Exclusives do matter, even more so for Nintendo. One of the biggest problems with the Wii U was that Nintendo's release schedule for those vital exclusive games was abysmal. Especially in the crucial first 12 months. 

First 12 months of Wii U exclusives...

November NSMBU (Underwhelming paint by numbers sequelitis.)
December   NOTHING
January        NOTHING
February      NOTHING
March          NOTHING
April             NOTHING
May              NOTHING
June             NOTHING
July               NOTHING
August          Pikmin 3
September  NOTHING
October       NOTHING

But what about Windwaker HD? Sorry but remakes/remasters are available on an older system and thus not exactly exclusive. They also don't tend to move units unless they have Kart in the name. 

It did have Zombi U but ported in 5 years later to Xbox One/PS4 I think

I also neglected to mention Wonderful 101. Both games failed to either break a million sales or receive high praise from the general consensus of critics. ZombiU sits at 77 on metacritic, which isn't bad, but also not critical acclaim. Wonderful 101 has a similar score of 78. 

I mean, if a game sells really well despite average critic scores, I can see why it should be worth mentioning. Or if a game sells poorly, but is praised by critics, the same thing goes. But neither? 

The sentence below is false.
