    buy an original gc controller, from my personal opinion, it's ideal for either playing on emulators, native gc games(nintendont) or staight up wii games(mario kart and smash)

    I would prefer the Gamecube Controller. Despite it being a little old. It has a great grip, and they are cheap on the market. I don't know how long the actual wires are that connect to the Wii, but in the case you may want longer ones you may want to use a Wii Classic Controller. However I would highly recommend the GameCube Controller if you use any Wii Emulators.

    Wii U MAY be worth it. But I would highly recommend not using it so you have best Compatibillity with other Wii shop games.

    You could go with a HORI Battle Pad, which has the form of a GC controller but acts as a classic controller. Its only issue is not having analog triggers but other than that it fulfills everything you want.

    The NES30 Pro and FC30 Pro are very good for retro games and new games, you can connect it in Wiimote, Wiimote+Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller mode, completely wireless and also use it with PC, Android, iOS and others. I got one myself a month or so ago and I really like it.

    The only thing you can't do with them is use Wiimote motion controls or the IR sensor. But you can use them in any Wii game that doesn't need motion controls or Nunchuck. With Nintendont you can use them in GC games too.

    If you use Nintendont then the HORI battle pad will work with Gamecube games as well. It will also work with any emulator that supports the classic controller which is almost all of them.

    You have to realize that the GameCube Controller, NES, and Hori Battle Pad. Are pretty much the same thing just with more/less buttons, and different cosmetic looks/prices. (Grip, and controller models included...)

    When I had suggested the controller I did it becuase of the price, and grip/feel of it. ($4 for a GC Controller is not a lot...) and becuase games like Mario Kart are comfortable to play on with this (in my opinion.) Not only that but you can get skins for the controller. (Note they only go on the top of GC Controller/back.)
    https://www.decalgirl.com/skins/gamecube-skins (Note these come with the GameCube System Skin as well... Sorry for it being a little over priced.)

    Same with NES Controller pretty much.



    ALLso ur gwamwar is pwetty intwestin. I dount seee y u are being rood to us... The jest of it is pretty messed up.

    Edit: I realized you were from Germany not America... Sorry (Faceplam.) Just been in a mini-argument. So I'm getting a little iffy on English, and such.

    Sorry what I said,

    They're not licensed by Nintendo, and neither is the HORI pad. It works the exact same way as the HORI pad though the HORI pad is generally considered to be higher quality. The PDP controller is still a good choice.
