At least they have these publishers throwing money at them to have these games made. I own a Wii U, so I'm fortunate that I get to play Bayonetta 2. Supposedly, if it wasn't for Nintendo, it wouldn't have been made at all. I'm just happy it's being made. Wonderful 101 was a pleasant surprise too actually; one of my favorite games of last year.
Yeah... I know... but there's so little elsewhere on the U that I want to play. Sure, I'd check out the new Super Mario - even Mario Kart, why not? But I'll admit, the Wii really soured me on Nintendo first-party games. The only Wii game I enjoyed enough to finish was Muramasa.
To me, the Wii U has a modestly sized library of very good games (Kinda like the PS Vita in that regard). Right now I have: Windwaker HD, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 (which I think you would like. I didn't think it looked good into I finally played it), Monster Hunter, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario 3D World, and Mario Kart 8. Then there's the few 3rd party games like Assassin's Creed 4 and Rayman Origins, but you can get those anywhere. Then the virtual console games like Mega Man 2, 3, X and Super Metroid; they look great on a big HD screen surprisingly. That list may not be very convincing, but it presses all the right buttons for me for some reason. I didn't know I wanted it until I actually got it. It's strange. I've gotten a ton of enjoyment out of it. I like playing Mega Man 2 in the middle of the night straight from the game pad, often forgetting to turn on the TV. This was all a long-winded way of saying: I like it.
*until, not into. Silly mistake.
I realized the other day that with the money I spent on Snake, Meryl and Lara, I coulda' bought a second new-gen console. Don't you seduce me, now.
It comes with The Ramzeltron Certified "I like it." Stamp of Approval. Maybe you should give it a year or two to see if anything on it really catches your eye. It's already the best system around for local multiplayer games -- seven out of nine games I listed have multiplayer modes.For now, I'm more than happy with what games it has and what games are coming. (Don't disappoint tomorrow, Nintendo, you have a rocky history with E3 )
I'd be more up for another console if I had near enough time to play even half of what I've got (the Vita alone never stops giving).
Similar reason why I haven't gotten a PS4 yet, I still got my PS3 and PC backlog to finish. So many games, so little time.
