Wow, pretty terrible choice for a top pick.

You criticize a game that you haven't even played... so why did you buy it? There is no shame in a fun (albeit very simple) game that is priced to move selling well - and there is no shame in admitting that Wii Play is better than many similarly priced downloadable games available on any current-gen console. Not every mini-game on the disc is great, but several are worthy of significant replay. A $10 investment hardly seems unreasonable, and making decent games an impulse purchase instead of a major decision is a brilliant business strategy.

Did some people buy Wii Play just because it was a Wii remote pack-in? Sure. But if the actual game wasn't worth playing then most people would've ended up buying remotes without the game included... you do realize that they sell remotes *without* the game included, right?

Oh, it's also worth noting that PES 2008 on Wii is actually a great game. Not as pretty or traditional as the PS3/360 versions, but very innovative and playable. Of course, not many "gamers" have probably bothered to try.
;)


That said, I think you need to add Carnival Games to the list. A poorman's imitation of Wii Play that sells for full retail and doesn't include any pack-in? And apparently it's sold over a milliion copies so far...

You...didn't even PLAY Wii Play? What was the point of spending an extra $10 on the remote then? Sure, when the Wii first came out, Wii Play was the only way you were getting a second remote, but now they're easy to get.

Transformers sold so well because little kids begged their parents for the game. The movie was a giant success and with the amount of kids that saw it, it makes sense that they would want to play the game.

Your other choices...Well, you wasted $10 on a remote, so I don't really feel a need to challenge you.

why was halo 1,2, and 3 not the top 3 they are easily the most over-rated games in history. UT2004 was a much better game.
