Mario Galaxy

Super Paper Mario
Resident Evil 4:Wii Edition
Trauma Center:New Blood
Scarface:The World is Yours
Zack & Wiki
Excite Truck

I put they were equal, but after thinking about it I think the Wii U has a clear edge.

For me the Wii had:

- Wii Sports
- Twilight Princess
- Mario Galaxy
- Metroid Prime 3:Corruption
- Super Paper Mario
- Resident Evil 4:Wii Edition

The Wii U on the other hand has:

- Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (could play this forever)
- SMBU (+ Luigi expansion)
- Pikmin 3
- Wind Waker HD
- Rayman Legends
- Mass Effect 3
- Assassin's Creed III
- Deux Ex: Human Revolution
- Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (sequel to my favorite fighting game ever)
- ZombiU
- Sonic & Friends All-Star Racing (love this game)

Not a huge list, but compared to what the Wii had I much prefer the Wii U one year in. I could, and probably will, play Monster Hunter more than anything until X comes out.

I honestly don't know why anyone considers the original Wii to be the better system...?
It is basically a Game-cube in a different casing.
The only thing that can be said of it is that it has more games...but technically, the Wii-U is much more powerful, and has the benefit of the awesome touch-pad controller.
The Wii-mote is gimmicky as ****.

^ But that's just my opinion.

I'm already on track to have more games on the Wii U then games I have on the Wii in its entire lifespan, so I'll give the edge to the WU for sure. The only thing that the Wii is better at than the WU is the VC service.

I agree the Wii was gimmicky. However, it was still a lot of fun. To this day I'm still enjoying Xenoblde Chronicles on it since it's hooked up in the bedroom and it's relaxing to play before falling asleep.
