Once upon a time, on the nineteenth night of February 2017, I had fallen fast asleep on my sofa. An issue of Sonic the Comic lay strewn out upon my face, its pages fluttering up and down in the makeshift breeze as my body gently breathed in and out. A fireplace roared away in the corner of the room as the quiet ticking of the grandfather clock permeated the silence. Eventually, the two hands pointed upwards and the simple staccato beats transformed into a melodic chime. A strange magic seemed to fill the air…

We’ve all known it for a long time, but now it’s official: the Wii U is dead. As the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to Nintendo’s phenomenally successful Wii, it’s clear that the Wii U was an unmitigated failure. Whether that’s down to poor marketing, poor communication, poor third party support, or poor specs (or, indeed, a combination of the lot) – that’s beside the point. All that needs to be realised is that it was a flop, and Nintendo learned the hard way that they cannot cruise forward solely on the wave of previous achievements.

However, that’s not to say the Wii U was a bad console. Flawed and unloved, certainly. But bad? For all its faults, it had a pretty solid library of games. Arguably one of the strongest software line-ups for any console, in fact – certainly for first party Nintendo stuff. Basically, the Wii U wasn’t all terrible. There’s no doubt in my mind that it will – or at least ought to be – totally eclipsed by the imminent launch of the Switch, but before the death knell for the Wii U tolls its last, let’s have a quick look back on the top five games that made me feel my purchase was justified…
