Then it is just a case of "being used to it". The thing is, I played Smash Bros 64 since launch but didn't get Melee (and a GameCube) until a year later, and therefore had 3 years of prior experience using an N64 controller for Smash Bros. Perhaps this resulted in myself not being so married to the GCN pad for anything Smash Bros related? Ah, well I find the Dpad on the GCN pad very lacking (try playing the Japanese "Nintendo Puzzle Collection" with it) so even the original CC is a great improvement with it's Dpad, not to mention I never owned a SNES so I need a quality Dpad for my SNES VC games. I never had a rumble pack on the N64, and I got a Wavebird when I got my GameCube, so I never got attached to rumble. Heck I even turn off rumble on my wiimotes to conserve battery life.
