    After the Wiimote, the gamepad is more like a "white elephant" so much untapped potential for new ideas, but hindered by its do-it-all design. Like another article pointed the best design is the simple one. Just because you can do a lot of things with something marks it as something good. The wiimote much like a mouse developers grasp that was a useful way to center a game around it, more than its motion capabilities. But the gamepad as a tablet engraved in a standard controller has the issue that tablet controls are still less appealing for a core experience. I think in slow paced item management games the tablet can be a commodity, having a bunch of lists of items displayed there when needed. But it still is harder to grasp than the wiimote. Like I told a friend I think hardware its justified if you can build an experience that is more fun to play with that hardware alone. Like guitar hero controllers, the Sniper games, the DDR pad, etc. If Nintendo can invent a new genre that succeeds at proving this controller strengths I can see how this could turn around a bit. I mean any developer who invents the next popular genre that surpasses the FPS will be rich. Just that is more a matter of delivering something good that turns into something great than trying to bet into something that "might" be great.

    So this might as well be a list of ALL Wii U games. Or at least all notable games. Wonder how different the list will look like when it's all said and done.

    W101 is horrendously too low.

    --pretty sure you can put nintendo land in asscreed4's place --i mean seriously asscreed4 has only sold 150,000 copies on wiiU --nintendo land is actually TONS of fun, if you were big on wii and have someone else to play with the wiiU's exclusives are what makes it 'what it is' --im not even sure why there would be ANY multiplats mentioned on this list --id rather play wiiparty on wiiU than COD(COD on wiiU??) --Scribblenauts Unlimited(you can play this on PC, but it translates well on wiiU) --game and wario --zombieU --what im saying is --who buys a wiiU to play COD? or Arkham? --have some freaking fun with the damn thing --thats like buying a wii and wii's "Punch Out" --and playing it sitting down with the d-pad --HAVE SOME FUN FOR A SEC --and MH3U is also an EXCELLENT wiiU title --sure its a 'basically just' a beefed up wii game --but nintendo needs to drop more games of that style(more serious and adult themed) on wiiU --and wiiU nailed that games 'needs'
