Hitting a hole in one during a round of Wii Sports Club is arguably the most proud one can feel in their home. Wii Sports Club Golf may be the most fun you can have in your home. Scratch that, it is without a doubt the most fun you can have in your home.


#4 Mario Kart 8

Mario Kart 8


Mario Kart 8 is an instant classic (Wii U Mario Kart 8 Bundle). It delivers on what made the previous versions of Mario Kart great and builds on it. The different races look stunning. The battle mode has never been better. Though, we wish they would bring back Baby Park.


#3 Super Smash Bros.

Wii U Super Smash Bros bundle

Super Smash Bros


Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U delivers an action packed battle royale! Create your own Super Smash Bros levels. Play Super Smash Bros online! Unlockable Super Smash Bros. characters include: Dr Mario, Bowser Jr, Jigglypuff, and many more classics!

Looking at the above screenshot, it’s easy to see why Rayman Legends made the list. The visuals make it a joy to play. It’s one of the most enjoyable 2D platformers we’ve played. The music from Rayman Legends adds a really nice layer of fun to the gameplay.


#1 Super Mario 3D World

What exactly does it take to be the best Wii U Game? Answer = Catsuits. Super Mario 3D World provides an amazing gaming experience from start to finish. The game design is vibrant and full of life. Featuring creative stages that increase in difficulty as the game progresses.


Editor’s Note: Honorable mentions – Pikmin 3, Splatoon, Zelda: The Wind Waker, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and Super Mario Maker.
