I have a TV JUST for gaming(and it's super nice 1080p, so there's not much reason for me not to look at it), but I end up looking at the GamePad screen mostly.

I don't have much access to the TV so the gamepad is ideal for me. I am struggling thought to find games which can be played without the TV and would love some recommendations, especially for non shoot 'em ups as I don't like those very much. I do have Super Mario for the U but that's it for the gamepad only games unfortunately.

I have an old TV, so the games look a lot better on the gamepad. My TV also doesn't have a "native mode" or whatever, so the image is cropped off on the tv. So, I use the gamepad whenever possible, and for the first time in 8 years I feel like I need to buy a new tv.

Same. So it's nice to use the screen sometimes.

There's no real reason why I should play a game entirely on the GamePad, because I have my own HD TV in my room. I only use the GamePad for something I have to do like certain Nintendo Land attractions. Otherwise, I prefer the TV for better visuals. I like the feel of the GamePad when playing NSMBU, but I look at the TV screen. The only reason why I would use a GamePad alone to play something is to try to get a handheld feeling, which is why I hope a Wii U VC happens.

About 50/50 for me. Blops2 I will always try and play on via the TV just so my old eyes can see what to shoot. Games like Mass Effect 3 and Scribblenauts I am fine to just use the Gamepad.

I try watching the tv whenever I can, because I didn't buy this to be a damn portable.

Playing ZombiU on just the gamepad makes a big challenge :)

Why would anyone use the gamepad when you have access to a tv?

Because not all 13 year olds who occasionally like to place their Wii U on their desk have a TV in their room! :O

I definitely prefer the GamePad when on the Internet Browser. Scrolling on the TV makes me motion sick. :P

I played all of AC3 on the gamepad. It took me 26 hours to beat the game, and it was all on the gamepad. I probably would use the TV but I have a 12 year old SDTV. No joke. It works with the Wii U if you have your old Wii av cables, but looks like crap. So I use the gamepad :D

How do you use it for Sonic Racing? I tried last night but I could not find a option to switch the screen to the gamepad.

You swipe down on the screen. Pretty obscure, huh?

I love playing on the screen. NSMBU, Metroid Blast, and Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed just play beautifully on that screen. It's completely legit, and I use it more than the TV screen now. :D

Games I'm getting: None

Favorite Games: Super Metroid (SNES) / Mother 2 (Super Famicom) / Pokémon LeafGreen (GBA) / RuneScape (PC)
Playing: Pokémon X / Y (3DS) / Super Mario 3D World (Wii U)

Nothing interesting happens.
