    Wow. Maybe I'm the only person that thought the N64 controller was an abomination? I honestly thought it was the worst controller I've ever used...still to this day can't think of any I'd rather use less...maybe, MAYBE, the Atari 5200 but that would be it...

    The N64 one was made for N64 games (duh) but also the N64 pad had good games built round it


    But on the worse controller thing

    [​IMG]

    Oh Hai!
    There are four buttons along the sides of the pad that are the main buttons and are hard to press and that thing is the pad (its looser than a hoes hole)

    I think that gamecube had the best controller. It perfectly fit my hand , and was great for super smash brothers

    Damn so is that why It wouldn't work with my Atari???

    Seriously the N64 controller was a total piece of ****. I never even owned 10 games for that console, based off the fact that the controller sucked so bad, I couldn't stand it. The Intellivision controller was better.

    Yay, let's all use our non working atari 5200 controllers because they are better than the N64 controller. The best controller ever would have to be the SNES controller. Oh yeah the intellivision and colecovision controllers were pretty bad.

    The best controller ever is the 360 controller, not sure what ur smoking... But if you are talking the best Nintendo controller ever... The NES Advantage by far. As for actual pads, the GameCube controller would take that one, hands down.

    The 360 controller is a piece of crap. Even the PS controller is better.

    I didn't have a Gamecube, but I hated the controller. It was because of the a, b, etc buttons, I think they weren't in a logic position. Maybe it's just me. As for the best, I think the ps controller must be it (if we don't take in count wii's), it even stays the same today.

    the gamecube controller had a terrible design. the xbox360 is very comfortable in the hand, the ps ones not so much. the 64 was good, except for the inability to use the analog & dpad at the same time (easily).

    Seriously guys, ur arguing on what controll is better. Don't u guys got anything better to do? I sure do and it's called LIFE! I'm jk it's called brawl, halo 3, world at war, and a little topping of gta.
    Oh and btw vice city is the best gta, there, something reasonable to talk about. Oh and btw, ps3 and 360 controllers are almost the same so why argue over it? But I can't wait till conduit comes out. I hope u can use wii speak publicly online, not just "friends". Peace

    Ok Jamiroquai I fixed you post up a bit.

    The best controller ever is dependent of the game its used for.
    You wouldn't use the Atari paddles for Street fighter would you?
    Yet there perfect for a game of Warlords

    If I may ask?
    Whens the next single out?

    A like and yet not alike
    For something to be classed as looking the same they first must at least look the same

    Controller usefulness depends quite a lot on the game played with it.

    Of course theres the exception of the truly horrifying controllers. Like the one Prinny showed us all some posts back. Cannot be bothered to look up the system it's for.

    The PS controller like the 360??? BAH!

    Switching the D pad with the left analog stick was the smartest thing Microsoft did, and Sony still isn't smart enough to figure it out. Just because the PS controllers look the same from PS1 to PS3, doesn't make them better, it makes them familiar... Also notice the 360 has triggers, and NOT two sets of bumpers? Those triggers are what makes it even greater. For driving games, they are your brakes and gas, and you have variable control, like with real pedals... the PS controller with it buttons, it's all or nothing...

    As for the other posts, yeah I agree for the most part, the controller is dependant on the game. That's why I still say the N64 were the worst ever. Try playing Mortal Kombat with that controller and you'll see why. I can't possibly imagine a single game the N64 controllers would be better on. The best use I suppose would be N64 VC games... I'll *assume* that with the GameCube cable to N64 controller that would work, even though the VC games don't list an N64 controller... I'm assuming they would appear as GameCube controllers. Again, I'd rather use the Cube controllers, especially since I have some that are wireless...

    I remember I couldn't wait to get my hands on a N64 system when they came out. My very first reaction was WTF are these controllers??? I never liked em, and the system sat and collected dust... They were the main reason I bought a Sega Saturn and a 3DO system... Somebody earlier mentioned the SNES controllers as best... I think that was my problem maybe, going from those to N64... NES to SNES was smooth. SNES to N64 was like running into a wall, they changed so much, and that 3 pronged design just didn't fit my hands or work for me.

    By using the Wii adapter cable to use a N64 controller(or Hori controller for the Wii), would this controller work for all games or just the ones that show on the back of the game case controller will work? I was wanting to use a controller for the Tiger Woods pga tour 09 game.

    I used to hold my N64 controller by gripping the middle prong with my left hand and holding the right prong with my right hand to press buttons. I know that was wrong but who cares. I was a little kid.
