First Party:

Excite Truck
The Legend Of Zelda:Twilight Princess
Metroid Prime 3:Corruption
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Paper Mario
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Wii Play
Wii Sports

Third Party:

Ghost Squad
Sonic And The Secret Rings
Super Monkey Ball:Banana Blitz
Zack & Wiki:Quest For Barbaros' Treasure

Judging by that at the moment I have 8 first party games and 4 third party games. Therefore two thirds or 66% of my collection is first party. I would probably have a lot more Wii games if I didn't also own a 360 and a PS3.

Wow, you own all the consoles! How many games do you have for the 360 and PS3?

I don't actually own that many for any one console as I'm pretty picky about what games I buy. I also have a PSP and a DS which adds to the mix.

Wii - 12 games.
PS3 - 15 games
360 - 20 games
DS - 25 games
PSP - 15 games

I still have a lot of PS2 and Gamecube games I still play too. For the 360 I generally only buy exclusive games as I'm on my second one and I don't know if i'll buy another one if this one goes. As all my consoles are imports I have no warranty on them. When my 360 Premium broke with the three red lights syndrome I couldn't send it in to MS to get it repaired as it was a US console so I ended up buying a US Elite.

I own all but the PS3 though that will be changing maybe soon. (If I have the money to spare when the rebate checks come out in two months.)

I'm kind of picky when it comes to my games but I have bought some stinkers. Unfortunatly I usually don't have to time to play through most of them. Since I work full time, go to school, plus I'm trying to get a game out so I can pay for my loan payment when they come after I graduate.
Stupidity is lost on my. Then again I'm almost always lost.

By now I've added

FP:
Wario Land: Shake Dimension (gift)
Wii Fit (90€ but I think we split the costs or something)

TP:
Sonic and the Secret Rings (30€)
Wing Island (15€)
No More Heroes (34€)
Zack & Wiki (50€ but got a 10€ gift card)
Blast Works (um... forgot. Something in GBP.)
de Blob (47€)
Death Jr. (10€)

Also 17 Wii Points cards.

For comparison, my 360 list is:
Saints Row (10€, this is where the Z&W gift card went)
Phantasy Star Universe (7€)
The Outfit (13€ used)
Eternal Sonata (25€, should've waited since it dropped to 10€ a bit later...)
Earth Defense Force 2017 (25€)
Wartech (15€)
1x 2100 points card (25€)

First party:
Wii Sports
Metroid Prime 3
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Warioland: Shake it!

Third party:
MLB Power Pros
Guitar Hero 3
Zack & Wiki
Guitar Hero: World Tour

That's a pretty good balance between third party and first party.  Ignore Wii Sports (which I didn't choose to own anyway) and it's dead even.  Too bad only one of my third party games is actually a Wii exclusive.

Geez, there are so many good-to-great titles missing from that list.  No wonder you complain about not having anything to play!
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Geez, there are so many good-to-great titles missing from that list.  No wonder you complain about not having anything to play!

Super Paper Mario is the only currently released title I'm really interested in that I don't already have.  Any of the other stuff that interests me I can get or have got on my Cube or PS2 which both offer normal controls and usually cost less money.  If Twilight Princess was a Wii exclusive I would have it for sure but I wasn't going to buy a brand new console for a game I could get on a console I already owned and with superior controls.  So I have the Cube version and thus one of the best Wii games is automatically not in my collection.

I find the third party selection on the Wii to be really pathetic so I'm not going to have a bunch of okayish third party games.  I hate waggle so I'm not going to have anything available on a console I already own.  I hate non-games so I'm not going to have any of the Wii ____ series.  So what's going to interest me the most is the first party game core games and I have most of the major ones of those.

My tastes aren't any different than they were on the Cube.  The difference is at the same time the Cube had better third party support and Nintendo's output was 100% core gamer focused and thus there were more first party games being released that I was interested in.  So my Cube collection at the same time was bigger.  My Wii game collection isn't small because I hate games but because the Wii library is really weak.

Hm, let's see, of the fourteen Wii games I've bought, four of them were third party titles. I suppose that's less than 1/3rd of my Wii collection.

Nintendo-published titles:
Endless Ocean
Mario Kart Wii
Mario Party 8
Mario Strikers Charged
Mario Super Sluggers
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Wii Play
Wii Sports

Crappy Third-party titles:
Boom Blox (sold it)
House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Thrilleville: Off The Rails

100%?  I think your exaggerating a bit....do you not remember all of the Mario whoring?  Mario Party up the whazoo, all the mario sports titles?  Sure Mario Strikers was good and watching Luigi dunk over Carmelo Anthony was funny but for the most parts those games were not for core gamers.  By the way when does another Mario Party come around?

Yeah, that was the period where Ian complained about seeing nothing but first party cash cow milk residue; he didn't buy games back then either.

Another Mario Party will arrive after Motion Plus is established.  For now, Mario Party 8 is the most successful game in the series, and therefore will not get an immediate Rayman Rabbid Balance Board sequel.

The game is pretty meh, there's better games available if you don't absolutely NEED old Nintnedo IPs attached to every game you buy.

Also... *slap* GET DE BLOB YOU LAZY BUM! There's plenty of games on the Wii that aren't just "okayish".
