    I'm well confused about what controllers work with which games, can someone confirm which games (gamecube, Virtual Console) use which controllers.

    Wiimote =

    Gamecube Controller =

    Classic Controler. =

    ie, will a classic controller work with GC games? or will GC controller work with VC games?

    or do i need to buy all 3 different controllers to play the available games.

    Look at the silhouettes of the controllers at the shop screen.

    Some games (mostly NES and PC Engine games) can be played with the Wiimote sideways, most VC games work with a GC controller, all VC games work with the classic controller, and can only use GC controllers for GC games.

    It's also a good idea to get a GC memory card if you wanna play GC games as saves cannot be saved to the Wii's on-board memory or SD card.

    Are you sure only GC games use the GC controller? as I am sure the Megadrive games can use it.

    Nunchuk = Certain Wii games.

    Wiimote = Wii games and certain VC games.

    Gamecube Controller = Gamecube games and certain VC games.

    Classic Controler. = VC games only.

    When you download VC games they will tell you which controllers they work with.
