Wired Red Mario Controller.

Picked this up yesterday $20 early Black Friday Best Buy Deal online.

Now $30. The Zelda’s one is awesome too for $30.

10 foot cord!

Works just as good as my Pro at a small cost.

This one:

You monster! The default Switch d-pad is fine, you just gotta learn to adapt your thumb movements.

Yeah, the split does work, but a traditional d-pad would be way better. Something like this one.

Gotta say, that looks like fine work.

The Pro Controller, because I'm not big into motion controls and like big buttons.

The pro controller is the best. I use it when i can. It's likely the best controller Nintendo ever had.

Pro controller is phenomenal. If only it had analog triggers it would be perfect

What’s your favorite controller to use while gaming on Nintendo Switch?

Personally, dual joy-cons without the grip are my favorite. At first I used the grip, but when I became more comfortable with the joy cons I felt no need to use the grip any more.

What’s your favorite controller to game with on Switch?

I'm the same way.  I used the grip for the first couple of days before I realized how amazingly comfortable and relaxed it is to play with a loose joycon in each hand.  Haven't experienced that since the Wiimote and nunchuck days.



I mostly use the joy-cons with grip. However, I liked Wii games that made use of the Wiimote and nunchuck for normal controller functions. So, I feel like I should be a fan of dual joy-cons without the grip. Maybe I just haven't gotten used to it yet....
