Mario Party 1, 2 and 3 are far better than any Mario Party of the Wii. Nintendo changed the formula and it made me doubt of those games.

Did think that Nintendo Land would top the list, and it deserves it too. So much fun, with so much to do, there's literally something for everyone.

I know that this will be the new thing that replaces Wii Sports for Christmas in my house.

I'm suprised that Kirbys Wii wasn't on here. You don't want to know how many fights me and my brother have had on Super Smash Bros where the other person keeps dying :oops:

Wii Party.
I see no Wii Party.
Wii Party is by FAR my favourite party game ever (I mean, it's called Wii PARTY)! It's just so much fun to play with friends. :D
Woo hoo!

I would personally argue that Smash Bros isn't a game that anyone can play regardless of skill level. Especially if your not very good at it and playing against someone who is.
The Mario & Sonic sports games are a much better all-skills party game in my opinion, the best being Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (it's also more seasonal). Even the first game got a mention in hit BBC sitcom, Outnumbered. ONe of my favourite moments in that show is hearing Hugh Dennis proclaim "I am NOT playing as Princess Peach!"

It's an assist trophy. And that apostrophe is wrong.

Good luck finding enough people to come to a New Year's party who will be willing to play a load of Nintendo games on a Wii/Wii U...
My Youtube career kinda ended, so...I really have nothing to put here anymore...

I find it funny how I look at most of these and think "the Gamecube version was so much better".

Then again, people tend to play stuff like Rockband at parties which is more accessible than all of these combined, so yeah.
