#9: No More Heroes
When the motion-control concept for the Wii was announced, thousands of fanboy brains immediately gravitated towards one franchise; Star Wars. Almost two years have passed, and that dream has yet to be fulfilled. While LucasArts is working overtime to produce The Force Unleashed and Clone Wars Lightsaber duels — they may have been beaten to the punch by UbiSoft and Grasshopper Manufacture, the publisher-developer team behind the stylish action title No More Heroes. With a dorky protagonist, a Lightsaber-esque weapon, buckets of blood, and lots of inspiration from icons of pop-culture like Kill Bill, Star Wars, and 8-bit gaming, No More Heroes is made for the hardcore gamer nerd in all of us.
