06: Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 5: 8-Bit Is Enough
With 5 episodes of Strong Bad already, you might as well play all of them-but number 5 is generally considered to be the best. It focuses almost entirely on Trogdor burninating the countryside. What's not to like??


07: Bit.Trip Core
If you're a bit of a sadist, it's worth getting one of the Bit.Trip titles on Wiiware. Core is obscenely tricky, gradually building into something that might make you want to spend the rest of the day rocking back and forth in the corner. It's worth it for the soundtrack alone, though.


08: Tomena Sanner
We've all been there; late for one of those 'ultimate 2D dance parties', you find yourself leaping over housewives, giraffes and dinosaurs. Or at least, if you've played Tomena Sanner. If not, jumping dinosaurs is highly recommended.


09: Bonsai Barber
There is pretty much next to no point to this game. It's ridiculous, relatively simple to play and finish, and downright bizarre. But actually, cutting vegetable hair is one of the most satisfying games' experiences you can have. No, really. Try it if you don't believe us.


10: Light Trax
bitGenerations games were some of the best things you could do on your Gameboy Advance, and therefore (of course) were Japan only. But a number of titles have been making their way to Wiiware under the Art Style banner, including racer Light Trax. A tricky mix of 2D and 3D, it's super slick and super cool.
