Who deserves my money the most?

Received a $100 gift card from my company as part of the holiday season last night and I'm wondering which device of mine most deserves the funds. I've got a PS4, PS3, Vita, Xbox One, Wii U, iPad and PC (i7-2700k + GTX 670 FTW @1440p) all lined up and begging for the added attention, so I ask: which system/games are most worthy?

I'm leaning towards Vita and Wii U. For Vita I'd pick up a slew of games (Guacamelee, Sound Shapes, Tearaway, P4G) and I'd get SM3D for Wii U and possibly a peripheral. But I'm also considering reinvesting in PC hardware/peripherals or paying off future game purchases (Thief, inFamous:SS, Dark Souls 2).

What say ye? Taking any+all suggestions.

I'd definitely go for the Wii U just for the fact it allows you to feel better in having a Wii U. and maybe a ps vita, why not end of the day xbox one and ps4 don't have anymore games until 2014 so might aswel use the money for the good games now

Mario 3D World for sure. Then save the other $40 for the Steam holiday sale. That will get you like 10-20 games.

I can't give a gift card as a charitable donation. Even if I could, I am my own favorite charity.

What has the Wii U done to deserve anything? lol

Funny how most here are suggesting you buy hardware, despite the fact that you clearly wrote the systems you own. It just goes to show you that a good amount of people don't bother reading posts.

I am going to pitch in and recommend Super Mario 3D world, if you don't already have it, and Theif for any system. There's not much else interesting.

The Vita & WiiU need all the help they can get. More P4G and Tearaway owners in the world would be swell.

I'd get Tearaway and Super Mario 3D World, then enjoy a merry platforming Christmas

or i'd buy myself a really nice peripheral or something, like the logitech g700s.

I would consider putting the money to a peripheral, but I've not seen anything worth investing in. I've already got some logitech G930s and the only thing I find wanting is Razer (or other brand) gaming keypad. I don't believe I'd get much use out of it though.

Only issue with Steam is my backlog is gigantic. I've got plenty of games there and I can wait longer for games like Metro Last Light to drop further. It's just near impossible for me to spend $100 on backlog games anymore.

I got a g500. Those are some excellent mice.

Buy a bottle of Johnny Walker black and get destroyed over the holidays all the while thinking about how you hate work.

Wound up buying SM3D and P4G, so I've around $20 and I'm thinking ill pick up VLR for Vita. I was gonna get Tearaway but found out itll be $20 at Gamespot next week so I'll just get it then.

For Wii U, I'd suggest Mario 3D World, or Pikmin 3. For a peripheral, I'd suggest instead another controller to do multiplayer in Mario if you have someone to play with (and don't already have another controller). Enjoy an awesome game.

For upcoming Wii U games, the next two big ones are Donkey Kong and Mario Kart if any of those interest you. Mario Kart might be a while off though.

@Basinboy: Oh nice, you already got Mario. How are you finding it so far? You playing multiplayer?

Hopefully you are not letdown by 3d world like me. No where near as good as the Wii games.
