The Top Ten

Gamepad Gamepad Product Image

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. - robertoiglesias271

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.

Minecraft cool to play on the gamepad screen witch I can't do on ps3 and ps4 versions - trains45

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. - YOSHIA2121

Mario maker made the wiiu great again - YOSHIA2121

Virtual Console

I got some good games from n64, snes, and nes, and one ds game - trains45

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


Cheaper and better than other controllers - YOSHIA2121

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! - toptenzen


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. - toptenzen

Not anymore, thanks a lot nintendo (Sarcasm) - YOSHIA2121

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

Beautiful HD Graphics

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

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. - trains45

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 - trains45

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*
