    Well I've been really into my n64 for about a month now, and I've been using this really crappy 1st controller with a loose analogue stick and an R button that sticks (in other words I'm fucked when I try to play smash bros), and before I buy a new first party controller, I'm wondering if there are any reliable 3rd party ones that will be better suited.
    I'm hoping for one without three prongs (like any other controller), so it isn't awkward to play some games that require the D-pad, the Stick, and the Buttons. Of course, I want it to be reliable, and turbo is a nice feature, but I don't need it.
    If there is an N64 controller redesigned into a GCN controller anywhere? That would be amazing [​IMG]
    But yeah link me up
    Also if somebody has an awesome mod that they are willing to sell, I'll consider it if it's a reasonable price.

    Most 3rd party controllers SUCK!
    None I have seen actually do a good redesign instead just doing that awkward original controller shape.

    I have one of them Competition Pro ones. Mine is grey though , not blue. Still have the box for it as well , think it came free with the N64. The shoulder buttons are split into two for some reason and are made of a horrible rubber , it's a terrible pad [​IMG].

    Don't think it's that much bigger than an official pad , I think the pic is deceiving. Long time since I've had my one out though , so not sure. Might have to go have a look tomorrow as I'm curious now [​IMG].

    Well curiosity got the better of me,I had to go check. Definitely not that much bigger than a Nintendo one.

    The illusion is shattered [​IMG]

    Controller still sucks though , the double l and r buttons are the turbo ones. Can't believe someone though that was a good idea.

    I'll combine them both into Nunchaku [​IMG]

    That would at least give a concussion [​IMG]

    There's one called the boomerang that's nothing like the regular Nintendo one.

    I can't speak for whether it sucks or what since I never used it. I just remembered it from magazine ads back in the day and googled for an image.

    That looks like a weapon. It also looks like the ps3 controller that everyone had anticipated only to get shitted/shat on by Sony.

    Everyone I had talked to hated the new design, it was best that Sony canned the idea because that controller would have been shit and then Sony would have even more pissed off fan boys.

    I think sony only used this controller when playing N64 games and decided to steal it for the PS3 [​IMG]
