I wish Y would become B and B would be A. It's annoying trying to run in SML
I'm better than okay. I'm Homer Simpson.

This is exactly the same on the Wii VC. If you try to play SNES games with a GC controller, you find that the buttons have been mapped 1:1, meaning A is A, B is B, Y is Y, etc. This makes many games, especially games where you have to hold a button to run, like Super Mario World, or Donkey Kong Country, virtually unplayable, unless you claw up your hand.

I used to think it was just a scam by Nintendo to get you to buy Classic Controllers, but seeing that they have the same problem with the 3DS, it might just be stupidity/laziness/ignorance on Nintendo's part.

Nintendo are lazy. We will never see custom controls on GB games
"and when PS3 goes down you have to change your bank account and the locks on your door."
