I have to say that I TRULY HATED the N64 controller. I just couldn't understand the point of the middle hand part... it looked SOOOOO ridiculous!! And trying to use the analogue stick was so cumbersome when playing games, having to change hands... the only other controller I hate though not quite as much is the NGC controller... those two are both real nightmares lol...

thought I'd share that seeing as I already mentioned my favourite heh ;)  sorry the N64 controller just really irritated me as a child lol

Swapping hands? There are very few games you actually need to use the D-Pad for. You're supposed to hold it in the middle.

Personally the N64 controller is the only analogue-stick controller that I like. Specifically the Competition Pro, being slightly wider it's better if you don't have small hands.

so hang on, how the hell are you supposed to use the stick in the middle? and your saying it wasn't used? I'm pretty sure you HAD to use it in Goldeneye when trying to aim the bloody gun... right?? I could never reach it back in the late 90's/early 2000's when I recall trying it, if I wanted to use it I had to grab the middle part which really sucked, thats how I thought it as meant to be done as the design was so unhelpful and the position of the stick was sooo far away from either thumb!

He saying the joypad doesn't need to be used, not the stick.

Anyway its an abomination of a design, to think Ninty fans slag the Jaguar controller when Nintendo's own are the worst around.

I don't really see what the problem is. It works well with the games if you know what you're doing.

well... lets assume for a minute that we're all video game players and have a ROUGH idea of how to play most games with a controller... how would YOU normally hold that controller when playing Goldeneye? one hand on the far right side, one hand on the middle?

Interesting  :P

Not having the middle bit on other analogue stick controllers is what I find so awkward about them. Feels like there's no proper place to rest your hand/grip the controller.

odd how people differ huh... I find the standard, hands either side to be the norm, my DC Mad Catz controllers give the most comfort/room for my hand to grip but the 360 one is also pretty awesome. Actually also quite like the 6 button Jaguar Controller as well

I like the N64 controller. What I do is tell DreamCast owners to tape the controller cord to the bottom so it doe not feel so weird.

I actually recently got that model of Saturn controller, VERY happy with it! Wish I'd had it when I first got it, I just had the original one and it wasn't in great shape
