hey guys, i finally got a wii u! took awhile, i know(yeah yeah). i never got one because of wo thngs, the price, and the lacking library. since the library is significantly better now, and i picked up a basic set for 170$ new, im ready to dig in.

i bought smash immediately, along with a lan adapter, and on the way is the gamecube controller adapter. i also bought mass effect 3 for 8 dollars cib, monster hunter 3 ultimate (per recommendation at gamestop, never played MH before) for 16 bucks.

i know smash and mass effect 3 are both epic, and everything i hear about mh3u implies the same. considering i got two of those titles for under 20$ and 10$, im betting there are many more that i can pick up for the same price that are also awesome.

the wii u is soon to die, sadly, and i am a collector. now is the time im going to buy up everything i want for the system. ive been playing pc, and a new 3ds xl(and original 3ds xl as soon as it came out) forever so i really dont know anything about the wii u. so, i need some suggestions please.

around/under 20 bucks, 30 at the very most, and HARD COPYS ONLY PLEASE(collector).

i like rpg's, racing games, and some shooters. however, i am open to new experiences.

final fantasy, fire emblem, those kin
d of rpg's

gran turismo, a few nfs racers, those kind of racers.

mass effect, online shooters. love em, especially when vehicles are involved. i LOVE planetside 2.

so really, name anything good and cheap, and maybe this list will even help out others who are bound to pick up their first Wii U soon, as the prices are about to drop like crazy. my budget is decent enough, so im literally going to pick up every single game i want for this thing in the next 6 months. i look forward to and will be actively watching this topic. oh yeah, my friend and i are starting a retro-modern gaming youtube channel. ill bring it up at a later date, but for now ill be super active here! hi everyone, im Mako(yes, i have ADD)!

You can get splinter cell black list for about 20 bucks. You can also pick up deues ex the directors cut for 15 to 20.
Do you like fighters, platforms, or action adventure games? I can recommend a lot more if so.

what kind of games are they? i playes the first splinter cell back on ps1, i think, and wasnt very into it. i imagine its come a long way though. for platformers, i like megaman, metroid(beat them all except other m, and prime 3, sort of platformerish). i love metal slug. what is deus ex? i dont know a single thing about it. thanks by the way!

@Mako-Atlus splinter cell has evolved into an over the shoulder cover shooter like mass effect except it has a emphasis on stealth. Deus ex is a stealth shooter rpg hybrid made by square. It tacks place in a cyber punk universe. Think Japanese blade runner.

interesting, ill check it out. i just ordered need for speed most wanted u, as it has epic reviews, i love open world games, and i love to have a good racing game on hand for that often-needed change of pace.

so splinter cell, ill look into this evening. check.

not super into cyber punk, or blade runner really. any online mode? sometimes thats enough for the purchase.

Mako-Atlus

Mako-Atlus

oh, need for speed was 20$ brand new on the electronic bay.

No online mode. You should watch a gameplay video tho. It is the best (imop) third party effort on the system. Game pad and all. Splinter Cell does have online.

What prices will drop like crazy? Everyone has said that the Wii U HW prices would drop for several years, and it never happened yet. And it doesn't seem that Nintendo is overstocked with Wii U units at this point?

@jariw the nintendo nx will be out in march 2017. that alone will make this console "obsolete", even if games come out for it for another couple of years. i just got my wii u brand new for 170$, and itll likely stay under or around 200$ ccome this holiday season.

its only because the new system is coming out.

If you like Mass Effect 3 then I'd have thought you're bound to like Deus Ex too.

Batman Arkham City can be had very cheap.

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

yes, arkham origins and city are already on my list to get, so is xenoblade. i suppose i should add a "plan to get" section on my list. thanks guys! can you give me some details on batman and xenoblade please? this is not only for me, but for anyone else googling "cheap wii u games"

its not mass effect 3 specifically, its the whole series i played mass effect 1 on 360, mass effect 2 on pc, and the third now on wii u. not ahuge fan of shooters, but its executed very well when combined with the rpg aspects. if you didnt level up, get new equipment, etc, id probably never have played it. its why i like planetside 2, too, but youll never see me sitting for 8 hours playing a FPS when thats all there is to it.

I think the two Platinum games (heh) are below 20$
Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 are both pretty great if you're into those kinda action games.

What a beautiful signature.

thanks! do you know the prices of hard copies/not nintendo selet? as a collector i prefer original releases, or at the very least, not nintendo select copies. this is similar to playstation greatest hits, which are far less valuable than greatest hits.

however, since this thread also brings a pretty small cap/game, 20$ give or take, nintendo selects copies are very much welcome. they go for 20$, and have sold so-many copies tp achieve select status yes? any more info you have would be appreciated, please elaborate for uture readers.

Pikmin is very expensive. Prolly $90 new if you can find it. $60 used. Not sure about the others. Prices might have dropped bc the releaseof select editions.
