OP, how do you feel if you get a game but cannot finish it? Does it make you crazy? What about collecting trophies or achievements? This is kind of interesting.

Your wording makes those questions borderline offensive.

I havent been diagnosed, but I am also very obsessive about every tiny detail in my games. I have similar problems, first I deleted my account at least twice after a week using it because I wanted to have registered in my first day of daily log only one use of each game and app with the exact time it took me to adjust my settings on each one. Then I bought and installed eShop games and apps in alfabetical order, so that they could appear in that order in my eShop account and the System Memory screen in Settings, to my surprise they downloaded and registered in both places in a completely random order. I tried redownloading, deleting my user profile (yes, again!), moving between memory and HDD and formatting both with no success in getting the alphabetical order and losing lots of time in the process. And today I changed the date to last Christmas to unlock Alex Kidd in Sonic Racing, and when I moved back the date I forgot about the year and left it in 2012, the result: a disgusting and inaccurate entry with today's activity in march last year when WiiU wasnt even out. My only relief now is that it will eventually be erased, like the 3DS one, the WiiU activity log has limited capacity and the oldest activity/game entries are deleted when that capacity is reached. I am glad I found your topic, I'm not alone!

The closest thing to editing the Activity log (without deleting your profile) I found is to unplug your WiiU during a session of a game you just realized you dont like (or dont want it in your log for whatever reason) this way the current session wont be registered, but as soon as you turn power off (not by unplugging) or exit to WiiU Menu its permanently recorded. Also, if you dont want to register the time a pause lasted, just use Home Menu during your pause and the time at Home Menu wont be registered. I havent found a single way to delete the account activity of the eShop downloads on the console section, deleting the network IDs only deletes entries from your account section and even formatting wont do anyhing. I could spend all night writing a text wall of similar gaming experiences...

One day a friend brought Tekken Tag 2 to me, and yeah, I kinda wanted to delete it from my playlog because it's not a game I own, but hey, it's an activity log (and it does its job perfectly fine unlike the activity log on Wii) so your OCD should be happy about tracking each of your "steps" a 100%.

A bigger problem than your OCD is to think so lowly about Little Inferno, Trine 2, Chasing Aurora, and Puddle. They're all pretty neat games.

They probably do this for security reasons. I know on PS3, my cousin bought a game with a pre-paid Visa card I bought and though he would get away with it by deleting it before I came back (I was in Washington D.C. for a week for a field trip, I live on the west coast). When I got back I tried to use it but it said I had insufficient funds. I checked the download history to see that my cousin bought Warhawk or something.,..

Let's just say it didn't end well for him.

Either way, I think that's probably one of the reasons why Nintendo logs your purchases (in addition to what everyone else already said)

I could see them letting you delete games from your log but not from the eShop. It would cause problems of Parents purchasing games and their Kids delete them causing the parent to have to re-pay. But I don't see a reason why not to let you delete from your Activity Log

If you delete a game that you purchased from the eShop, you re-download whenever you want for free.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

He's talking about deleting the it from your list of games in the shop, not just off the console. Like, deleting the license you bought that allows you to download the game.

I have OCD but it doesn't affect my gaming as badly as it affects yours. For example I like to play games at specific points in the day, and my pile of handheld games has to be in a certain order; best game at the top, worst at the bottom. I don't care what order my home console games are in as I keep the discs in their cases (my handheld game carts aren't kept in their cases) so I just have my most recently played game at the top.

Anyway, for reasons others have stated I can understand Nintendo doing this but maybe they could make it so that you have to enter a password to edit your history. That way, if someone else has used your account to buy something while you were logged in, only the owner of the account would be able to access the history to delete games so the person who borrowed the account couldn't erase any evidence of what they used the account for.

You could try phoning Nintendo as another user suggested and see if they can do anything. Hopefully you'd get someone understanding
