    The activity log is kind of wonky but I tabulated the hours played of some of my most played Wii U games.

    Tank! Tank! Tank! 268 hours
    Lego City Undercover 267
    Nintendoland 253 hours
    Mario Kart 8 214 hours
    Super Mario 3D World 175 hours
    New SMBU 135 hours

    My copy of Lego City broke too or I think that would be #1. Tank tank tank I didn't even buy the full game just part of it digitally. I am sure Netflix youtube and the web browser are used a ton too. This is for me and my kids but it seems like I have gotten a pretty good value.

    I have played over 50+ games on the Wii U but two that got most hours out of it were AC4 and Mario Kart 8, I still play MK8 a lot.. Mario Kart 8 saved the Wii U from being a total disaster.

    I don't have the log open, but my girlfriend bought us a Wii U two days ago, and we haven't stopped playing it yet. :)

    Not giving hours. The Wii U is a fun system though.

    I bought the Wii U in December so I'll go by the monthly stats.

    December 2014: 41 hours and 8 minutes in total.
    Super Smash Bros: 41 hours and 4 minutes. The rest was eshop and miiverse.

    January 2015: 48:31
    Bayonetta: 27:18
    SSB: 18:26
    Shovel Knight: 1:46
    Mario Kart 8: 40 minutes
    The rest in eshop, miiverse, Netflix, Youtube.

    February 2015: 8 minutes, all in the web browser.

    March: 5:56
    Hulu: 4:43
    Netflix: 1:13. Shameful two months, but I spent more time watching movies and still multitasking with Pokemon on 3DS.

    April: 65:24
    Bayonetta 2: 38:50
    Bayonetta: 8:39
    Hulu Plus: 8:08, only because I left it playing South Park to drown out the noise of my sister's birthday party, taking place 2 floors down, while I tried to sleep.
    Super Smash Bros: 5:46
    Netflix: 1:59
    Internet Browser: 1:17 (I wanted to see how it plays flash videos, plus lurking on a cam site)
    Shovel Knight: 32 minutes.
    Eshop: 10 minutes
    Mario Kart 8: 2 minutes.
    The Legend Of Zelda: 1 minute.

    May so far: 9:04
    Bayonetta 2

    So I played Bayonetta 2 the most at nearly 48 hours, SSB trailing behind. I'm definitely going to play more on Wii U, especially being stuck on Bayonetta 2 with replays and halo grinding, and doing the same for the first game. I should take a break during those playthroughs and play some SSB and MK8. Nintendo Land and Super Mario 3D World, I never played, they came with the Wii U 32 GB version as a bundle. Zelda was a free download code gift for doing a pokemon request.

    I need to buy more Wii U games, but I'm saving up for a high end gaming PC.

    [user]RustInPeace[/user] I have bought about 13 or so games through The prices are not always the best but if you know the market value you will do great. Just set price alerts for what you want to pay and when the price drops to that point you get an email and can nab it.

    Hours aside, I will say this, I play my WiiU most of all my consoles by far. My order is PC, WiiU, PS4.

    The WiiU has an exclusive library and a lot of other games I'm interested in have PC releases.

    Mostly Miiverse, occasionally one of the few Wii U games I like.
