And I'm loving it. What games are great on the system? So far we have Nintendo Land and Super Mario Brothers. Both great games. Any suggestions?

The Rayman Legends challenge app, it's free on the eShop so go download it. Really fun. Lego City Undercover, Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate and Resident Evil Revelations (comes out in May) all look pretty good. So check those out.

All I'm playing right now, personally, is The Waiting Game. I'll be playing that until The Wonderful 101 releases probably.

I'm loving Darksiders II, Arkham City (finished) and Assassin's Creed III. Also, NBA 2K13 is pretty amazing. There's Scribblenauts Unlimited, Need For Speed. A lot to choose from.

I seriously think you need to leave this website. I hope it's not just my opinion.

Now, on topic. You should give a try to Need For Speed Most Wanted U, it's great to play with Wiimote and WiiWheel, something you can't do on other platforms. You can actually play with the WiiWheel on the GamePad, without the TV, and with the GamePad stand it's utterly enjoyable. One of my favorite ways to play is with and on the GamePad only in first-person mode, using the left stck to steer and the right stick to accelerate or brake. It's like holding the world of NFS in you hand as if you were there, speeding while listening to Muse's Butterflies and Hurricanes. And if you have a girlfriend (which I don't, so I can't say from experience), you could try playing Bonnie and Clyde with the cops thanks to the co-driver mode. ;)
Another game I would suggest you is Call of Duty Black Ops 2, for the campaign, which just changed my mind about all the BS that is said about CoD being a dumb dumb game. Again, something only possible on Nintendo is playing with the Wiimote and Nunchuck, which is just so much more immersive, but you'll need to ask on Miiverse to get the right configuration. Another thing exclusive to Nintendo is two-screen multiplayer, and I'm proud as hell to have defeat my 360 friend on Wii U at his favorite game.
Another game I got is Tekken Tag Tournament 2, just because I wanted to defeat my PS3 friend on the game he always whooped me on. It's great, but too technical for newbie enjoyment. But if you know your way around Tekken, you should get it, just to get a laugh at the Nintendo costumes.
What else, what else, what else... I got Arkham City, didn't like it. I have Darksiders II, haven't played it yet. You could try ZombiU, I don't have it. Lego City Undercover, cracking game. ...Yeah, that's for what I know.

And I only talked about boxed games. I would have to create a topic about indie games and VC to answer more profusely your question. AND... I forgot to mention that Wii games look so much better on Wii U (Metroid Prime Trilogy...), and obviously, thanks to the bad rep the Wii has received through media, just like for me there MUST be Wii gems you haven't played yet.

Btw: Next time you want some sound advice of what games you want to play from the Wii U from people who ACTUALLY play on their Wii Us, seriously, REALLY seriously, go to Miiverse. I've done my time on forums, and attitude around here won't get you anywhere.

Retail: I have Need for Speed: Most Wanted, definitely worth it.
Also look at Injustice: Gods Among Us which looks pretty good if you're into fighters (which I'm not)
............ that's about it other than what you already have

VC: Grab Super Mario World because it's awesome and Kirby's Adventure because it's 30c
Digital: Nano Assault Neo, Bit Trip Runner 2 and Trine 2

......... that should keep you busy for a couple of months. By then hopefully there's something else worth getting

People who somehow(?) don't like or (somehow)? already played the exclusives (Nintendo Land, Scribblenauts (w/pc), Zombi U, NSMB, Lego Undercover, Monster Hunter) and already played all the multiplatform titles on other platforms,and already played the VC, and experienced all the eshop titles, might be bored. And rich and have a lot of free time. Probably a couple out there.

I guess I'll be playing more of this game on the Wii U until some good titles come out later this year. Can't find any good Wii U games yesterday at Walmart I ended up getting Pikmin 2 instead.
