    Just wondering:
    Why N64 VC games are not in full screen in Wii U and why they are when launched from vWii wads?

    I'm pretty sure my Majora's Mask virtual console runs at 4.3 on Vwii instead of full screen.

    Because 4:3 streched to 16:9 looks like ass... And not a good looking one...

    Unless you crop the image instead to preserve the original dimensions...

    But of course that croping the image will feel zoomed and sometimes will make you miss things that you were supposed to be able to see and screw you over because of that...

    That's why 4:3 will always be prefered over a stretched fullscreen image.

    The first image looks like ass, whether cropped or stretched.
