    Well, I've searched around. I looked at ebay and I found some third party ones but I heard that the buttons aren't great. I live in Canada, so any websites recommended by people who've purchased from that website before is appreciated. It's rare to find the official nintendo snes controller so I have no choice but to go with third party controllers.

    I'm buying the controllers for my aunts and grandma. They all own a snes and play it often.. so much that their controllers don't work properly (the left button is dead, and the right button must be pushed hard to function) Super Mario bros, tetris, and dr. mario is what they love. So.. any suggestions? I'm probably gonna buy 4.

    Unless.. I can fix the controllers?

    Is there a Value Village near by? Check out any thrift store you can find. I just found a SNES controller at the Value Village in Victoria last week for $5.

    Wow Value Village? I should look in there sometime.

    They have any other gadgets of the like?
