Now, I had an argument with somebody the other day about which console had the best controller..and by best, I mean BEST. Such as the feeling, the button positioning, and well that's about it, I reckon ya'll know what I mean when I say the best controller.

I believe it's the Nintendo Gamecube's controller. Why? Because all of the buttons and sticks are in pretty much a perfect position for your thumbs to reach without having to struggle. But there's also the Xbox 360's controller, because the handles on the controller fit perfectly into your hand, and the sticks have that little dip in 'em that fit your thumb tips perfectly. Opinions on best console controller?

Playstation. They perfected dual analog controls with the release of the PS1.

The controler is mapped to near perfection to fit the average hand. Why do you think the X-box controlers and Wii classic controler are shapped uncanningly simular.

Now if some major gaming industry would just kinda take the best features from all 3 controllers, they could make the perfect controller.

Xbox's texture and button dip
Playstation's motion control capability
Wii's.....ah I got nothin'...
And Gamecube's button layout

They could make, the PERFECT controller.

The NES Power Glove!
....or the running Power Pad for the NES! *cleans the cat piss off of it*
(Just Kidding!)

I'd say either the SNES controller, The Gamecube controller, or the PS2 controller.

Nobody else thinks that the 360's stick dips are perfect for your thumb's tips?

Is that an AVGN reference I see?

*repeatedly and quickly slaps the "1" and "2" colored circles on the Power Pad*

Yup!
