Don’t let the release date of the NX make you trigger shy, because the Wii U has quite the line up in its five year life cycle, and here are just a few.
Two of those are remakes so I didn't buy...replace the Zelda remakes with Tokyo Mirage Sessions for the unique experience, or Pikmin 3
Wind Waker on the Wii U is still a fun game to play and the use of the gamepad for inventory was convenient; however, I do agree with the other two games you listed. If I had to add, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze is a lot of fun.
Smash Bros. is a game my friends and I will always play. It's such a fun multiplayer game
Tokyo Is okay so far, but I need to spend more time with it! Been moving, so have not spent much time gaming the past month. :(
I'd add New Super Mario Bros U (easily the best in the "New" Super Mario Bros series), Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Super Mario 3D World and The Wonderful 101 to this list.
Edit: holy hell, how could I forget Mario Kart 8... I've already put around 150 hours on that title alone.
make wiiu $149
Not even worth it at that price, with such a tiny library of games available (and very few notable ones).
Theres actually a ton of really excellent games buddy Ive got the stack in front of me. You've missed out on loads of amazing games, that's the reality of whats happening here lol.
Huge library compared to ps4/Xbox one? Or ps3/Xbox 360 because either way it's not comparable
Some of the best games on wiiu are remaster
I'll be sure to grab one once they become scarce and are that low
DKC Tropical Freeze
Super Mario 3D World
Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker
Mario Kart 8
The Wii U has some seriously awesome games!
I hope they port Xenoblade to Switch.
There are rumors about Xenoblade X getting a Switch port.
I'm not interested on that one, seeing how I've already played it plenty on my Wii U, and finished it (but I'm nowhere near completing it, not even close).
I would love an HD remaster of the original Xenoblade Chronicles, though. What a masterpiece.
Yeah I'm not too keen on the Wii U ports myself, especially considering they haven't been out too long (and still look nice) Wii games would be better (if they updated them)
I skipped the WiiU so I'll probably be down to get a few ports of it's best games.
The WiiU has easily as many essential games as both PS4 and/or XB1, easy. Yes, perhaps limited generic filler was released in between said essential titles put the chavs off buying a WiiU, but that's their loss, not making it mine. I could give you 20 titles exclusive to the WiiU which could easily be regarded in the top 100 videogames of all time as it stands today.
I'm still picking up gems from Wii and GameCube. I'm actually pretty close to owning every Wii U retail title I wanted (I have 40+ retail Wii U games) which is actually pretty sad.
@higgins I think it's pretty sad cause I'm still picking up GameCube and Wii gems from 10-15 years ago, while I won't be able to do that with the Wii U. But idk my current top 5 would prob be smash bros, the CoDs, Zombi U, Pikmin 3, and watch dogs. Though I enjoyed the assassins creeds, star fox, the marios, mass effect, xenoblade, paper Mario, etc, a lot of the core titles to own. Yourself?
Not sad at all. Most PS4/XB1 games are forgotten the moment you complete them, best left in the past. The WiiU games you mention will always be worth revisiting. I'm pretty much in the same boat as you. Every WiiU retail title I've wanted I now own. Care to give me your top 5 WiiU games?
