For those who prefer to play classic games with a standard controller, Nintendo has just the thing. This “classic controller” resembles the SNES pad, but with added thumbsticks. Here’s the bottom line:

My final test was Donkey Kong. This was the only game where the controller fell short, not because of some issue with the controller really, but simply because old arcade games just need to be played with a big joystick to really capture the essence of the game. Despite this one shortcoming, the Classic Controller is a must buy. If you have a Wii and plan to play even one Virtual Console game you’d be crazy not to spend $20 for this controller, it really makes the experience
