Welcome to WiiChat.
Some games in the VC, mainly n64 can be used with the Gamecube controller.
And I suggest giving it a chance, as they are some great games on there and there are more to come for sure.
Zelda is great and I will be getting Galaxy when it comes out.
See ya round, and feel free to send me a pm if you have more questions.
Or perhaps make a thread on it.
