Hey guys - just picked up a Wii U after wanting one for a while. I decided on the Limited Edition Wind Waker bundle. The system is a lot of fun but I'm looking to pick up some additional games. What are the absolute must have games on the Wii U right now?

So far I have:

Wind Waker


Pikmin 3

Super Mario 3D World

What others can you think of that I absolutely must pick up and why? And this can include downloadable games too from the eShop as well.

Super Luigi U, Wonderful 101, and Earthbound.

Luigi becausr it is balls hard like a platformer should be.

Wonderful 101 because the combat scenarios and abilities are awesome.

Earthbound because it is one of the coolest RPGs I have ever played.

Nintendoland, especially if you have people over a lot. I think it's like 20 bucks now or something. Game and Wario too.

Yeah, Rayman Legends is a great call. Game and Wario is pretty short on content. But, that Miiverse sketching stuff in it is pretty awesome.

Monster Hunter is great IF you're into that style of game. If you're not sure then give it a try, I was pleasantly surprised by it.
