Everyone has an opinion about what makes a good game. You've got one, we've got one (or several, as there are several of us here), and the reviewers, they all have their own preferences, too. Sometimes, however, those opinions all just seem to coincide, and then we know a game is truly something sp...

We're still celebrating the Wii's anniversary over here at Nintendo Wii Fanboy, and now that the console has been out for a year, we're curious about what games people own.
