    So yeah ive been wondering...is there any real reason for me to get a Classic Controller? I mean the way i look at it is i have yet to find a game that needed it to be played...Even on VC i could either use the Wiimote or the Gamecube controller (which i have both) so i dont see a reason to get it..should i or is it a waste of money?

    Classic controller would be a wise investment, you can't just use a Gamecube controller. Gamecube controller works for n64 games, but to play the rest of them like the Super Nintendo and Sega games you will need the classic controller, so your better off buying one and using it for all games really.

    But if you plan on only downloading n64 games, your Gamecube controller works fine.

    Also note, the Wiimote does not work with any VC games.
    Remember that.

    Fair enough, but your better off getting the Classic controller still as there are more than just 4 or 5 VC games out there, there is tons. Classic controller would be a good purchase, and easier knowing full well you can use it on the games rather than try and see which games work with the Wiimote right?

    really? but then again why make the classic controller if you can use the Wiimote with any of the old VC games?

    Hey all,

    The GC controller won't adapt properly to Super Nintendo games? I would think it would , since it has all of the same buttons - just layed out a bit different.

    Ok, case-in-point, is there any VC game that will NOT work at all with the GC controller that would need the classic controller?

    Thanks,
    Matt!

    The only games the GC and Wiimote do not work with are Turbographics16.

    unless you want to play these games you don't really need one.

    well there are games that use only the classic controller. i like it because you can use it on any VC game and i personaly find it easier to use than other controllers.

    There are like 5 or possibly more games that do not work with the GC controller Super Mario World being one of them

    And Classic Controller is semi-wireless being tethered to the wii-mote, however the GC controller is not, unless of course you've got a Wavebird like myself (i also have a classic controller mind you)

    Plus when Brawl Comes around you'll have all controller combinations

    The Gamecube controller is unattractive to me, I know it's a bad reason but it's true, and also I sold my Gamecube and PS2 with everything that goes with it for a 360 about a year ago so I'm not about to buy a crappy Gamecube controller when the Classic Controller looks good and feels better, I also have $$$ to burn from Christmas and it's really not that much more, the only thing that bothers me is the wire, is it wireless? I don't know, but anyway Brawl has been said to work better with the Classic Controller so another good reason, I;m going to buy one next weekend.
