I got my Wii U at a nice discount ($250) a while back. I decided to pick one up mainly because I'd given away my Wii but wanted to get back into Wii Fit. Well, the killer app for the system for me turned out to be Wii Sports Club tennis online multiplayer. I loved tennis on the Wii but almost never had a chance to play it with other humans. I played against the AI until my skill level went off the chart (literally) but that could only go on for so long. It only took 7 years but they finally made an online multiplayer version, and I love it. It has its problems (synchronous netcode like the original Quake before QuakeWorld, which SUCKS when you get matched up with someone in Brazil) but it's still a ton of fun. And it's easy to fire up casually, play a few rounds after work, and burn off some stress without involving shooting.

Art Academy: Sketchpad + the Miiverse is a close second for me. The Miiverse is an amazing community full of insanely talented people who love to draw and share their art. Nintendo has made it super easy to find, keep up with, and communicate with these people. And even if you never really did any drawing (like me) it really encourages you to try it out. The feel of the stylus on the Wii U gamepad is great, with just the right resistance for drawing. You won't get that feel with the ability to draw directly onto a screen on many other devices, I think.

It saddens me to see Nintendo struggle with this but if the Wii U is a flop, so be it. So was the Dreamcast, and I still got an incredible amount of enjoyment out of that.
