The Wii is a huge success story for Nintendo. It is selling better than the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony Playstation 3 which can be attributed to it's low price and the new way of controlling the action on screen using motion sensing technology.
The only thing that is really lacking right now is the supply of good games. I'm personally a bit concerned about the amount of crappy conversions from other systems that make their appearance on the Wii. If I would have to name the games that are really fun at this point I would probably be able to name 4-5 the most.
Instead of losing faith I thought it would be nice to share a video of the upcoming smash hits for the Nintendo Wii with all of you. You will see the normal bunch of Mario games but also some interesting ones that you probably have not heard about. Definitely worth watching.
Update: Well the video does not seem to be available anymore, we have removed it from the article as a consequence. since it is 2012 now I thought it would be nice to add a couple of videos highlighting the best Wii games that came out for the console instead.
