Top Ten Best Wii U Games Released So Far

"Yes, yes. We know. "Wii U actually has ten games, much more ten that are actually worth playing!?111" Oh, Internet, you never fail to amuse us.While you're at it, post videos of the Harlem Shake and Keyboard Cat. They're just as overdone to us.

In all seriousness, for the abuse that Nintendo's Wii U has received (and a good portion of it is deserved), one part that we at SuperPhillip Central just can't wrap our brains around is the idea that the system is lacking games. Obviously if you are an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 owner, many of the titles you've already played. However, a fair amount of them are worthwhile, even for those who already own a 360 or PS3. This list of the ten best Wii U games that are currently out should illustrate why we think Nintendo's struggling system has got the games. It just needs the sales," writes SuperPhillip Central. (Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition, Lego: City Undercover, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo, NintendoLand, Trine 2: Director's Cut, Wii U, ZombiU)

LOL, when I read the title of this article, the first sentence was what immediately flashed through my head.

Some people fail to realize that just because the Wii U has ports of some older games, it doesn't mean that those games aren't any good. For a person who maybe doesn't own a 360 or PS3, should we be telling them that Arkham City, ME3 or NFS: Most Wanted are crap games that shouldn't be played?

And games like Super Mario Brothers, Lego City and Trine 2 are indeed fabulous games. I am having a blast with those three currently.

I don't think anyone fails to realize that, I just think they rationalize it as invalid. Like it's pretty unlikely that someone would buy a Wii U at launch / this early, yet doesn't own an 360 or PS3. Transversely, you can easily obtain an Xbox + whatever port you wanted for less than just buying a Wii U.

Just going off Gamestop to be easy...

PS3 = About $250+
Xbox = $200+
Batman GOTY = $20
---
$220 - $270+

vs

Wii U = $300
Armored = $40

Sort of hard to call that redeeming, thus it rarely gets mentioned / cast in a bad light.

If you have a ps3 or 360.. The only games on the Wii U for the core are ZombieU, Monster Hunter, and New Mario bros...at its current price point it's just not worth getting if you own the other consoles. Give it a year or two. The next Zelda, Xenoblades, Pikman, Mario, smash bros, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Wii U will eventually have a legitimate top ten.

i hope undercover releases on PS3 one day, it looks pretty cool

Most likely won't. It has things from Nintendo IP's and was published by Nintendo. While it's not impossible, it just seems highly unlikely that they will obtain the rights / remove the IP's / etc.

Top 3 no particular order

1-Lego City
2-NFSMWU
3-Trine 2

I still need to try ZombieU as all I've played is a bit of NintendoLand and Monster Hunter. Definitely need to get New Super Mario bros since it's been...ages since I last played a Mario game.
