#1 The gamepad has all the same functions as any core controller on top of touch screen options for even more gameplay potential. The only detriment might be its size, but that's pretty much the only drawback.

#2 The first party games, which have thus far shown, as a majority rule, a great deal of replay-ability and longevity compared to many other games on the market, even ones that were much more hyped up.

#3 Specific third party games. Many of the ports sucked, but there are a few superb gems like Deus Ex Director's Cut and The Wonderful 101 that were truly done gloriously on the Wii U.

#4 The backwards compatibility with the Wii being native.
Some sites and reviewers downplay this and pass it off as a non-gamer-important feature because the others do it, but I say I'd much rather see my console support its own lineup of games over the ability to play DVD movies.
I bought my console for gaming; I don't see it as a bad thing for it to support that purpose as fully as possible, even if it means giving up a few non-gaming features.

#5 NO FEES FOR ONLINE PLAY.
And the online is still pretty damned smooth despite that.[especially if you use Wired internet]

Well said, pressed disagree by accident, stupid touch screen phone. Lol

No worries, gave him an agree for ya lol. You know, not enough people appreciate Wii U's free online service. I appreciate being able to play Mario Kart with friends for no extra charge.

I only need one reason to buy a wii u but nintendo don't seem to want my money.

1, F-ZERO.

randomass171831d ago

Pffft, I would never buy a console for just one game, not even a Sony console. Gotta have a plethora of games to keep me interested, and Wii U has me hooked! Mario, Smash and Zelda are great. And I'm looking forward to the next Metroid.

Fast racing neo coming from Shinen on Wii U, interesting how will it turn out, first one was a good game and a good alternative to F-zero

My top 5 reasons why I got mine
1. Zelda WW HD
2. X
3. Mario Kart 8
4. Super Smash Bros.
5. Bayonetta 2

All games, and there's at least 10 more games I want to play on the Wii U, some of which are currently released.
