Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Why is using a Gamecube controller on Smash such a big deal?

I mean jeez, it's hottest trending topic on twitter and on the front page of reddit. New game announcements don't even get this much attention. Am I missing something here? It's just a controller.

It isn't just any controller, it is the gamecube controller. The controller everyone knows smash bros for, the controller everyone has been playing smash bros with for over 10 years.

Nintendo should just replace the Gamepad with the GCN controller if people love it that much.

Best controller ever invented.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Do you even Tendo?
