wtf is up with the buttons? the A button is like 4 times as big as anything on the whole controller

I loved the different sizes of the buttons.. triggers were extremly good.. nice *clik* in the end.. The controller felt good in the hand! One of the best controllers ever made..

I didn't like it. I found the directional pad to be a bit unresponsive, the analog sticks had that octagon border which prevented fluid movement, there were 3 shoulder buttons which was weird and the joysticks were asymmetrical. Overall I thought it was a very poor controller.

The best controller last gen easily.

Wow I cant believe that many people liked it...
Anyways I thought it was a horrible controller. The way the buttons were layout and the way it felt blugh! Original FAT Xbox control was worse though this was 2nd. PS2 controller really was the best.

It wasn't to much of a nusance for me, but it still was a little annoying, especially when trying to play some VC games with it. A word of advice, don't try play super mario world with a gamecube controller. It's as annoying as hell.

Well it fit so well best of the las tgen. Loved the diff colours of the buttons. Also it felt so right when i played a game on the cube.Second best Controller.

For me:

GC>XBOX>PS2 controller.

same order this gen. The only thing I didn't like about the GC controller was the C-stick. I absolutely loved the trigger buttons.

I also like how the analog stick doesn't have completely round outlines. It's easier to point it in the four directions since they have groves in them. I always had problems using the PS2 analog stick because it's low placement + a round outline. I never could tilt it straight up when I wanted to.
