While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Wii U Games - 2013 Edition

Posted on Sunday, December 29 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff



20. Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Treyarch's best Call of Duty title made its way to Wii U in excellent fashion. While it is hardly the most popular version of the game, it offers some interesting features that set it apart from Black Ops II on other platforms. With the GamePad allowing a second player to have a screen of their own, local play doesn't require players to share a screen. That in and of itself is reason alone to give the Wii U version a chance.



19. Game & Wario

While Wii Party U offers an entertaining way to kill some time with your friends and family, it lacks the charm and personality that Game & Wario brings to the table. As such, this wacky and downright silly title edged out the aforementioned party game. The Wario-centric title have always offered loads of humor, and that's here in spades. Plus, it makes use of the GamePad in some really interesting ways, a quality that is ironically hard to come by.



18. Need for Speed: Most Wanted U

Believe it or not, Wii U is home to a handful of really great racing games, despite the noticeable absence of a Mario Kart title for the platform. Electronic Arts brought one of Criterion's greatest racing games to Nintendo's console, and it's an absolute blast to play. Whether racing against your friends or taking on the various challenges scattered around the world, there is so much to do in Most Wanted that you won't likely get bored anytime soon. 



17. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

The other truly impressive racing title on Wii U is from the folks at Sega. Sure, the fact that it stars a whole host of iconic Sega characters is one of the reasons Racing Transformed is so amazing, but the unique track design and vehicle transformations make this a truly engaging and immersive racing experience in their own right. Switching from land to water to air is fast, fluid, and seamless, and adds a lot of variety to each race. It's also gorgeous, which certainly doesn't count against it.



16. bit.Trip Runner2

This unique rhythm-based running game is one of Wii U's finest downloadable gems. It's got genius level design and pitch-perfect controls. It's hard to put to words exactly why the bit.Trip games are so amazing; they simply need to be experienced firsthand. Runner2 sports improved visuals and some interesting little additions that add up to a wholly superior experience. It also offers that tough-as-nails difficulty for those looking for a real challenge.
