Gone With the Wii: Nintendo’s Output

This is something you’ll see discussed on this week’s Dual Wielding in greater detail, bu t I thought it was an interesting enough discussion to warrant at least a poll on the site.

Essentially the question boils down to which Nintendo did you prefer, the ones who showed up for the first half of the generation or the ones who finished out the Wii?

Below you will find a list of games, roughly divided between 2006-2009 (The first 3 years) and 2010-2012 (the last 3 years) and a poll asking which era had the better output.


The first half is just a bit longer because the Wii launched in 2006, but was only on the market for 6 weeks with 3 games. So technically first 3 years and 6 weeks!
