Because there aren't any.

Nope. I don't see anything. Sorry but 100s of launch games should have been available and then 200 more should be announced on a daily basis. Like with every other console launch. Remember how awesome the 3ds and Snes launches were?

Fun game: Find a Wii U thread on GameFAQs where the word "troll" isn't typed by post #10. Good luck.
"TL;DR" = My parents; failed me.

Because announcing games way, way before they're suppose to come out is stupid. It does nothing but irritate the impatient.

Pretty much. As dry as things feel right now, there are always things to look forward to in the future. Hopefully anyway.

Because there aren't many, which is par for all Nintendo consoles since the N64.

Companies release developer diaries to keep the fan entertained and keep them updated with the status of a game, something Nintendo's never done.

which is a bad thing....you can't expect fans to blindly buy your product and hope the future validates their purchase

Nintendo can, because they always do.

I prefer it this way, having them announce a definite release date when they are close enough to be sure of it. If they put a release date way ahead of time (for example, SSBB), it will be disappointing if it gets delayed. I'm fine with the vague "we're working on it" stuff.

Virtual Boy notwithstanding, no Nintendo console has failed to please me yet. So I have full confidence in their consoles even without definite release dates for the games.
