10 Wii U Games You Should Play

Did somebody just give you a Wii U? Are you wondering what to do with it? Paste runs down ten Wii U exclusives you should play on your new system. (Earthbound, Lego: City Undercover, Pikmin 3, Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii U, ZombiU)

It is Nintendo's destiny to be absorbed by Sony.

LOL. You're going to piss people off with that comment.
KakashiHotake  +   586d ago
LOL I know, that's the beauty of it.

So in other words, you're being a troll?
KakashiHotake  +   586d ago
@NihonjinChick, now that you mention it, perhaps I did just troll. I think that's my 1st time and didn't even realize it. lol

They really should just become a third party developer and give games to everyone. Their consoles are pretty much laughable now.
Dont get me wrong, I love my Wii U, but there are no games

Nerdman says Nintendo consoles are laughable.
He has a Nintendo console.
OMG.

So, it's not actually the consoles themselves, but the games then?
Exactly.

There are games.
There are most definitely games.
There's just little third-party support.

The issue is the lack of third-party support, due to the extremely weak launch. Until there are systems, there is going to be very weak third-party support.
It could very well be a Gamecube situation all over again, with the system only surviving on that which Nintendo themselves have a hand in.

But no. Their consoles aren't "laughable now". They had the highest selling system just last generation and, while it certainly was the weakest console (much like now), it had a large list of quality exclusives and was an overall very good system for the hardcore gamer.

I hate when people treat the present as if it were a constant.

3 of the listed games aren't even exclusive to the Wii U..
Metallox  +   586d ago
I think you can hardly find today a SNES copy of Earthbound,
2muchw1nn1ng  +   586d ago
But they're talking about the digital version. And anyone can download an SNES emu and play the game with lots of customization in controls, graphics etc.
Metallox  +   586d ago
Dude, that's not even legal. Of course, I hate the fact the game (and many SNES games on the Virtual Console) it's very expensive, but playing the game on an emulator it's not tne way.
SlapHappyJesus  +   586d ago
"it's not the way"

Neither is charging an unfair price for a game from multiple generations prior, just because the game is not available to the average person.
Until these companies learn to charge fair prices for games from previous generations, I will gladly continue to emulate these titles.
Especially when emulation brings with it all of the advantages mentioned above.

Seriously, Zombie U and Lego City are some great games.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is also Amazing, Wii U owners need to play it
Dannycr  +   585d ago
Why is Earthbound on that list? You can play that game on a lot of consoles. I love the game, but it is a waste of space for a real WiiU only game like Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
