Can't resist.
There are two other games that are great on the Wii U imo. Zelda Wind Waker (didn't play it on the original release) and Super Mario 3D World. The later is a great game to play with up to 4 people.

Thanks - I think the Mario Kart 8 Bundle comes with a free game (of a limited selection) if you register before a certain date. I was thinking about choosing Wind Waker HD since it is on the list and I never played the original

Super Mario Brothers U made that list too....must not buy...have plenty of games to play.

It's so easy to justify as something to play when friends come over, drinking mario kart is so fun.

I would go with Wind Waker HD over Super Mario Brothers U. Multiplayer on Super Mario Brothers U is horrible. The game is fun, but very similar to previous versions of Super Mario Brothers. We regularly play 4 players on Super Mario Brothers U. Only downside is that it does make the levels easier because everyone has to die at the same time (or run out of lives) before you have to restart the level.

Any purchase of Mario Kart 8 comes with a free game as long as you register it at club nintendo by the end of June or July (forget which).

This is true. There's really not much U in it.

Sorry I meant to say we regularly play 4 players on 3d land. That is actually very fun on multiplayer (but as I said makes it easier to beat the levels).

it's really only for melee players. i don't think people will play smash 4 with Wii U controller (well besides casuals). actually i don't think people will play smash 4 seriously at all. the wii u still isn't hacked right? so it's not like there's going to be a project M. hopefully people learned their lesson with brawl.
