One year ago, Nintendo kicked off a new generation with the release of the Wii U. Now that Sony and Microsoft have joined it with new hardware, it's time for us to start planning retirement parties for the previous generation of consoles. We've already looked back at the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but now it's time for the Joystiq staff to recount some of its favorite experiences had on the Nintendo Wii.

Of course, these are just a few of our favorites. Share your favorites in the comments below – that is, if you're not too busy ruling the world as Mario and Friends in their latest adventure.
