    Default Got a Wii U and a gift card...what game or accessory should we get?

    OKAY, SO....
    Me and my sis got a Wii U from the folks this Christmas. :'D

    Already got some games, the two Mario games that came with it and my sister bought Earthbound with her own money.
    We got a 25 dollar Walmart gift card with the system, any suggestions?

    The idea is either another single player rpg OR another controller so that we can both tackle the Mario games.
    Ideally we'll get another controller at some point no matter what, just not sure how soon we should get it compared to adding more games to the library.
    This is the first new console we've gotten in a LONG time, as I've just been playing new games on the PC and she plays more retro games when she wants to.

    What sounds like a better deal for now?
    Extra controller or another game?
    Also, I know it's backwards compatible with the Wii, but when I looked up Wii games they sometimes say they require the nunchuck thingy, which is annoying at this time because we only have the control that came with the Wii U.
    So we might need another controller before another game anyways. >.>

    Be careful if you are going to get Monster Hunter: Tri is the Wii Version, 3 Ultimate is for the Wii U. They are not compatible with each other but are the same game. 3 Ultimate has new stuff in it though and is compatible with the 3DS version of the game (should you get one down the line).

    Also, Wii accessories DO work with the Wii U so if you do plan on getting Wii Games down the line, get a Wii Classic Pro Controller along with a Wii Mote and you'll be good for most games. You'll need a second Wii Mote + classic pro or other attachments if you want to do multiplayer for Wii games with your sis, otherwise, one of you can use the Wii U gamepad and the other use the Classic Pro Controller for Wii U games.

    Wii U controllers will NOT work with Wii Games or when you are in Wii Mode on your Wii U console, but your Wii U game pad will stream Wii games on it's screen so you can play wii games without a TV.
    Be aware of that.

    Edit*

    I forgot to list some games but I can do that when I get back from the hospital

    Also to be doubly smacked in the face, MH:T (First Wii) has had it's servers taken down so it'd be a sadder day since no chance at multiplayer.

    Oh it did? That kinda sucks since online is like the main focus in that one. Yeah def get MH3U lol.

    Other games I'd suggest looking into:

    Wii U

    Legend of Zelda Windwaker HD
    Pikmin 3
    The Wonderful 101

    Not many yet, a lot of us are still waiting on Bayonetta 2, X, SMTxFire Emblem and Smash Bros 4.

    Wii

    Rune Factory Frontier/Tides of Destiny
    Super Smash Bros Brawl
    Phantom Brave
    Okami (best with Wii Mote/Nunchuck)
    Sin and Punishment 2 (best with Wii Mote/Nunchuck, Classic Pro is decent)
    Xenoblade
    Pandora's Tower
    The Last Story
    Muramasa: The Demon Blade
    Fragile Dreams
    Fire Emblem: Raidant Dawn
    Final Fantasy Fables; Chocobo's Dungeon
    Arc Rise Fantasia
    Opoona
    Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
    Spectrobes: Origins
