Throughout the evolution of gaming we have also bore witness to many new controllers. We take a look at 5 of the best controllers ever released.
The Xbox One controller is an improvement in every category over the 360 controller. Not sure how you could list the 360 without listing the X1.
1. Ps4 2. Nes (simple yet functional) 3. Game cube 4. Xbox 360 5. Sega Mega Drive That's my list anyway. My top 5 "hated" 1.xbox original (bear controller) 2.n64 3.wii for non motion 4.dreamcast. (love love love the console) 5.atari jaguar That ones in no order and it doesn't mean I don't like the console.
The Xbone controller has cheap small thimbsticks and odd button placement. The 360 controller is still better and even more comfortable, the Xbox Controller S from back in the day. Still hands down the Wavebird Gamecube and PS4 controllers are the best I've ever seen. PS4 DS4 is the best Dualshock and the Gamecube controller was crafted by aliens it worked so brilliantly.
Can someone just list them? so sick of these click through bullpoop sites
Snes controller, dualshock 4, 360, dreamcast, and gamecube. Agree with all except the gamecube controller, that thing is a mess, like they shook up some buttons and threw it on a controller.
ps4 DS4 and Xbox one Controller are perhaps the two best I've ever played, wiiu gamepad is smooth as hell too the xbox 360 controller was legendary and inspired DS4 and wiiu gamepad a little all controllers are awesome this generation :)
How'd the xbox 360 controller inspire the dualshock 4? Triggers? Nope.
1.Xbox one pad(perfection) 2.DualShock4 (Massive improvement over DS3) 3.Xbox 360 pad(Was #1 IMO till this gen) 4.OG xbox pad (a good start for MS) 5.Dualshock3 (as awful as it was its iconic)
What is it with all these comfort whores hating on the DS3? It was massively superior to the 360 controller as far as performance is concerned. Analogs were 10bit vs 8bit, Smaller deadzone, longer and convex vs concave, both of which increase precision. No slow turn issue, No centering issues, (MS quality control on the controllers was horrible) The face buttons and L1/R1 were analog vs digital which made them pressure sensitive, don't even get me started on the 360s brutal D-pad vs the DS2/3 which have by far the best D-pads ever, the L2/R2 buttons are softer which made them much better for racing games. Practically the only areas the 360 controller was better was the ergonomics which is arguable, and the curve on the L/R vs L2/R2. The 360 controller is horribly clunky and slow. MS themselfs at one point were actually planning on allowing one game to be cross platform, cannot remember which one but after beta testing they found that PS3 players were mopping the floor with 360 players almost every match and they canned the idea because of it.
@Dasteru Man I hope you're ready for some ravenous xbox fanbase horde mode style commenting!
@UltraNova: Disagree's and critisism do not bother me. I am simply stating technical facts that anyone with basic mechanical knowledge would know. If people want to hate on me for it, so be it.
Xbox One controller is pretty freaking fantastic. People with both consoles actually play multiplat titles on Xbone despite slightly inferior graphics because that controller is so comfortable. 360 was good controller as well. For mobile I really like the Nvidea Shield controller
Agreed, Xbox One controller is great :)
I hate websites where they just put a paragraph on one page and then you have "next" links on the bottom. Will never visit again
The DS4 is my favorite controller with only one complain(battery life) as I got the new models with the much durable thumb sticks. But even then its not a issue cus every time my gaming session ends, I charge all my three controllers.
1. Xbox One Controller (Thumb-sticks a bit too small) 2. Xbox 360 controller (D-pad is mediocre) 3. Dual Shock 4 (Great features, but battery life could be better.[I also prefer asymmetrical controller sticks]). 4.Original Xbox (Lacked bumpers) 5. Nintendo Gamecube (Nice design, controller had some issues with non exclusives) 6.Dual Shock 3 (A bit to small, gave me cramps) 7.Xbox big duke (Way too big) Thats mine opinion at least. I want to try out the Wii U gamepad and pro controller when ever I get a Wii U console
1. DS3 2. DS4 3. Dreamcast 4. DS1 5. DS2 6. Controller S
Xbox One .. Is the best controller ever
DS4 for sure is #1 on my list #2 Dreamcast #3 DS3 #4 Xbox one (controller would be perfect if they fixed the Left and right triggers) #5 Atari 2600 lol..loved those gamepads
Xbox one controller is the best controller ever. Perfect thumb stick placement, rumble trigger, super long battery life, melts in your hand, no annoying light that reflect off the TV....the list goes on and on.
Yeah, Sony really should have it turn off until you need to use it.There's a light and it never goes out...
