    I just bought a Wii.
    I don't have a gamecube, but have some gamecube games.
    Do I need a game cube controller to play gamecube games on wii?

    Yes, sadly you do. They might be somewhat hard to find nowadays too. But, you should be able to get one at a gamestop I imagine. Probably used, but cheap.


    EDIT: Good team work you two! We dominated that!

    be careful about buying 3rd party controllers...some of them don't work. I have a MadKatz one and it does work...

    some 3rd party ones are fine like the gamestop chamellion ones. i bought one of those about a year ago and it still works fine and is comfortable too but you'd be best off spending about 5 more dollars and getting a used official one IMO

    Be sure to read your Wii manual. This question as well as others you may have will be answered in there and you don't have to wait for a response.

    Does the "Classic controller" function with GC games?
    You would think it would, its practicly a GC controller.

    OFF-Topic
    Who else things that playing a 64VC game with a GC controller feel weird, mainly the joystick lol, it is for me

    You will need a GC controller as well as a GC memory card to play and store your GC game data. Be careful though, as some third party controllers do not seem to be compatible.

    ya, you do need a gamecube controller. They are really inexpensive though now. Just DO NOT EVER get controller thats NOT made by Nintendo. Also, I recommend getting a wireless controller. They're a little bit more but its really cool to keep everything wireless :)

    Wavebirds were sweet. Too bad they came out so late in the Gamecube's lifetime.

    My Gamecube games are still getting played, hard. But, yeah...it's a shame they weren't really introduced until the Gamecube's "death".

    Wireless run on batteries dont they? imo it would such having to keep buying batteries for your controller. I just got a MadKatz controller and bought an extension on Amazon for like $2

    I got this controller for $20.00 new. It is wireless and feels almost like an official Nintendo controller. At first the buttons seemed stiff but after a 2 hour Phantasy Star Online session it felt almost as good as a Nintendo pad.

    It takes 3 AAAs. I use rechargeables.

    It's actually white and has a blue glow like the Wii DVD slot. For some reason the model in the picture is black like the old gamecube model. The paint is white like the Wii, but the "craked" design lights up blue. This is nice because you can always tell if the controller is on so you don't waste your batteries.

    The box said Wii iglow gamecube controller

    I found it at Hastings(books, movies, games)

    Cons...
    -not as good as official Nintendo controllers
    -like the wavebird, no rumble
