why does ninty force gamepad use on us?

Having it boot up with the system is the worst feature of all! Let me start with a wii remote or pro controller if I choose, dont force me to burn the gamepads horrible battery, especially if im not going to use it.

Speaking of wii remotes and pro controllers whats with not being able to use them for single player in certain games that dont even require the gamepad in multiplayer?

Ive also had trouble assigning which player uses the pro controller and which uses the pad, there seems to be a priority issue.

On the wii I never had trouble on games such as kart or smash using a mixture of cube, classic, and wiimote with or without chuk, yet the gamepad is such a monopolizer it just mucks the process.

No online chat without using the gamepad? Seriously no audio port on the $50 controllers?

Cant shop the eshop without the gamepad?

pikmin 3, while better controlled with a wii remote and nun Chuck for precision, still requires the gamepad to run and wont let you access the map with the remote and chuk, you have to alternate between using the gamepad and remote/chuk

The design is already questionable with poor battery, no universal option to use the gamepad or your tv as your main display (every game handles this differently), no multi touch, etc. But forcing it to run at all times on a machine that has options is frustrating. The other day my kid turned on the wii by mistake when he pushed the eject button, later than night I went to play and my gamepad was dead from turning itself on.

Add some options already nintendo, its the easiest thing you could do to quit sucking so much.

The pad is the reason I'll never buy a Wii-U. I MIGHT actually buy one near the end of its life the same way I picked up a Wii, but they'd have to release a firmware update making the system 100% functional with a pro-controller. Otherwise no buy.

I got the thing at launch and this has been one of my major complaints. Along with not being able to use the gamepad or pro controller as a classic controller in Wii Mode. Most my other complaints have at least been addressed though.

Too bad it's not forced. You have OTHER options, this isn't like the Wii that generally gave you one option.

There is a limit. You can only ignore so much.

You either can't read or ignored everything aside from the topic title.
