Well you can't know if you feel the Nintendo magic before playing the games. I for one would say give it a shot.

Honestly, last generation I, too, spent most of my time playing sports and western RPG games... of which I quickly got bored of. I played them because nothing else interested me, and that's where Nintendo came in and changed my gaming.

Splatoon, Smash, Mario Kart 8, Pikmin 3, 3D World, NSMBU, Donkey Kong, Lego City, Bayonetta 2, Mario party 10 (if you like a bit of fun casual), Captain Toad, Kirby rainbow paintbrush, Wonderful 101, Zombi U, Hyrule warriors, Sonic Lost world (seriously underrated)

Actually it's the opposite in my opinion. When you buy a Nintendo console you get games you don't find on other systems, at least not in that superb quality. Which makes it the perfect console for people who play other genres on other systems.

OT: Yoshi's Woolly World (the most adorable game this gen), Mario Kart 8, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. 3 fantastic games from 3 different genres for people who want to get into Nintendo games.

Non-Nintendo: Bayonetta 2 (it has an easy mode for people like me and - judging from your OP - you), Deus Ex: Human Revolution (arguably the best version of the game due to great implementation of gamepad).



Around the Network

Splatoon and Smash!



Aside from the games you mentioned

Splatoon, you like shooters and this is a very fun and refreshing one
Windwaker, not an rpg but it does have a world to explore and is an overall great game
Smash bros, especially if you have friends to play with
Mario 3d world, can't go wrong with this one

Bayonetta 2 is great but kinda niche, not for everyone
Pikmin 3 is great if you like strategy
Keep in mind wii u has wii BC. Many great games there, you can get them cheap as well. I won't go into all the obvious ones, but punch out and red steel 2 are freat games that are often overlooked.
Check out virtual console! I'd get super mario world

1-Splatoon;
2-Bayonetta 2 (includes Bayo 1);
3-Mario Kart 8;
4-Super Smash Bros for Wii U;
5-save money for stuff that'll come by the end of this year/Zelda U



Get Yoshi and save the rest of your money for upcoming games



Really hard to recommend you any games since you listed FPS and sport games.
The Splatoon bundle is currently slightly cheaper than the others at the moment, but there will probably be a better bundle by christmas.

As for games, tried Deus Ex on any other consoles? If not get it on Wii U. A great old school FPS game that rewards planning rather than bullet soaked gun set pieces.
Bayonetta 2 comes with the 1st game so you are getting 2 games for the price of one.
ZombiU is a game some people like while some hate it, but since its dirt cheap why not?
