Also, if you were to take a wild guess in the dark, what do you expect/hope will be your 5 favorite WiiU games? For me:

Donkey Kong U [similar to Country Returns but with hi-res 2D sprites, not polygons]
Metroid U [similar to Super, with hi-res 2D sprites]
Mario U [3D Mario similar to Sunshine]
Retro Studios new IP game
Zelda U [preferably with better pacing than Skyward Sword, add voice acting, reduce reading]

...to tell you the truth, I hated the beginning of the 3D era and quit gaming for awhile until the Dreamcast and PS2 were released. The old-school, blocky 3-D games were terrible to me, even back then. So I have very few favorites from that era at all that aren't 32-bit 2-D games. So that's really it for N64

Phantasy Star Online (#1 for GCN without question)
Metroid Prime
Soul Calibur 2
Mario Kart Double Dash
Smash Bros. Melee

Did not own a Wii. Bought an HDTV in 2005 and chose the 360 over the Wii because it did not support the resolution that my TV did.

Wii U (currently)
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (this will end up being one of my fave games ever at the rate it's going. Can't believe how addicted to this stupid thing I am...)

All Portables:
I generally hate portables, but I did buy a DS because I love the "MetroidVania" games, and since the idiots that make them cannot seem to come out with awesome console versions like SotN anymore, I am forced to play them on totally inferior handhelds. Never understood this as the market is clearly there for this franchise of games, but no one is doing anything with it on consoles aside from that pretty bad version on the 360 that had you grinding levels over and over.

tl:dr: Wake up Konami and make these awesome games for consoles!!!
But the PS4 has GDDR5 RAM. That's 2 more than DDR3! I bet PCs will take at least 5 years to catch up to this beast.
