All the same, it's my favourite too. Well, actually the 's' type controller.
The majority of retro controllers are just too small.

If I had to pick a retro controller, it would be the Atari paddles.
Most games (via emulation) can be played with any controller you like.
But the paddle controllers are an important part of the experience when playing Warlords, Kaboom etc

The question asked is "favourite console controller"
The xbox is a console so that was my answer lol
Retro wise then it'll be the Megadrive controller :)

in terms of looks, the Atari VCS joystick is a retro classic -not a perfect controller though.

Current controllers all suck.

Alot of "retro" ones sucked too.

.... except the Saturn's controller.  That thing is perfection.

I tend to fluctuate on deciding which are my favourite game controllers. My top three choices right now would probably be,

* Competition Pro Star / Pro Extra joystick
* Dreamcast Arcade Stick
* Vectrex Control Panel

Mine would be this, the official DC Pads were too narrow, they weren't wide enough and I often found my elbows hitting each other frequently, the Mad Catz was the Pinnacle for me!!



followed closely by :



and



I know I can't include the one for the 360 but goddamn is that my Actual/All time favourite lol, but if it had to be a dead/obsolete console only I'd say DC Mad Catz hands DOWN. for 3rd party products they lasted FAR longer than even the officials

really? it died in like 2005, but hey, as you say it wasn't my top one lol I think a joint 3rd would probably be the pro controller for the Jag actually, I like that, although has anyone noticed all the controls are screwed up when you play games that don't specifically support it? I find problems with Battle Morph (see my vids on youtube you will see what I mean lol) where buttons are completely on "the piss" when using the better controller :(

I have never found that and I only use my Pro.

ABC should always be the same, XYZ and the shoulder buttons are just mapped to be the same as 123 and 4 & 6 on the Keypad.
