The N64 and Gamecube controllers were actually pretty comfortable.

The Wiimote, however, was awful.

As if the original Xbox controller didn't have 3 more buttons than the GC.

Evolution of Sony's Controllers.

first generation Playstation controller:

the snes controller looks good. let's double the shoulder buttons for no apparent reason, and add some handles! no one will be the wiser.

After having an SNES, N64, Gamecube, PS2, Xbox, 360, and a PS3, I have to say, the Gamecube has the most comfortable controller I've ever held. Sure, it feels a little wonky at first if you've only exposed yourself to the static design of the Xbox or Dualshock controllers, but it feels like its the only one that sacrificed aesthetics and symmetry for the sake of having the best fit in your hands. The L and R buttons kinda wrap around your index fingers, the A button, being the mostly used button in most games, is large, as it is a higher priority, B being the second most used is still a seperate button, but is put close so you dont have trouble finding it, and the X and Y button are put close, and designed around the A button, making them easy to find and press. Along with the curved, slightly-balled-at-the-end design of the legs, it truly feels like the only controller that was designed around your hand.

Almost all games used 2 of 3 parts, and per game the devs could decide which layout would work the best for that specific game. It's genius really.

I like the n64 controller. It let's you decide if you want to use a joystick or a dpad.

The 64 controller was like that so you could control either the D-pad or stick with your left hand. Though it was... meh. Still love my 64 though.

Isn't the gamecube controller regarded as the best controller for any console ever?
#48 - anonymous (08/28/2014) [+] (1 reply)
I get the theory behind the N64 controller, it's supposed to be three different control schemes based on what game you're playing: both outside handles / middle and left / middle and right. But then it turns out that almost every game just ignores the left handle because the analog stick is much more useful for 3D games, which ruins the whole design.

Still some great games on the system, but man, what an awful controller.

Still better than the Dreamcast controller
