I still remember GAME opening at midnight for me and one other guy as we were the only ones that had it preordered along with a few bits. I was well excited to have a more of a normal console experience and an HD system after the Wii but it didn't turn out to be that, thankfully the Switch has made up for the Wii U already and likely will the Wii as well.

Not sure the Wii, the second most successful home console in history, needed making up for . . .

I remember getting my Wii U and Nintendoland (the shop didn't get NSMBU or Zombi U until a few days later). It was my first HD console, and I had a suite of Wii Remotes and games, so I had an enjoyable enough launch. I absolutely loved the Wii, I'd spent an outrageous amount of time on that machine and it had some of my favourite games of all time. It meant the system transfer was actually nice and emotional for me; it also meant the machine was pretty underwhelming overall. I have some great gaming memories on the Wii U, but very few of them were unique to that machine or really made use of what it had.

I think the Wii U was a necessary stepping stone towards the Switch, and I'm grateful for the good times I had with it. That said, the gulf between the two systems is pretty apparent already and in five years time, when we're looking back on that machine, the conversation is going to be very different. I could already easily put together a top five, if not a top ten, best games of all time from the Nintendo Switch's library.

BotW, SMO (when you play it), MK8D, ...?

But yes, I agree that the Switch has almost outstripped the Wii U's library already.

I was thinking about that when I was typing up my Wii U top ten for andyman's thread. Odyssey, Sonic Mania, Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS and Splatoon 2 would have definitely made my Wii U top ten. Even something like Rabbids Kingdom Battle - a type of game that I don't usually like - would have been in with a shout.

MHXX, Spla2n, ARMS and Shovel Knight are big hitters for me personally. Xenoblade and Skyrim have a lot of potential, DOOM's up there if you like singleplayer shooting. I'm not saying it's the definitive top ten, or even my top ten, but there are great games on the machine which wouldn't look out of place in that conversation and we're only nine months in. At this point in the Wii U's life, Pikmin 3 was the only game worth giving any long-time thought. Since then, other than multiplatform games, the best its done has been the Bayonettas, Bumpie's Party and maybe 3D World.

Same. I couldn't get into it on Switch, but if that had come out on Wii U in those dry, dry months I would have given it days of my life.

My Switch library's actually fairly small: the number of games I've given decent time to, even smaller.  Also, there's a three-game overlap between my Switch and Wii U top tens (Severed, BotW, and MK8(D)).  So actually at this stage, much of my Wii U top ten wouldn't change if I combined the two, bar some orderings.  

That's more due to my pickiness and lack of time, though, than it is the Switch's lack of quality outings.  And I agree that XCX and Skyrim, as well as potentially Rocket League, are ones for the near future.  If you compare it to the Wii U at the same stage in its life, the difference is laughable.

My time on Wii U Launch Day - or WULD, if you prefer - was spent at work. Aww! When I got to saunter up to GAME, I got the machine with Nintendo Land, NSMBU and Batman: Arkham City - Armoured Edition. Different enough games to keep me going for a spell. I didn't even transfer my Wii data over for months - Jo had moved in by then, so we 'downsized' to one console under the TV.

As for Switch + 9 months vs. Wii U + 60 months: there's no contest, as y'all are saying. The Switch is right on top and no mistake.

The most popular thing isn't always the best (Brexit etc) as I was playing a HD console for a year before I had a Wii and I never got on with a Wiimote, that to me I always wanted a GameCube 2 basically but in HD.

The Wii U was almost that and could have been.

This is why I'm so pleased with the Switch as how I play which is mainly docked is giving me what I wanted for a decade as you all say we could come up with a Top 10 tomorrow and it would be a banger.

The Switch is popular though so it's basically the brexit of consoles. Wink
