My personal top 5:
5) Genesis
4) Dreamcast
3) SNES
2) DualShock
1) 360

I personally like the fit and comfort of the 360 controller above the dualshock. But big props to sony for revising it each time to make it better and more responsive.

Great choice Darth, but I'll have to add in the Sega Saturn 6 button controller in-placed of the Genesis one. That controller was the king for 2D fighting games in its day. The D-Pad has yet to be surpassed.

technically....the genesis 6 button and d-pad layout was the basis for the saturn model. the saturn added L/R bumpers though.

I still consider Dualshock 3 and SNES controllers a fighting game's paradise for console.

The best controllers I have used are, Dualshock, 360 controller, SNES and there was an after market wireless controller for the original Xbox that I loved.

Wii U controller though? I find it funny on my hands.. My cousin always complains about it but my opinion ..not sure Wii u deserve to be on that list.
