I think Epic Mickey will take it. The name alone carries that game quite a bit.

I hope Epic Yarn. I think it "deserves it" more than the other choices. I don't really know why I feel like one games deserves to be more successful though. Kinda weird.

I always root for Metroid to sell huge, but it's not even a contest. Wii Party will destroy the others in sales.

I chose Goldeneye, even though it doesn't stand a chance.

Wii Party will sell considerably more than all the others combined. 
 
Heck, I want to play Wii Party. It looks like a true spiritual successor to the good Mario Party games, and those were outragously entertaining.
 
However, Nintendo seems to really push Donkey Kong Country Returns, and from what I have seen from this game at GamesCom, it might just end up being the highest rated title from that list. It's certainly the one I want to play the most.

I'm actually looking forward to Wii Party despite not caring at all about the Mario Party games. As for Donkey Kong Country Returns, it's got the brand name, universal appeal, and Retro making the damn thing. There's no doubt in my mind that DKCR is gonna be awesome.

Wii Party. The name screams 'Buy me for your son/daughter that you know has a Wii but you're not overly sure what game to get them' or 'Buy me for your mum/dad that you know has a Wii but would never play anything thats not a mini game collection'.
In its defence it doesnt seem totally lowest common denominator.

That is because the Wii series has been fun.

At the very least, it's been long enough since Mario Party 8 that the development team behind Wii Party might have had a chance to come up with some fresh ideas.  Not a guarantee that it won't feel like a tired clone of Mario Party, but the extra time off could work in the game's favor.

I'm going with DKC, all the way. Man, there's a lot of big games coming to the Wii this year. I figured most of these were coming out next year.

I don't think it is fair to have Wii Party on that list...

I sorta agree.  I'd like to be wrong, but...a party game...on the Wii...from Nintendo.  They've already dumped the truck of money on their doorstep.  If it weren't for that, I'd say Donkey Kong Country Returns because there's A LOT of nostalgia for Donkey Kong Country.

Wii Party, maybe Epic Mickey. I wish it would be Metroid: Other M though.

I picked other, but if I were a betting man, I'd put my money on New Super Mario Bros Wii still outselling all of those games around the holiday season.

Fans would like the answer to be anything but Wii Party. 
 
Mom's and Grandma's picking out a game for little Johnny and baby Jesse... will buy them Wii Party.
