Nintendo 64 has left the chat

N64 controller was totally ergonomic as long as you were a mutant tentacle beast.

ID: hmbxe9i

I mean if you ignored the dpad it was basically the superior wii nun chuck design.

The dpad on the left worked great when needed, and generally was simply out of the way.

ID: hmbzq0i

I actually just stick the middle handle in my butt, and use my penis on the joystick.

Pulled some sick combos.

ID: hmbrcro

It’s weird how my memories of the n64 controller are of how much I loved using it. God knows what it would feel like today.

ID: hmbuzs6

IMO as weird as it was at the time I still prefer it to the switch joycons.

Like my hand is almost as long as the switch is wide, who's idea was that?

Dreamcast has left the chat

Dreamcast said fuck this chat. Imma do my thing.

I had a dream last night I was playing Apex on an N64 controller. It felt awkward

ID: hmbsk1h

Looking back, I really don't understand how in the world we figured out how to use that thing, and be comfortable with it. So many different ways to hold it with the three spikes.

The PS5 controller is so different the PS4 controller would hurt my ring and pinky fingers. The PS5 controller is so sleek yet hefty and allows my fingers to sit just right

ID: hmbzu7y

It feels like the controllers grew up with us.

ID: hmc0mue

I mean, PS5 is very similar to the Xbox One Controller, which it’s design is about 7 years old. It took sony a while to catch up, but I like their take on this style of controller too.

PC gamer here, I choose xbox

ID: hmbn4tw

There is a reason that two of the other controllers straight up copied Xbox's controller design.

ID: hmbyr1s

Xbox 360 controller is the progenator god for comfy controller design. Xbone was a small but noticeable improvement, and everything else has followed suit to a certain degree. Still find Dualshocks' stick situation to be awful.

ID: hmbuop7

I have used both xbox and ps controllers over multiple consoles lifetimes.

Xbox is hands down the better controller. Ergonomically.

Also, I prefer just popping in a new battery pack if my current controller needs one. As opposed to needing to plug in your controller or having to use a spare (which might not be available if your playing with someone).

As someone who absolutely hated the original xbox controller as a kid I must say the latest is the best I've ever felt.

I actually got put off xbox due to the controls as a kid.

The new xbox controls replaced an old ps1 controller I had been using all these years for pc.

Do you mean the first Xbox controller? The Duke or something I think it's called. Thing was massive. The made a smaller one after that one.

ID: hmbvvmq

Yeah the very first xbox ever, was horrible compared to Sony and Nintendo offerings at the time.

ID: hmbvb6p

How dare you talk bad about The Duke. It was the best.

6 : Anonymous2021/11/27 21:38 ID: hmbm39y

Xbox elite is an amazing controller especially with customized joystick (I use a convex on the top left). But lately I've been using the ps5 controller a lot and it's one of the best even without considering the haptics. Dualshock 3 was also great for some games.

ID: hmbxnij

I don’t think I could ever go back to not having paddles

I fucking love the steam controller

ID: hmc22n6

For all it’s problems, it’s handfeel is top notch

8 : Anonymous2021/11/27 22:58 ID: hmbwwxj

These are all among the controller I've played and owned. Ergonomically, the steam controller is the absolute most comfortable controller going, just edging ahead of the Xbox controller which has a very similar hand grip to it, but just less comfortable button layouts.

Got PS5/Xbox/Switch pro and I can’t say I notice missing anything when going between the 3. They have subtle differences but nothing that ever sticks out.

ID: hmbt6rq

For my large hands, Xbox bulk feels more “natural”.

ID: hmbvjdt

yea, probably thats why i always prefered sonys, my hands are a better fit for the smaller controllers

10 : Anonymous2021/11/27 21:25 ID: hmbkc61

Xbox and pro controller are easily the best when it comes to comfort.

Xbox 360

ID: hmbiap4

I will always buy them when the current one breaks. They last me about 5 years of normal wear and tear and are about $20 now...and they don't feel awkward.

Plus, don't the military still use them? Feel like I read that somewhere, like the air force uses them for controlling drones or something.

ID: hmbqir4

I think there was a study or feedback or something that using a cheap Xbox controller to fly drones was much easier than using their thousand dollar remote control equipment since they were so accustomed to video games.

The dualsense is as near perfect as it gets to me

ID: hmbw9iw

I really love them, they fit my hand so well and really seem to be optimized for the way I grip my controller. I also really love the way PS5 games use the new triggers and rumble effects.

Came here to say this. People be clowning on the gc controller but its the only one that ever fit comfortably in my big dumb spider hands

15 : Anonymous2021/11/27 21:57 ID: hmboo9p

As a LIFE LONG Xbox player, I absolutely LOVE the new PS5 controller. IMO they hit a home run with that dual sense controller. The best I have ever played with hands down!

16 : Anonymous2021/11/27 20:45 ID: hmbepnv

I really love the Xbox Series X controller, personally.

Probably because I grew up on the Xbox 360, but yeah.

17 : Anonymous2021/11/27 22:31 ID: hmbt8ee

I just got the Stadia controller and i really like it. If I could poit one thing out, the handles should have pointed a few degrees more outward. But still really nice. Also a big fan of the WiiU pro controller.

18 : Anonymous2021/11/27 22:37 ID: hmbu2ln

Not going to lie, the Stadia controller feels surprisingly great. Got a few lying around from all the free stadias google has desperately thrown at me.

19 : Anonymous2021/11/27 20:32 ID: hmbcwe1

Switch Pro is my favourite, closely followed by the Wii U Pro and Xbox One.

Where is the Duke?

21 : Anonymous2021/11/27 21:11 ID: hmbihff

Gamecube was the best imo. The face button layout with a center big button with smaller buttons on the sides is easily the best.

22 : Anonymous2021/11/27 22:31 ID: hmbtbet

I prefer the Stadia controller.

The fact that all of them look like Xbox one design says it all I think

25 : Anonymous2021/11/27 21:31 ID: hmbl467


yeah the controller looked like a Bop-It, but it was so comfortable to hold.

26 : Anonymous2021/11/27 22:47 ID: hmbvcw3

I love the ergonomics of the Steam controller by far the most, but the layout just isn't that good.
