Just got Hot Wheels World's Best Driver, the last game I needed for a full CIB Wii U set. Now I have all 162 US games and all Amiibo released worldwide so far :D

Just gotta grab Just Dance 2018 when it comes out and I'll have the full set, assuming that's the last Wii U game. What Wii U-related stuff have you gotten recently?

That's either impressive or insane. Probably a bit of both.

The only stuff I've picked up recently has been some clearance games at the local Wal-Mart. Runbow Deluxe, Mario Party 10, and Hyrule Warriors were the last few I got. They are really clearing stuff out.

I notice some of the games look to still be sealed. What percentage of those have you actually played? Are there any "hidden gems" in your collection that people should know about?

If you're picking up clearance stuff, try checking for Snoopy's Grand Adventure. Got that from my Walmart for $5 recently.

I have "played" all the opened ones just to test that they still work, since Wii U discs can be finicky. As for "hidden gems," well, there aren't really any. Most of the best games are well-known first party games or well-known third party games. Most of the "hidden" stuff is shovelware made by companies like Little Orbit >_>

Whether these qualify as "hidden" or not, some somewhat overlooked games that I would recommend getting are: Captain Toad, DuckTales Remastered, Lego City, NES Remix Pack, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.

I tried to zoom into the first picture to see what games you had but its not clear enough to read.
If I may ask, how did u afford so many games. I assume you are an adult.

Use brickseek to check specific games and see if any nearby Walmarts have them on clearance. It is very YMMV. For instance, I was never able to find Giana Sisters at ANY Walmart, until I found this random Walmart that had literally 40+ copies, all on clearance for $7.

It's every game released in the USA. I got many of them on clearance new, or on sale used at GameStop. They just had a 30% off sale on all Wii U games where I was able to get about 60 games for an average of $10 each. I also foresaw many of the "rare" games like Hello Kitty, Turbo, and Croods shooting up in price and grabbed them all on clearance before they shot up.

You can add Just Dance 2018 to that list to make it 163 games when it releases in October. There are no other physical Wii U games announced as of now. EDIT: Well... technically Axiom Verge was announced via the publisher, but there are only preorder listings for the PS4, Vita, and Switch versions. Wii U version is nowhere to be found. So who knows whether it will actually come out...

I just ordered Need for Speed Most Wanted U for $14.99 on ebay. It is a used copy but seller says it is in very good condition so hopefully everything is ok with it. I only have a small Wii U collection when compared to my Playstation systems from PS1 up to PS4.

Here is a link to a picture of my small collection since I could not get the picture to post here. Also Bayonetta 2 is the first print with Bayonetta 1 on a second disc. http://imgur.com/a/QreNh
