But, I wish I went, is past tense. 

I wish I went, I wish I had gone, are often interchangeable

I think it depends on the context:

I wish I went skiing today - gitsem

I wish I went skiing last winter - gitseydim

In English I guess you wish in the past tense even if you want it to happen now. But in Turkish it is not so. The wish mode -se/sa doesnt have time or a tense in Turkish. It is timeless. But you can use past tense after it and that way you can express the time. You cant use other tenses after or before it.
