Nintendo’s little console may be struggling a bit, and it certainly hasn’t had the strongest or most robust lineup this year – but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t home to some of the best games available not just on the Wii U, but on any system. Which though, is the best? What was the best game released on
Forget David Blaine, Monolith Soft seems to have worked their magic yet again by creating what could possibly be the biggest game this generation. The pre-release rumours of this game’s world being bigger than The Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 combined were in no way exaggerated, it’s massive! You might think that such a massive game would struggle to run on the WiiU but not only does it look absolutely gorgeous, it runs like a dream too with frame drops few and far between.
What I really love about this game is that it feels like an RPG of old. It had me tinkering in menus and trying out different combinations of abilities, skills and gear so that I could find the perfect build to beat that one annoying boss. Xenoblade Chronicles X takes me back to a time when RPG mechanics weren’t as streamlined as they are today, and I truly adore this game for it.
Oh, did I mention you can actually customize and pilot transformable flying mechs with photon sabers? No? Well you can, and it’s the coolest thing ever.

Xenoblade is definitely my game of the year on the Wii U, followed by Splatoon which was a surprise hit with me. I enjoyed Super Mario Maker but thought it was a bit over hyped.
