In my opinion the gamecube controller fits really well and has great button placement.

360 for me. and ive used pretty much every controller from a kempston joystick on my spectrum 48k to Atari 2600 to Dreamcast.

Nothing has match the weight, size and ergonomics of the 360 pad imo

Dualshock. When that controller came out, it was like a haven for my hands. I still enjoy using it.

It's a close call between the Gamecube controller and the Xbox S-controller. The former has more logical button placement than the latter, so I choose the Gamecube controller, even though its D-Pad is very unprecise.

As for the DualShock... it's horrid.

The DS3 seems the best controller for multiple game types/genres.

I think the DualShock 3 is the best. I haven't found another controller as incredible, and believe me, I've tried almost all of them.

DualShock 2 was nice for its time, but the xbox 360 controller just trumps it and the new DualShock 3, which is way too light and I dislike its R2/L2 triggers.

I can see why you prefer concave. I still prefer the DualShock 3 though. I guess everyone has opinions.

I dont know for games where you push L3 to run its alot more comfortable.

360 or dual shock, both are great. 360 with ps3 dpad and no battery pack sticking off would be close to perfect.

the 360 controller. The dualshock has been outdated since 2000Nidget
yet the 360 is pretty much a dual shock. only real difference is the stick placement. The fact the dual shock has lasted 3 gens shows how great it is.

lol. the best controller would be gamecube controller with Dualshock analogs, 360 triggers, Dualshock's L1 + R1 buttons, Dualshock's D-Pad, 360's face buttons, and the battery thing you stated.

For most sports games (Ex.:Tiger Woods, Madden, Wii Sports Resort) and games that are heavy on pointing and/or shooting at things (Ex.: Resident Evil 4, Medal of Honor, Metroid Prime, Super Mario Galaxy), the Wii remote is the best controller.

For 3rd-person action games that require many buttons (Ex.: Assassin's Creed, Ninja Gaiden, Metal Gear Solid) and fighting games (Ex.:Street Fighter IV), the Dualshock 3 is the best controller.
