I bought a Wii when the world was going crazy over the motion controls..I loved the Mario games and a few others but ultimately it collected dust for me..everyone or most people I know personally that owned one said the same thing for them, they rarely played it..ultimately I honestly felt ripped off by Nintendo after buying the Wii, 4 nun chucks and Wiimotes along with vc games and assorted software..

I do not have Wii U but for those that do have it, do you consider it a success or failure or just barely worth owning?

This. There are a dozen or so titles that might not get ported (but that might change soon), it's still not a massive library.

Good thing is that a lot of these games go for cheap, like sub-$20 used, which is very rare for Nintendo titles.

Nice, I'm thinking of buying a used Wii U..how much do they go for generally?

Depends, since it's discontinued it can get unreasonably high new. It shouldn't be too hard to get one under $200 used from a trusted seller though.

Just make sure you know what you want to play on it.

Some people think anything below a C is an F.

No, it was not a "failure".
I'm sick of off topic threads and abusive mods.

The system was a failure, no matter how much you're damage controlling it. It was barely advertised. Price cuts happened once and the system never got below 300 in stores. The GamePad was yet another forced gimmick. Nobody was buying much outside of Mario and few other outsiders like Splatoon. It's a system that won't be remembered outside of extremist Nintendo fanboys.

It's a failure, regardless of "standards."

I don't have it backwards switch fanboys suck!

Yippee your getting a new pokemon and the 3DS isnt...who cares!
The Switch isn't getting people you think, it's like the Wii original and getting Soccermoms and grandpas.
And children asking for it for christmas.

I'll go back to playing PS4 and Xbox One where the Adult gamers are have a fantastic day!
