Default Complete Wii Collection

I'm sucker for collection galleries, and this is pretty awesome. They were only collecting since the end of 2015.



Including last October’s release of Just Dance 2017, 1,262 games have been released in North America for the Nintendo Wii since its late 2006 launch. NintendoAge forum user NintendoTwizer has collected all of them.

Along with the 1,262 games (plus some double packs and variants), NintendoTwizer has also collected all four Wii colors and all 12 official Nintendo Wii remote colors. Here’s a shot of the whole shebang.



In a lengthy post on the NintendoAge forums (via Destructoid), the collector explains how his collection came together and why he decided to gather a complete set of games and hardware for a system infamously plagued by shovelware.

Quote:
The Wii is a fascinating system. It sold over 100 million units. It was an insane success for Nintendo. No other Nintendo home system including the original Nintendo could touch it in sales. Think about that. Everyone had one (including my grandma). For me, I felt it would be an interesting challenge. The Wii was unexplored territory. Not many people have gone for a complete set. Yes, I can hear it now… so much shovel ware. To that I say sure, there’s a ton of great games and a ton of shovelware, but that’s cool. The crappy games tell an interesting story as well. I don’t know how many times I came across a random Wii game and said to myself… “what the hell, they made this for the system?”. That was part of the fun.
It’s almost enough to make me want to remember where it was my Nintendo Wii wound up after I boxed it up for the last time.


The Maximum Racing set, which NintendoTwizer says are some of the rarest Wii games.

What makes the collection even more impressive is NintendoTwizer has only been putting it together since late 2015, having sold his first modest collection of more than 100 games earlier that year to help build a new house.

I could never collect the whole Wii library and live with myself, that is just way too much shovelware to spend money on. Out of those they are maybe 50 actual good games in whole library.

Was thinking the same. It's an impressive feat but I don't think I would put all that effort for the Wii.

50 is too low of a number. I am sure if you went through a list of every game you would find more than that.
