Best retro controllers out there right now?

I'm mainly playing SNES titles right now, but I'm open to stuff for Megadrive, N64, and NES as well.
>>
>>5289546
If n64 you need a stick, the ibuffalo BSGP1601BK is okay if you want a 1 controller for the bunch. If You're willing to skip n64 the 8bitdo is coming out with a nice looking one that'll cover 6-button genesis without requiring you to map some to shoulder buttons.

The WiiU pro controllers make for pretty sweet multipurpose emulation pads. God-tier d-pad on that thing. Work as well as a 360 pad for modern vidya too. Only negative are the digital triggers but that's not going to matter much for the consoles you listed.

Imo the best solution (though not the cheapest or most convenient one) is to buy one of those recent lagless mass console adaptors and just use all of the native controllers. Anything else feels like a compromise

The hardest one is N64 because fuck finding a decent condition one isn't easy. There's really nice metal analog sticks mods but the sticks themselves are more expensive than a console + controller + some games. It's ridiculous

I don't get this reasoning, why is that people issue with the game? Did no one play March of The Black Queen? It was the same way.

Because it's simply boring and at that point I can't help but compare the Ogre Battle games to RTS titles that also have automated battles but have depth in the strategic department that Ogre Battle doesn't.
>>
>>5289865
I don't really find any less boring that some JRPG that makes you sift through menus for any random encounter. I guess you're free to think it's boring, I don't, sure the battles could be a little faster but I'm rather fond of Ogre Battle's unit management.
>>

started gaming with a commodore 64 in the mid '80s, keep projecting though :-)
>>
>>5289839
>why is that people issue with the game?
Because the other aspects of the game such as the unit management and movement lack depth, which leaves the game feeling lacking. I don't have a problem with automated battles in and of themselves, but the game needs some other level of engagement that makes me still feel just as involved.

So going back on track, is the 8bitdo any good?
>>
>>5289931
I feel like the game, along with a chock full of other older games had a lot of exploitable mechanics like training and stuff. But I wouldn't really say the game really lacks depth, there's a whole lot you have to consider about the entire management of your army. All of your units have tons of classes they can become, you also to have to manage their alignment and unlike a lot of other jrpgs you actually make choices that matter. I guess when you boil the game just down to the combat maybe it isn't very complex and could use a formula change (which is great because the Ogre Battle Saga experimented with Luct) but it's still an overall cool experience. I still hold by this game not being "shit". It was pretty different for its time too.

I'm really sorry for derailing the thread with Ogre Battle discussion, I also apologize on behalf of these buffoons arguing about the commodore 64 or whatever, I heard 8bitdo is actually very high quality, it's exactly purely retro though. I've heard of people getting defective controllers, but the actual product is very well put together.

You realize you can use PS/2 and USB controllers with emulators... right? Your "anyone that prefers keyboard = emukid" argument makes no sense.

Also, some consoles even offered keyboards as peripherals, as pic related shows. I owned one with a mouse back in the day to play Q3A and Typing of the Dead.

Which ones?

A PS3 controller to anything retro would be perfect.

Since it would be compatible with everything thanks to it pressure sensitive buttons.

For N64 Kitsch-bent is not producing sticks anymore, but there's a guy that developed a brass gear, you can use that. You can print a stick in his store too. It's about 30 dollars. The brass gears wont deteriorate, but you can't use steel stick with it or else it will.

It's really good, very similar build quality to the originals.

The PSX has three face buttons, however there are another six under the flap at the bottom. The PSX controller has the same number as a standard PS2 controller. It's /vr/ legal predecessor had many types of controllers with varying numbers of buttons

There are three buttons on the face of a PSX. Google a picture and look for yourself.

>>5293703
At the bottom of the face of the PSX is a flap that opens up to provide access to the memory card slots and other connectors as well as six more buttons. Google a picture or RTFM.

Oh god is that the 4.99 controller on eBay?
I got two of those, they work okay but the d-pad feels like your pressing against a rubber ball. The cables are a lot thinner but other than that it works great as a backup controller (I have two original controllers so I have two cheap controllers for Bomberman and Secret of Mana) or one to bring to a sleepover/friend's house.

Also, forgot to mention the PS3 controller despite feeling good is not very durable. Might have a hard time finding one that's in good shape.
>>
>>5299027

If you're on a budget, the 360 controller is a great option. You can pretty easily find 4 of them for like $35-$40. Pretty good considering most of these other options will run you that much just for ONE controller.

The negative is that the d-pad truly is unusable, they take batteries, and having to buy Xbox's wireless 360 dongle for them.

don't forget the xbox elite controller. Maybe the best controller I've ever felt
>>
>>5299053

It's really really expensive though, but yeah it's good and it actually has a much better d-pad.

If you fucking hate messing around with drivers it's also a dream, if that maters to you. I fell for the "Wii U Pro" and PS3 controller memes years ago, and every time setting them up was a fucking headache.

I pretty much only use Xbox One controllers and classic SNES style pads now, depending on what games I'm playing. They just work, no nonsense, don't even have to set up controls in Retroarch.
