Sega killed itself by being an inept company run by retards that lost too much money to even stay in the console business.
Also they followed up the Saturn's god-tier controllers with the shitty Dreamcast controller.

Had this, it was the best I could get and god was that ever a low bar. The lopsided shape (look, it's like an SFC controller but definitely not!) and screw-in thumbstick were cute but less than useful ideas.

Because they took the original Playstation controller and crammed a pair of sticks on it with as little effort as possible.

>DS4 might be one of the best controllers ever though, at least ergonomically.
Because their autistic demand for a touchpad finally forced them to design a new shell.

Where's the stick? Or the dpad?
You know, the actual controlling part of a controller?

It's a controller designed for adult males. Did you think it was a kid's game console or something?

Good idea but tilt control before tilt sensors were accurate.

You twist the wheel for left and right on the joystick and the tiny buttons under the wheel are the dpad buttons. It's for racing games.

Never used it, but thought it was a nice design in that you could flip it for left handed players.

at least it's not 360 levels of bad. it's good enough for menu or inventory navigation

The selection of snes arcade sticks out there is terrible.
The sega one i have doesnt seem bad.
Saturn and Dreamcast ones are nice.
But all the snes ones seem to be ugly and suck.

Upscalers need to adopt this aesthetic, the current ones kinda stomps my nostalgia boner a bit to much.

Sounds logical, like it could work.

But from it being posted in here I assume it's not very good?

>>8520883
This is unironically better than the original N64 controller.

Cope. Sony literally perfected controller design in 1997.

I can understand the Stock N64 controller to a point, but the Gamecube Controller? Yeah no! Look up the Standard Atari 5200 Joystick controller, OG Atari Jaguar controllers, and the CD-I game controllers, then come back.

GameCube controller was fantastic from both an ergonomic and design perspective. I played 90% of my wii games with it just because it felt so much better
