Best Wii U Games For Teenagers 2015

Updated on January 16, 2015

The Top Wii Games for Teens - They'll Love These!

Nintendo Wii has a tremendous amount of great games for teenagers, including classics like Super Mario Bros, Metroid, and Zelda, as well as new Rock Band games, Just Dance, SmackDown vs.Raw, tremendous role playing games, sports games like Madden NFL, and standby hits like Mortal Kombat. If you're looking for a go-to list of the best Wii games for teenagers, this is it! Find new releases like Michael Jackson: The Experience, Guitar Hero games, and more! Scroll down to start viewing some of the best games available in 2013.

Just Dance 4

Just Dance 4

Fun top 40 hits and intense cardio workouts!

2012's Just Dance 4 is the latest release from the line of "Just Dance" games, all of which have received outstanding reviews. The theme of the game is pretty simple: keep dancing in time with the music just like as they do on the game, using the Wii remote (and JUST the Wii remote -- no balance board or mat required). This is a big step up from previous dance games, and also is an intense workout for those looking for some cardio to add to their routine. That means this isn't just a great game for teens, but also for young adults as well.

Buy Just Dance 4 on Amazon.

Note to buyers: Many people prefer to buy the individual "Just Dance" games as opposed to the "Greatest Hits," since the price is cheaper, and will give you more songs for your money. The "Greatest Hits" is a best-of package that compiles some of the songs from each game, but the total number of songs is less on the greatest hits (which costs more) than the individual Just Dance games (which feature 40 songs, and cost less).

WWE '13

WWE '13

Relive the "Attitude Era" of the WWE, new players and more

For those of you that aren't familiar with the wrestlers of today, it doesn't matter, because WWE '13 includes wrestlers from the past and present into the biggest roster of any WWE game offered yet. The biggest draw of this game is to relive storylines, like the Undertaker vs. Mankind Hell in the Cell, or the moments with DX (Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and company). Newer wrestlers are also included, like CM Punk, John Cena, and virtually anyone you can think of. The graphics keep getting better and better, and this game won't disappoint. The graphics will have your jaw on the floor, with undeniably realistic movement and an uncanny resemblance to all of the characters. THQ, the makers of this game, have really perfected not just the graphics, but have put a lot of work into the storyline mode and realism of the game. Even non-wrestling fans will really enjoy this Wii masterpiece!

You can buy WWE '13 on Amazon here.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wii - Great game for kids, teens, and adults alike!

Make no mistake about it, this Mario game isn't your average Mario game. Super Mario Galaxy 2 returns to the innovative 3D style introduced in the first "Galaxy" game, but improving character movements and playability. With brand new enemies, bosses, power-ups, and worlds to explore, as well as many returning characters, bosses, and gameplay elements, this game really has something for everyone! This isn't your average Mario game, however. The level of difficulty is much harder and more involved than typical 2D platforming Mario games, making it an ideal game for teenagers and adults. Great replayability!
