Poor Alex, nobody gifted him a present this Christmas. Taking matters into his owns hands, our lovely video producer decided to order his own Switch-related gift online and even went to the trouble of wrapping it himself.

What is it, you ask? You should watch the above video to find out. Else, if you really can't spare five minutes, we'll be nice enough to tell you it's a third-party Hycarus controller designed for the Nintendo Switch. For unknown reasons, it closely resembles the PlayStation DualShock 4 gamepad. We don't want to spoil the video for you, but it's really bad. This controller comes with poor button alignment, cheap plastic casing and RGB lights that make it look like a Christmas tree. Probably the best thing about it is the USB cable.

Alex has used a lot of control pads over the years and assures us this one is awful. It's also the worst one he's used with his Nintendo Switch - so yeah, avoid this at all costs. We hope no one here scored one of these in their stockings this Christmas.

Have you tried out this controller? Have you used any other third-party Switch controllers? Tell us below.
