    Ive got to agree with hadokenakuma. And say that the 6 button megadrive/genesis control pad is the nicest ive tried (well for 2d games any ways).

    The D pad was spot on for all your fireball, dragon punch and even spinning pile driver needs on street fighter 2 (the true test for any d pad!).

    The Xbox 360 Controller hands down, no other controller is universal like that one...2nd place would have to be the N64 controller.

    Xbox 360 controller or the Dual Shock 2 overall.

    I'm really picky about controllers, and I've never used a perfect controller. I'm particularly picky about d-pads; few are any good.

    My answer is the SNES controller, but a PERFECT controller would have the following:
    • SNES d-pad
    • 6 face buttons in SFII 3X3 configuration + select and start
    • two (and only two) triggers
    • button/analog stick layout like the DualShock 2 (except, as above, with six face buttons and two triggers instead of four and four)
    • Shaped like the Xbox360 controller (but with a thinner top end, due to only having one set of triggers)


    The closest thing I've ever seen to this was the Nubytech SFII Anniversary controller, but that has no analog sticks (minor inconvenience) and a mushy, useless d-pad (BIG inconvenience). So I still say SNES, but if any controller company is listening...

    Dual Shock 2 (or dual-shock 3 + sixaxis if you prefer now) hands down,
    360 comes in close second (only because the d-pad is so bad on it and doesnt come with rechargeable batteries)

    1. wiimote + nunchuck
    they fit for almost anything, except maybe big RPG games.

    2. Keyboard + Mouse
    they fit for almost anything except driving games, but awesome for RPG games.

    Purely my opinion

    1. The Wii-mote & Nunchuck - Nice to have your hands how you want, i can even scratch my nose while i am playing (no need to have both hands in front of you to hold a joypad). What i am trying to say is, you can let your hands get in a more relaxed position, the way you like to sit in a chair..etc (when not playing with motion sensor)

    2. The SNES/Playstation controller (nintendo for the credits & I liked the d-pad on the snes more)

    3. Dreamcast controller.

    Despite my likings of the N64 controller, I think the best one is the Dualshock 2

    Edit: LOL, I've just realized that the Dualshock 2 looks like an evolved version of the snes controller :rofl:
    I'm with you, dude. And I always felt it would have been genious if they simply made the stick removable. Maybe buy a 3 pack of replacable sticks for $4.99. The controllers would have lasted forever! I don't care what you say...the N64 controller had absolutely incredible precision. Games like Goldeneye, Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Perfect Dark and Pilotwings will be remembered fondly forever and the controller plays a huge part in that!!!
