    Hi.

    I bought Mario Kart 8 recently and got the promotion code that allows me to choose a free Wii U game for download. I'm not sure which game to choose and was wondering if anyone have any suggestions?
    I was leaning towards either New Super Mario Bros U (since Mario games are awesome and I've heard great things about the Luigi expansion) or Sonic Lost World (simply because it has free, Zelda-themed DLC) but I'm not sure, maybe someone can get me sold on one of the other games. I already got Wind Waker.

    Thanks!

    What region are you from? Both US and EU regions have different/more titles in their promo.

    That makes it easier!
    I'd go for Mario because those games really retain their value. Anything else you want but don't choose you can pick up second hand :) that's how I'd tackle it anyway. I selected Wonderful 101 but haven't played it yet. I already own all the games I wanted from the selection and 101 was a leap of faith.

    I went with Windwaker but only b/c my WiiU was the NSMB WiiU bundle.

    Honestly I've only spent about 2 hours on Windwaker so far but I absolutely loved New Super Mario Bros WiiU. If I didn't have either game I'd probably choose it as the promo. But they are both good games.

    Thanks! I went with NSMBU in the end, looking forward to trying it out and also to get the Luigi expansion though apparently I have to wait until the middle of August before I get the dl code :/ Thought I would get it right away.

    It sure is, it's the reason I got a WiiU in the first place. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have gotten one until Zelda U comes out.

    Wow, you guys had a much bigger selection of games to choose from. I think we only had 4 or 5 to choose from. I wound up going with Wii Party U since I already had Wind Waker HD and wasn't all that interested in the others.
