I just picked up a Wii U over the weekend, and I am quite impressed. I'm a PS4 owner, and honestly haven't touched it since I got the Wii U (Not that I won't in the future). I'm an avid Zelda fan, so I just had to have Wind Waker HD (Seriously, where is OOT HD?). I love that I can play it on the tablet while my wife watches TV. Greatest invention ever!



Anyways, Looking for suggestions for games. I basically know the main titles like Mario/kart and Zelda, but have no idea what else I might like.

Welcome and congrats on getting a Wii U.


  • Super Mario 3D world
  • Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
  • Wonderful 101
  • Bayonetta 2
  • Nintendoland
  • Pikmin 3
  • New Super Mario U and Luigi U
  • Hyrule Warriors
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Super Smash Bros
  • Captain Toad - coming out in 3 days!

and others.. this is a good start.


Hyrule Warrior is a Zelda Fan Service at it's best Lots of content and replay value including DLC. Mario Kart 8 is superb and has DLC which gives a ton of new content. Great online racing.


I will leave others to sway you.

I won't make a list of games as it's already been done above.
I'm just going to add that you should really check eShop's Indie games and Virtual Console. Being a Zelda fan, you'll find some treats there! :)

congrats on your purchase! i would also recommend Nintendo Land. It is probabl $20 or so on Amazon. it's a decent collection of mini games and party games. later on, i'd also recommend Sonic and All Stars Transformed. It's a decent racing game.

Welcome to the Wii U! Some of my favorite games, and I know this will stir some people's ire, are Call of Duty: Black Ops II and CoD: Ghosts, also the Arkham titles are great and one of my all-time favorites is Splinter Cell: Blacklist. 

The Disney Infinity stuff is a blast! My kids and I play it together.

The Duck Tales HD remake is good fun.

Lego City: Undercover is a fun and funny game.

Assasnins Creed games rock and I could go on.

But remember, there are no games on the Wii U.

Welcome to the Nintendo gang, congrats on your recent investment. There are tons of great games out for the machine, most of them have already been posted. But I agree with Rayman Legends being miles better on Wii U than other platforms(I have it on ps4 and it looks pretty, but there is just something missing). See ya around

Picked up Mario Kart 8 the other day. What a great game! My 2 year old can actually play it with me which is nice.
