With the dawn of a new gaming console comes the endless decision making process regarding what games to pick up for that console. Let’s face it. There are thousands of games you could potentially play on the Wii U. How can you possibly evaluate the opportunity cost of picking up one game only to leave another one behind? Fortunately, some generous people have you covered. Keep reading to find some recommendations for Wii U gaming!

The site Electronictheatre recently provided a list of five games which absolutely needed to be acquired for the Wii U. Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and Twilight Princess were the honorable mentions that did not make the list, but are still highly recommended.

Four of the five top games listed were Resident Evil 4, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Skies, and Ghost Squad. Ranked number two on this list was the latest Legend of Zelda title, Skyward Sword. These recommendations obviously assume that you do not already own these games and a Wii already. If you recently picked up the Wii U, or plan to, these are some of the top games to consider acquiring.

What do you think? Would you have placed other video game titles on the list? Let us know in the comments below!
