and the top ranking games on the list were no way near as good as the ps3 alternatives, in fact, let's take sales out, lets go by ranking, I'll use top ten reviews for this.
1. super mario galaxy
4 metroid prime 3
5. res evil 4 (a port)
8.Okami (a port)
10.world of goo
Now let us compare with the ps3.
2. Lil big planet
4. TES 4 Oblivion
5. COD 4
6. Killzone 2.
7. Rock band.
8. street fighter 2
9. street fighter 4.
Now the xbox.
1. GTA 4
3. The orange box
5. TES 4
6. Rock band
7. Gears of war.
9. Halo 3.
10. Guitar hero 2.
Honestly 4 of the top 10 wii games are almost identical copies of the previous installation of the series.
1 of them is a golf game, 1 of them is a remake, 2 of them are ports. Thats 7 out of 10 of them.
Nintendo has no originality left.
