Granted I have had my Wii U since 2013 but in an overall perspective it hasn't done much of a progress at all because in terms of being a quality gaming console it isn't, nor does it have a whole lot to play and then there's the GamePad which should have never been forced upon the Wii U - which is a home console after all. The online services feel very primitive and limited lacking features such as voice chat then you have the menus such as System Settings that take up to 30secs to load plus Miiverse to open lasts for about the same as System Settings. Then there's the Wii U Pro Controller which is despised by Nintendo as Nintendo itself doesn't support the controller on its games sadly, but I love to use it as it's light-weight, 80hrs of use and very comfortable. I'll say that I have played over 50 Wii U games but just don't do it, if you'd ever get one just get Nintendo games and call it a day. Heck, even Nintendo exclusives on the Wii U aren't all that good, i.e, Hyrule Warriors, Nintendoland, Game & Wario, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Mario Party 10, ZombiU, Wii Party U, New Super Luigi U, New Super Mario Bros. U and Sonic Boom. I think this is all of them and wow, it's 10 in total. Nintendo's losing their own sense of "Seal of Quality" but they have been on a quality decline ever since the N64 so no surprise there.
