Why is it that so many great Nintendo franchises from the Nintendo 64 era have gone downhill? 1080 set a new benchmark for snowboarding on its release for the Nintendo 64, yet its GameCube entry proved to be little more than a mildly entertaining arcade-focussed snowboarding game. It felt rushed and didn't come near to reaching the greatness of the N64 original. On the Wii we want a deep trick system, online play, online leaderboards and Mii support.
Pilotwings has to make a comeback. The fact that it was last seen on the Nintendo 64 is a crying shame, and it's one of the classic Nintendo series that we'd love to see on Wii. The Wii's motion control would be a perfect fit for the often serene gameplay and the little console packs more than enough graphical grunt to give us spectacular views. As a game for casuals it's perfect, with exploration and light challenges being the focus, but for hardcore gamers Nintendo could include plenty of tricky flight challenges to get stuck into.
