The Wii, Where Does It Stand Today?

The Wii just recently celebrated it’s second birthday, but how far has it actually come since then. Since it’s release, there have been only a handful of games catered to the hard core. The most noticable of which are The Legend of Zelda: Twighlight Princess, Metroid Prime: Corruption, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy, and Mario Kart Wii.
