Well duh. Monster Hunter is the best game ever, and the Wii U was pretty much a waste of plastic other than that game.

A good read there, despite the shocking opinions being thrown in the way of Earthbound and SSB4.

Still, I can't say reading the list of games made me wish I'd had a Wii U or anything. It seems like the bulk of that list has made its way to Switch or 3DS, so I've experienced most of the what that console had to offer anyway.

Yes!  I'd completely missed one of the Monster Mash fellas not having a Wii U. Duh! He is, however, mostly right about the non-essentiality of its ownership.  (SSBU was a big improvement on 3D, though, if you weren't already done with the latter.)

Following on from the Galaxy games was always going to be difficult, and Nintendo were on to something with 3D Land on the DS; this however was a massive step up.

I'll have more to say about this later, but I didn't vote for it.  Not enough of a step up for my liking.  As for MK8, maybe in 2016.  I voted it ninth.  Can completely understand why it placed where it did though.

Some agreements and disagreements (my opinion, of course):

Pikmin 2 is the best Pikmin. I can't deal with the timer on the first game and while the third one has some brilliant DLC modes, it didn't quite reach the heights of the second game.
Smash 4 is better than Melee. I'm no pro Smash player but it plays great and has an insane roster PLUS the best solo/career mode. I remember Melee fondly as it was arguably the best local multiplayer game at that time. Mas, interested to hear why you feel Melee is better.

Jimbob - not sure how having run and punch on the same button would work on Rayman Legends. The speedier levels (including the musical ones) require you to sprint, jump, hover and hit enemies. Can't recall what button it is on Wii-U, but on Other Formats the run button is a shoulder trigger similar to FIFA or PES.

Mas, I would have thought you'd defend the Wii-U as it has a lot in common with the Dreamcast. Great games, experimental ideas and accepted by few. The great games may have ended up elsewhere but there were 20-30 quality pieces of software. I guess in today's climate where the PS4 has arguably 50-80 quality games, it doesn't hold up so well.

I've not played 3D World - hopefully pick up a Wii-U again one day as there are a lot of games I'd like to revisit with my daughters too (Kirby, Yoshi, Captain Toad). Does anyone think the Wii-U servers will go offline in the next 2-3 years? I know the Wii Shop is closing soon...

I'm surprised about number 2 - didn't we have a very split forum when we originally played it? Eh? Maybe time has been kind to it; I've softened my line on it (and put it in my Top Ten). Mind you, it had to chart somewhere! Wink

The winner is a rightful winner. A game which has helped to kickstart yer man Switch. Cool Great stuff on both machines. Thumbs Up!

I also voted MK8 rather low like you Balla as a lot like SMASH4U it didn't really click with me, it was only this month when we played MK8D one Sunday that I thought yep this game is great.

gJones I would have said Brawl (which is the worse SMASH) has the best single player content and SMASH4U really lacks it and would be one of the things to improve with a Switch version. I'm also no Pro SMASH player but the characters and everything doesn't feel right to me to play, I don't know what it is but whatever is different is what I like about Melee.

I feel the Wii U is more of a SEGA Saturn which also had some great games but no one really remembers it or cares and it was stuck in between two systems which have a lot of praise, sure the Dreamcast is a cult favourite where the Switch will be a 100m seller but both are cared about. I guess the only thing Saturn has got going for it, is not all it's best games have made it elsewhere (looking at Panzer Dragoon Saga) where you would guess all of the best Wii U games will end up on something else (it's only true Zelda was a launch title for Switch for instance), making the Wii U rather pointless in 2018 and beyond unless you what to collect for it and that's about it (also still expensive).

The game I would have liked place in 10th over BotW (as people will think of it and played on Switch foremost) is Hyrule Warriors.

Aye, it's a shoulder. Basically I'd have it so you'd press the button again to get another punch in, which could potentially slow down your momentum, but then I'd redesign the whole level design based on that. I mean I'm not asking for much! Razz (I appreciate I have no way out of this argument without sounding like an unpopular arsehole!)

How long is it fair for us to wait on tenterhooks before using Andy's signature against him? Razz

At least Splatoon is in the top 5 this time Wink As good as Rayman Legends is I'd personally bump that down to joint 4th instead.

There's some good recognition in that list. It's actually much more like the top ten that I expected than the actual top ten! Shocked
