Dreamcast controller was awesome and very comfortable only thing I didn't like was the thumbstick needed some cushioning. The N64 was also a great controller only downfall it has was the thumbstick had issues. The Phillips CDi had horrible controllers, Atari had horrible controllers, the Amiga 32 CD has an awful controller plus the awful stuff over the years that 3rd parties crapped out most of them were crap.
Yeah the Amiga Cd32 was a awful design. Only way to really to of made use of that console was by adding a KB+M and a Kempston 🕹. But I did love the hell out of it though, as it was the first time I got to play wing commander 😂
the stock cd32 pad sucked but there were much better 3rd party ones. I used to have a set that looked like genesis controllers.
I disagree with the DC controller. It was a great once you got used to it. The VMU was also revolutionary at the time. I wholeheartedly agree with the N64 though. It was a convoluted nightmare.
Top Worst controllers: Old joysticks for Atari / Amstrad / Commodore / MSX / Zx Spectrum Atari Jaguar N64 Nintendo Switch Master System.
Only one on the list that was Horrible was the Powerglove
Screw you. Dreamcast controller was awesome!
The N64 controller and the Dreamcast controller can probably be forgiven. I don't think they were terrible for what they were, and both were trying something new. For the N64, companies weren't sure how to make a controller for 3D games. The transition from the 4th to 5th gen was awkward in general. It just so happened that Sony stumbled upon a better controller for the times with the DualShock. However, even if the controller was good, control schemes for various games weren't standardized for a good while. I'm glad using triangle to jump among other things was outlawed by the 6th gen, and there were far worse control schemes for games from that era. As for the N64 controller, many games were optimized for it in spite of its unique design. Playing Ocarina of Time on one of the Wii's Pro controllers just made me wish I was using a more authentic controller. The Dreamcast came at the tail end of that era when companies were still trying new things with controllers. I think it does its job. It's actually difficult to imagine what it would be like with any other controller. Same with the N64. You want to look back at bad controllers? If you go back far enough there are controllers that look like phones, or are controlled with weird knobs or trackballs. Now that was a really experimental era for controllers.
Atari 5200, for every reason imaginable.
