Personally, I think he's a whiner; I never suffered anything like the pain he describes. (He even bashed the SNES controller as being nearly as painful. I remember that thing handling like a dream!)

But it's an amusing read.

Hahaha the best bit is when he speaks about the d-pad.

" It’s something that, if you were to see it in a videogame, you would instinctively run into the next screen to get away from."

That made me laugh outloud. Pure gold.

Well I still like the NES controller even today, never liked the d-pad on any Nintendo system though, other than that I thought they where all good controllers.

I never did care for the shape of the NES controller. Never felt that good in my hands.

My only real problems were the wire getting detached internally (that is to say, the cord was still physically attached to the controller, but without putting pressure on it it wouldn't hit its contacts inside the controller) and the buttons dying. I probably went through a dozen NES controllers, without exaggerating.

Didn't have either of those problems with the SNES...pretty sure I was able to keep the original controllers for the life of the unit.

I never suffered with the NES controller. It did fit in the hands perfectly. I think that the only "bad" controller from Nintendo was the N64 one and it was better than the horrible pad of the PSOne.
