Nintendo Wii U: 10 Reasons You Need To Get One

WC: Now that Christmas is more than a month in the past, I believe it to be acceptable to moan and complain about what you did and didn’t get. Seriously, it’s okay now. With that being said, you all probably have a list of things that you were hoping to find under your tree, whether it be an iPad, the complete series of Lost on Bluray, or a highly coveted Shake-Weight. I’m here to tell you that all of those cravings and sought-for items aren’t what you need to be wishing for. No. Instead, my friends, you should have asked dear old Santa Claus for Nintendo’s newest home console, the Wii U.

Not convinced? Don’t worry: I’ll tell you why the Nintendo’s confusing little system should make its way into your home as soon as possible. Here are my top 10 reasons as to why the Nintendo Wii U should be the apple of your eye. (Wii U)

The Wiiu is amazing and I am really really really addicted to mine. Ninja Gaiden 3 online coop and fights are awesome and that game is great. NSMBU is amazing , it's a must buy just for the challenge mode which is something every mario game needs from now on , like the challenges in mario kart DS . Nintendo is awesome especially with friends.

I have plent of games to play on my Wiiu right now but am really looking forward to Lego City , Rayman Legends , Aliens colonial marines and Monster Hunter Ultimate.
Those games will earn my wiiu legendary status !

I'll get one eventually. I'd like to get a WiiU when they ship with all the OS and software upgrades.

I'm thinking Summer would be a good time.

Wii U is great fun. Everyone in our family loves it, and it gets played every single day.

just 1 reason why every human wants one is the internet browser . . . . . . thats it . . if u dont got one, either not enough funds, or not enough funds . end of story

I'm sorry, what?

Maybe if it were the first gaming console with a browser, and PCs, tablets, and smartphones weren't so prevalent, you might have a point.

As it stands, my PS3, Vita, PC, laptop, and phone ALL have browsers. I would NOT be buying a Wii U for the web browser.

NOT bothering to look through however many pages they put the stupid list on, since they're doing that one-item-per-page crap. If it were me- and this IS talking about why I need to get one- then there's only one reason:

GAMES.

That is an area in which the Wii U is improving. Bayonetta 2 was, until Nintendo Direct, the only thing really interesting me. But with the addition of SMTxFire Emblem, and Project X(it remains to be seen whether or not this is truly Xenoblade 2, so I won't be calling it such) and the level of gaming I'm likely to get out of those, my interest has gone up considerably.

I've never been the biggest fan of Mario, NEVER played a Zelda game, not too interested in Metroid or StarFox. Frankly put: even as a kid, Nintendo's first party stuff wasn't all THAT appealing to me. And it's like Microsoft's situation with the 360: if the main staples of their IPs haven't interested me yet, new iterations of the same aren't likely to change that.

But some of the things I'm seeing are changing that. Interesting that Nintendo's doing with a brand new console that's just months old what Microsoft isn't, despite having a much larger library.

Edit:

@pedro: which part is a troll? The part where I don't automatically love a system that's just now starting to amass games I like?

@bully: None of that means anything to me. The Wii U is late to the party on the browser front. It's not the best browser out there, and it wouldn't be a reason all by itself to buy the system, regardless. So no, it's NOT a reason every human should want it.

Sorry. Well, I'm not.

dude . your ps3 has browsing speeds faster than the wiiU? and in the comfort of an almost 7 inch Game-Pad ? . . (: . you can just turn the screens brightness down on the wiiU game-pad, take it with you to bed, surf the web at top speeds. call it your new cuddle buddy .. .

I can give 20, but the point is: nintendo loyal fans (as me) will buy it no matter what. Gamers in general will get it if good exclusives are released and haters will hate on it even if it comes gold plated.

Logic (and good reasons) can not change the gamers minds lol...

there is no reason no to get a wiiU if all had the spare change . regardless of exclusives huh .
