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.

I never had a console as a kid but finally got into them now in my 20s because of you guys, so here are non-nostalgic thoughts from a guy that only played with a mouse and keyboard for two decades:
NES controller- simply horrible. Really uncomfortable and the buttons being in a parallel line from me makes it even less pleasant
SNES- Second to best controller design I held. The bone shape makes it comfy to hold, but the non so ergonomic shape leaves stuff to be desired. (as a btw, the PS controller designs are my favorite)
N64- A little more comfortable than the SNES, but the weird shape of the handles makes it feel... off... like you're not holding a controller designed for human hands. Strangely enough, the three handle design is not the cause. It has three so you can hold two at a time, depending on the type of game you're playing (2D with the D-pad, and 3D with the stick). You switch between them depending on the game.
Gamecube- only had the chance to play with it once but after you get used to it, it's really not that bad... still pretty bad, though. I see what they were going for, making the most used buttons more obvious, but it works better on paper than in practice.
Wii- haven't gotten to it, sorry

And then there's the Wii U gamepad, which weighs 4 times as much as any normal controller, sports 4 trigger buttons, 2 analog sticks, 1 directional pad, the standard abxy buttons, a tv button, a power button and a goddamn touch screen. AND it's comfy as hell to hold. I can tell you that I've gained quite a bit of muscle from holding that thing for hours on end.
User avatar #67 to #62 - plyxo (08/28/2014) [-]
My gamepad doen't weigh **** . Both my wiimote and 360 controller are heavier. Only the PS controllers are lighter after my opinion...

Although it looks odd, the gamecube controller is extremely comfortable. Maybe it's a bit small for adult hands, specially that little yellow thumbstick, but I understand that nintendo's main demographic is kids which tend to have small hands.

don't own a console, but i have one of these for 5 years, and still works like a charm.

I fail to see how the GmeCube controller 'exhausts the limits of button cramming technology' when N64 had 10 buttons plus a D-pad.

I like the game cube controller ...It fit comfortably in my hands... but the ones with the turbo button would not for some reason .
