Xenoblade Chronicles
The Wii was pitifully neglected in its final year – at least, it was by all the non-shovelware companies. With only a handful of worthy contenders, Xenoblade takes the award for best Wii game due to its engaging gameplay, outstanding art direction (for a 480p system), and beautiful story (if you dedicate enough time to see it through). And to think… if it wasn’t for the aggressive demand from fans, Xenoblade may never have seen American shores. I guess we have ourselves to thank for the Wii’s last hurrah, because Nintendo was more than willing to abandon it.
