    If there's a reason I'd say I liked the WiiU overall then it was simply because of Mario Kart 8 online, which kept me coming back when I just wanted an online challenge or a good time with other players online (thank god playing online was free or else that would've made things worse for the console).

    Thanks, WiiU!

    It failed, also they need to save some money to produce Switches. That is why.

    That doesn't mean he has to stop playing MK8 online. There's plenty of people who still play

    I am aware of that, I meant the hardware itself is dead.

    Well, it's dead because it oficially has stopped being produced - and Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii U will be the last game Nintendo produces for it.

    Who says you cant play Mario kart 8? So what if the console is at its end. Only playing a console during its life cycle is lame. Look at all them noobs trying to buy snes carts again to relive their childhood.... They should have just kept it... instead of selling it for a n64 or playstation. Im still playing Goldeneye on the wii. The servers are still up for now.

    Only holding one item and a terrible Battle Mode was something that always held back Mario Kart 8 for me, although it's fun but it certainly could have been much better.

    Wii U was a misunderstood console. It's fun to play it.

    It still has the best console web browser out there. People expected too much from Wii U tbh.

    VB was notorious for that as well eye strain, but yeah, sales wise it's akin to the VB :P Glad I modded it
