Getting a Wii U for Christmas

#1I_Always_DiePosted 12/23/2013 10:27:00 AM
Split the cost of the Wind Waker bundle with my parents. I just bought SM3DW so I have something other than Zelda to play on Christmas. I'm interested in Pikmin 3 but I've never played the first two. Is that important to play those before I start #3? What other games should I buy?

I never played 1 or 2 but picked up pikmin 3 easy. The beginning really helps you learn and there are several different ways to play. My favorite is the gamepad, although I'll replay it with wii mote and nunchuck down the road.

Nintendo land is a great multiplayer game. It also comes with a luigi controller if you buy it fill price. Otherwise I'm sure you can find it cheap elsewhere.

If W101 is really 29.99, then that's a great deal. Excellent game.

Best Buy (and therefore any place that price matches) has all eshop cards for 20% off right now so I'd pick up a couple of those and buy some digital stuff too.

TC, I have 14 Wii U games but I can't honestly recommend any of them because I don't know what games you like.

Please list the genres that you like and include two games that you like in each genre (ie. FPS- Halo & Goldeneye)

No need to play Pikmin 1 & 2 in advance. The third one is the best from a gameplay point of view. And mission mode is very fun (if you try to 100% them). Most played WiiU game for me.

Also consider ZombiU, it's very cheap now.
