I like that it makes me feel like I'm in an exclusive club by owning one.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

An exclusive club? It's leading the 8th gen as I type this.
It brought me back to the chance of going into Virtual Console games. Other than the 7 $0.30 games, I bought 4 games I've never played
Super Mario World (The last Mario Platformer I needed to play, in order to say I've played them all)
Mega Man (My first Mega Man title, and one that doesn't disappoint)
Final Fight (My first beat em' up, that leaves quite a great impression on me)
and Earthbound (1 Word: Masterpiece)
I'm looking at Gradius, or Xevious next as well.

I like off tv play. My Wii U isn't even hooked up to my main tv but it is still incredibly useful. When my little brother decides to play the SNES, I can still play whatever on the wii u or wii. Its awesome! Sharing the tv has never been easier! I have recently been playing F-zero X off the gamepad and it has been great!

The gamepad comes in handy and is very convenient when I lose my remote.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

I am a big fan. I am very much enjoying the games. Otherwise, I wouldn't care for the system. What I am most excited about, though, is the future of the Game Pad. I already enjoy how the game pad has been utilized, but so far nothing has been terribly ground breaking. Cool, but not ground breaking. (I hear Deus Ex uses it pretty well, but I haven't played that yet.) I'm waiting for a company to be bold enough to try something no one has thought of yet. I believe someone will. Once, companies get used to designing for the game pad, some one will take a risk create an experience we haven't had yet. There is so much potential in that controller.

I don't necessarily agree but it is absolutely amazing for Twitch.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Personally, I'd say the way the Gamepad is used in "Lego City: Uncover" is close to ground breaking.

Current Top 15: Splatoon, MK8, Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Terraria for Wii U, Super Mario Maker, Affordable Space Adventures, SM3DW, Yoshi's Woolly World, Twilight Princess:HD, Stealth Inc. 2, LEGO City: Undercover, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Runbow, Bayonetta 1+2

Game selection. Yes, you read that right. There's only 4 non Wii U games I want at this point, whereas there's over a dozen games I want that I can't get on the other systems.
Real easy OS compared to the other consoles; no sub-menus.
Small and quite.
A disc loaded light.
The gamepad is beyond awesome.
Off play is really useful.
Youtube, netflix and amazon are so simple to use with the gamepad.
Nintendo exclusives.

Well I'm a huge horror fan (both movies and games) so I was very happy to see an actual survival horror game as a launch title for the Wii U. Zombi U brought horror back to the zombie genre, and anybody that says otherwise is talking rubbish. Then there's miiverse that I think is a loads of fun, I love sharing my opinion and views with other Wii U gamers and uploading pics and writing funny stuff.

Then there's the fact that the Wii U is home to the best 1st party titles in the world, I am loving DKC tropical freeze, mario 3D world, WW HD, you just won't find games this good with so much charm and attention to detail on ANY other system.

And I think I found my new favorite game, LEGO city undercover, That game is just sooooooooo much fun, I felt like a little kid again. Another Wii U moment that brought out the man child in me was using the bat com in arkham city armored edition, seriously as a huge batman fan, it just felt great to be drawn into the dark knight's world in such an intuitive way and anybody that just dismissed it as a gimmick has no soul.

Free online, backwards compatibility, great games to come, why more people are not buying a wii u is just beyond me and it's their loss in my opinion.

I've been playing ZombiU for the past few days and it's very fun. So nice to see a zombie survival game that's actually scary, instead of the thinly disguised shoot 'em ups that plague the genre currently.

U-Wishlist: Splatoon, Zelda U

I've been stuck in the past with my Wii Games....and with the virtual console it's definatly the console most accessible to previous historic Nintedo games.

I really do wish the 3rd party support for the Wii U was better and hopefully it can improve in the future if sales pick up. I will say that I'm very happy that the Wii U is getting exclusives again and again. It makes me smile that there are a growing number of games you can only find on Wii U. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Bayonetta 2, X, Yarn Yoshi, Legend of Zelda U, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros and Fatal Frame (hopefully it gets localized). That's 7-8 exclusives that's gonna join the exclusive list for Wii U

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!
