The only good games on the Wii U were Smash Bros and Mario Kart. Mario Kart 8 has a more refined and polished remaster on the Switch.

can you name the good wu games regardless of personal preference?
because there will roughly be the same amount of actual good games on both systems.

This I probably agree with. Top tier quality at least. But again, different times so how we compare the 2 will be skewed.


Dreamcast edges it out imo.
Mods are pathetic SJWs who abuse their administrative abilities and couldn't muster a logical defense for their actions to save their lives. Worthless.

No, dreamcast actually had a libary, rather than a handful of games.
Liked From Software before they were cool.

The Wii U has a larger library than the Dreamcast.

No. If anything it's more like the Turbo Grafx 16 just look at the check list.

1. A slight upgrade from the gen before.

2. Not exactly built gamer friendly out of the box. (Though it was more friendly then the TG16)

3. The graphics ranged from truly last gen, to slightly upgraded, to something comparable with this gen.

4. introduced console gamers to a new experience out of the box. (The Wii U gamepad for the U, and eventually later for the TG16. introduced CD gaming to console gaming, believe TG won this round)

5. Brought a lot of unique games not found on the other systems to the party(TG16 had some games some of you all probably have never heard of before, by small Japanese companies, and Wii U, had well Nintendo games.)

6. Missed out on a lot of the bigger third party games you probably have heard of.

I would say that is a far more comparable list.

The two aren't comparable at all, the Dreamcast was a very powerful, well designed console for the time (with the exception of the baffling decision to run the cord out of the BOTTOM of the controller for some reason), and saw a ton of great first/third-party releases during its short life, with some influential titles such as Shenmue. It was only run out of the market due to Playstation brand loyalty, and the fact that the PS2 had DVD playback, at a time when standalone DVD players were still expensive.

The Wii-U on the other hand, while it had some great games here and there, wasn't nearly as technically impressive as its competitors, while retailing for nearly the same price. It also featured probably the most expensive main controller a console has ever had ($150), while very very few developers actually took advantage of this large, awkward controller. Also, due to its competitors offering far more power, and being more conducive to assisting third-party developers, we had third-party support that want from tepid to nearly non-existent very quickly.

If we're talking objectively, the Dreamcast has far more critically lauded games than the Wii-U, it's no contest. Of course this doesn't take subjective taste into account, but if you asked the gaming community at large I feel confident that 9/10 people would say the Dreamcast had the superior library all around.
