My dad complains how my tv does not show the full video game screen size and says I should get a TV that supports HDMI or something.

On a side note of freezes, my Wii U froze on day 1 when I went to load the Mii Maker/Mii Channel. It froze on the loading screen but it kept on loading for about half an hour, instead of stopping the animation of the circle looping. lol

Anyway, it may freeze often but that's not a big deal. The big deal is how I must get a new TV to enjoy the high quality.

I'm guessing your dad isn't familiar with something called the "remote" and "aspect ratio" button.

Also, Wii U has really long loading times whenever it loses cache. If you use different apps in succession, this is much more likely to happen.

There are some people on this board who swore that theyd stay with using sdtv for the entire duration of their wii u ownership.

they secretly bought hdtvs recently.

This LOL is for those guys. *cheers*

Good thing the Wii U is still compatible with the SDTV CRT, using the Wii's adapter. Thanks Nintendo, you saved me from having to buy a new TV for yet another generation.

Also, those LCD/LED/Plasma HD TV's don't even support lightgun games....

So NEW tv's cannot even support technology from the '80s, HD TV is garbage

That doesn't bother you? That something you just invested in freezes constantly? If it's freezing up you obviously can't use it to game/anything else. That sure would bother me.
