    Classic Controller

    Use the Classic Controller for VC games... the Wavebird/GameCube controller won't work with all VC games.

    If you're like me and are obsessive over matching hardware, the Classic Controller is for you.

    If you're going to get GameCube games, play the GameCube games with the GameCube controller. I'd pick a platinum GameCube controller.

    I wish they would release a GameCube special edition controller that has the same look (font, style) as the Wii controllers.

    Dude, get Nintendo's wavebird. It's wireless and works with MOST virtual console titles, not to mention it works with GC titles. I picked one up just for this purpose and I love it!!

    i'm just gonna buy an original wired silver controller. wires don't bother me much, so i don't think the wavebird is worth the xtra money.

    It's not like there's a list. . .we don't even have a list of what games they are releasing to the VC. As they release games, the icons on the download page will indicate the compatible controllers. I'd say that 99% of the VC games will be gamecube controller campatible.

    Go with the Wavebird since you can play both GCN and VC games with it and its wireless but if your not going to buy GCN games then just go with classic.

    You could also try buying a used wavebird controller fromeb games or some thing they sell for $15.99 (at least here they do). Compared to the classic which is $20 right? I may be wrong but that's what I did.

    Some Genesis, Turbografx-16 games. NES games you can play with your Wii Remote, and SNES games are more natural played on the Classic Controller.

    Edit: It has to be in the very first GC slot (frontwards). And it works so far :)

    I've been using wavebirds for years. By far the best wireless controllers. If you're close enough to a small tv to use a wireless controller, start saving for a reasonable sized set. You're missing half the fun. We play on a 55" with the 16x9 setting, and it's wonderful. Never leaves me wanting for more. The wavebird batterys last forever as well.
