Is it worth it to buy a Wii U to play Wii games?

#1Meech55Posted 3/20/2013 5:02:12 AM
I'm strongly considering buying a Wii U. I know the system is currently in a drought, but I would love to play the Wii games I missed (Super Mario Galaxy, Zelda, etc.). I'm also very interested in the Virtual Console, so between that and Wii games, I won't be bored with the system.

So basically, I'm wondering:

How is backwards compatibility on the Wii U?

How is the Wii U's virtual console?

No, the Wii mode is awful and poorly implemented. You are better off using a Wii for that purpose.

You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

What's wrong with the Wii mode? Can you elaborate?

He's trolling... it's the exact same. It even records your play history the way the Wii does.

They also look a bit better on the Wii U.
