Wow, that's pretty odd considering that they haven't been releasing too many real games lately. No offense to Wii Fit, but... Anyhow, the last game I saw that looked any good was Mad World, and from what I hear, it wasn't anywhere near as good as Godhand. There hasn't been too much recently though, and I don't count Virtual Console games because those are still of their own platform.

Madworld was good, but it was way too short. That's it's problem. And it takes gore way over the top to some people. I'm hoping Fatal Frame, Conduit, and Cursed Mountain will help the Wii out some later on down the road.

I can't believe that pokemon Platinum was the best selling in North America because I thought that most people apart from collecters will avoid it seeing as it's the exact same game. However there is a few extra things on it, i like the new online thing as well. I must of been wrong, hey hey!
