@Kong86 If you're looking for a fun and challenging platformer, go for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It's a blast!
If you want more of an action-adventure game, I recommend Mass Effect 3 or Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
If you want more of a skilled-based, tactical first person game, i'd go for ZombiU (more of a horror game but it takes planning and skill)
All of these games are great and I fully recommend them! You also have a pretty solid game lineup right now! I have all of those too and i love every one of them. I just managed to beat Pikmin 3 and it was great. I hope this helps!

Thanks Nick! Ill look into those.

If you like MK8 try Sonic and All Stars Racing (maybe after a while). I'd also recommend Tekken if you like fighters. Madden 13 is pretty good. All of these are around $20 or less. Oh, and Wii Sports Club is pretty good too. Didn't think I'd like that, but it grew on me.

I totally agree with Nick's recommendations but I might also add Wonderful 101 if you're into quirky beat-em-ups. The learning curve is high, but the payoff is even higher IMO.

Right now I'm playing the Wii U version of Deus Ex and I like that so far (the gamepad integration is almost as good as ZombiU), and I got it for cheap on Newegg (under $20 with free shipping).

Cool. Thanks for all the recommendations!

How hard is Wind Waker HD? I ended up getting it through the promotion after all and was wondering if it's not too hard to get into. Also is black flag really hard to pick up? I've never played an Assassin's Creed game before but it's a good price on Future Shop Canada's website, $19.99. And I like pirates.

Want: Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi and many others.

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing Stories, Crystal and Ultra Sun.

@Pokefanmum82 I'm playing through WW HD right now and it's not difficult. In terms of being able to "get into it," I'd say what can make it tedious for some is all the sailing between islands. The new Swift Sail helps but you don't get that right away.

edit: For what it's worth I highly recommend it but at least give it a chance to see if you like it

Right now I'm just waiting for it to download. I can't wait to play it.

Frankly, Wind Waker is one of the easiest Zelda games, however that doesn't stop it from being one of the very best too.

The triforce quest was pretty hard though! The final boss wasn't easy either. >.>

I don't know about the difficulty of a Triforce quest. I rarely experienced a Triforce quest at all. This "quest", for me, was just a few tiny islands to complete (a natural and automatic process) and a few treasures to fish from the bottom of the ocean, not different than any of the other treasures you can find.

Final boss wasn't easy? Well, I played all Zelda games (except the newest: ALBW) and now that I recently completed WWHD that's what my reaction was: Oh he takes away 4 hearts with one hit? (played on Hero Mode) Better avoid being hit! He's extremely slow so you have all the time in the world to avoid all his few attacks. The battle is nothing more than waiting for the "A" button prompt, unleashing a 3 hit combo, repeating this a few times, and following Zelda's advice. While there's always strategy involved in beating Zelda bosses, this final boss seemed remarkably easy to me, once you figured out what to do. There are other bosses that are still hard, even when you know what to do. For example: The boss before the final boss is more difficult.

I really want to understand why people have problems with the Triforce "quest". It's not the first time I hear about this. Nintendo even changed this part in the HD version. I didn't notice a difference, but it's been 11 years since I completed Wind Waker (four times).

Just finished Wind Waker HD and didn't find the triforce "quest" hard. Except maybe the hidden hole in Initia island, the one with dozens of levels.

Great game but it is true that the dungeons are pretty easy, although fun.

Now I guess I have to get A link to the past, the only one I don't own.

Hello, thanks to this thread i bough the Wii u + 8 games +2 pro controllers but wont be playing till saturday. I have never played any Wii game (plenty n64 games and a couple of GC though), so i'm wondering where would be a good start, what do you guys advise?

On top of that did i miss any must-play Wii or GC game ? I know i can play them on the Wii u... plus i never played TLOZ ocarina of time but i read that i need the wii classic controller, is it worth paying $50 to play ocarina of time on the Wii u?

thank you in advance

Here is the list:

Wind waker HD

Mario Kart 8

Super Mario 3D world

Donkey kong tropical freeze

Pikmin 3

The wonderful 101

Nintendo Land

ZombiU

@maco You cannot play (native) GameCube games on Wii U, only those that were ported to Wii (New Play Control series, Resident Evil Archives and Metroid Prime Trilogy are the only ones that I know of).

Second, if Ocarina of Time is the only game you'd play on Wii VC, I'd hold back. Nintendo might eventually get N64 games on Wii U VC, and $50 investment for one old game for playing purposes only is a bit too much. I don't see why you should buy all the games right away, so I'd advice pushing the Classic Controller investment back.

EDIT: Fixed "Wii" to "Wii U" as being unable to run GameCube games

I saw that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag had a good discount on eShop. I know DLC is missing from Wii U, but does the game still run decently?

I recommend the game and I really like that you are able to sail around and explore the world on your own once you get a bit into the game! Some of the main missions take some practice and patience though but it's well worth it!

I actually liked the Triforce quest in the GCN version, more. I guess some people complained about how many rupees you had to get to complete it, followed by finding the Triforce piece in the sea, but that was part of the challenge and made the game longer.

The slow sailing was actually appealing to me, too, because it made the game feel longer and made the sailing parts seem more "real". I use the swift sail, but I would have ben fine without it.

Windwaker is the only one I really don't like - haven't played the DS ones. (Even the first and The Adventure of Link I like).

The Triforce Quest in Wind Waker (GCN) wouldn't be so bad if you didn't have to grind a billion rupees to pay Tingle to "translate" the charts.
