    Yeah, I still rate my games on a ten point scale (as opposed to the 4 point scale used by the games press) so 6-7 = Good, 8-9 = Great, 10 = Masterpiece

    Off-topic: surely saying that "the games press" uses a four point scale is just as selective as using a four point scale in the first place?

    Granted, it's a generalisation - but it has a grounding in truth.

    Most of the games press will score most games on a 7-10 scale.

    Lol, wtf is this shit? You've NOT played the games bolded in the list?

    Most of the best Wii games (what few decent ones there are) are the ones you've bolded in that list.
    You should probably narrow it down to 10 and also the games you've bolded.

    Not played or didn't think were great. You should try reading.

    You said 'best', I think you meant 'popular'.

    So you thought Excite Truck was "great", but either you didn't think Mario Kart was "great" or you haven't played it at all.

    You, sir, are a mentalist.

    There's a reason popular games are popular. It's because they're the best.

    And there are some dire inclusions on that list. There arem't 100 great games on any platform...

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Thats all very interesting, or not. Not I think.

    You should follow the first point you made and try reading my post yourself.
    It's perfectly clear.

    Popzeus - I thought Mariokart was awful. I even preferred Sonic & Sega Allstars.

    Yes, I think that's closer to it. Though perhaps some reviewers have played more truly awful games than the rest of us, altering their own barometer of average.

    On Excite Truck vs Mario Kart... one is better in single player, the other is the Demon's Souls of online multiplayer racing.

    pinebear - I'm a bit old skool so I still consider challenging and original SP content to be vastly more important than multiplayer... except for fighters.

    Thanks for this list jaguarwong, I'm rediscovering my dusty wii as my 5 year old is now old enough to start playing with me.

    I'm sure it took a bit of effort to compile this, with the hope being that it ill be useful to someone. It may well be to me, cheers.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Well, the new Zelda got a 10/10 in Edge, so you can add that to your list, jaguarwong

    Not that much effort TBH, it started as a list of '30 Great Wii Games' in my profile on another site, I've just been adding to it for a while.

    Cheers

    I think the chance of a Zelda game not scoring highly are pretty remote.

    I've never been much of a fan.

    Xenoblade is supposed to be awesome and like the best RPG of this gen. I cant wait to play it.

    That's a fair point, jaggy. Did you have a chance to try Excitebots' online component?

    No, I played a fair bit of splitscreen though.

    I thought it was great on both front's - no idea why there was no official release in Europe.

    Jaegarbombs

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Yeah, but to be honest it's better to just go by gameplay, and leave innovation to the side.

    For example, the 10/10 for LittleBigPlanet is a regrettable one.

    Jaegarbombs are good. I like doritos but I wouldn't eat a family bag all to myself. That would just be crazy.

    It depends heavily on the dip and flavour. I reckon I could nail a bag of lightly salted with a pot of hot salsa.

    The same length of time it took you to complete every JRPG on 'the twins'. On easy.
