Sure, most on this website will applaud the GC controller. But what is the truth of the matter?

The system sold terribly! There were plenty of multiplate games, triple AAA games and first party/second party games. The system was cheap and small and pleasant on the eyes.

 But those buttons! Only thing it was good for was fighting games.

 

Then we have the Wii mote. Sold billions? Casuals loved it, wii motion plus was deviously accurate, and ....Zelda duh!

 

But recently I tried to play Mario Kart 8 with the Wiimote. That is when I decided to give my final opinion on the matter. Despite over a decade of loathing, I have to say the wii mote was beyond any doubt, their worst controller. I do not care if wii sports was hella fun, or if FPS contolled better with the mote, I hate it!

 

Agree?

I liked the Gamecube controller, other than the horrendous c-stick.

The N64 controller is easily the worst, followed by the wiimote.

You should add a poll, btw. Would be interesting.

N64 controller was great. That is why it was not included.

Neither, the N64 controller was the worst.

       

The GameCube controller was fairly shat. Perhaps the worst console controller of all time. It was cheap feeling and looked more like a toy than a controller. It also was less useful than previous controllers due to its f'd up d-pad and unusable facebutton configuration, not to mention the really cheap feeling triggers with the springs in them. It was just a bad controller with lots of things that were not very usable: the d-pad was too small, the shoulder buttons were squishy and unresponsive, Y, Z, and X buttons were awkwardly placed and difficult to reach, the right analog stick REALLY looked like something out of Fisher Price. It was really just a two button controller with a bad analog stick.

I don't think anyone who praises it is actually being sincere.

What? The N64 controller is easily the worst one thanks to awful button and analog stick placement!

I mean clearly the gamecube. The Wii mote was great for what it did.

The Wii Remote? I didn't know you did drugs, Ryan.

The N64 controller is the worst. If the GamePad was as heavy as it looked then that would be the worst, but it's surprisingly light.
