Can't figure out how to play on gamepad only for virtual console games

So I've tried looking this up everywhere, including the Wii U manual, and I can't seem to find out how to do gamepad-only for virtual console games. I can do tv-only, and both simultaneously, but I thought there was an option to do gamepad-only. Or am I just missing something really obvious? I'm trying to play an NES-game on the VC, if that matters any.

Turn off your TV, or at least put it on another input.

Indeed, you're free to change the channel. It's supposed to be obvious, but it IS too obvious to even think about, so no fault there.

Every console has a game worth playing to me, like for example, the Xbox 360 has Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts.

Oh OK. I thought it might have been a similar setup to WWHD, where the Wii U stops on the TV entirely.

Thanks!
