The Wii series is one of Nintendo's best-selling series, and one of the most popular series of all time.

All the games have control schemes that simulate real life activities with the Wii Remote and the Wii U GamePad (except for the Wii Fit sub-series, which mainly uses the Wii Balance Board), such as Wii Sports, which makes use of the Wii Remote to simulate sports.

All the games feature Mii integration (except for Wii Chess).
