Need game suggestions before I buy one.

#1O2AshPosted 1/31/2013 10:20:30 PM(edited)
Hey guys and gals (:

I was never really a fan of the Zelda, Mario, and all the other major Nintendo franchises. So far, I'm only interested in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (March release) and Super Smash Bro. Wii U (years before release). These two games interest me like crazy though so I'm considering buying a Wii U.

I don't want to buy a system for only two games and then leave it to collect dust though, so I need some games suggestions from you all who are more familiar with the game library of both the Wii U and Wii (never owned one).

On top of my head, here are the games that I love/put a lot of time into:
Kingdom Hearts (all of them)
Final Fantasy VIII onwards (especially VIII and XIII)
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Rune Factory series
Megaman series (all except Starforce)
Music/Rhythm games (most)
Professor Layton Series
Disgaea Series
JRPGs made by Tri-Ace (Star Ocean, Radiata Stories, etc)

What Wii and Wii U games (released or not) would you guys recommend me?

Thanks!

TL;DR:
Don't want to get Wii U for only 2 games, need game suggestions based on my list.

"I was never really a fan of the Zelda, Mario, "

Really, that's about all Nintendo can do.

I read the whole "was never a fan of Mario and Zelda", thought to myself, "man, this guy has a terrible taste in games..."

Look down, mostly JRPGs, with the only decent series you listed being Megaman. Don't know what to tell you, other than, you might like Skyward Sword, since you seem to enjoy games where your hand is held the entire time. But you dislike Zelda, so really, all I can actually recommend, is you never touch the Wii U, and just keep playing your terrible Japanese Arupeegees on consoles that have more of them. Maybe the Gameboy Advance, or PS1 would be more up your alley?

I'm legitimately not trying to sound mean, but this is honestly all I've got. You might like Dawn of the New World, or Xenoblade though, Xenoblade is good, one of the few good JRPGs.

Sorry, I guess I should've elaborated more. It's not that I don't play Mario/Zelda games, because I have. And I also finished quite a number of them and enjoyed playing them. I was just hoping to get more suggestions aside from first-parties. Should've just asked for 3rd party suggestions instead.

Xenoblade looks fun, I'll definitely get it. (:

Cool, thanks for the info.

Hmm, I wouldn't be able to use the GamePad for Xenoblade Chronicles, correct? I'll need a Wii Classic Controller Pro?

Bayonetta 2 is coming, wonderful 101, I heard good things about Zombi U, BO2, I also plan on getting some of the third party ports because I never played them on any other system. Need for speed is coming as well if your into that. I think Yoshi is coming as well.
