    Um...tragic? No.
    They're not very hard to find...

    And I personally do not like the classic controller, it's doesn't feel good to grip and I suggest using the WaveBird GameCube controller, as you don't have a Wiimote dangling from the bottom of it [​IMG]

    i know they're not hard to find,

    hence the tragedy when i found that our whole two facings where empty :/

    i heard that the gamecube controller is horrible to use with snes games too :/

    Its horrible for N64 games too, I really don't like it but its better than using a Wiimote. GC controller or Wavebird are much better.

    I'm unsure which to get (the wavebird or classic - caught in the middle. But will the Wii allow me to use the Classic Controller or a gamecube controller for any Wii games. For example, if I didn't want to swing the wiimote around for Prince of Persoa, could I just press B or C or whatever? Are there games out there that let you do this?

    wavebird is good for Mario Kart 64 and terrible for everything else. Classic controller is the way to go.

    I recommend picking up Donkey Kong Country 1&2 with a Classic Controller

    Thanks Opium. Have you been able to use your classic controller with any Wii titles (non Virtual console titles)?

    I find the CC with one of those grips you can find at deal extreme to be comfortable enough for most games.

    I think you can use the Classic Controller with Dragonball Z Budokai tenkaichi 2...
    But i don't know for sure.
    Can anyone confirm this?

    I've been playing with Mortal Kombat Armageddon and DBZ Teniachi 2 using the classic controller.

    That's how I played my second run through RE4 Wii Edition. Now I've beaten it on every possible controller: GC, PS2, Wiimote+Nunchuk, CC, and mouse and keyboard.
