Kill Your Babies! Weed out the Wii U!



  • Time for another Kill Your Babies! and this time we cutting down the Wii U! The 25 nominated by you the community must be stand your scrutiny! What will be the definitive game for the failed system? As always, just in case there are new players, here are the rules:

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense :joy: )

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only three other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed. This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: Per normal, we will have a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Your kills are your own, so please, be vicious, be remorseless, and most importantly: HAVE FUN!!!

    Don't get me wrong... I'm a huge proponent of Shovel Justice. I just want this list to be more about games unique to the Wii U... Games that signify a reason to be happy that you own this specific console.

    I agree with the previous reason, so I;m taking out Deus Ex because of that

    This went from most anticipated 2016 to fuck you Nintendo of America, after the slight censorship in Fatal Frame V (which i havn't put on this list for that reason) and Xenoblade X I was willing to give them a last chance but what they did to TMS was just unacceptable in my book, so I not only dropped any interest in this game (there is a fan patch that repairs almost everything, so if I ever find a used copy for a decent price...) but also my Nintendo fanboy glasses for good.

    The Wii U does not deserve The Wind Waker because it bore no witness to its genesis. And, while The Wind Waker is an excellent 10/10 game, there are even more prestigious, more Hylian games to honor if we seek to count insubstantial remasters and ports.

    Same reason as the ones above, this isn't a Wii U exclusive, and I happen to have no interest for it, compared to all of the others, so easy choice.



  • And for the record it's "The Wind Waker." While it may be casually referred to as "Wind Waker" during a sentence, as a lone noun the "the" should be included.

    The only game left I didn't know about. Fast Racing is a stupid/unimaginative name for a game though, honestly.



  • @Haru17 I think that's the most positive I've ever seen you on The Wind Waker.

    Don't need a last gen game doing good on this list. Great game, but don't really relate the first one with Nintendo that much.

    I think that's the most positive I've ever seen you on The Wind Waker.

    It's the least favorite of the Zeldas I would rank as 10s (the Aonuma-directed games and Ocarina of Time). It's the rest of you guys' fixation on it that irks me — it's pretty clear from the timeline if not the game itself that less effort and thought went into TWW than other Zeldas. It's still a 10 of course, just a 10 with fewer peaks and more padding. And in regards to this thread, well, I'll just say this:

    The Wii U doesn't even have Skyward Sword.

    I'm really happy with the current list. Anyhow, while we really love this game in my home, I can't say that it stacks up superiorly against so many of the others. I also don't like killing games I'm unfamiliar with. So yeah, great game, just not the best. Somebody has to kill the cute one... Might as well be me.

    That's half the reason I tout it so openly on this forum... What a vicious cycle.

    It's a sub-par fighting game with an odd choice of Pokemon. The arenas are too damn small and there really isn't much depth in the fighting either. Blam this piece of crap!



  • @Haru17 Coincidentally, Wind Waker is the only Zelda I like (to date).

    To your point about people's fixation on Wind Waker, are you willing to say why? If it's because people are non-stop loving it everywhere, I can see your point, but if people are just saying they like it more than other Zeldas here and there, why does it "irk" you? Just curious because there are games I can't stand people universally love but it doesn't bother me.

    Finally to your comment about Skyward Sword, are you referring to Nintendo not committing a quality Zelda title to the Wii U or that no one nominated it because it being a Wii title?

    I simply don't like the series, I tried Tri on Wii U a few times but I find it very slow and boring, and everytime Capcom shits out yet another one I can only sigh. How about Mega Man for a change?

    Somebody had to do it. It's a good-ish game in my opinion, but there's just so many other better games that made the list (and didn't make the list... cough Twilight Princess HD cough how could I forget cough)

    It's an okay game overall, but quite a bad Mario game. It doesn't really know what it wants to be. Tropical Freeze is a far greater platformer.

    Even though it was specifically made for the Wii U and ported to the other consoles, it isn't an exclusive and the last games need to be unique for the system.
