Convince me why I should buy a Wii U

Post by Knuckles on Sun Sep 01, 2013 6:34 pm

I have followed the Wii U ever since the announcement of Project Café, I read NL every day, and I'm not very interested in the Wii U console itself. What has me interested are the upcoming games.

So I'm asking you guys to try and convince me why to buy the system besides the games. What makes the Wii U a better console than the PS4 and XBOX One? I'm asking you guys because you own the system, and will give it to me straight instead of through a news standpoint.

Thank you.

I for one really enjoy the Wii U. The GamePad is a really great controller and it's very handy even when you're just using it for a map. The interface is also pretty good, especially Miiverse.

Like you said though, the games are what make a console and some great ones are coming out this fall. Sonic Lost World, Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101, and DKC Tropical Feeze just to name a few.

Well, it really is the games with the Wii U. I may not be 100% worth having one right now, but to name some great titles on Wii U or coming to Wii U...

NSMBU
Nintendo Land
NSLU
LEGO City Undercover
Pikmin 3
The Wonderful 101
Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
Sonic Lost World(in glorious HD)
Shovel Knight
Cloudberry Kingdom
Little Inferno
Game and Wario
Earthbound
Super Smash Bros. Wii U
Rayman Legends
Mighty No. 9(I have 100% faith in it reaching it's stretch goal)
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
Unannounced Wii U Zelda
Super Mario 3D World
Mario Kart 8
Yarn Yoshi

And that isn't even all of it. There will be many more games announced soon probably, and I think the Wii U has a bright future. Maybe after the price drop it'll be worth it to you though.

EDIT: Believe me when I say the GamePad has to be my favorite controller ever. As in, everything just seems to be right where I want it. Not just because of the awesome screen in the middle.

I see what you did there with Sonic Lost World(In Glorious HD).
You know I can't resist anything Sonic related.

Also, to add a few I forgot yesterday, BIT.TRIP Runner 2, Pokémon Rumble U, X(Monolith Soft's game), Shin Megami Tensei Vs. Fire Emblem, and Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed, which from what I've heard, is over 9000 times better than the 3DS version Wink

@ KiDasharus Like I told True, I'll wait for a price drop before I double dip on Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. And I need to 100% complete that piece of garbage before I play a superior version.

For the gamepad alone I'd recommend it. The controller is a love letter to the handhelds of old, yet it brings a delightfully large amount of new gameplay opportunities to the table. The shape and contour of the device is delightful, the motion controls are responsive, and virtual console games are easily playable on the gamepad alone. It's a brilliant, pleasant to hold controller. Smile

@Happy - Exactly. I was shocked at how much I enjoyed the GamePad.
When I ordered my Wii U, I was really only interested in the future games. I thought the GamePad was nice, but it wasn't too interesting to me. However, once I got to hold the GP in my hand and try it for myself, I loved it. It's so unique and comfortable. Plus, it's super handy with its remote control features. The off-screen play is also a real big plus. I can play EarthBound on the GamePad while I give Ideal pointers as he plays Pikmin 2 on the Wii.
Despite the various issues Wii U has had, I've never regretted getting it the day after launch (stupid UPS).
