    Worst Wii U game ever?

    The Wii U had some rotten luck with bad games, but what game is the worst?

    New Super Luigi U

    Okaaaaayyyy... Maybe not the worst game but it's the one I most lamented spending money on!

    I would say Mighty No 9. A game so awful that it bricked Wii U consoles.

    Probably the Animal Crossing amiibo party game. I didn't buy it, though. I didn't buy games I didn't like, other than maybe Shovel Knight.

    I actually think Nintendo made some great first party games for the Wii U.

    New Super Mario Bros. U
    Super Mario 3D World
    The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD
    Hyrule Warriors (not really first party, but close enough)
    Wii Party U
    Nintendo Land
    Game & Wario
    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
    Yoshi's Woolly World
    Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
    Mario Kart 8
    Pikmin 3
    etc.

    I'd say Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival and here's why...

    First of all, that game was announced at a time when fans were craving (and still are)
    for an all new, HD Animal Crossing game. Then you look at what Nintendo did with
    the Animal Crossing DLC tracks in Mario Kart 8 and how beautiful that looked in HD,
    not to mention, Mario Party 10 was already available on Wii U and then they go ahead
    and hit us with that crap game!
    So unnecessary & a complete cash grab to simply sell amiibos,
    & from what I remember, the AC amiibo line didn't even sell that well. There was too many of
    them, a lot left over on shelves, & too big of a line, 3 packs, etc..

    Second to that would be Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash.

    You don't know how excited I was when I saw 8-bit Isabelle, and then it turned into that shit-fest...

    I found Nintendo Land an utter dissapointment. I guess that after Wii Sports (and Nintendo's Wii U promo videos) I had a level of expectation that the toss they released never met. I think there was only one game I enjoyed on it and that was the Metroid one. Why did they make it look like a Wii game too!?

    ..and now a new Animal Crossing for Switch that u can take anywhere is finally on the horizon!
    As well as Mario Party 11 (2019)

    Nintendo getting it all wrong with the Wii U & getting it all right with Switch...
    in terms of what IP & games they are greenlighting.

    I actually enjoyed several of the mini-games. It's been awhile, but the ones that stick out to me are: Metroid, the F-Zero one, Mario Run, the Luigi's Mansion one, and the Animal Crossing one was ok. I was disappointed with the Zelda one. Nintendo Land sure didn't live up to Wii Sports Resort, though. I loved that game.

    Nintendo Land is really fun.
    I pretty much just played Mario Chase, Luigi's Ghost Mansion and Animal Crossing Sweet Day.
    It's the perfect party game, and is played best with 4-5 players.

    You guys have forgotten about stuff like Meme Run and The Letter already?

    Also Nintendo Land is amazing.

    Worst game that I own and have tried is Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Its motion controls are unresponsive and the game itself just wasn't engaging. At least I only paid $20.

    I can't believe you guys waste your money on crap. The worst game I bought was Shovel Knight, and even I got a little enjoyment out of it. My kids got a lot of enjoyment out of it. I just don't waste my money on games I don't think will be any good.

    I own a Barbie game on Wii U, I just remembered.
    It's oddly not the worst game I own.

    With all the negativity in the world, and how no one seems to be able to agree upon anything, it's nice to know that we can all agree Amiibo Festival (I will not tarnish AC's name by adding it next to that... THING) was a hot pile of garbage. Even Tommy agrees, and you know a Nintendo game is bad when even he doesn't like it.

    Yeah, that game was a kick to the Jimmy-Junk of Animal Crossing fans everywhere.

    It's not wasting if you're enjoying how awful the game is. But I don't expect you to understand - you probably don't enjoy purposely watching bad movies either

    Haha. Exactly! My gaming and movie time is precious enough that I'd rather spend it on stuff that I like.

    Dont let my daughter catch you saying that, she loves that game and the Rio games one.

    And she also says that Sonic is much better than Mario, it's a fact!

    An iPad is the first thing I would get if I got a child.

    I actually like spending time with my daughter. She's a crazy and funny little person. She's got a tablet PC and she'll game with me sometimes but the time spent doing it is heavily policed (by me!). Too many fields to run in and trees to climb to spend too long indoors.

    Get a Kindle Fire. They're way cheaper, and they still have a ton of free app games.

    Meanwhile over here, we're half-way through April, and it's still snowing.

    Next week, it's supposed to be warm every day, though.

    They take A LOT of energy, an ability to function without sleep and the agreement that you're forfeiting your life until they're grown.. Totally worth it though. You'll know when you're ready. I didn't start a family until I was thirty-one!
