    Smo, I hope to get OOT on VC as soon as I get my Wii working again, but I haven't got any controllers that work with it. My bro took all of his GC controllers with him to university so I can't nick those, but he's played a ton of VC games and apparently the gamecube controller works better for N64 than the classic controller. And with the Wiimote and such out now, the GC price has probbably dropped, I'm asssuming. Smo, considering that my Wiimote can play any SNES and NES games I might buy on impulse, is it a better idea to get a cheap-as-free GameCube controller?

    By the Classic Controller... No question you need it.. Some games are almost impossible to play on the Gamecube controller.

    I learned this the hard way. The button setup is retarded.

    Is it easy to play N64 games on the classic controller?

    Ah I think I'm going to have to go for gamecube controllers... They play gamecube games and are dirt cheap so I can still play full on multiplayer MarioKart and potentially Goldeneye

    Yeah, I also think CC is better, though I'm still used to having A below B, as in the 64 controller, so I sometimes press Y when I want to slice enemies on zelda =P
