Sometime in the near future, I'd like to translate my favorite LNs, VNs, games and Manga series.

I like the feel of it, but yeah, having played with it for a few hours, it didn't seem very precise. So not the best, I take that back. The original Genesis 3-button pad had a more practical D button, but I'm going to go with GBA SP as the winner.

@BearHunger: The OUYA dpad isn't too bad. You want the worst dpad try the Xbox 360 dpad. Worst dpad ever.

I haven't actually used either one of those in gameplay. (Ouya's was only on a menu.) I'd rank the Gamecube one pretty lowly, personally, partly because of its size and also because of its placement, which is the same as that of these two. I played all the Mega Man games with the analogue stick for those reasons.

Then you sir have never played a fighter on Saturn because you would understand. Plus, Sega=win(just to go all fanboy on you).

No, seriously.
A lot of people hated that one, but I loved it. The clicking sounds as directions were being pressed down felt very satisfying, and it felt like the most tight and precise D-Pad ever made.

I'm pretty okay.
