About me A few lines about me and my collection.
I didn't get a Wii right away — well, it was sold out everywhere — but only six months after its launch. On the first day, my wife and I played hours ofand . The next day, I brought home a copy of and with that, I knew that I loved this tiny, white console.
Fast forward to 2012 and I've played over two hundred games on my Wii, half of them being retail games and the other half being WiiWare and VirtualConsole titles. Later that year, I've gifted myself a Nintendo Wii U and my Wii got stored away in a cupboard. While I kept my Wii games around, they didn't really see much playtime the following years.
With Nintendo Switch close to being launched and me, not being sure if I should jump in or not, I dug out my box of Wii games for nostalgia's sake. While browsing through the covers, I realized that it's been out for 10 years already and that it one might — I know, I know, big discussion if one really could do or not — call it retro gaming now.
In order to celebrate, I decided to use my existing tech of bigboxcollection.com for bringing my Wii collection online.

Tip Jar Got a spare box? Or some change?
Honestly, this site is mainly for my own pleasure. Getting my games up here, ready to be clicked through at any time is something I'm really fond of. Having sources like MobyGames, The Legacy or Wikipedia is nice and I'm of course a heavy user myself of their offers, but in regard of clicking through my own collection and seeing the game boxes in 3D, simple cover scans just don't cut it.
And that just might be your cue. What if you're a fan too? What if you wanna see a specific title that's not yet in my collection?
Well, there's two options: a) wait, till said game finds its way here on its own or b) help me out getting it. For the latter, there's also two possibilities:
Wii Box Blog It's all about the coverart but then again, it's also all about keeping my collection up and alive. Therefore, a log of my hunt for further Wii games is needed!
Underdog Revolution!It's over 10 years now and with the upcoming release of Nintendo Switch that's two generations of home consoles following up Nintendo's 2006 Revolution, the Nintendo Wii. To me, it was a return from PC gaming back to consoles and boy, did I enjoy its six year run.
Also, while the Wii did conquer the world, many of its games were sadly overlooked by many. Here, I have got all 111 games of my collection on a virtual shelf waiting to be remembered and rediscovered and trust me, there's tons of true underdogs on this platform worth checking out.

Games On My WishlistThere are of course a handful of games that I would like to add to my collection and the shelf below is more or less my hunting list made public. If you've got one of these — and of course games that aren't listed here at all! — and are willing to split,
