Hey guys, I'm new here and have some questions, hope you can answer.
Well I haven't had a nintendo console since Nintendo 64. I went to Dreamcast, Xbox, PS3 and now PS4.
Anyway, what I'm missing nowadays are games that are actually FUN to play. Not like those you finish the story and never touch the game ever again.
So I'm thinking of buying Wii U, since it has Mario Kart 8 (I still play Mario Kart 64 till these days!) and some other good platformers like Super Mario 3D World.
Well, another good point for Wii U, is that I heard it can play Wii games. But how is the gameplay for those games on Wii U? They play good with the pro controller, for example? (EDIT: Just saw that they only work with the Wii controller...)
Since I never owned a Wii, I think I could really enjoy it's vast lineup of games, like they were new.
I can see that for people who played all the Wii games, the backwards compatibility might not be a huge thing. But do you think the Wii U has that much better value for someone that never player Wii or Gamecube?
I think it could fit good as a 2nd console for me (or maybe even turn into my primary). Should I ever want to play those AAA games, I have my PS4 next to it, anyway.
