What's better: Metroid Prime or Wind Waker? Which should get the Wii U release?

The Gamecube is my favorite system. Pikmin and Mario are my favorite video game series of all time. Pikmin is my favorite series on the Gamecube. Mario (other) games are some of my favorites on Gamecube: Mario Party, Strikers, Paper Mario, etc.

Now, I had not played Wind Waker or Metroid Prime when they were originally released. I only got around to trying them this month.

I attempted to play Wind Waker for more than 1 hour and just couldn't get into it. Investing about that same amount of time into Metroid Prime showed me that game is superior.

How do other Nintendo fans feel? Which game do you like best? I know Zelda fans are very divided over which Zelda game is the best, but Metroid fans almost unanimously believe Prime is the best game in the series.

So how come Wind Waker is getting the Wii U release?

both games are amazing but i would have to give it to prime as it was just overall the better game.

Both are incredible games. I personally prefer Wind Waker, but Prime is amazing, too. It just comes down to personal preference.

It's personal preference, I enjoyed WW deeply while Prime was meh to me.

Though The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is better than Metroid Prime, the Metroid Prime series is actually better.

They're different. Neither is better than the other. Your line of thinking is why this gen has been so homogenized and bland.

As the largest single stock holder in Nintendo, my line of thinking dictates which series are released first.

Well TC both are amazing. However, you may have an easier time getting WW HD over the Prime Triology. Unless you meant Wii also then getting the GC Primes and the Wii Prime 3 loose would be easier.
