The Wii U doesn't have that small a catalogue, to be honest. It's over 400 games now, and there's still a lot coming to the eShop even if the boxed releases have slowed to a trickle. That's a fair bit better than the N64 ever got. In terms of getting my Nintendo fix though, I'd think the 3DS has outshone the Wii U. Both have got an excellent Mario Kart, some Mario platformers, Zelda re-makes, Hyrule Warriors, Donkey Kong Country, Xenoblade, Star Fox, etc.

However the 3DS alone so far has Fire Emblem, Codename STEAM, Paper Mario, the Mario and Luigi games, Luigi's Mansion, a proper Animal Crossing, Kid Icarus, a couple of original Zeldas, and all the Pokemon games; that's aside from it still getting decent third party games. The Wii U does have some great games like Splatoon, Captain Toad, Super Mario Maker and Pikmin 3, but there just aren't nearly as many of them.

I've currently got Xbox one so I voted for it for that reason. I haven't got a PS4 or any of the others so can't comment...
