    I played REmake and Zero with Wii controller and nunchuk, it was better feeling than GC controller for me, and GC controller is more comfy than dual shock 3 from Sony. Looks can deceive you, they do all the testing after all so you have to try it and see. 3DS (old) is also OK, although it looks it could cramp your hands easily.

    People have different hands. What feels comfortable for them may not feel comfortable for you. For me the most comfortable controller has to be the Wii U Pro controller. It's light and every button is positioned naturally. I hope the Switch supports it.

    The Pro Controller is also partly transparent so you can see the hardware of it. Nintendo really went the extra mile with this controller! :)

    Yeah, that's the only negative aspect of the Pro Controller but eventually there'll be deals for it.

    How do you know ? Many people experienced it over there said that it is very comfortable because they felt it. You need to wait until you feel it and give your opinion again. :)

    I thought the Joy-Cons with the controller handle would be better but no, it is what it is. You get what you pay for and it's not great, well, not at least for gamers who're used to actual good gaming controllers.

    Are the Joy-Cons totally required for the Switch to function properly or can I use the Pro Controller only?

    If the latter, then I could sell the Joy-Cons and use that for the Pro Controller.

    Well, that's like seeing and playing. Completely different.

    Speak for yourself. The Gameboy SP was incredibly uncomfortable and the original 3DS was as well in my experience.

    If you do, I'd be interested in buying them for a price lower than retail

    I'm pissed that they're so expensive, but they do look good for me as a semi-casual player

    I agree they look wonderful minitatures but the usability is the issue here. Let's say you bought it and then you'd be like "Oh god, why did I buy them?!". :P

    The joycon grip is surprisingly comfortable but smaller in size than I expected. The buttons are also quite small.

    However in my 20 mins playing BOTW I adjusted fast and didn't really think about it after the first 5 mins.

    The only thing I hated about the Switch controllers (minus the Pro) is the lack of a dpad. I understand the reasoning but it will make VC and 2D titles a nightmare.

    Nintendo always makes their controllers with Japanese people in mind and do the testing with Japanese people hence why people with very small hands like the controllers but the majority who doesn't have super tiny hands don't like them.
