People say the Wii so far this year has been dead, so how many 2011 Wii games have you bought?

None. I'd say that it's unfair to ask that of me, since I've only bought two games released in 2011, both for the DS, but I'm not even sure if there were games released for the Wii this year. Can somebody name major releases for it? Or will I have to dig deep into the library of games until Skyward Sword comes out?

@Video_Game_King: No major ones, Kirby's Epic Yarn was released in the UK this year, other than that nothing.

the answer is none for me as well. Most recent game I bought was Galaxy 2. Unless you're counting WiiWare in which case I think Bit.Trip Fate came out this year...

Though I probably will get Kirby and Xenoblade at some point.

I've bought a bunch of games for it this year, but no games that were actually released this year, I picked up Madworld a few months ago for like £2.

To make matters worse, I traded in TW12: Wii for the Xbox 360 version. I hurt my shoulder and couldn't play it the way it was meant to be played. TW12 on the 360 is a great game.

It is! I played it a ton and managed to make my exact doppelganger in the character creator.

None. Which means I have officially brought more games for the Gamecube this year than the Wii.

Same here. And there hasn't been a third party Wii game I've wanted since No More Heroes 2 and that was all the way back in January of 2010.

None for me. Jeez, the last wii game that I bought must have been Mario galaxy 2, and that was over a year ago. Well, at least Zelda is coming out this fall, that's something at least.

My thoughts exactly.

I have played a VC game or two over this year (that I had previously purchased), but I have yet to buy any retail titles for it this year.

None.  The last Wii game I bought was Smash Bros Brawl, so 2008?  The only other game I'll be purchasing for the Wii is Skyward Sword if I can clean off all the dust on it by then.

None. The last thing I bought for my Wii was Kirby and that was last Christmas. Since I don't like Zelda the only hope I have for another Wii game worth buying is Xenoblade and I have no expectations that Nintendo will ever bring that to NA.

Maaaaaaan... in '94 I had a giant orange tube of pogs like that- but the very top one was made of metal and had a playing card on it (A king of diamonds, I think). Unfortunately, we moved that year and it got lost in the move and I haven't seen it since. I bet my parents threw them away and told me they were lost. Jerks.

I know for sure that 3D Pixel Racing is one of them, only because it stands out. And I'm not sure when other games were released, so... I know there are a handful. Been spending my time with last years games.

Man, thinking about the state of the Wii today just depresses me.

I genuinely enjoyed up until about 18 months ago when it seemed like every interesting title that would be made had already come out.

I enjoy so many Nintendo games but with the slow acceptance of the 3DS, unless Wii U hits it big (and I have my doubts) it might be time to go the way of Sega and throw in the hardware towel.

So far this year, it has been: 
 
0 Wii games 
0 DS games 
2 PS3 games 
A lot of PC games 
 
However, overall, i have more Wii games (25-ish) than DS (20-ish) or PS3 (11-ish) (but i have more PC games than all of the combine). 
 
So yeah, there the next Zelda and Kirby, but that might just be it, if they don't bring over Xenoblade and such.  I still plan on getting a Wii U (eventually, like the 3DS), since i do like their games a lot more than everyone else's (hence why my user name is red... or at least it should be if the text system hasn't changed).

Wii games I've bought this year:  Goldeneye Wii, Little King's Story, Soinc Colors, Wii Party, Tatsunoko v. Capcom, Excitebots and Mario Super Sluggers. 
 
None of them came out this year.  All were $10-$20 except TvC, which was $30. 
 
I'd buy Xenoblade Chronicles and Last Story, but you know...

None, the only games I've bought for it are Zelda and Galaxy 2.  I'd buy more if nintendo would drop the fucking price on their games.
