Super Smash Bros. Brawl finds itself at number 3 on our list of top ten first-party Wii games. JP, Josh, David, and Mike talk about the highs and lows of Brawl, how it compares to the other games in the series, who the best characters are, and why it is undoubtedly one of the best games on the Wii.

Great game, well deserving to b so far up the list. Based on the games that are left and the discussions on other podcasts, Twilight Princess will be #2 or #1, could Skyward Sword be the other one? The top 2 spots being Zelda games?

This is going to make me unpopular (who am I kidding? It's going to make me more unpopular) but I don't think the Smash Bros games are all that. The fan service is fun, but I'm not really a fan of the gameplay or mechanics (unsurprising really given my dislike of Kirby platformers).

I had pinned quite alot of my hopes for Brawl upon the Sub-Space Emissary, and while the connective tissue of that mode (i.e. the cutscenes) was pretty cool, the gameplay just wasn't there for me.

As I don't have that many people around me who would be willing to play video games competitively, I was also looking forward to playing online. I think we all know how that went.

Largely because of the terrible online and the really boring adventure mode I didn't have all that much to do apart from unlock things.

I can appreciate why it's this high up this list (clearly lots of people enjoy these games), but to be honest it probably wouldn't crack my top 20 never mind my top 10.

The Super Mario Galaxy 2 feature already spoiled Galaxy 1 being on the list. So I'm calling Skyward Sword #2 and Galaxy #1

I listened to that podcast and I don't recall them saying SMG was #1. Plus, at least 1 NWR staff member put Twilight Princess as their #1 choice, and I would be shocked if other staff members didn't have it in their top 10 too (enough to at least put it in the top 10 for the overall list).

Though the first Mario Galaxy game made our list as well, we couldn’t justify simply bundling these two great Wii games under a single entry.

Twilight Princess was a GAMECUBE game.
