My favourites are The Cave and Little Inferno. These games just have the humour and style I love.

My favourite multi player games are definately Chasing Aurora and Trine 2. Nano Assault Neo is a close third though. They all have their qualities, but you simply can't have more fun with a 2P game (Nano), than a 3P game (Trine) or 5P game (Chasing Aurora).
I guess The Cave is a great multiplayer game as well.

I also have Puddle and Mighty Switch Force! and both are good for different reasons, but Puddle has more fresh ideas, online leaderboards, and a cool subtile narrative/plot, three things I really miss in Mighty Switch Force!.

So my ratings are

9/10 The Cave
9/10 Little Inferno
8/10 Chasing Aurora
8/10 Trine 2 - Director's Cut
8/10 Nano Assault Neo
8/10 Puddle
7/10 Mighty Switch Force! - Hyper Drive Edition

I got a Nintendo Points card just to get Balloon Fight for 30 cents :p but have no idea of what else to get. I hear Trine 2 is really good.

Trine 2 IS really good. The physics can be a bit buggy at times but the art style is amazing.
The game play is pretty simple and not very challenging (playing on normal) however some of the platforming/puzzles will really test your wits.

Best game I own for the Wii U so far (which isn't saying much, I only have 3 games so far).

I'd recommend most of the Indie titles. There isn't a bad one there IMHO. Best ones in my opinion are Zen Pinball 2, Little Inferno, Trine 2, Mighty Switch Force HD

I really hope you didn't get a Nintendo Points card...

Runner 2 is the best game on the eShop atm.

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?

My new ratings:

9.2/10 Toki Tori 2
9.1/10 The Cave
9.0/10 Little Inferno
8.6/10 Zen Pinball 2
8.4/10 Chasing Aurora
8.3/10 Trine 2 - Director's Cut
8.1/10 Nano Assault Neo
8.0/10 Puddle
7.3/10 TANK! TANK! TANK! DL
7.2/10 Mighty Switch Force! - Hyper Drive Edition
6.0/10 Kung Fu Rabbit

New additions:

Toki Tori 2
An original, polished, beautiful openworld 2D puzzle adventure. It's bursting with fresh ideas, lush environments and cute creature design, as well as a great soundtrack. But beware: it's not a platformer - as in 'no jump'. You can't rush through the world as you have to solve puzzles to get forward. It's a game for explorers, collectors, thinkers. Try&error is part of the game concept as well, but there's no punishment, only rewards. My new Wii U eShop favourite for sure.

Zen Pinball 2
I bought 11 tables so far and they're all of superb quality. Even the Marvel ones, a franchise I despise, is fun to play in (zen) pinball form. The game was updated some weeks ago but you still can't sort the tables. While not gamebreaking it's a bit of a mess for people who like to tidy up their collections.

TANK! TANK! TANK! DL
Originally a retail title, the DL version offers you content in DLC packs. It's a simple action game that's quite fun in multiplayer. 9,99 Story mode gets tiring and repetitive as you have to repeat nearly 40 stages almost 20 times to unlock everything. My Kong mode is just an asymetric minigame not that fun either for the price - in fact 1.99 should be its regular price at most, not unreasonable 9.99. Frequent loading times, horrible voice acting and unskippable cutscenes lower the experience as well.

Kung Fu Rabbit
A quick smartphone port and unimaginative Meat Boy clone with cheap graphics but cute art style, and only 2 or 3 abysmally short track loops (no, it's not what I call music or even soundtrack). Took me only 5hrs to fully complete. However, the 160 extremely short and rather easy levels were strangely addicting to beat. Good controls and classic concept together with the low price of 4,99 levitate this above mediocrity.

I fully recommend Nano Assault Neo and MSF HD Editon. Nano is fun and gorgeous. MSF is just great. Even if you already have the 3DS version of MSF, get the Wii U version. Trust me, it's more than just nicer graphics and off tv play.

Okay, decision time! Should I buy Little Inferno, which looks incredible, for my Wii U -OR- should I buy the LoZ: Oracles for my 3DS? I am torn.

Little Inferno- I have played games vaguely similar to this before, but nothing near this concept. My only fear is that I will get bored with it after a couple hours. I think it would be really cool, though, to play with fire and see what all kinds of achievements I can figure out and do.

LoZ: Oracle of Ages & Seasons- I have never played a 2D Zelda game which is why I am eager to delve into it. A thing that I am scared about is starting my 2D Zelda game play in the wrong place. What if I should start with an earlier Zelda title? I am thinking, though, that it will be a rewarding experience that will entice me to play the entire Zelda series.

Dont worry about startin in the wrong place, the oracle games is a good start :) the opening scene is as confusing to me (I have played all the zelda games) then it is to you (I think) But I have never played little inferno, I just never understood the game and what the point in the game is

Trine 2 has been one of my favorite games that I purchased, the sheer amount of content for 9.99 is totally worth it, pick that game up!

I believe Urban Trial FreeStyle is coming both to the eShop & 3DS, i own the PS3 version which will be the same as the Wii U version, unless it gets more content. But if your into Trial Bike games this ones a very good game & worth getting. You can upgrade your bike with different types of frames, different powered engine's etc, which is the key to getting real good times. You have bags of money in hidden places, tricky places or easy places to collect which you buy bike parts with, but it's up to you which parts to use in any different order. You have different modes also like time trails,pulling off stunts etc the games is challenging and very addictive.

I highly recommend cloudberry kingdom. It's very challenging and addictive. It gets very hard but still not impossible if you have the patience, easy to learn but really tough to master!

Well I'd recommend Little Inferno unless you're interested in quantity. It's quite arguable how fun you'd have with Little Inferno but that was seemingly the point, which made it entertaining again. Oracle of Ages and Seasons are good, like every Zelda, but it has a major problem of trying way too hard to force a gameboy Zelda to be this epic OOT worthy adventure by being needlessly frustrating and trying to cram every single bit of gameplay it can into certain areas and you will go back to your item screen approximately 1 billion times between both games.

I'd suggest getting Link's Awakening instead.

I recommend Kung Fu Rabbits to anyone who wants a platformer with very tight controls to play on the gamepad while listening to music or a podcast. Yes environments are repetitive, but the gameplay is very enjoyable, and the later level are quite difficult (which is always a nice thing).
Not the best eShop game in any way, but a good little distraction that you'll surely enjoy if you're into platformers and you've already played Mighty Switch Force.

So I am thinking about buying a $20 card today. I would want to upgrade Zelda 1 and 2 but after that I am thinking Pokemon Rumble U, Duck Tales Remastered, or Giana Sisters. What do you guys think? I will only have $18 after upgrading the two Zelda VC titles.

Is it worth getting Chasing Aurora? Its on sale right now.. It looks kinda sweet looking at trailers and gameplay. But as i understood the developer themselves has said that the game was rushed out?

Single Player is just flying in circles trying to beat times. I hear multiplayer is awesome, but it doesn't have online. Over all it is a cool concept and I enjoyed it for awhile
