I havnt got one yet but apparently you need a classic controller to start some VC games and you can't start them with the GC pad. Also its supposed to be better than the GC controller for a lot of games.
i might get one.... but do we have any confirmation on the gc controllers, as everybody i have heard says that gc controllers work with all vc games... and the classic pad doesn't work with every game... so bear it in mind
if ocarina of time needs it then i'll have to get one... i was hoping to get away with just using my gc controller. so the answer to the post is yes, if you plan to play a lot of vc games, then it is worth getting one
but what games don't support the classic controller?
