2013 or 2014, it is tough, both were great years.


2014, its not even a contest.

2014. It had Mario Kart!

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

2015, Splatoon and Xenoblade Chronicles X some of my top games of the gen not just on the Wii U :)

Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros. and Bayonetta make 2014 my only choice!
@OP you mispelled Game & Wario, just a heads up ;)

Also you need to add Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE to 2016 :)

Oh man, this is hard. I think 2013, 2014, and 2015 are all eligible.

I need to think more on this.

Bayonetta 2....'nuff said.

I would say 2014. DKC:TF, Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Smash Wii U, Captain Toad.

Even though I think XCX is my favorite Wii U game, and I think Splatoon is amazing, that 2014 lineup is hard to compete with. In fact, I think that 2014 was the year Nintendo really came to realize that the Wii U would never turn around. All those games and only a 10% YoY increase on Holiday sales from 2013.
