Gamecube...hands down

A little ugly looking but so god damn comfortable in your hands.

It was brilliant for Smash Bros and even Mario Kart Double Dash

As you know I still cling to the idea of Nintendo making an updated Gamecube controller like those mock-ups. Maybe for the next system....hopefully. The gamepad is alright but I wouldn't want to see it again.

it was perfect for Resi 4 too as if Gamecube controller was made for specifically for that game

those awesome "A pressing" sequences

haha I sense a lot of highschoolers here. The best life to date controller for Nintendo is the SNES and of course the WiiU controller is the best since controllers get better after every generation typically.

Best controller is the X1 controller. I'm from the Sony camp and I said it.

Y'all keep saying GameCube but it's a flawed controller. The face buttons make the A button great but the other buttons awkward. The Knob on the C button is too small. The D-pad pretty much useless in that awkward area. Analog stick is okay just like any other controller. The triggers are the best. And then the Z button is crappy and more crappy than the 360 bumper buttons. The controller is missing a L1 button.

This! Gamecube was the best, most comfortable controller. It does not hold up now cause it would need more buttons, improved C stick and improved D pad but in the day man it was a good controller

Love the NES (Da bomb D-pad), SNES (shoulder buttons), Gamecube (Wavebird and regular rock) and Wii U gamepad (screen is just so fun).

I gotta give it to the Wii U Gamepad.

It's got all the necessary buttons on top of a screen that gives me even more gameplay potential for more abilities than any standard controller can offer me.
And despite its size, it's really comfortable.

UnceasingElias1508d ago

Totally agree with you. It was the gamepad that sold me on the wii u.

I'd love to see a gamepad redesign. Not that I would buy an extra gamepad, since the one that came with my WiiU works fine, but a little better handling on the edges, larger ABXY buttons, and bumpers that hang off the edge of the controller so they're easier to press would be great. It's a little awkward shifting from the right stick to the buttons, and going from triggers to bumper, but as you play with it and get used to it, the gamepad becomes fairly intuitive.

I would not mind seeing the gamepad reused in further Nintendo consoles. With some small adjustments to the handling and battery life I can see it becoming a staple in game controllers. There's a little too much plastic, and I admit the white color is more toy-like than the black.

It looks big and clunky at first but it grows on you. For a game like Mario Kart it works perfectly, but on shooters and platformers with multiple buttons it's not as well designed (having slight issues playing Super Metroid), but I love what it brings to my WiiU experience.

I agree with you on everything except the comfortable part, I cant play Mario Kart for longer than a half an hour because my hands start cramping up. The gamecube on the other hand was amazingly comfortable, still is!

-Foxtrot1508d ago (Edited 1508d ago )

Exactly I don't see why people say the gamerpad is comfortable. After a while your hands start cramping up

It really depends on the size of peoples hands. To me it's more of a Marmite controller, some people love it or hate it.

So I don't understand people thinking it's an amazing controller when it's got some flaws. For me, it's too big for my small hands, not to mention with some genres like FPS it's horrible.

GameCube controller, gamepad,N64, Snes are awesome too

boing11508d ago
