I remember the time when I decided to grab a Wii U. I had my first job and my parents allowed me to get any game console of my choosing. Of course, after analyzing every option, and to my friends' protests, I got myself a $250 Wii U bundled with Smash and Splatoon. Lemme say that I can understand why people are frustrated with the system. I admit it has it's flaws, like its measly 32 GB of internal storage, it's measly library of games and a handful of other complaints that I'm not personally bothered with. But despite all of this, I don't think I would enjoy any other console as I had enjoy my time with the Wii U. As small as its selection of games are, I enjoyed my time with them. In fact, the release of Xenoblade Chronicles on the Virtual Console made me super glad that I got a Wii U, as that game became my personal favorite game of all time ever. I would bring my console over to my friends' and we would all spend COUNTLESS hours on Smash. For online fun, I would Skype a friend as we play Splatoon together. It's not just the fact that the console had good games, it's the memories of playing those games that count and I think that's why getting a Wii U was an excellent choice.
But sadly, that would not last forever.
With Nintendo ceasing all support for it since the Switch's release, the Wii U's just been collecting dust on my shelves, a terrible fate for any electronic. I decided to put it to good use and trade it in to Amazon so that it may find another owner that can take better care of it. I will not be getting a Switch immediately, not until all my school work is taken care of, and hopefully by then Nintendo would address their hardware issues.

As I watched everything being removed from the system, I could not help but feel sadden by how the Wii U would be remembered by many as a "flop". Considering how much time I put into the system, I would say that I still cherish the memories I had with it, and that was not a sign of failure in my eyes.
Adieu, Wii U. You may be removed from my living room, but you will always find a home in my heart.
