    so what's needed to play cube games?

    can i use the wii classic controller (regular style) or do i need a gamecube one?

    I ask because i never had a gamecube and want to buy a bunch of games! recommendations would be appreciated too!

    thanks guys

    You need a gamecube controller. Get Super Smash Bros Melee (SSBM) Metroid Prime and Resident Evil 4 (RE4)

    I'm looking on eBay and there's a crap load of unbranded (non-Nintendo) Gamecube controllers. Does anyone know if these will work a Wii too?

    Thanks

    3rd party controllers *should* still work, seeing as they are still technically a gamecube controller.. the only reason im saying should is because i dont want you buying one, and then coming back and being like PIRATE YOU JERK IT DOESNT WORK..

    but to me i wholeheartedly do believe it would work

    They should. You may wanna go down to your local walmart and check prices on their non-namebrand controllers b/c with shipping you may end up paying the same price or more. At least at walmart you can actually touch them before you buy. . .which for a 3rd party controller, I wouldn't want to buy it before picking it up at least once to make sure the feel to the controller is ok.

    Also, you'll need a gamecube memory card if you plan to do game saves for the gamecube games.

    I'm in the same situation as you, but I was planning on buying Windwaker and Super Mario Sunshine, just because I missed out on those. SSBM would be fun, but would it be stupid to get if you're only getting one GC controller?
