Fave: The PS2 controller because it's just the ultimate standard controller that's easy to use, feels great in your hand, has lot's of buttons without overwhelming you. And that's closely followed by the N64 one which while not even being remotely useful for anything that wasn't specifically designed for it, it had a really neat design and probably the best analogue stick I've ever used... Until the damn thing inevitably would brake. But when the control was new it was neat.
Least: Two way tie between the original Xbox and the Dreamcast controllers. Both suffered from being too big and clunky. Especially the Xbox controller but the Dreamcast had that awkward "cord on the bottom of the controller" issue to deal so it all evens out.

FAVE: 360 controller. Not the most revolutionary by design but the most comfortable. The only annoyance is the circular d-pad in some games but the analog stick more than makes up for it.

LEAST FAVE: The Dreamcast controller. It lacked dual analog, a significant amount of button (making it unport-friendly) and the hunk of plastic actually hurts my hand after extended play.

Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

Listing simple favorite/least favorite stuff is really hard, and not entirely fair (some are too close to name just one). I love the Gamecube controller for any game that doesn't need the D-pad, which sucks major rear end. The Playstation controller is just great, imo (no idea why so many people are bashing it).

I have used the Jaguar controller, and agree with those who say it's crap. I also hate BOTH versions of the the original Xbox controller (either way, the white and black buttons make for TOO MANY FACE BUTTONS!), and I'm not the biggest 360 controller fan either (crappy D-pad which I hate more than the Gamecube D-pad, and weird, semi-unresponsive face buttons).

I know, right? I mean, why are people bashing on it? I never had a problem with the PlayStation controller as a child, and I don't have a problem with it now. It just boggles my mind!
