The Best Controllers

25 05 2007


CNET Uk did a a list of the top 5 controllers. I bet everyone was expecting the number 1 spot to go the Wii. Did it? Nope! Number 5 was the Atari 2600 joystick. A good controller, and we all think it deserved the number 5 spot. Number 4 came the SNES controller. A definate classic. I still remember where all the buttons were.. Number 3 was the Nintendo 64 controller. This is the only one I’m a little iffy about. The analog was great, but those ‘C’ buttons were pretty useless. A wierd, but surprisingly efficient controller design. Number 2? The Playstation 2 controller. I definately agree with this one, even though I am an Xbox fanboy. It is a great controller, but definately not as good as number one. Number one? The Xbox 360 controller. Can I get a ‘great job’ for the team at Microsoft?
