Nintendo has tried many different styles of controllers throughout its history as a game company. Which controllers have stood the test of time?
Still a big fan of the Wave Bird. It worked like a dream and wasn't a battery hog. It was also the first wireless game controller I ever owned. Even got it on a discount because of a coupon Nintendo had sent out to Nintendo power subscribers.
Gamecube/wavebird is my favorite. It had a great feel and button layout.
The Super NES controller is their best, followed by the original NES and the WiiU. All other Nintendo-designed controllers are garbage.
Switch Pro Controller is Top 3. Battery life is amazing.
"What is Nintendo Best Controller ?? " Snes controller Nintendo has not made a good one since. (In my personal opinion of course)
The Switch Pro controller is a top tier controller even outside of Nintendo platforms imo. I have at least one of every modern controller (Dualshock, Dualsense, Xbox and Switch Pro) and think it's actually superior to the Xbone/Series controller with the L1/R1 bumpers alone.
Seems like you're trolling but can't quite tell. Switch Pro doesn't even have analog triggers so it's not even in the running. Also please try Dualsense and you'll sing a different tune. Though if you're trolling than good job, got me haha.
@gamers I'm not trolling, I literally listed the controllers I have since I own all the platforms, so i have used Dualsense extensively. What so obviously troll like about think the Switch Pro is a phenomenal controller? I didn't say Switch Pro was the best, it's top 3. Switch Pro has better ergonomics and superior bumpers to the current Xbox controller, you could argue the digital on/off style trigger is a desirable feature since most premium controllers feature shorter triggers that are closer to digital than analog.
my favorite of all time was the GameCube. The button layout was unique and perfect for me
Not the joycon that pos is the worse controller ever. Have went through 4 to 6 of these things and there so expensive. Even the switch controllers with the nintendo characters on them have given me drift on the joystick. I was pretty happy with nintendo up until this. I grew up with nintendo i remember still playing the first mario nes game in the late 80s. While visiting I got sent off as a kid to play in a game room while the adults from what i know now toked up. I was hooked on video games after that.
NES controller. Still works like the first day and is borderline unbreakable.
The gamecube was the best, n64 is my most beloved despite it being terrible lol.
Nes, SNES, GC, Switch Pro controller when it doesn't have joystick drift for me. I would also say N64 but the poor thumbstick design becomes a pain to change out.
SNES. Would've went Gamecube but the d-pad was too small for fighting games.
I still vote the original NES controller. Jump, Attack, pause, and items. That's about 99% of the gaming library. Simple, easy, and made gaming fun and enjoyable. My second would be the N64 controller because of the 6 buttons on the side for fighting games instead of 4 and the 2 at the top.
My brain cannot comprehend smash bros. if it’s not a GameCube controller. I guess GameCube or SNES.
Gamecube for me. Which funnily enough was the last console of theirs I actually enjoyed.
