The Top Ten

New Super Mario Bros. U
No game can beat the awesomest!
What more can I say about Mario? He's an icon in video games and even today, his games still withstand the test of time. That's pretty much all I gotta say. Long live the plumber.
True super Mario bros. Is the best! Super Mario world is truly the best.
[Newest]Peach was so rude in this game. why do we get her more than Princess Daisy?

2Super Mario 3D World
This game got so much good feedback from many game reviewers, it got 8's, 9's and 10's! There is so much good stuff about it and it's just very enjoyable. It's very creative and there's a lot of originality about it, yet there are bits you remembered from other games. Like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, it's absolutely fantastic yet for some reason it doesn't sell as well as other games.
As for New Super Mario Bros U, that should be 5 or something, it's pretty much the same as New Super Mario Bros Wii and 2, New Super Mario Bros DS was the only original one.
Great Game! Better than Super Mario Bros U!
This is one of the best Mario games created. Trumps all four New Super Mario Bros games, defeats its predecessor and 3D Land and beats Sunshine, is better than Super Mario Bros 2 on NES, and is on the same level as the original Galaxy (64 and Galaxy 2 are better though)
[Newest]Princess Peach was so pathetic in this game. She wouldn't even rescue anyone.

3Nintendo Land
Nintendo Land is the only Wii you game I've got at the moment. The variety is astounding; being able to go from running around shooting at enemies in Metroid Blast to slicing through enemies with my sword in TLoZ: Battle Quest, to defeating a ghost in Luigi's Ghost Mansion, while being able to play many of the attractions solo or with up to 4 friends is amazing.
Nintendo land is awesome enough said
The most original game yet on the Wii U. Really shows what the Wii you is capable of, and it's a ton of fun. I don't actually have a Wii U, but I've played this at my friend's house and it's the one game that I really feel I want.
[Newest]I love this game

4Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart 8 Should Be Number 1
Great game. Love it!
One Week until release and it is shaping up to be the best game in the series.
[Newest]It is too fun I have it

5Super Smash Bros.
This is the best game for Wii U. It brings up to 8 friends to play together in one room. Isn't that better than playing strangers online? With 8 possible players, no one is left out. Outstanding gameplay that has been improved over the course of 15, with a huge roster of nothing but the biggest video game icons... and Wii Fit Trainer... How can you go wrong? This game is simply amazing.
This will be a system seller indeed woohoo
[Newest]I absolutely claim this to be one of the top games of all time and best Wii U game ever

6Scribblenauts Unlimited
I'm a little confused as to how Pikmin 3 is on the list when it hasn't even been released yet(at #4, no less) but oh well. As for Scribblenauts Unlimited, it takes the original formula we loved from the first games and adds SO so much that it is a must have for any owner of the newest console.
Awesome game. Took the best feature from the original games and made it even better.
Best about you can create Link, Zelda, Ganon, Mario, Bowser, koopa, koopa troopa, bob-omb, Luigi, peach and Toad!


7Pikmin 3
We have waited 9 YEARS. 9 LONG YEARS OF SUFFERING! And we finally get a third Pikmin game! And is nothing short of what I expected! Every gameplay aspect is amazing. Just one question: What are all the Call of Duty fanboys doing on this list?
Well, I Remember this game in the Old Times... I think is like the old times And Better.
BEAUTIFUL! This game is amazing!
[Newest]Better than call of duty!

8Call of Duty: Black Ops II
So good I just love playing it all the time
Awesome game and black ops 2 is awesome on any game console. The game is the best game ever!
Nothing can compete with this games awesome multiplayer
[Newest]It is quite an accomplishment... a Call of Duty game is good on a Nintendo console?


9The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker HD
A classic adventure that caused a lot of controversy by the way it looks but I think it was a good risk for Nintendo and to me will always be one of the best Gamecube and an amazing addition to the Wii you
When I played the demo in walmart I was like, woh! This. is. awesome! Even though it was made the same reason they made cave story 3d, it is my seconf favorite Zelda game. first being Zelda wii U. I can't wait for it to come out!
I never played the Wind Waker on the GameCube, so when I got the chance to play it for free in HD (Mario Kart 8 Deal), I quickly jumped onto the opportunity. And DAMN, is this fun!


I love this game. Turn off all of the lights and sit in the dark for hours. You will poo yourself on more than one occasion.
I like this game with the creepy atmosphere but it's a little bit hard to aim when you have a gun
Fast paced and scary. Didn't like the ending though

The Contenders

11Assassin's Creed III
It's games like this that make the new Wii you so much fun. I don't think anyone who's played the you version of this game who hasn't liked it. Certainly no one I've met.


Come on guys, this game is just god-damn awesome. Is the best in the series and the first for Nintendo
Awesome game. Deserves a better place on the list.
[Newest]The first major Assassin's Creed release on Nintendo, cheers to Ubisoft!

12Rayman Legends
Please help put this higher up! I've only ever played the demo at game stores and it's already one of my favourite ever games! The main reason why I want a Wii you so badly!
If you haven't played Rayman Legends, you're missing out!
This game isn't #1. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me.

13Lego City: Undercover
You get to go undercover
The best. When you finish the game you get to drive anywhere. This is Just like Grand Theft Auto


Grand Theft Auto PG rated version! Buy this game!

14Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition
I like this version better then the XBOX 360 version because They unknown less annoying and cheap and more fun and more and theirs a special mode that is awesome which is the Mushroom one and you can start with Miharu
It's a very interesting game with a lot of adventures, fighting and rocking, breaking.
Best fighting game of all time...

15Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Tiny Kong should've replaced Dixie Kong.

16Sonic Lost World
I know it is not out yet but it looks amazing
Best wii you game ever, although that's not saying much because I've only played 4 other games




17Darksiders II
WOW. Just WOW. This is honestly one of the best games I've ever played; it's like Zelda meets God of War meets Prince of Persia meets Skyrim. It's absolutely incredible. Thank you SO much, Vigil Games!
Out of the Wii you games that are currently out, this takes the cake. It's sort of like an awesome violent version of The Legend of zelda.


18Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition
Batman: Arkham City is an amazing game no matter the console. I wish I had the pleasure of having this for the Wii U; however, I still find new things to do, new combos to try, as I play the Xbox 360 version OVER and OVER.

19Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
How could you hate crossovers & the teamwork of Super Monkey Ball characters with other crossover characters?!

20Game & Wario
This game looks so epic! But how can Skylanders Giants be on here? From what I know, that's for the wii, not wiiu

21Skylander Giants
Come on its skylander giants this should be like 2nd place it is a good game because it is a game of spyro and there are like 12 spyro so this should be better and It could possibly be even bette


It's awesome, definite version.


BEST game ever, very cool technology used.

22Bayonetta 2

23Need for Speed Most Wanted U
Stuck at number 20. This should be number 1 whereas New Super Mario Bros you should be cut off from this list.

24The Wonderful 101
Awesome game on wii you the gameplay when fighting enemies is fun so underrated
If you're a fan of Viewtiful Joe and Bayonetta you'll love this game.
Why isn't this even on here?

25Just Dance 4
This Song Is Top Ten Material. Nothing less.
I like the songs and dance

26Disney Infinity

27Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
Made a bad game amazing should be way higher than number 15

28Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
People say the Wii you ahs horrible third party but at least this one is good.


Expands upon ac3 and has best stealth in assassins creed series

29The Amazing Spider-man
Come on! He's flippin' Spider Man! He's the best Marvel hero by far!

30Game Party Champions

31Batman: Arkham Origins

32New Super Luigi U

33Hyrule Warriors
How is this not way higher up on this list?
This is hands down the best Dynasty Warriors game next to the Gundam Dynasty Warriors, who doesn't love killing waves and waves of enemies?
This game is far more entertaining than any stupid rehashed Call of Duty game, there is an actual history line and story to this game where as Call of Duty is the same game as the previous six Call of Duty games just with slight differences.
This should easily be up there above all Call of Duty games on this list.

34NBA 2K13
Eh pretty good game for start expecting 2k14 to be better

35Madden 13
I don't know how this is not number one if its football it has to be good
Are you serious?... It's Madden... Aka, EA Sports... They were voted worst company in the world TWO TIMES in a row!

Madden games USED to be good, now all they do is update the roster and keep removing all the parts of Madden that people used to love. The only reason people buy it is because it's the ONLY NFL game that is sold. I'd rather just go a lifetime without any football games than force myself to play that atrocity

36Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

37Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
What THis should at least be number 10
This game...
You'll either hate it or love it and never play anything else and rack up over 1000 hours while waiting for the next game!

38Resident Evil: Revelations

39Call of Duty: Ghosts
Newest Call of Duty game good guns and weapons! 1

40The Amazing Spider-Man 2

41SING Party

65Trine 2: Director's Cut

66Watch Dogs

67Mario Maker

68Kirby & The Rainbow Curse

69Mario Party 10
Hopefully Daisy & Rosalina are in this game. And why is Princess Peach in this game? At least Mario is in it, but I don't get it. Princess Peach will not do well in Mario Party 10. She's just going to quit & hate to win & become the superstar. Mario Party stand since Mario Party 6!

70Devil's Third

71Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark


73Skylanders: Trap Team

74Just Dance 2015

75Pushmo World

76Shovel Knight
One of the finest platformers of all time. Takes elements from NES classics like Mega Man, SMB3, and Ducktales and improves on them. Also, the soundtrack is phenomenal.
