"Coming out of Nintendo’s E3 conference, many people were disappointed by the lack of surprises and the supposed lack of good launch games. It seems to be a divisive issue, with some gamers excited for the Wii U games while others remain severely underwhelmed. I personally remain cautiously optimistic about the Wii U. While I agree that the Wii U launch lineup is missing that surprising, must-buy first-party title everyone was expecting Retro to make, the launch games are still quite strong.
Historically, consoles have launched with either few games, bad games, or both. Compared to the PS3 and 360’s launch games, the Wii U is looking pretty good. The question is, is it enough to make the Wii U successful with both the hardcore and casual audiences when it’s launching during the twilight of the current console generation?"
