    Yeah you can
    On the top of the Wii [Based on it being vertical] theres a door there that opens where you can plug your Gamecube controllers in

    Hope that answers all your questions

    Yes, it plays them slightly faster at the loading screens. I was noticing this while playing RE4. The guy on gamespeedruns was loading about .5 seconds slower than me. I had to pause the avi video sometimes. All GC games work, you'll need a GC controller and memory card. The GC controller also works great with most VC games.

    I thought you wanted to play GC games on your Wii? And they do work so why not buy some?

    Ah ok. Well you have to remember when they made the Gamecube games they didn't have to idea of the Wii in mind, So how could they programme the GC games to work with the Wiimote....

    I get where your comming from though..... :thumbsup:

    Not only to do the GC games load faster on the Wii but some games have had slowdown issues fixed (when there are too many objects on screen)

    I've been going to some EB games shops to try and find good gamecube games, they are all pretty cheap now. A lot of the games have been sold though. I don't know if the price of memory cards and controllers has gone down.

    Consider using an adapter so you can connect a PS2 controller instead of trying to find GC controllers
