I just want to know if all Wii games are backwards compatible with Wii U or only a select few.

Thanks in advance

I don't see why any Wii games wouldn't work on the Wii U. It will play everything. To play the games, just make sure you've the right accessories. Should you not have a sensor bar on hand for some reason, the Gamepad itself is a suitable alternative.

Pretty sure there was something on WiiWare, but with the Wii digital store shutdown a month ago, that isn't anything to worry about. The only possible issue is games that used the Gamecube controller ports, not possible with Wii U. All games can still be played without them, but you won't have that as a control option.
I'm not lazy, I just don't care
