Yes, especially if they mirrored the screen on the GamePad and had the GamePad and Pro Controllers connect as Classic Controllers. I'm not sure what games I would get if they did this because I still have a collection of thirty something games but I think it would be good. Not willing to rebuy anything I already have unless it's a remake with significant improvements. Twilight Princess HD for <$50AU with improved textures and GamePad support being the obvious example.

However if they released something like Excitebots for something like $20-30AU I'd grab a copy. It was never released outside of NA and Japan.

None I have all the wii games I want via a game disk, and this idea is dumb because downloadable Wii ganes should be downloadable on teh Wii.

I am the one and onlyl Musharna.

@Musharna
The Wii came with 512MB of storage and trivial expansion options. Which seemed fairly reasonable, in Australia at least, back when the average household internet connection was 256k rather than ~8Mbps and the average monthly usage was probably something closer to ~2GB rather than the current 30GB. Even small Wii games of around 1.5GB would take the majority of an average person's usage and take a good twelve hours or so to download. Then what, you'd spend an extra $180AU ontop of the $380AU you spent on the Wii for an 80GB external HDD?

This was back when Youtube barely exists and runs at 240p, Facebook had just started to not require an invite and a high end phone had a built in keyboard but no touch screen. If you were a techie you would laugh at someone who had a laptop without an optical drive, a laptop with a screen smaller than 13" or a tablet computer. I was at University at the time and the computers still had floppy drives which had really only just become an oddity because by then you could get a 256MB thumbdrive for $30. For some perspective.

It would be a waste of effort to update its firmware now to allow HDD expansion. That time has come and gone. It would make sense to do it on the Wii U which is already capable of running full retail Wii U games which are in general MUCH bigger than Wii games. What they could do is release a download only version of the Wii to a limited market (how many tech savvy enough to download still want a regular Wii?) OR they could open the Wii library up on the Wii U. Possibly in preparation for a Wii U hardware revision that removes Wii backwards compatibility.

If the Wii games allowed for off TV play using the gamepad, I would consider rebuying a handful of titles starting with Xenoblade Chronicles.

How would the Wii-remote controls work with Off TV Play?

Good question for Nintendo.

No.
I have every Wii game I want and if I wanted to purchase them again I'd get a physical copy instead of tying the games to my console.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

Some, especially games that are hard to find or never got a retail release over here. Like Captain Rainbow.

Looking forward to: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Probably not. I own all the Wii games I want on disc already.

No, the Wii emulator on the Wii U is garbage.

Believe it or not the GamePad has a sensorbar built into it.

Unless they include hard to find, and/or otherwise expensive games, in my case Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn and Xenoblade, then no.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

The Wii "emulator" in the Wii U is literally a physical Wii inside the Wii U. Right down to the 512MB of flash. So it's hard to understand why someone would describe it as garbage
