MasonicGamer.com: Doing a best and worst controllers list was never going to be easy, it’s a touchy subject with a lot of different opinions. At first I asked myself how I could possibly compile such a list when there are so many controllers out there, decades worth of crap not to mention plenty of 3rd party abominations.
My solution was to make a list that focused on the more obvious stuff, ideally things that you would see packed in with some of the more major systems. Also preferably something pretty well known amongst the gaming community, nothing too obscure. Think of it as a list based on some of the bigger names in the games industry.
