The Top 3 Classic Must-Have Nintendo Wii Games
Have you ever been talking to someone about movies and heard “Oh man, how can you not have seen it?” when a classic movie comes up? Real classic movies are the kind of movie that are so good that everyone should see it at least once. Video games are the same way. With each console or handheld, a particular crop of games rises up above the rest: the true masterpieces and classics that define a console or a genre of game. Some of these are timeless classics like Super Mario Bros. For the NES and others are groundbreaking innovations that do something no other game has before like the first Pokemon Red and Blue games. Here’s a list of the truly classic games that every Wii owner should have in their library:
1. Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess – In my personal opinion (sorry Ocarina of Time fans) Twilight Princess is where the series hits its peak. Link has to set out on an epic adventure across light and shadow versions of Hyrule to fight an ancient evil that’s sweeping the land in darkness. This installation in the series has a sort of gritty realism that weighs on you as you play, you can really feel how important it is that Link save the world while you play.
2. Super Mario Galaxy – Galaxy takes the old Mario formula that we’ve come to know and love and throws it a curveball. Classic free roaming Mario open world gameplay thrown into the middle of space. Mario has tons of new worlds to explore, bad guys to beat, and challenges to conquer as he chases Bowser through space to rescue the princess and the castle. Galaxy adds so much to the classic Mario formula that there’s hours and hours of replay value built straight into the main story (even more if you like 100% completion on games).
3. Wii Sports – Wii Sports came bundled with the launch consoles, but if you bought any of the newer models, you really missed out! Wii Sports was a fun game that let you try your hand at boxing, bowling, tennis, baseball and golf. It let you really get a feel for all of the features of the Wii and was surprisingly fun for being a piece of software that was packaged with the console. It’s a little tougher to find, but just looking at the hours I’ve spent perfecting my bowling throws alone, the game is 110% worth picking up if you have the chance.
Those are the top three titles that every Wii owner should have in there cabinet, but there are dozens upon dozens of amazing games for the Wii available today. If there’s any of these three games that you don’t have on your shelf, do yourself a huge favor. Go out and pick them up today from your local game retailer (or online store) and I can guarantee that you’ll be glad you picked up these amazing classic games.
On April 26, 2006, Nintendo’s addition to their line up of video game system is the Nintendo Wii system, formerly codenamed “Revolution”. Nintendo had expressed “wii” represents the answer to their idea of a video game system – something that breaks down the walls between video game players and those who deem video games as uninteresting and too complicated.
Nintendo on their Wii system (“wii” is read as “we”), would like to emphasize that the console is made for everyone else around the world, whatever tongue people speak and whether they’re video gamers or not. Nintendo’s video game guru Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that the unveiling of the “Revelation” will be in E3 2006. The Nintendo wii system comes with a remote that can manipulate movements in the video game “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” such as the bow and arrow, throwing the boomerang, as well as other actions thanks to the motion-sensor.
In a policy briefing on June 7, 2006, Nintendo revealed its plans of releasing six million console units as well as 17 million software units in the fiscal year that ends March 31, 2007. Included in this are more than four million console units that intend to ship towards the end of 2006.
The Nintendo Wii system was officially launched on November 14, 2006, in North America and along that are 21 titles that were released on that same day, while 12 more games are scheduled for release in 2006. Together with the console package in everywhere else including Japan is Wii sports.
Here are game titles together with the release of the Nintendo Wii system: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Cars, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Need for Speed: Carbon, Red Steel, Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam, Wii Play, Call of Duty 3, GT Pro Series, Madden NFL 07, Monster 4×4 World Circuit, Rayman Raving Rabbids, SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab, Trauma Center: Second Opinion, and Wii sports.
The Nintendo Wii system measures only 44mm wide, 157 mm tall, and 215.4 mm deep. If you’d like a comparison, stacking three standard DVD cases can give you an approximate size of the Nintendo Wii system. It’s 1.74 kg weight makes this the lightest console yet compared with its counterparts. The console can take in 12cm game discs specified for the wii system The console is available in silver, white, black, red, and lime green colors, however, the initially available color in the market is white.
In case you’re wondering what is inside the package of the Nintendo wii system, it includes a stand for the console to be positioned vertically, a circular clear stabilizer, the console itself, as mentioned a “wii” remote, a Nunchuk attachment, a stand for the sensor bar that is removable, a sensor bar, an external main power adapter, two AA batteries, AV cables (although other component cables may be purchased separately) and Wii sports. Let’s just hope Nintendo, this time, has inherently packed in this gaming package exciting games for the novice and pros.
