    As Title Says what Games actually use the GamePad for example Map Screen , Inventory Screen or other Features not just for Off Screen Play.

    I guess I start with Zombiiu = Inventory and Map Comms.

    * Deus Ex Human Revolution, Map and Inventory, can´t be played without it.
    * Lego series games, such as Lego the Hobbit for example: interactive inventory.
    * Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE. Map, inventory, call and messages system. Can´t be played with off screen mode.
    * Xenoblade Chronicles X. The map and the possibility to teleport, that makes the gamepad essential.

    This one is likely to not be mentioned, because it's not an amazing game, but Need for Speed: Most Wanted has a pretty ridiculous setup where you can tune your car's specs in real time with the gamepad in the middle of a race. It's an absurd idea, and not really that useful, but I appreciate the effort to incorporate the controller in a cool way instead of just a run-of-the-mill port.

    I think it was like playing in god mode or something lol
    If I remember correctly you could even switch day/night in realtime, you could make the cops dissapear and things like that. It's great to have more options.

    PictoParty. Pictionary clone, Wii U makes it even better than the board game.
    Wonderful 101. Special moves are drawings, control a vehicle from a different pov than your party simultaneously in some areas.
    DS virtual console. Gamepad works as bottom screen.
    Those are the best usages of the gamepad I know of, all are awesome to play.

    On the other hand: Bayonetta 1 and some other games. Use the Wii U pro controller to do everything but have to keep gamepad on or the game freezes.
