Quick question that is impossible to search for:

I'm interested in getting a Wii U, but one thing I'm dying to know: can I play games from the Wii U virtual console on the Wii U gamepad controller?

Specifically, I'd love to play Secret of Mana on the gamepad controller but have no idea if I can--allowing me to play the game while my wife is watching something on TV.

Yes.
Uncharted is the best video game series of all time.

You can currently only play games from the Wii U eshop with the gamepad. However, you can display the console in Wii mode on the gamepad screen. You can't use the gamepad buttons, however you can use any Wii controllers normally as the gamepad camera acts as an IR sensor for the Wiimote. It's a little clumsy, but works great otherwise.

You can't play Wii and Wii's VC games on the gamepad, though. You need a Wii Classic Controller for that.
Have fun with whatever you like instead of telling people that they are having fun the wrong way.
