Game of the Year 2011: Wii Exclusive

Did you ever notice how the Wii smells of old people?

2011 has been a year of transition for Nintendo. Their 3DS handheld launched and they spent much of the year fighting premature proclamations of its failure. They also announced the successor to their amazingly successful home console, the Wii U.

Next year will see them try to consolidate what exactly that console is in the minds of the press and the public but what its announcement meant for the current generation of Nintendo home consoles was a slow down in the release schedule.

We saw only four games which we thought worthy of nominations this year, two of which were Kirby games. In a peculiar quirk of Nintendo of Europe’s antiquated attitude to global release schedules, our Wii Exclusive Game of the Year 2011 was released everywhere else in the world during 2010. We’ve awarded the Wii Game of the Year to Kirby’s Epic Yarn.
