Submission + - Why are there so few good games for the Wii?

flibbidyfloo writes: According to Gamerankings.com, only 15 Wii games have achieved an average rating of 85% or higher. By comparison, the PS3, which has as a similar number of ranked titles, has 42 titles better than 85%. The Xbox 360, with over 500 ranked titles, boasts 56 games rated this high. Perhaps more telling, the Gamecube and its 450 or so ranked titles claims the grand prize with 62 reaching this top echelon. I'm counting a game as "ranked" if it has at least 10 published reviews.

Is it the controllers, which offer both enhanced and restrictive options for developers? Or maybe all the best developers avoid the Wii for some reason, like its relatively low processing and graphics power, or its image as a "kiddie" platform? I'm curious what both devs and gamers have to say, so maybe the /. community can help me out...
