Love my WiiU. Mind you, there’s been the occasional game drought since it was released, and I don’t have THAT many games for it. They’re pricey. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
**NintendoLand **- Bundled with my system at launch. Better game than you might think. The minigames are quite deep. The Donkey Kong Crash Course? Has FOUR levels, not one. The fourth one is quite challenging. If THAT’s not enough for you, there’s a special achievement if you can beat the first level while skipping 40 bananas. GOOD LUCK. No doubt I’ve sunk at least 40 hours into just that one minigame. Chase Mario and Sweet Day make for some really hilarious multiplayer fun. All the minigames are good, really… the octopus one didn’t hold my attention very long, admittedly.
**ZombiU **- the other game I got at launch. Terrifying, extremely terrifying, and did I mention, this game will scare you to death! I was shrieking like a little girl. And I was playing on Chicken Mode.
New Super Mario Bros. U - Pretty much what you’d expect from a NSMB game. Good, great at times.
Lego City Undercover - AWESOME! 10/10 Loved every minute of the 70 hours I spent getting this game to 100%. Ending of the game is EPIC and not to be missed.
**Pikmin 3 **- Great, amazing and fun game. My first time playing a Pikmin game. Loved the strategy aspect of it, beautiful graphics. Good replay value. I beat it, then felt obliged to start over and beat it again more efficiently.
Super Mario 3D World - Really enjoyable, seems like a kindred spirit to Super Mario 3D Land for 3DS. Love the cat powerup. It’s a bigger game than you might think, originally. I think I have uncovered the final level (though haven’t unlocked it yet). The difficulty keeps ramping up.
Disney Infinity - only Cross-Platform game I’ve gotten, so far. It’s pretty good, though rather expensive with all the different playsets and characters you will feel motivated to buy. The graphics are okay, the voice actors are not the originals, though some are above-average “soundalikes” others are just annoyingly bad.
I have a few indie games from the eShop, and most of those 30 cent Virtual Console games they were doing last year. But these are my retail releases, and really, I haven’t bought a game yet that I didn’t really like. But seven good retail games has seen me through the first year of the console’s life - not feeling any urges to go buy a PS4 or XBone so far.
