Actually, my favorite controller is the NES controller. Its basic, comfortable to use and the buttons feel nice.

Nintendo Wavebird wireless controller for the GameCube is one of the best controllers ever...

Loves my 360 controller as well..

I have big hands, so the Dual Shock drove me crazy because hands always hit each other

Showan beat me to it. The Wavebird was by far the greatest. It fit my hands so well, I still use it when I play old games. The 360 is the second best. I am very hopeful that the Xbox One controller is better than the 360, or worst case, just as comfortable.

I don't like motion controls, and don't find the dualshock controller comfortable at all (badly positioned thumbsticks, poor triggers, too small), I haven't used the PS4 one yet, hopefully it's better. 


That leaves the 360 controller as my 'favourite' modern controller, good size, comfortable for long gaming sessions, just a shame about the horrible d-pad.

I dislike the Xbox controller for the opposite reason. I have small hands so the Xbox controller feels large. The Dual Shock feels much better and the D-Pad is smoother whilst I find the one on the Xbox controller to be sharp.

Best controller ever? The Sega Megadrive 6 button controller.

The Wavebird remains one of the best controller ever created. It should be listed as an option.

I play mostly shooters, so KB+M wins out for me. For games that better suit controllers though, I prefer the XB360 controller. I think Sony continue to make the same mistake favouring Aesthetics over functionality by placing the left thumbstick below the d-pad (although to be fair I hear that this is better with the PS4 controller). I also dislike convex thumbsticks. Concave sits much better. Why Sony changed this for the later PSOne controllers I don't know (I had the original PSX controller with analog sticks, and they were concave).
