I've been trying to find good quality N64-like and GameCube-like USB controllers.

Specifically an N64-like controller with built-in rumble and an upgraded stick that won't get ground into dust, and a GameCube controller with rumble and actual analog+digital dual-stage triggers.
Apparently those are too much to ask for.

N64 looks like it might be covered if/when RetroFighters ever makes a USB variant of the Brawler64 with rumble, although I wouldn't mind a classic 3-handled controller either.

I'm aware of the Wii U USB adapter and compatibles for GameCube, but I missed the last wave of real controllers, and it appears everything has hard-shifted to native Switch controllers with their lack of real triggers.
I refuse to pay scalper prices for the real ones, and I don't trust the plugs of any no-name third party ones to not shatter. I'm not looking for melee-enthusiast details, just something that won't break after 2 uses and is reasonable quality.

I'd much prefer a native USB XInput controllers over having to use adapters if possible.

Honestly RetroFighters controller and the Mayflash N64 controller adapter is probably the best way to play N64 games on PC personally.

The controller is amazing, and after calibrating the controller through Windows Controllers it works perfectly!

I'm pretty much taken care of for SNES/PS-like controllers at the moment, and I should be taken care of for a Genesis/Saturn-like controller shortly, so they don't seem to have much to offer me unfortunately.
