Title. I know the gamecube controller is popular for smash, but I'd rather not use it because:

a) Personally not a fan of it, at least for Smash

b) Would rather get a controller that I can also use for other games instead of an adapter and controller that I'll pretty much only use with smash

c) Pretty sure the USB alternatives are more readily available and cheaper than a new gamecube controller + adapter

Thanks

Do you not like the GC controller layout? If not, get a Pro Controller. Thatll be your best alternative. Not certain how the third party ones are but you might as well put the extra $20ish for the official one. It goes on sale quite frequently, keep tabs on r/Switchdeals.

Most of the third party GC controllers are read as pro controllers and work with other games, so you can essentially use them for most games fyi.

I really like the pro controller. Super comfortable and made botw so much better. In smash though there's slightly more latency.

In this era, unless you're a Nintendo purist or live under a rock; which are the same thing really, the Pro controller matches the controllers most people are comfortable with.

How's the horipad? Seems like it'll get the job done for less than the pro controller (prefer wired over wireless anyway).
