I think it is on topic, singing the praises of a controller is the same as singing for the console. I mean, I grew up in the days of controllers starting to get round, and my first console they were rectangle. They sucked! And D-pads are not something I miss. God I love analogue sticks, and vibrating controllers. Look at the N64 controller, you need three hands for it! And the vibration attachmebt weight a frigging ton. Sure the games never required you to use all three handles, but why have that many to start with? IT DOESNT FIT IN HUMAN HANDS.

I really can't get over how awesome the xbox controller is, though the rb and lb buttons break easily, and begin to feel unresponsive and sluggish. But then, my Mega Drive controllers feel like that all the time, and always did. So dull, so unrefined. Progress is amazing. Does anyone know how the xbox one controller compares?

When I was younger, I thought how stupid the 360 controllers were, with their oddly placed analog sticks.
Now though. Imo, they are definitely the best controller.

I don't get why nobody likes the n64 controller. Everybody who doesn't like it keeps on saying that it's oddly shaped and uncomfortable, but the moment you put your hands on it every finger falls into place and everything else is easy to reach. My only real complain is that its wire is way too short.

Because it's tiring on your hands, heavy and clunky, poorly balanced and has three handles. It's shockingly bad- I'm amazed the dreamcast was so similiar, it was just abgood design. Sure you can hold it, but it doesn't fit to your hands. At the time, PlayStation controllers were revolutionary for being so form fitting. Now they're outdated, but Sony aren't very inclined to update their designs.

The original Xbox Controller was atrocious. It was way too big and chunky.

I mean, how the hell could my 8-year-old fingers manage something like that;

I think I might be biased since I've played with them since I was 3 years old, but I find the n64 very comfortable and light, and I don't know how you might hold it, but it fits in my hand just right. I don't have an opinion about the play station because I've only held one of those twice in my life and I can't remember the feeling, but I can compare it to a 360 controller since all my friends have one of those and I can say that I find both equally comfortable.

Then you, proto, must be a wizard because I can't stand those controllers. I love the n64 though, it's just the controllers I can't stand.

Also, cookie for unintentional rhyming post. Love it.

Edit: thinking about it, Nintendo haven't made a decent controller besides the gamecube (I love that the console has a handle, like it's portable. It plugs in to a TV! It's not portable. But still, I love the handle) and arguably the SNES. My opinion, of course. But the wiiu? Sure it has a damn screen in there. Hell even an RFID reader. But srsly, it's massive and heavy, I don't want to hold that for hours at a time. Gotta say the wiimote (with motion plus at any rate) works well, but it's different and doesn't really count, and it still throws me off. Sega did the same thing- only bad controllers. Is it so hard to make a good one?

And in regards to the xbox controller, I think they looked at the dreamcast and said 'yeah, bigger is better'. God thr dreamcast controllers SUCKED. So disappoint in that console. Why Sega, WHY!? ;_;

Oh my gosh, you're right. I rhymed :3

Anyway, it's a good thing that Nintendo realizes how much their GameCube controller is liked, because they're giving the wii U support for it too (Right now the only confirmed game that uses it is Smash, but I'm sure there will be others), but the question is why didn't they made the wii U like that since the beginning?

Also, if there was a thing that screamed uncomfortable, it would be the virtual boy controller. I swear that thing looks weird from every angle.

I somehow never could like, or get used to Nintendo controllers. The only one I probably could with enough use is the Gamecube one along with their handhelds.

As for the Xbox 360 controller, it's great for people with big hands, but rather annoying for people with smaller hands. However it probably would be less of an issue if they had controllers of various sizes but that probably hasn't been done due to production costs.

But the original xbox controller(the first of them) most people could agree was horrible.

Yeah, Nintendo has not been the best at that. GameCube, great, in fact, almost the same as the Xbox, but everything else? Overly big, oddly shaped, always something was uncomfortable.

There's so many arguments for every system out there that it's all subjective. With that in mind, I've had more plain simple fun with PlayStation (X, 1, 2, and 4) than any of the others, so that's my vote.

I like my Xbox One. All my mates have it so yeah, and I've also grown up with my 360 too. But in terms of gaming, it's gotta be PC, the graphics and frame rates are superior tbh. I play both though, I have different games on each platform.
