name a shittier controller than this
>simple, solid, cheap, just werks™ pad
what's wrong with it, shitlord? not enough buttons?
>dead zones are awful
I got one and it works fine
3rd party 360 controller. I bought two of them. When playing Dungeon Siege 3, me an my friend both couldn't run in two directions because the controllers weren't designed to go far enough into those corners. We had to sand down the inside of the joystick area to make it work.
That was a month ago. Now they've both broken completely in multiple ways.
literally what the fuck were they thinking with this, I mean I love nintendo but holy fuck
which fucking game requires you to do circles with the analog stick to control a car
the joystick was awful and worked significantly less efficient after some hours, also the fact it only had one stick but still required 2 different ways of holding it in order to be able to operate all the buttons makes it one of the worst designed controllers ever
wanna go m8? we can do this all night
It's pretty bad for games like, say, Goldeneye. But it works well for most games.
>required 2 different ways of holding it in order to be able to operate all the buttons
You never needed to operate all the buttons, though. Have you played an N64 game, or did you believe the meme with the 3-handed kid?
N64 controller by far. Fucking Nintendo threw us a surprise when they gave Metriod to a random no-name western dev, but giving the controller design to Poseidon was the shittiest idea ever.
try playing a game that actually uses it intensely
Exactly, dipshit. The N64 controller was an innovation and a gamble, because no console controller had done the stick + D-pad before. There was no standard for controllers like we see today, dumbass.
Well they had three grips and that didn't negatively affect my playstyle in any way what so ever. If your arguing it's redundancy go right ahead but it being redundant doesn't make it bad.
not even baiting
>Shitty small analog stick
>only one terrible bumper
>triggers feel extremely cheap
>retarded face button placement and sizes
the only thing playable with this was melee
>inb4 underage faggots who had a gamecube as first console
yeah but look at modern controllers. does that look like an idea that was hard to come up with? the n64 controller is more like two controllers forced into one and innovation or not, its just not good
it's the Dual Action
windows chose the wrong image
>Shitty small analog stick
the size is correct.
>only one terrible bumper
wshat is bumper?
>triggers feel extremely cheap
they are precise and of good quality don't confuse your feels with reality please
>retarded face button placement and sizes
perfect for many game. One major button and one minor. And two additional buttons. That placement was genius.
Is this controller any good?
I saw a few in a bargain bin a awhile back, they're probably still there
Yes it is quite shitty
>bought it for $5 off amazon
>used it to play racing games
>after 30 minutes my fingers started hurting from the odd shape of the controller
Its like the L and R triggers are just in a weird spot i cant use this controller for more than an hour
There was no joystick - you had to move it like a mouse somewhat, despite being on sticky pads.
The sega saturn 3d controller was much the same way. Moving in a 3d world while controlling a camera wasn't established. PS1 controllers didn't have analog sticks at all for a long time.
The 64 controller is very well designed when you actually play the games that were made with it in mind.
Not even worth it for this bait. Or you're just retarded. Nintendo has yet to make a shit controller.
nintendo has yet to make a good controller. seriously I replayed all the games I liked on emulators with an xbox 360 controller and it worked way better though the games were meant for a different pad
Was anyone else her completely opposed to having to use the stick? My systems were snes>one of the segas (i did have the huge arcade stick controllers)>ps>and then n64
Up until the ps no game forced me to use a stick and I hated that shit at first I was all d pad. Was I alone?
That's what I was thinking the plastic quality seems decent which is a usual indication of the controller quality in general.
I had one of these off brand controllers for my gamecube, the thing is actually durable as hell and was at a point COMPLETELY soaked in coke at a birthday party and only needed a wipe down I still use it, and it works better than my old wavebird
>seriously I replayed all the games I liked on emulators with an xbox 360 controller and it worked way better though the games were meant for a different pad
Mine work as well as they did back in the day on real hardware. I don't like the xbox controllers.
Never had a wii. Don't like the wii controller from the short time I played it but I wouldn't call it bad.The game pad on the wii u is one of my favorite controllers of all time.
The newest logitech model that uses the 360 colors and YXBA for the buttons is actually pretty decent, it's just not the most durable thing in the world.
Still, it lets me play DaS without having to configure 3rd party programs.
just look at this double dildo disgrace
>the only thing playable with this was melee
I would have let your post go had you not posted this line.
You don't get it, the face buttons are positioned in such a way that a thumb tilt allows for a button press, rather than a lift. It's more ergonomic and allows for quicker action in my opinion. However the c stick does suck, and the d-pad is rancid as well. Analog stick is comfy though.
>Square gates makes it 8-directions only.
are you actually fucking retarded?
>brother played the shit out of the Tony Hawk games
>always used dpad for precision
>mfw he 100%'d 3,4, and THUG
for the millionth time
you've got two perpendicular axes, left to right and up to down
you can still do circles with a square gate
a circle gate either limits your movements or adds a dead zone (or both, if some faggot thinks an averaged out round gate is a compromise)
>spinning a stick with a square gate
>creates a circle
Dumbest shit I read all month. Thanks.
are you playing with your feet?
do you have no dexterity at all?
are your thumbs completely spastic?
>you've got two perpendicular axes, left to right and up to down
>you can still do circles with a square gate
It's not that you cant do them, moron
It's that it's shit. The equivalent of a car running on square wheels
Had one of these wireless controllers for the gamecube.
It had a really good design imo and was super comfy but it was glitchy as all hell and ran on AAAs
Is that bad? Unless the D-pad have hard to press diagonals, it looks pretty much like an ideal controller.
>if you don't touch the gates
So if I don't use the full axis it's good? Wow man I wonder why square gates never caught on!
>Unless the D-pad have hard to press diagonals
It looks like that's the only problem with it
which is not a big problem because it has 2 analogs, but yeah
I would like to have one of those
>the analog sticks are exclusively for doing circles with it
THPS is far superior with d pad. It let's you pull off combos and specials much easier.
100% THPS 1 through american wasteland on PS2, fun games, though not all that challenging.
Because those came out after 3d was proved to be a success and after the N64 pioneered the use of both joysicks and d-pads
>You drove the first car with a stick, what the fuck were they thinking? All modern cars have a wheel, why didn't they use a wheel?
This is how the analogs from my Xbox controller rests. It's horrible for emulation of something like GameCube games because of how loose it is, I don't understand how /v/ likes it so much.
Why aren't you using the Thrustmaster Fragmaster from Thrustmaster? GUARANTEED to get you more frags in your next deathmatch. Says right there on the box.
>OnLive sold it's design to Amazon
The Onlive one is much more sturdy from experience. The buttons on the Amazon version are awful and get stuck
Also, the OnLive controll has an amazing D-pad and nice easy to press triggers. Amazon does not.
I know your pain, restoring the default settings solves my problem.
I liked it, was really sad when the buttons started dying out.
The newer models(F310 and so on) are absolutely horrible though. R2/L2 were made into fucking triggers instead of just being buttons, and they changed the shape of the controller because of this. Now it's incredibly uncomfortable to press R2/L2 especially for longer periods of time and also if you need to be fast at it. The only advantage the newer models have over the old one is the switch for DirectInput and XInput.
Because that's a prototype, and now the controller is a standard pad with trackpads instead of analog sticks.
>Feels good not being a mainstream poorfag.
Lel you're just retarded just like I thought.
You should pay a visit to a psychiatrist soon, m8. I hope they'll have a playstation console in the hospital for people like you but seeing as you're probably gonna be not the only one there they actually might.
it´s beyond me how anyone seriously uses this, the mouse may be more precise thaa a stick but that´s all usless because it won´t go back in its default postion by itself also walking with WASD is a disgrace for gaming it´s like a retarded stick that only knows 8 directions and is a pain in the ass to operate and takes three! fingers. the thumb that is actually best for pushing buttons is doomed to push nothing but space and if you´re lucky some extra buttons of the mouse, the pinky is the least precise finger of the hand but has to operate shift tab and control. this is controlling at it´s worst.
it's built like shit though, have had mine for like 2 months and the thumbsticks are already starting to peel and the RB button is sticking. I don't drop or mistreat it and always keep it clean.
I've recently been playing Twilight Princess because I never touched it when it first came out because I just assumed it would be broken as fuck with the Wii controler and now I'm thinking about getting a Wii U soon, so I wanted to get back into the swing of it and TBH; the Wii controller isn't actually that bad. The remote and nun-chuck feel a lot more free than a regular game-pad and The octagonal analog stick feels not too bad at all. I'm defiantly liking the Wii remote and nun-chuck a lot more than I remember.
I don't know why they kept the design of the Dualshock after the PS1.
I mean without the analog sticks it's a pretty good SNES controller.
But this form wasn't supposed to exist that long with such shitty placed Sticks.
>the mouse may be more precise thaa a stick but that´s all usless because it won´t go back in its default postion by itself
I'm sorry but since we've already established that you're mentally ill, every argument you make is automatically rendered false and you should seek gelp immediately as well as ask the mods to ban you for your own safety.
I wonder if this was a better controller than the ds3
I really don't get why people bash on Nintendo, they make the best controllers of all video game companies.
>awkward stick placement
Is there any viable third-party alternatives to this piece of shit?
>thinks Nintendo made the power glove
Confirmed born 2000 or later.
But then there's a lot to think about on the business side of the spectrum like
b. formulaic responses
c. extrapecular module stimulators
So as you can see, there's a lot to consider.
>They're not 0-1
nice try but I've actually used that shitty controller
>i played my ps3 once before selling it
not surprised, I only pity you for buying it in the first place
>my first troll on 4chan did youlike it guys!!
>shitting on the n64 controller
it's joystick is pretty bad, otherwise it's great.
there's like two-3 games i can think of on the top of my head that use both the d-pad and the joystick
Sony ponies man. After taking Sony's dick in their ass day in and day out, they've learned to cope with their shit d-pads and tiny/flimsy controllers.
No one here had the original
Now they've fucked with the design even more:
this is getting stupid.
your fat, cheeto stained fingers may aswell slip off the fucking triggers, but they're not 0-1.
I don't know what fucking chinese imitation of a DS3 you used.
I agree with you except for the
>awkward stick placement
Personally, I find it awkward to press the buttons or d-pad when they are at the bottom, while using the joysticks at the bottom seems only slightly weirder than using them at the top.
I'm asking because I already tried this and the face buttons are insensitive and the bumpers push in, not down.
>there's like two-3 games i can think of on the top of my head that use both the d-pad and the joystick
That's because the design of the controller made it counter-intuitive for devs to use both the dpad and stick. If the controllers was actually well-designed, then games could have been designed around both.
>I don't know what fucking chinese imitation of a DS3 you used.
Sony one but it's korean not chinese lol.
They don't even call those "triggers". They're named like any other button lol.
Fuck you OP, that's one of the best controllers I ever used.
It's like, it's responsive, it' sturdy as fuck, It's been seven years and the thing still works as good as the day I bought it. It's missing a few things like rumble and tilt, but I usually turn those things off in games anyway.
Meanwhile, I buy a Dualshock 4 and in three months the thumbsticks come apart, so fuck you OP.
It works perfectly fine, in fact I'm using one right now to play Silent Hill. The only difference I notice is the sticks are a bit tight, and the fact I didn't have to pay 60 bucks for this thing and instead payed a sixth of that.
I'd have to agree:
>Shitty single bumper, claiming to be the best trigger of all time
>Triggers feel nice, but are simply buttons with 3/4 of the press being deadspace
>C-stick. The analogue stick for D-pad directions
>Also having a D-pad
>A/B buttons looked retarded, no impact on usage though
>Handles are godawful, also made for baby hands.
I'm glad that somebody knows how good some of these controllers' dpads are, they kick ass for shmups too. I have this one and it's one of my favorite controllers.
>Controller created for racing games
>Controller marketed for racing games
>Controller sold to people who play racing games
>Retard buys it and complains it's not good for things besides racing games
I play other shit on it too faggot, god hand, whatever I'm emulating, shmups whatever, it works fine, if you really can't use a controller because it has some slight differences from one that's six times more expensive you are casual scum and a faggot.
how the fuck do i play call of duty on that
what a shitty controller
Maybe it's just because I'm a PCfag now, but this is my absolute favorite. Felt like shit when I first used it but when I got used to it, holy shit. Kicks the DualShock's ass. What's great about it is when you need to mash a button. Those big overhangs for the triggers let you jam your index finger up on it and mash the fuck out of the face buttons very comfortably if you run into a tense moment or a shitty QTE or something.
D-pad could use some work, but at least it's better than the 360's.
When is Logitech coming out with a new series? I'd buy it in a hearbeat, even at $50.
>tfw playing emulated katamari damaci with a dj hero controller
shit did not go as planned
Currently using this one, the analogs are a bit stiff, but the D-pad is great for 2D games.
Can we talk about how noone uses the 64 controller properly?
best fucking p4 controller ever. you give it to them, and they either don't want to play, or they give you this fucking amazing look.
so, what do you guys think of those madcatz fightpads?
I am thinking of getting one for my pc
Bought some noname controller for a few euros and I got what I payed for.
>d-pad is absolutely unusable
>analog sticks have a huge deadzone
because it is a promotional image maybe?
They could have learned from the SNES and Playstation controllers but they made this abomination instead.
only fucking games worth playing it have a melee chainsaw. But for anything else
>damn we gotta come up with a controller for that shitty console
>let's just give them a tv remote
>yea lel those retards will buy it anyway
This is a Mega Drive/Genesis game pad right?
I don't even know why I have it.
Fuck no. I wish I had any info on this.
Seems there were different version of this controller. The Dpad is horrible.
I have it too. Yeah, square docks for analogue sticks is retarded, and I think the designer literally just thought "it's different, so it's good!". The D-pad is also about as bad as a 360 controller's. I only use it for DaS, though, so who cares?
Honestly, I really liked that controller for games that used the D-Pad over the stick.
It would've been my Pokemon Stadium controller if it weren't for the fact that the damn expansion port on it is garbage and only reads/writes memory cards and doesn't shit the bed 100% of the time when the Transfer Pack is inserted.
>clearly you've never used a sony controller on a sony console
I did and yell every time, there is a poorly implemented dead zone (except for the glorious GT series), but it came from the game, not from the pad. I know it for sure, because Linux clearly show me the truth about the controller.
>Any playstation controller
So, the Vita?
>More than they pay you for working at mcdonalds!
i dont work for mcdonald you fucking faggot i make more money than you can imagine and i dont have to play with a shitty burger controler made by some local bro in break of playing coll of duty
>Other than the fact the analog stick turns into a razorblade after enough hours of use
Ive been using mine regularly since november and its fine, using it properly and not running sandpaper over the thumbsticks usually helps
You mean this controller OP?
The square analogs are shit yeah but it's lasted longer than any other bootleg controller I've ever bought.
I remember people saying on the internet that blu-rays were rotting when the PS3 was released and it never happened. Those antipropaganda are full of shit.
They do rot, they just don't do it so fast stored in a cool dry place, if they were out in the sun, or just near anything relatively hot like a heater they would deteriorate much faster.
Mine started to go after a bout four months. I wasn't that hard on them either. I'm thinking it was just a bad batch of rubber.
Bought some Bone thumbsticks and swapped them out in about 10 minutes. No ragrets. Fucking love the DS4 now. The Bone sticks are a little longer and they feel more precise to me.
>then you've clearly never played the same game on a different controller
I play only with official PS3 pads, which are precise and have no noticeable dead zone. It's a sin to try to use something non official on any of one my consoles.
wow you guys arent even trying anymore why dont you go and eat a hamburger you fucking fat retard and tell your mom to go suck some cock so you can afford to pay for the shitty xbox live faggot
I don't even have a PS3 but I want to buy it anyways for that exact reason
I mean its videogames and it really turns me on.
So I want to ask if you can actually use it as a sextoy?
Because I've been lied to already. I read a doujin with lewd stuff with a Wii Mote.
I bought it, tried it and it was fucking shit. Biggest buyers remorse for that one.
I was talking about playing with a completely different controller, like a logitech or 360 one. You'd see the insane deadzone that ps3 controller has. And it's not because of games.
but wait there's more
>I'm not lying. Everyone in this thread even claims what I'm saying is true. Play with a different controller and you'll see.
They didn't do objective test. They just notice it because every fucking games on PS3 implement a stupid dead zone (except the glorious GT series). I did the fucking test with linux. Fucking objective test, there is no deadzone. It always came from the game, never from the pad.
Holy shit nigga you don't have to chew on them, you know
are you controlling with your mouth
jesus that nigga trying to stab the shit out of the controller to move
nigga be like "why don't I put in my mouth to shoot some dudes"
crazy motherfucker just letting his dog play Call of Duty
nigga be crazy
>Try one of these bad boys at a friend's place
>Feel great to use, no issue to be found
>Suddenly realize the triggers aren't analog
What the fuck, Nintendo?
Wired 360 controller. Everything except the D-Pad is great
seriously fuck the D-Padand it's basically supported natively by anything that came out after 2005.
They're pretty fucking durable, too. My controller is 6 year old now.
