No, n64 controllers were my NIGHTMARES.
How about a Classic Gamecube Controller? You know.. the best controller ever made?
You mean the best controller ever made.....with the exception of the microscopic d-pad that was horrible for things like fighting games, the amount of force it takes to press and hold down the L and R buttons (especially for games where you have to a lot, like Mario Kart and Zelda), and the size and placement of the "z button". I like the GC controller just fine, especially the Wavebird. But those three things I do take issue with, precluding from, to me, being the "best controller ever". The Playstation controller model is also precluded, for the simple reason that I have never cared for the disjointed d-pad. Again, especially with fighting games, it can get rather uncomfortable, and is not AS functional as a normal d-pad, over time.
I like the N64 controller fine. In fact, I don't really have a problem with it at all. The analog stick is more vulnerable to wear and tear, so the GC stick is better. But otherwise, the N64 pad had nice button placement, the Z-trigger was perfect, and the d-pad was right size. Though ultimately, I guess I still say that the SNES had the "best controller ever", as far as size, comfort, functionality, button placement, d-pad, etc. It was flawless. Which means the Classic Controller Pro, by extension, I would suppose is also kind of "the best controller ever", if it were the MAIN controller for the system. Because unlike the first Classic Controller model, the L/R/Z buttons are in a nice place (PS-esque), and the damn CHORD is coming from the top like it's supposed to.
So yeah. If the Classic Controller Pro were the main controller for a console, and not just an extra one, it probably would get my vote for "best controller ever", so far.
