Apparently, 1262 games were released for the Nintendo Wii in North America since its launch in 2006. NintendoAge forum user NintendoTwizer has acquired them all (starting from scratch in 2015 no less). That’s impressive, but you might be wondering—why the hell would anyone bother to do this with the Wii? NintendoTwizer explains:
The Wii is a fascinating system. It sold over 100 million units. It was an insane success for Nintendo. No other Nintendo home system including the original Nintendo could touch it in sales. Think about that. Everyone had one (including my grandma). For me, I felt it would be an interesting challenge. The Wii was unexplored territory. Not many people have gone for a complete set. Yes, I can hear it now… so much shovel ware. To that I say sure, there’s a ton of great games and a ton of shovelware, but that’s cool. The crappy games tell an interesting story as well. I don’t know how many times I came across a random Wii game and said to myself… “what the hell, they made this for the system?”. That was part of the fun. I personally had never collected for a system this new. Go into any Walmart and you will still see a few Wii games on the shelf. I also had never collected for a set that had soooo many games. With a 1000+ unique titles. This set is four times the size of the N64 set.
He even put together a video of the top 40 rarest Wii games (how did I miss the Chuck E. Cheese’s Super Collection?).
