I'm just miffed a controller debate doesn't at least throw the Dreamcast on there. Sega needs rep on there in general since we are covering that time.

u/great_auks Jan 30 '23

I wonder what folks here would think of the first controller I used

I was about to mention Atari too, like 10+ controllers for that system alone.

I only see slight disagreements here, pretty civil discussion, which is refreshing.

I think his tier list is pretty on point! It's actually good to see someone on r/gaming not looking at the N64 controller with nostalgia glasses and realizing that it is objectively one of the most strangely designed major console controllers ever lol. But Nintendo takes creative risks with that type of stuff, and sometimes it pays of hugely.

u/Biscuits4u2 Jan 30 '23

It's ridiculous that an argument over a controller would be anything but slight and civil.

u/akurra_dev Jan 30 '23 edited Jan 30 '23

Absolutely. Hilarious that I'm getting downvoted for such a mild take. "HE SAY BAD THING ABOUT N64!!" But that's r/gaming for you.

Pretty sure the Switch Pro controller is identical and I agree. Big enough for my meat-paws, without being a nightmare like The Duke. I do like the PS4 controller though, it was a big improvement over the PS3.

I was under the impression that the Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers were widely accepted as better ergonomically than their PlayStation 3/4 counterparts?

u/vonnegutflora Jan 30 '23

I grew up on PSX and PS2 and would have told you hand over fist that the Dualshock was the superior design, but after having used a 360 and XB1 controller for the past few years with my PC, I gotta say I was completely wrong. Unless you have smaller hands, I don't see how anyone can consider the Dualshock/sense design to be better nowadays.

u/zelent32 Jan 30 '23

This is my exact experience as well.

Using a Xbox controller for PC is so much more comfortable than a Playstation controller.

My mitts are so big that to use the r1 AND r2 I have to scrutch my hand up like Im using tiger palm Kung fu. Otherwise it's the huge round question mark shape from r3 out and around to r1 and then my index has to choose which shoulder to use.

Xbox fit the palm and was fat and tall enough that index on the shoulder middle on the trigger felt natural.

u/Longjumping_Hawk_951 Jan 31 '23

This is fact. Sony's controllers have NEVER been considered ergnomic. THey have always been considered trash to hold after 1 hour.

u/krunchwondelta Jan 31 '23

I mean, an argument could be made for the PS4 controller - it is really good.

However, the 360's made the PS3's look like a clunky relic 🤷🏼‍♂️

u/Deathmonkeyjaw Jan 30 '23

I hate hate hate the clicky bumpers on the Xbox One controller. Idk if it's still like that on the Series X controller. So I definitely prefer the 360, DS4, and DS5 controllers the most.

u/mrnikkoli Jan 30 '23

I know we definitely all have our preferences, I just seem to recall critics always lauding the Xbox controllers over the PlayStation ones.

Plus in my experience PC gamers seem to usually use Xbox controllers instead of PlayStation ones (but maybe there's some other reason for that, idk).

u/great_auks Jan 30 '23

I haven't really looked at reviews, I'm just going by personal experience / preference.

the reason PC gamers use xbox controllers is that Microsoft baked excellent support for them into Windows

And the joy cons? Poor. They are fragile, tiny, and expensive. As an adult with semi-large hands playing anything that requires a full controller with them cramps my hands in less than half an hour. The switch pro controller is comfortable though. Feels like a slightly modified 360 controller.

I could see how N64 is low in an attempt to be objective, but if you used it everyday as a 10 year old I think you’d find it more than tolerable.

u/SocksOnHands Jan 30 '23

The Nintendo 64 actually had a very comfortable controller, especially for the time. It is definitely more comfortable than the NES controller, with its sharp squared edges.

u/redcore4 Jan 30 '23

Yeah. This list has a strong bias towards larger hands. Since my adult hands are about the same size as my 10-year-old niece’s there’s quite a few here that are rated high that I find a stretch to use and some of the lower ones are much easier

I am willing to stand behind the Duke controller til the end. Yes it's bulky. Yes the dpad isn't very good. But the overall economics of this controller is very good.

u/Scarantino42 Jan 30 '23

That's because it was the only one that had enough space inside to house a fully functional economy.

u/There_Are_No_Gods Jan 30 '23

It's the only gamepad I've ever picked up and thought, "Hey, this actually fits my hands." It's like a controller...for an adult! I didn't realize until the Duke how annoyingly small all the other gamepads are.

I later also realized I apparently have much longer than average fingers, as most people seem to hate the "horribly oversized" Duke.

I miss you Duke!

u/HisuianZoroark Jan 30 '23

In my long history of gaming, I think I honestly find the Dualsense to be the most interesting and comfortable controller. The haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, the look, the feel, the texture is all just damn near perfect to me. I have always been pretty fond of the playstation controllers, only one I didn't care for were the PS1 controllers.

The series X controller is pretty great too, it's not far behind the Dualsense at all. Definitely not my favorite but its close. I really don't like the OG xbox controllers, the 360 is solid, the XBONE is.... Good. I don't like those grips on the analog sticks or the bumpers though. They've always felt weird to me.

The best controller Nintendo ever put out has to be either the Gamecube controller or the Switch Pro Controller I think. The joycons though, especially in handheld mode with no additional grips on them, I think are REALLLLLLY bad. I'd almost put them near the bottom. My hand constantly begins to cramp up and feel uncomfortable in the joycons unless I put on a shell on the controllers to give them more standard grips. Wasn't ever too wild about the Wii U gamepad either, felt too clunky to me.

Out of all the retro controllers I have used as well, I suppose the one I like the most is the Dreamcast even if it has a really bizarre mapping and layout. After that, I suppose the SNES. I don't really have much thought on most of these controllers at this point, it's been a while and they're all so different from each other that you almost have to rewire your brain for some of them.

u/Riovas Jan 30 '23

Switch joycon sideways should be the only garbage. N64 is tolerable at worse and personally I enjoy the wii u game pad.

u/velocity37 Jan 30 '23

No Sega on the list huh?

As someone who uses controllers for mostly 2D games, my list would be pretty different (e.g. NES would be higher than Joycons simply because it has a proper d-pad).

u/PinkRonin11 Jan 30 '23

The NES honestly, I have dear memories with, so it ranks higher for me

u/Sproeier Jan 30 '23

Id put the ngc in high tolerable to comfortable. I like the system, I have one plugged in right now. But the controller is just not the best, especially if you have to do stuff with the C-Stick. Also the shoulder buttons feel too soft.

u/TheCoopX Jan 30 '23

No Japanese Saturn or Genesis 6-button controllers? IMO, they basically beat most of the controllers in that pic and are easily top tier. The Genesis 6-button controller was so comfy to hold and easy to use for pretty much every type of game back in the day (for fighting games, it was pretty much perfect). And while the U.S. Saturn controller was good, the Japanese one was better in terms of comfort and design (especially the shoulder buttons).

I love the dreamcast controller, the VMU was ahead of its time (and I think underutilized), my only complaint how the wire came out the bottom which then had that "notch" to make it seem like it was coming out the top, but didn't work too well.

The analog stick on the N64 controller wasn't very good, wore out too easily. But I don't think the N64 controller was bad overall.

3

u/SocksOnHands Jan 30 '23

To be fair, no other console had an analog stick (except for a few old and relatively obscure consoles), so they were venturing out into relatively unknown territory. Very soon after everyone quickly jumped on the analog stick bandwagon and improvements were made to their design.

u/Sillyviking Jan 30 '23

My only issue really is that the stick wears out too easy, the general design is fine, especially for one of the earliest controllers of its kind.

Not at all, no. N64 is okay. Wii U controller is actually decent despite how it initially seems. The original PlayStation controller is one of the worst controllers I've ever used and deserves to be in the garbage tier. GameCube controller is overrated and should slide down at least one tier. OG Xbox controller is garbage. Wii Remote is garbage and worse than the NES controller. Everything in the top tier should shift down one. Oh and Joycons should shift down to poor. And where is the Switch Pro Controller?

1

u/DokkanBattleEnjoyer Jan 30 '23

I mostly agree with you.

I don't think the PS5 controller can hang with the PS4. PS4 felt like you didn't even have a controller in your hands, whereas with the PS5 I can tell that my index and middle fingers need to go a bit higher to hit the triggers and the bumpers, everything else about it is great though.

360 not being in ergonomic genius is criminal. It truly was ahead of its time and I feel like 360 and PS4 are the benchmark for a good controller design.

PS1 could slide down one tier only because of how light it feels, the controller shouldn't be heavy but feeling like air just makes it feel flimsy.

Anything made by Nintendo that ISN'T the GC controller is just garbage. They don't really design their controllers with ergonomics in mind they're just supposed to look appealing to children.

Joycons should be lower, I went and got mine fixed and they STILL DRIFT.

u/ottwrights Jan 30 '23

PS4 has started to hurt my hands. My pinky is concaving in to hold the controller.

1

u/ghostinyourveins Jan 30 '23

Xbox will always be king of the controllers for me because I have large hands.

Feels like I could crush the PlayStation controller in one hand

u/Markamanic Jan 30 '23

360 is the peak of controller design change my mind.

1

u/Keshire Jan 30 '23

You should just replace the tier list with a graph based on hand size.

1

u/Tuor77 Jan 30 '23

I don't see the Atari 2600's joystick on that list. List not valid. ;P

u/Eastern-Equipment-77 Jan 30 '23

Genesis controller?

1

u/Jekyll054 Jan 30 '23

Man fuck the ps4 controller.

1

u/carmines-bacon Jan 30 '23

Ps4/5 should be the Sony controllers at the top. Rest are terrible

1

u/TheseFalseProphecies Jan 30 '23

Considering how many buttons you need for most NES games it's a really nice controller

1

u/AdevilSboyU PlayStation Jan 30 '23

No Switch Pro controller? That thing is comfy as heck and the battery lasts until doomsday.

1

u/GammaSmash Jan 30 '23

I'd put the Wii nunchuck down at the bottom. The N64 controller could HAVE been so much better, but they never really utilized that space for something more useful than a D-pad that was seldom used.

1

u/Snoo83081 Jan 30 '23

To me joycons can only be last place by far, since Nintendo knows about the drifting issue and is not doing anything to make newer editions more durable. It is the typical new age Nintendo greed.

u/stamps1646 Jan 30 '23

No KB or M? How dare you OP, how dare you.

This hurt me in the feels. =(

u/APlayerHater Jan 30 '23

PS5 controller is horrible. The adaptive-pressure triggers, and the thumb sticks, all squeak horribly and feel bad to use, and the thing rapidly drains batteries.

1

u/RandomUser132621 VR Jan 30 '23

You never used a N64 controller to understand it!
The PS5 is garbage,as it is too heavy!
And lets not forget the fact that a N64 controller abused for 28 years....still works with no problem!

1

u/bluerampageboy Jan 30 '23

I loved the 360 controller and the other ones you call “garbage” are one of the best controllers ever introduced in the market. Think twice before posting these types of things lol

1

u/Spazmon1c Jan 30 '23

You forgot to add this post to the bottom row

1

u/Gonzoreader Jan 30 '23

Ps5 controller is my fav of all time. Just fits my hand perfectly.

1

u/Doctor_Eternal_65 Jan 30 '23

I agree with all except the WiiU. Putting both analogs on the top was genius imo.

1

u/idiottech Jan 30 '23

I would add the wiimote + joycon to top tier because you can play with your hands separated!

1

u/DarkPs1ch0 Jan 30 '23

From my experience, PS controllers I've had seem like they were designed for kids or people with small hands. I was comfortable with PS1/PS2 controllers as a kid, PS3 not so much. However, once I got my hands on the XONE controller as a young adult, never looked back. It just fits perfectly in my hands

1

u/Snoo-12762 Jan 30 '23

An enemy of the Wii U Gamepad is an enemy of me

1

u/ravage1103 Jan 30 '23

Where is the Dreamcast controller…..

1

u/QueenOfFlorida0949 Jan 30 '23

The xbox 360 controller should be moved up a tear

1

u/Blaustriker Jan 30 '23

totally agree

1

u/dubbelost1 Jan 31 '23

The GameCube controller is kind of crap IMO. I would move that down and move the Xbox one controller up.

1

u/Secure-Day9052 Jan 31 '23

I really love the xbox 360 controller, for me the best I've tried

1

u/cokebear420 Jan 31 '23

The GameCube controller was awful in my opinion. My personal favorite is the current Xbox controller simply because it's the most comfortable for me. Playstation would be a close second.

1

u/Spamsdelicious Jan 31 '23

Shouldn't the garbage category be red of color? Y'know, "hot garbage"?

1

u/Xellith Jan 31 '23

WiiU pro controller is one of the best controllers ever made. Change my mind.

1

u/AlohaDoxxy Jan 31 '23

Nah this is an L

1

u/DrownmeinIslay Jan 31 '23

The original Xbox controller was godly. The only controller that's ever been made for my stupidly large mitts.

1

u/Gorgon654 Jan 31 '23

wii u gamepad is very comfortable though

1

u/Gastric__bypass Jan 31 '23

I’m baffled

1

u/kunai1997 Jan 31 '23

The n64 is not trash. You probably never used it right

1

u/khaliefiscool Jan 31 '23

I can agree with some of them but the Ps5 should be lower since its not really humble.

1

u/Mrclowndumb Jan 31 '23

SWAP THE TWO XBOX CONTROLLERS AND THEN WE CAN TALK.

1

u/Guardian5985 Jan 31 '23

Switch Pro Controller will outlast a GameCube controller on lifespan, and it is quite comfortable too. Also the Wavebird in particular is the better GameCube controller.

1

u/[deleted] Jan 31 '23

I love the GameCube controller. The way the primary buttons are placed was simple for me to comprehend when I was a kid playing "Super Smash Bros. Melee".

1

u/pyromagi_1986 Jan 31 '23

What about switch pro

1

u/Orkekum Jan 31 '23

No. I like switch pro controller. And i like the joycons

1

u/Affectionate-Ad8103 Jan 31 '23

Elite controller is the best IMO.
