Kelsey is very pretty. Very pretty and very wrong, in this case.

Wii U was a great concept, its just too bad there wasn't enough horsepower in it to run multiple Gamepad controllers.

The WiiU gets played DAILY at the house, by the kids. But when a new game came out I would be very interested in them.


*Watching my five year old beat Splatoon, which isn't a joke at ALL at the end, was amazing.

I'd say that's a perfect list.

Super Mario 3D World
Bayonetta 2
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Nintendo Land
Yoshi's Woolly World
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE
Wonderful 101
Super Mario Maker
Splatoon
Mario Kart 8
Pikmin 3
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

If I'd add anything, it'd be the NES Remix Pack with NES Remix 1 and 2,
Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate, and Hyrule warriors.

Xenoblade Chronicles X was incredible.

Seriosuly, that Splatoon final boss is intense! After 10 minutes you are treated to an EXCELLENT song, maybe the best final boss fight song since.... I dunno.

But when that final song comes on the game really ramps up the difficulty.

Honestly guys, if you've never played Splatoon you are missing out on that final song.

Or you can skip to around 10:45 in the video above if you want to hear it. It's a great moment in gaming.

Spot on list, Metal Jesus. The video was great and I believe that the WiiU will be looked at fondly for the games it had as much as critics will look at it negatively for the third-parties that lacked releases. There are a lot of good games on the console and I can say, without a doubt, that it was easily the most played of my consoles until Switch was released. Nintendo's great at developing a unique product that can bring different experiences to the table, and I will gladly take that quirky innovation over similar platforms that get the same games (yes, I talking about you PS4 and XBox One).

The GCN used to be my favorite console next to the TG16. But as of now, its the WiiU. So many creative games on it.

I think you're all missing the plot here. This isn't a list of the best games, this is a list of the only good games and very close to being a list of the only games.

There were 700 games released for the Wii U...and almost 200 of those were physical.

Quite you. Rommel has an agenda to push and he's going to push it.

Hey, Mr. Smartass

How many good games were on the SNES? NES? Its what, maybe 30. Sure you can stretch that out to 50 if your a masochist but most consoles libraries are not good save a few.

The WiiU is worth buying, in fact its a no brainer. Its dam good And just like the GNC, in 5 years everyone will be all like...muh underrated. Prices so high, much sought after.
