Still have a Wii lying around? Get the most out of it!
Remember the Wii? It was one of the most popular consoles of all time and the one that propelled motion gaming to the mainstream. Even though Wii U, its successor, is not exactly popular, there are many homes that still have a Wii lying around, and Engadget gives us some very good suggestions on how to revitalise the console.
Here’s a small part to get you started:
Leverage the library
The Wii U may be facing a drought of AAA releases, but its predecessor was flush with them. The Wii has a killer collection of first-party titles, including two Legend of Zelda games, both Super Mario Galaxy titles, the fantastic Metroid Prime Trilogy and even the return of the Donkey Kong Country franchise. Not good enough? There’s a wide assortment of third-party games to choose from, too: Games like House of the Dead: Overkill, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Okami, A Boy and his Blob and Sonic Colors have plenty to offer, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you neglected your Wii in favor of the previous generation’s powerhouses, now’s a great time to see what you missed.
Protip: It’s no secret that the Wii is a beefed-up GameCube. Find yourself a wired controller and memory card and pilfer that library too.
