Hello folks, I am curious what you think is the best first game, or first three games to get, for the Wii U. Super Mario 3D World is likely a top 3 for me, but any other suggestions?

Mass Effect 3: Special Edition is easily the best game on the system. I would go with that.

My bad, let me clarify. I'm looking mostly for the Nintendo exclusives like Mario, Zelda, etc. I heard Mass Effect is great, but never got into it because I'm the type of person that doesn't play RPG's unless I start them from the first game...

If you don't have a switch or plan on getting one anytime soon, Breath of the Wild is an obvious choice.

Seems a strange self imposed limitation. I'm sure google has a list of what you seek.

I was absolutely planning on waiting until I get a Switch for the new Zelda, since I imagined it would look a little better from a graphical standpoint.

Super Mario 3D World

Treasure Tracker(Captain Toad, I believe)

Bayonetta 2(Try for the one that comes packed with the first one)

Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD

Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD

Super Mario U+ Luigi U

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE

Paper Mario: Color Splash(A lot of people did not like this one, I don't know why, I enjoyed it, it's not perfect, but it's not bad either.)

The Toad game I am definitely getting because it's like the only solo Toad game in Nintendo history I think, but is it really better than stuff like Mario Kart 8, Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors, Star Fox Zero?

The graphical difference is really negligible. If you're planning to wait more than a month to get a Switch, I'd say it's not worth the wait.

On the other hand, the improvements made to Mario Kart 8 on the Switch are much more important and the price for the Switch version is a way better bargain, so definitely wait for that.


Anyway, my list is:

1. Super Mario 3D World
2. Breath of the Wild (unless you're getting a Switch within the next month)
3. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Mario Kart 8 is on Switch? Then I'll wait to get it on there... But with Breath of the Wild, it is absolutely going to be the Switch for me... I recently bought the Wii U to play the exclusives, but also the Wii games...

What do you think of Star Fox in the place of Wii U Breath of the Wild?
