I may not fully understand the point of the Gamepad, or perhaps I'm not be it's target audience. It seems to me that the only thing the Gamepad gives me as a benefit is that I have a map or inventory management screen in my lap, or I can play games not on my TV. Why would I ever choose to shut my dedicated home theater room off and play the same game on a micro screen? I can possibly see this for familys, but I'm a single individual, and have nobody trying to kick me off the TV so they can watch "The Bachelorette". I admit that I did like some of the features given to me by ZombieU, I thought the use of the pad was pretty decent in that, and was hoping to see more of that, but as of right now, I haven't seen anything since then make good use of the Gamepad. In Super Mario 3D World, the use of the gamepad is more annoying, and tends to just give me minor whiplash on the few stages that require it looking down, looking up, looking down, looking up. I really just want to put it away. That said, I want to emphasize that I like this system, and I really am looking forward to new stuff coming out for it.
