Gamnesia: "Of course, little of that has to do with the Wii U itself, but rather the games being great. Nintendo has always made really great games, so what about the Wii U really makes them better anyways? Honestly, it is the complete package. As an example, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is just a lot more alive than Donkey Kong Country Returns. How is that possible? Because the game can now be displayed in HD and due to the extra processing power afforded it than the previous game did not. Both benefits that come directly from the Wii U.
This still hasn’t even touched on my absolute favorite feature – the GamePad. I know many don’t understand the appeal, but myself as a father of two have really come to appreciate what it offers me. Right off the bat I can play games I normally wouldn’t be able to when the children are home, because Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag can be played remotely. Just toss on a pair of headphones and I am golden as the kids watch a movie on Netlfix. It’s a feature I have only grown to appreciate more as time as moved on. What about playing multiplayer games? I’ve had my friend Eric over for some Call of Duty: Ghosts sessions and outside of creating more precise controls in general compared to other consoles, we each have our own screen to play on locally. It allows both of us to play to our maximum potential (even if we do flip a coin over who gets to use the TV). At the end of the day, this is still far better than splitting my TV screen in half."
