In which we honour the finest Wii games released so far, from the sublime Super Mario Galaxy and the marvellous Metroid: Other M to the ravishing Red Steel 2. Think we've missed out a killer Wii game? Let us know in the comments section below.
Super Mario Galaxy 2
This platforming masterpiece scoops up the myriad ideas that erupted from Mario Galaxy's bubbling volcano of creativity, and stretches each and every one of them out like a Technicolor accordion. Then it adds about ten billion more of its own, simply because it can. Tactile, joyful and totally ace, this is easily the best game ever made. Any better, and the human mind simply wouldn't be able to process it.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Producer Eiji Aonuma finally lays the ghost of Ocarina to rest with this, the Zelda that rewrites all the rules. The Skyloft setting is a wonderland, and the MotionPlus swordplay allows you to 'be' Link like never before.
Super Mario Galaxy
One moment you're ice-skating in outer space; the next, you're bouncing on a conveyor belt made of Battenberg. Such is its energy and thirst to explore new frontiers that even the emergence of a (marginally) superior sequel fails to make this any less than essential
The Legend Of Zelda:Twilight Princess
After an hour, you've herded goats and rescued a cat. After six, you're walking upside down above a lava pit. After 40, you're hookshotting across a temple in the clouds. A stirring, impossibly epic adventure.
Resident Evil 4
You know you're trucking with a special survival horror game when you enter an abandoned village armed to the teeth and you still end up browning your Wario boxers. The extra precision of the remote makes one of the best games ever even better.
