The Nintendo Wii had many cheap games released.  Companies produced bad games after every movie or tv show.  There was an abundance of these terrible cheap games.  On the other hand, some games did not sell well making them valuable and very rare.  Here is a list of the most valuable and rare Nintendo Wii games.

New Price: $300
Used Price: $30
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn was released at a time when players in the West had not heard of the series.  It wasn't until Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon for the Nintendo DS that the series took off.  If the series was released today, it would definitely sell more copies.


6. Fritz Chess
