Top Ten Best Things About the Wii U

The Top Ten

I love this controller. The buttons are big, the screen is a nice feature, it's comfortable to hold, the features are neat, and the TV button is cool.

Some people call it a gimmick, but I think it has so many great features. 4 action buttons, 4 shoulder buttons, touchscreen, two joysticks, D-pad, microphone, home button, power button, T.V. button, start button, select button, and many more.

The wii u great for all this but I have one annoyance: I can't seem to read thetoptens messages that are too long so I can talk to other users.

It has cool features I just wish it didn't have such a short battery life because as a gamer I need more than two hours of battery life.

So Many Great Games So Many Great Games Product Image

New Super Mario Bros U (and Luigi U), Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Maker, Mario Kart 8, Mario Party 10 (in my opinion), Super Smash Bros for Wii U, Yoshi's Woolly World, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Pokken Tournament, Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD, Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD, Bayonetta, Baynoetta 2, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Rayman Legends, Shovel Knight, Nintendo Land, Sonic Lost World, Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed, Call of Duty Ghosts, Call of Duty Black Ops II, Splatoon, Hyrule Warriors.

And how could I forgot BREATH OF THE WILD?!

Yup. Great games like Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros Wii U, Super Mario Maker, and New Super Mario Bros U and Luigi U, and also can play all Wii games on it which is awesome and I could get games again I had on my old Wii

Gameplay wise, quite a lot of them are miles better than what the Wii had to offer, plus there was nowhere near as much shovelware.

Mario maker made the wiiu great again

Virtual Console

Why buy a bunch of different Nintendo consoles, when you can buy over half of them for $300 dollars? Now that's a discount!

I got some good games from n64, snes, and nes, and one ds game


You want a PS4? That'll be $400! You want a Xbox One? That'll be $500! Want a console better than both of those? That'll be $300!

Cheaper and better than other controllers


Are you a kid and want a Facebook account, but your mom says you're too young? Miiverse is the closest you're gonna get.

Not anymore, thanks a lot nintendo (Sarcasm)

Miiverse shutdown sadly

This is DLC done right, except it isn't DLC. What will they think of next?

Beautiful HD Graphics

Though it's not as HD as the PS4 or Xbox One, it still looks stunning!

Off-TV Play

Yeah can play minecraft, mario kart 8, smash bros wii u, super mario maker, all the Virtual Console games I have, and legend of zelda, breath of the wild, wind waker, and twlight princess off T.V.

Person 1: *playing on Wii*
Person 2: *turns off T.V.*
Person 1: Hey, what the hell?!?!
Person 2: My show is on in 5 minutes!
Person 1: Fine.

Person 1: *playing on Wii U*
Person 2: *turns of T.V.*
Person 1: Hey, what the hell?!?!
Person 2: My show is on in 5 minutes!
Person 1: Okay, I'll just play on the gamepad.

I always love off TV play

This was helpful today when I was moving files from a usb and playing my ps4 while waiting I could just check the gamepad to see how much done it is

You Can Play Wii Games on it

The Wii is about the same price as the Wii U. If you're gonna buy a Wii, just buy a Wii U instead.

Get double the games. I like Wii u games and Wii games so this is amazing!
