Top Ten Best Things About the Wii U

The Top Ten Best Things About the Wii U

1 Gamepad

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

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. - toptenzen

2 So Many Great Games

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 witch it awesome and I could get games again I had on my old wii - trains45

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. - Entranced98

Mario maker made the wiiu great again - YOSHIA2121

SSB4, Super Mario 3D World, Wind Waker HD, NSMBU, Splatoon, Mario Kart 8, The Wonderful 101, Bayonnetta 2, Rayman Legends, need I say more? - toptenzen

3 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

4 Cheap

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

5 Miiverse

Miiverse shutdown sadly - trains45

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

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

6 Amiibo

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

7 Beautiful HD Graphics

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

oh yeah - YOSHIA2121

8 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 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. - toptenzen

This is very helpful when someone is watching some dumbass show and you wanna play videogames, such a relief to put in some earbuds and play mario maker and block out the history channel in the backround - YOSHIA2121

9 You Can Play Wii Games on it

Yeah that was awesome about the wii u can play good wii games as well - trains45

Yeah I just got 3 wii games this week, and I can play them on my wii u - trains45

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

I love that, you can play double the games.

10 You Can Use the Gamecube Controller

Only on smash unfortunately - trains45
