The Nintendo Airstream Tour was just in Denver and I had the opportunity to play a few games coming out or recently released for the Wii U. While the Wii U is still doing its best with keeping up with the competition there is no shortage of games. Unlike the current generation of consoles and next generation, Nintendo has offered a totally different console for gamers. The PS3/Xbox 360 and PS4/Xbox One are nearly identical in not only the hardware, but the game choices. Everything is multiplatform these days so it doesn't necessarily matter what console you get.
However, the Wii U offers not only original games but a new hardware functionality that you cannot get in the current/next generation consoles. There is no denying that. This list will tell you the games that I played and my experience with them. No shooters here, and I am thankful for that.
