Wii U is my excuse to delay buying actual new games or systems. Or one of my excuses.

Despite any issues it has, I'm still gonna playing the good games I have for it until somewhere near the end of the year. Bare minimum, I plan on finishing BOTW, beat two more actual retail games (these existed on Wii U sometimes), and replay Wonderful 101. Good use of my time, might do some other things, I do need to at least buy Rainbow Curse already (can't forget about any major Kirby release, ever).

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

Glad I'm not the only one using it as an excuse! Some of the others are for budget and more important purchases that I need.

@Tyranexx I'm another. I can't justify a Switch purchase yet as there's virtually nothing there for me at the moment. Too many Wii U ports have delayed that purchase indefinitely for me. Once it gets some of the standard original Nintendo content I might dive in. I'm not a big Mario fan, so Odyssey is not really one for me. Maybe this time next year for me?

Until then, I've so many Wii U games to finish.

@Moroboshi876 Never buy more games than you can handle. Manage your time wisely and enjoy every game alone. That's my advice to a lot of you in this forum here.

@TheCurator Good advice on the one hand, but on the other, with some of us having less and less time to play games as is, that would mean missing out on a hell of a lot of must-buys/must-haves, which will subsequently either disappear into oblivion, or will only be available for the most astronomical and ridiculously high prices.

So, I say: better buy those games you'd like to have in your collection now, while they're still available and affordable, instead of missing out or having to sell your left arm to be able to pay for it somewhere down the line, when it's rarity has driven its price up through the roof...

@ThanosReXXX You can always get the games you want online in most cases. But fair your point nevertheless.

@TheCurator Yeah, I know, but I'm more of a physical copy kinda guy.
Don't really want to be dependent upon the whims of any company possibly causing the loss of any (re-)download...

For Wii U, the best approach was buying physical games as soon as possible as you didn't know when they'd just stop being sold. Sure you end up likely to have a bunch of games you don't play for like months/years because of other games but it's better that than not being able to get it physically.

@Grumblevolcano My thoughts exactly. For each system, there simply are certain games that either belong with or even define that console, and as such, I must have these games in my collection, whether I'll have time to play them or not. But at least, I'll own them without having to pay a week's salary for them...

It’s a great system. I sold and traded most of my games but I still buy games for it. I actually play the Wii u more than switch. My best Wii u games physical I kept

I‘ve never made it a secret how much I hated using WiiU every step of the way. Holding the weirdly toy-like Gamepad, waiting for minutes on end for it to do simple tasks like booting up games or switching languages, charging the Gamepad with a standard definition screen (!) every few hours. And then the long time between releases! I am not overestimating nor underestimating my own feeling when I say I hated playing on it.

But when the time came to make space for Switch, I couldn‘t bring myself to take it to the basement where all the older consoles rest in a sort of graveyard. To this day it holds its own new spot next to its elder sibling, the Wii, right below the TV. It hasn’t been connected, let alone switched on, in more than a year, though.

I‘d happily buy all the WiiU‘s greatest hits on Switch again. The few it actually had that is. We‘re nearly there. All that‘s left is Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD, Twilight Princess HD, Mario Maker Ver. 2.0 and Smash 4 Deluxe.

I don't relate to your hatred this much but it's definitely a disappointing console for me, and stings worse when I realized that two exclusives I really wanted (Sonic Lost World and Super Mario 3D World) weren't that great. And I got mine really late so I never got to use Miiverse, which sucks because it looked like fun.

You know your system isn't great when you have to go searching for oddball good games, because most of the triple A titles don't cut it or are too few in number. And I'm just personally not into simple sideshow attractions like Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker. I always knew the Wii U library was smaller, but never could have fathomed it was this small.

The only game out of the 6 that I own that I've truly enjoyed so far is Smash Bros.

I really only go back to it for Mario Maker and Pikmin 3. I loved the GamePad even though you couldn't take it with you like the Switch, the motion control and how it worked with the TV screen was cool. It's definitely one of Nintendo's best controllers despite the way the console was screwed over.

I just got a Wii U pro controller today. Man, it is a thing of beauty, so comfortable and well made. It's a shame that Nintendo didn't go with it as the main controller, the console would have done much better and had many more games for it.

My thoughts exactly. Would have loved the WiiU if the gamepad wasnt tied to the console. The pro controllers feel so awesome. Ah well.
