Sometimes our controllers aren't the best for the game we wanna play. If you're looking to get the absolute best control and play the games they were meant to be played you might want these.

Hori Mini Nintendo 64

Tired of that shitty N64 analog stick? Well problem solved! Imagine if the Gamecube controller had a baby with the N64 controller. The only problem is they're a bit cramped for space if you want to play 2D games. (Shit for 2D, great for 3D)

If you'd prefer to have the normal style N64 controller you could buy some Lodgenet N64 controllers with the improved GCN style stick (about $25 on ebay) and mod them to work on an actual N64/swap the analog to a standard controller. Don't bother with 3rd party replacement analogs they work horribly with some games (like Smash Bros).

Hori Digital Pad Nintendo GameCube The GCN controller was also having an affair with the SNES controller.. Feels almost the same as a SNES controller but with GCN button layout and contoured bottom for extra comfort. This thing is pretty pricey too, but it's perfect for GBA games and whatever 2D games you have. (Standard GCN is shit for 2D) Ajxbnk.jpg

Agetec Arcade Stick

Dreamcast The "Official" arcade stick for the Dreamcast (Not made by SEGA). Since the Dreamcast has an amazing library of fighting games and the standard DC isn't the best for those you might want to pick one up. Might want to mod for best results, Sanwa stick and buttons are good. Agetec.jpg
Atari Paddle Controller Atari 2600 Theres a lot of controllers for Atari, this and the standard joystick and the only two you'll need. Your only option for great games like Kaboom, Super Breakout, and Warlords. Don't mix it up with the driving controller! Con AtariPaddles.jpg
Batarang Wired Controller Xbox 360/PC Like the 360 controller, but hate the D-pad? Well here ya go! The D-pad is vastly superior, but pretty much the same thing otherwise... LED changes 7 different colors if you care. Batarang Wired.jpg
NES Advantage NES Sturdy as shit. That thing ain't going nowhere. Has adjustable turbo buttons, a switch so that you can just use one controller for alternating 2 player games, and a top notch arcade quality joystick. Great for Shoot em ups. NES Advantage Controller.jpg

PDP Wired Fight Pad

Wii U

A licensed Wii U controller that works the same as Nintendo's Pro controller, these emulate the button and stick placement of the Gamecube pad for easier playing for those familiar with the layout. You can get it in whatever flavor of Nintendo mascot you want.

Remember, you'll need a standard Wii controller to plug this into. There's also a Hori controller that stays truer to the Gamecubes buttons, but has mixed reviews on responsiveness.
