Wii U Games for Family Fun

Nintendo's Wii U was one of the most clever ways to get families and friends to play video games together. One person can use the gamepad to perform special actions while up to four others can use Wii remotes to do something else. The result can be cooperative or competitive -- but no matter which, loads of laughter will ensue. While Nintendo has moved on to the Switch, the Wii U still has a lot of classic games you might enjoy playing. If you're looking for more Nintendo fun, make sure you check out our Best 3DS Games for Kids list, and when you're ready to upgrade to the Switch, check out our Best Nintendo Switch Games for Kids list.
