I like whenever someone makes a "must have" list of Wii U games, they list out pretty much every Wii U game. While the Wii U has a good list of games, none are really system sellers for me; they all have the presentation of a child's game. Maybe by 2015 that will change.

MNGamer-N2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

Haha funny. I didn't even scratch the surface of what's available for WiiU. These are just my favorite games for the system, the ones that I bought and enjoyed, and think are worth the money.

And when "must have" lists like this are long, and each of these games has the some of the highest review scores of the last year, then this list is no bullshit.

Obviously the style of Nintendo games is not for you. That's ok. But for someone who is more open, and maybe someone who just bought a WiiU who is looking for a game or two, this list is a good start.

If you think that's all that is available for the WiiU, you aren't paying attention to the console.

Metacritic has 114 Wii U games listed to date, and those aren't even all the games available for Wii U (Metacritic can't track them all).

MN-Gamer listed 22 games. Last I checked, 22 isn't the same as 114.

But it's all right, not everyone knows math.

Don't worry, everything will be fine. Now go back to your troll cave and give a hug to your troll mommy. <3

Seriously? 0_____o

Why so many? Tell me you're including your old Wii games and old Virtual Console titles or something...

hduce2592d ago

I have over 40 games for my Wii U. I thought I was the man until you said you have over 100. Keep in mind I also have a Xbox One, PS4, and a gaming PC.

Flungsomepoo2592d ago

No wii games! Just wii u VC and ports plus new games.
I don't no why I buy so many. I only play a few of them.

Every Bayonetta fan has to try 101. It really is the most under rated game on Wii U by far. One of the greats so far for this gen.

mydyingparadiselost2592d ago

I love how they put a new twist on the Bayo style gameplay. Instead of being Bayo and having to do crowd control on enemies in 101 YOU are the crowd and the enemy is crowd controlling you. Such a great game and your right, completely under rated.
