How did the Dual Shock get to number 2? That's one of the worst controllers I've ever used (well, I haven't used much)! The prongs are too short and too fat, you can't really keep your fingers on the L1-L2-R1-R2 buttons like you can with the GCN controller, the analog sticks are much worse than Nintendo analog sticks (you sometimes don't know if you're going left-up or left, whereas with N64, GCN and Wii you can feel when you 'hit' a direction'. I would put the GCN controller at number 2 instead.

The N64 controller, that one's pretty good too, only it feels strange to suddenly have your hands so close to each other after playing with the seperated Wiimote/nunchuk combo.

The Dualshock/2 is pretty comfortable.

Well, I guess for each his own. I hate the Dual Shock. Actually, when I was playing Okami, I was thinking "This game is great... It's only fault is the controller you have to use with it".

I don't think I even saw the Gamecube controllers on there.
It must of just been a popularity vote, because thats the most comfortable and easy to use controller out there.
Someone whos never played one before can instantly use it thanks to its brilliant design, everything is just in the right place.

N64 controller is a close second for me, it would be perfect if it wasn't for the analouge wearing out.

Agreed! Exactly! GameCube controller is great!

Maybe they're talking about the analog sticks in the later LodgeNet systems? (See the 'Hotel N64' topic)

I like the N64 controller - even though its shape is weird, it's still quite easy to hold compared to some other controllers (especially the nightmare that is the DualShock). The buttons and trigger were good, big enough and the right shape (flat and not rounded like Xbox buttons). The only major fault was the analog stick (I never actually used the D-pad so I can't comment on that).

Actually, now that I think about it, the N64 controller ranks in my top 3 of favourite controllers... right after the GameCube controller (absolute best, except the shoulder buttons) and the Xbox 360 controller (a close second, has much better shoulder buttons and triggers but a worse D-pad and rounded face buttons).
