    Wii Classic Controller.... how important?

    Is this controller needed or is it just an option rather than using the wii mote? Can all the games function without the classic? I just want to know what I'm getting into before I buy anymore games.

    The classic controller is mainly just for VC games. Only a few Wii games use it and most that do use it can also use the Wiimote.

    yeah, what he said..

    NES control pads only had the 2 right hand buttons (wii is fine there)

    MegaDrive had 3 (wii uses buttons 1, 2 and a, so it works there..)

    for SNES games (having the 4 right hand buttons) you will want/need a GC controller or classic..

    and with GC games, obviously you can use a GC controller, i think the classic will work with these aswell..

    The classic controller DOES NOT work for GC games.

    Not very important. Just use GC controllers for VC games.

    You really need a Classic Controller for SNES games, try one such as Super Mario World or the Contra game and you will quickly see why; the button layout of the Gamecube controller is just all wrong.

    So true. I was never a fan of the GC controller because of the button layout. I wish the CC could work with gc games since it is the perfect controller (next to the Wiimote)
