Which video game consoles do you think had the best and/or worst controllers?

PS4 is basically perfect; Gamecube is far up there for best.

 

In retrospect, the NES and SNES controllers are not the most comfortable, and the fucking Wiimote when used sideways or for anything ever is infuriating and just generally a pain in the ass.

I think my favorite controller was on the Xbox 360, and my least favorite was on the Nintendo 64.

I've got to agree that the Playstation controllers have been the most comfortable to use in my experience.

Though, nearly every controller feels a bit uncomfortable because I've got pretty big hands and nothing sits quite right in them.

Everything feels kind of like a toy.

I mean, they are toys, but you know what I mean.

Yeah, I get you. You are a GIANT AMONG MEN and Nintendo is for tiny children like me.

 

I mean, I do have tiny hands.

Well, parts of me are gigantic compared to your average fella anyway. ;)

Was the Dreamcast controller any better than the Gamecube?

The Gamecube controller was right fucked, but at least it wasn't a weird clunky spaceship.

Oi! What'chu mean? The GameCube controller was comfortable and intuitive except for where they put the Z button and also the weird stage system of R and L.

That weird configuration and the skimpiness of it made for a very hard time for me.

To each their own, but for me it was jacked.

I believe you, but what made the configuration weird, specifically? I thought that was one of the more normal Nintendo controller offerings (especially compared to the 64).

It's hard to really explain.

It just felt wrong, maybe my brain just refused to accept it for some reason.

The Xbox 360 was the best controller. The Atari Jaguar was the worst. As far as Gamecube VS Dreamcast... I would say the Gamecube was better for adventure games like Beyond Good and Evil, and the Dreamcast was better for racing games like Crazy Taxi. It depends on what type of games you play.

I remember when I had a Gamecast. I was so frustrated that I couldn't play GTA 3 on it, but now I can look back at that and laugh. Now I have GTA 5 on PS4 and I hardly ever play it.

Affray, I'm just picturing you skeptically looking at a GC controller like "NO! This is UNACCEPTABLE. I SHAN'T!"

 

Konata, the 360 controller looks tight.

 

Bombeast, wtf is a Gamecast?

I wish it was that dramatic of an affair.

It was probably just me sighing and furrowing my brow for hours on end.

 

And the Gamecast is a movie reference.

Not a very good movie, but a very good reference.

Well, Googling it just gave me sportball stuff, so now I'm curious what movie.

It's from this Jamie Kennedy movie.

Which should tell you all you need to know about it's quality.

For me it's always going to be the PS3 controller. It's light, comfortable and holds a charge for a long time.
