I don't understand the hate. Sure, the console itself is underpowered and Miiverse is dumb, but what is so bad about the GamePad other than the 3 hour battery life?

I think the gamepad is awesome and much better than the Wiimote.

I'm not. It's my current favorite controller on the market.

Most people call it a "gimmick", saying it adds nothing to gameplay. Personally, I think that it's easy to think of new ideas, so the people who say it adds nothing are probably just not very creative. The real issue lies with whether the new gameplay is worth the cost.

I like a normal controller having to look at the tv not having to switch my focus to a gamepad. I have almost every game system besides the Wii-U. I only have like 4 games for the Wii because of gimmick motion controls.
