IGN has put together a list of the top 25 games for Wii U, and our favorite green-clad hero placed not once, but twice! Hyrule Warriors came in at number 18, while The Wind Waker HD, a remake of a game originally on the GameCube, ranked fourth, besting titles such as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Bayonetta 2, and Pikmin 3.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was also ranked and came in right after The Wind Waker HD, just below Super Mario 3D World and IGN’s top pick, Mario Kart 8.
How do you feel about IGN’s list? Would you have placed things differently? The Wind Waker HD is definitely a great game, but having an HD remake as the fourth-ranked game on your next-gen system is a little unsettling. There could also be the possibility that The Wind Waker is just that good of a game.
I think I would also place Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at number one, as for me, almost nothing besides Zelda beats Nintendo’s ultimate fighting game.
