I used to always say the 360 controller but recently the Switch Pro controller has really impressed me. It just fits perfectly in my hands and it so comfortable to hold it shocks me.

Honestly, these days... Wii U Gamepad! I use it for all my games and emulators (except Wii games that can't obvs) and i love the fact i can play and watch tv at the same time.

All time favourite though.... SNES. Purely for nostalgia!

GC and Xbox One. I don't even have an Xbox, but I have 2 controllers that I use with adapters to let me play on the PS4, Switch, and even PS2 (making it wireless, works great!)

This should be a poll.

My favourite one is Gamecube for it's versatility.
As for looks it's got to be the SNES controller.

Hori Digital SNES controller for Gamecube/Wii has got to be my favourite ever.

My all-time favorite are the NGC (wired) & the Wavebird controllers. They are very confortable to hold and use. I even use them on my computer to play emulators, no other can compare to them.

Actually, it doesnt matters. Those controllers are for the reason. For me, those are perfect for an Emulators to match.

For me, PS3/PS2/PS1 Emulators then i used PS4 controller. For N64 and Nintendo Switch Emulators, I used Nintendo Switch controller.. maybe Dolphin emulator.. Hadn't tried it, thought.

Again, those controllers are meant to be for some reason to use.

I concur with JuanMena.

Anyways, right now, it's a toss up between the PS5 and the Xbox One Controller. I might toss in the Sega Saturn dual analog controller by Retro-bit, but they haven't mentioned much about it after someone asked about it on a Reddit post and they gave a very customer service-esque response to the question.

Original Xbox Controller S
Madkatz Wireless Xbox
PS2 Dual Shock 2 (I prefer it over the later versions for various reasons)

A big part of why the above are my favorites is they have awesome D-pads, not too small or mushy and very precise. This suits my needs as a mostly retro gamer. I think the best D-pad of all time was the first PS1 controller, but the overall feel wasn't as nice as the Dual Shock 2.

    SuperFX chips I would think just too much for the PSP to emulate

    Not if you're an expert coder
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think the one for Doom on the SNES was 66Mhz by itself and then the SNES main CPU and it's sound processor was pretty nice.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Expert all you want, typically even highly optimized emulation code requires like 4X the speed. PSP is nice but not that nice.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    Sounds like soldering job about chips. Pass on my end.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    Now if chips were just a plug n play thing, then thumbs up
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Now don't get me wrong lots of SNES games would run flawless on the PSP, but there is a handful that probably never will
