Thread: What's your favorite controller(s)... EVER ?

  1. #11
    I actually love the Dreamcast for its fighters, and find that controller really conducive to an arcade like experience, so it's probably the controller I like the most for arcade games and fighters. (also, the VMU easily makes it one of the coolest and functional extras added to a controller).

    For general use for most all other games though, it has to be the X360 controller (wired for me). It just fits so perfectly in my hands and I find it perfect for just about everything except fighters.

    The dual shock Playstation controller (of just about any variety) will always hold a special place in my heart though. Just like the X360 controller, it just feels like it "fits" my hands - as soon as most people have it in their hands they 9/10 times will hold it properly, even if they've never used a game controller before.

    Generally speaking, I've observed over time that the only people who hate the DC controller are those who love the PlayStation controller above all else. Nothing wrong with this. I've always just thought that it was interesting.

    Good to see I'm not alone on this, DC controller is my choice for fighters (or shmups) after an arcade stick.

    So I'm weird for liking both. XD

    Interesting though, I haven't read enough of these discussions to notice a big pattern like that.

    Saturn 3D pad for what supports it, then it's a toss up between the JP Saturn pad and the Genesis 6 button wireless pad. The NES controller is pretty nice too once you get the after market power grips on it.

    The DualShock family of controllers are fine since I've been using them forever, but personally I think the 360 pad is a much better refinement of it.

    I find the stick layout to be considerably improved on the 360 controller.

    I like both as well. I'm just not obsessed with the PlayStation design. I think that's the key.

    The power grips make the original NES controller even better than those IMHO, they look a bit weird but work great.

    Yeah, I'm glad MS worked on making it that much better when they went from the OG Xbox to the 360. Plus, AAs make it easy to swap out when it's running low, but that controller has really good battery life.

    The 360 Controller does have great battery life. If I just leave batteries in my Wiimote they go dead without using it.
