Top Ten Best Things About the Wii U

The Top Ten
1 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.

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.

2 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?!

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

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

3 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!

4 Cheap

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

5 Miiverse

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)

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

7 Beautiful HD Graphics

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

Switch looks like **** Wii U looks beautiful

8 Off-TV Play

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 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
