  18. SNES was definitely the best controller. That's why I have one for my PC. ZSNES FTW!

  19. I must agree with the N64 and GC ones. What the fuck.. although, FPSes was pretty decent with the N64 stick.

    ReplyDelete
  20. man, the gc-controller was the best thing ever.

    ReplyDelete
  21. n64 was crazy with them 3 hand grips.... but dam it was bad as at playing Golden Eye

  22. How fucking wrong can they be? The US SNES controller didn't have the rainbow buttons..only the EU SNES and the (much more aesthetically pleasing) Super Famicom did. We got screwed. :(

  23. Never did care for either the N64 or gamecube controllers, but the N64 just sucked.

    ReplyDelete
  24. lulz, I always wondered why the N64 controller was shaped like that.

  25. My favorite was probably the Gamecube controller.
    Why did they make the NTSC SNES controller with gray buttons? I like the PAL one a lot more. That's how the original Japan controller was. Why did they change it???????
