A question that comes up regularly on Wii U forums goes like this: "I never bought a Wii. Now that I have a Wii U, which is backwards compatible, what good Wii games can I play on it?"
I've written a lot of "best of the Wii" lists over the year, but here are the best lists to answer this question. First off, there's the 11 Best Wii Exclusives of All Time. This is a list of the best games I ever played on the Wii that could not be played on any other console. Although if you haven't owned any game consoles for a few years, you might prefer the 15 Greatest Games Ever Released for the Wii, which includes multi-platform games.
Of course, "best of" lists are very subjective, and there are some highly acclaimed games that I just really didn't like. For that reason, you might find some of your future favorite Wii games among my list of the 10 Most Overrated Wii Games of All Time. This list includes a number of games that other people would highly recommend.
