It's Pikmin. What's not to like? Relaxing, colorful, charming, fun, funny, and strategic.
You control an army of 100 Pikmin who help you out. It's incredibly fun, good looking despite its age, and enough ways to challenge you that it can be fun for anyone. Chibi robo 2? Please nintendo? Also, if you want to buy once you've rented you're out of luck. These are getting harder and harder to find on places like eBay and amazon. Expect $30+ for an average used copy.
Now I am one to not judge Pikmin. These games are amazing and with Pikmin 3 being my favorite game on the Wii U , but it is not my favorite in the series. In Pikmin 2 Olimar has to go back to the Pikmin Planet with his new colleage Louie who is pretty funny with his Piklopedia (Mamuta Inedible tastes like chicken) to pay of a debt of OVER 10,000 Pokos. While collecting treasure I found the new types of pikmin being really fun. Purple Pikmin or in my case Big Berthas are practically the best type ever released. Purple Pikmin are 3X more powerful than the average pikmin , when thrown can do a divebomb attack and can stun enimies, and can lift 10X the normal pikmin. White Pikmin are imunned to poison, can dig up buried treasures, run faster than the normal pikmin, and when eaten drastically hurt the enemy. Once you have paid off the debt of 10,000 Pokos Olimar forgets Louie on the planet and must go back to save him and PLOT TWIST the President replaces Louie in search of Louie and more treasure. Pikmin 2 is my favorite in the series and try it for yourself. Go get it now seriously

I liked the Gamecube version and the 1st Pikmin. But the new control scheme is hardddddd. I spend an an hour trying to swarm and then a volitile dweevil comes over and blows up half my squad. Wut's up nintendo.
