    Do I need to use a Gamecube controller for Gamecube games? (eg. backups)...or can I use the Wii Classic Controller or Wii Remote?

    AFAIK you'll have to use the GCN controller (correct me if I'm wrong).

    Takeshi is right. GCN controller for GCN games.

    It would be helpful to some if you could use the Classic Controller, but for some reason you can't.

    Personally, I find the Classic Controller to be surprisingly uncomfortable. But you are right, it would be nice if we could use it. Perhaps an accessory manufacturer could whip up a conversion device or something down the road to plug it into a GC slot?

    I find the Classic Controller uncomfortable as well. I bought Zelda OOT the other day and tried playing with it and couldn't stand it. I switched to a GC controller and found it a lot more comfortable.

    The main problem I have with it is the position of the d-pad and left analog stick. The stick is in an awkward place to be using it as your main directional device on N64 and GC games.

    In my case, I was trying to play Super Mario 64. No. Just no. Gamecube controller rocks out right for that game. : D

    I still haven't tried it with anything older yet as I only bought that and Bomberman '93. Probably won't be buying much more than that. Besides Gunstar Heroes later on and maybe Paper Mario when it hits.
