Welcome to this episode of RPGGamer Top 5s, and this time we're going to do the top 5 RPG's on the Nintendo Wii.
The Wii, which according to the official style guide should just be called the Wii, although it is commonly and unofficially called the Nintendo Wii is a home video game console released by Nintendo on November 19, 2006. As a seventh-generation console, the Wii competed with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3. Nintendo states that its console targets a broader demographic than that of the two others. As of the first quarter of 2016, the Wii led its generation over the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in worldwide sales, with more than 101 million units sold; in December 2009, the console broke the sales record for a single month in the United States.
The Wii introduced the Wii Remote controller, which can be used as a handheld pointing device and which detects movement in three dimensions.
The Wii succeeded the GameCube; and early models are fully backward-compatible with all GameCube games and most accessories.
The Wii was based around older, but more economical hardware, so wasn't considered as cutting edge compared to the Playstation 3, and X-Box 360.
Retro RPG: Hackmaster: Players Handbook and Games Masters Guide
HackMaster is a fantasy role-playing game produced by Kenzer & Company. It began as a fictional game, a parody of Dungeons & Dragons played by the characters of the Knights of the Dinner Table comic strip by Jolly R. Blackburn. The characters in the comic began playing fictional HackMaster 3rd Edition, which was updated and published in 2001 as a numerously revised 4th edition. It has been hinted the name of the game was originally changed for copyright reasons.
The current 5th edition has removed most of the parody aspects, and contains game mechanics written from scratch in order to avoid any intellectual property problems.
