“Wow” is pretty much all you can say about this one. Since its inception back in 2006, there have been over 1,200 Nintendo Wii games (1,262 to be exact). That’s no slouch with all things considering the MSRP of video games these days. However, someone has managed to collect every Wii game ever made and posted photos of the accomplishment on the NintendoAge forums.
But that’s not all. Not only has user NintendoTwizer over at the NintendoAge forums collected every Wii game, but he has also all 4 colors of the Wii console AND all 12 Wii-mote colors as well! Talk about a true fan. In the post, he discussed why he collected Wii games as well as his history with the console:
Let’s start at the beginning, the launch of the Wii. The morning of the midnight launch I called Walmart, it was around noon and I ask if the system would be available and how many they had in stock. The clerk said yes, they had around 20ish in stock and there was already around 20ish people waiting outside the store. Well crap, I ran to my car, speed to the store and jumped in line. I had no time to plan, grab lunch or anything. I was in it for the long haul, even if that meant standing on a sidewalk for 12 hours. I counted about 23 people in line in front of me. I gave myself about 50/50 chance of going home with a Wii. An hour later a Walmart clerk came out to where everyone was standing. He had tickets in his hand, each one with a number. If you got a ticket you could come back at midnight and pick up your Wii. Tickets were getting dispensed, no problem, until they came to the lady with five kids about three people in front of me. Now she was putting up a stink “I need six tickets, one for me and one for each one of my kids”. WTF?? I know this ladies game, she’s a scalper. After the Wii was released they sold out everywhere for months, unless you wanted to pay $400-$600 on ebay. I and everyone behind me was about to riot, but thankfully Walmart had the common sense to limit it to one ticket per family. She was pissed and I was happy, as I got the second to last ticket. I went back at midnight, picked up Zelda, Excite Truck and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz. I ended up playing games until I finally passed out at around three in the morning.
