can you use the wii u's tablet controller to play wii games?

like for example super mario galaxy, would you literally have to run out and get a wii remote and nunchuk just to play it?

I wouldn't literally since my wiimote is in the living room.

But to play Wii games you have to switch the Wii U to Wii mode which for all intents and purposes turns it into a Wii. It will only use Wii peripherals in that mode.

Just like when you turn your Wii into a Gamecube. Then your Wii is DEAD. The same thing happens when you play Wii games on your Wii U. The Wii U is DEAD while playing Wii games.

They should of atleast made the tablet register as a classic controller or even better a gamecube controller.

*have

And even if they did, you'd just complain about it "not feeling right"

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

Except the majority of Wii games aren't compatible withe the Classic or Gamecube controller.
