    I tried doing a search for it. Is there any reason Nintendo hates Gamecube controllers? I can understand from a business standpoint the logic behind forcing people into buying a new controller to play the better games, but this isn't Sony, its Nintendo, I want to believe they are better than that. Was there a reason given for it? Or is there some way to map the controls that I can't find? I'm speaking specifically about SMW and the Donkey Kong Countries.

    Ive had no probs
    It feels better for snes/n64 games due to layout of the buttons
    my only gripe (mmmmm grapes) is the dpad

    That actually solidifies my arguement. I could probably just rewire one of my gamecube controllers with one of my snes ones, but I shouldn't have to. The gamecube controller fits in the slot, it works for the game, best I can tell it was just intentionally set up to make playing certain games with it impossible.

    Why bother? The Classic controller is reasonably close to a SNES one as it is.

    I hardly believe they hate the gamecube controller, considering you're able to use them on most classic games on the VC. Not to mention some of the new Wii games. If they're still allowing that capability, they could'nt hate the controller that bad.

    Not that i'm all for the controller though, I feel more comfortable using the classic controller. But at least they give you that choice.
