    I miss Super Mario Bros. on good ol' SNES!

  3. jessica duran    

    I'm just play zumbA I kill it!

  4. Stephanie Straw    

    +Roger Salazar Ganoza you spelled success wrong.

    Personal opinions are just that, but billions of people disagree with you.

  5. Martin Goudie    

    1st Xbox controller: fail.

  6. Martin Goudie    

    Well they've gone wireless and added L3 and R3 click buttons to the thumb sticks.

  7. Amanda Blain    

    Funny how Sony has not changed no?

  8. Ben Lang    

    360 has the best controller hands-down (see what I did there?). It fits most comfortably in the hand and has the best sticks and triggers for FPS games.

    Sony's Dualshock 3 doesn't compete in the sticks/triggers/comfort department but it has some novel features like pressure sensitive buttons and 'sixaxis' motion control. Unfortunately these haven't been put to particularly good use.

    The Wiimote is easily the worse of the bunch with a non-ergonomic design that requires you to rotate your hand into an uncomfortable position while pointing it at the TV; the only time that it actually points at the TV naturally if if your arms are at your sides. You can rotate it sideways to use the D-pad as a basic gamepad (reminiscent of original Nintendo), but the B button becomes terribly strange to press with this hold.

    Thoughts, +Techni Myoko?

  9. Glyn Myers    

    The PS pad is quite nice ergonomically. That said it was originally designed for Nintendo, until Sony fell out with them.

  10. Martin Goudie    

    All a matter of opinion Ben, Sony's controller is miles ahead when it comes to games that use the d pad such as fighting games which I'm a fan of. The 360 d pad is woeful.

  11. Tracy Davren    

    I wouldn't want it to change been using the same control pad for since my teenage years with sony and I am now 32. I am most confused when I do happen to pick up an x box controller.

  12. Mike G    

    Sony controller: why mess with perfection?

  13. Sarah Franklin    

    Love the nintendo wii remotes. Especially when I am playing Skyward Sword and can hold the remote as if I am holding an actual sword, slashing back and forth.. How more epic can it get?

  14. Martin Goudie    

    Exactly Mike, they are very comfortable to use and feel familiar after a short time using 1.

  15. jorge perez    

    Need the first ps control without joys

  16. Mike G    

    Best PC controller: Microsoft Sidewinder Dual Strike…unfortunately the D-pad kept breaking.

  17. Techni Myoko    

    +Martin Goudie the first dualshock had L3/R3. the first XBOX controller was awesome.

    +Glyn Myers no, dual shock was not designed for Nintendo. playstation | neotechni was

    +Amanda Blain Sony's went through lots of change. Theirs was the first to get ergonomic handles, Sony brought us dual analog, clickable thumbsticks
    The first dual analog controller had longer handles, concave thumbsticks, dual shock was shorter and convex, had rumble built in
    DS2 brought us all analog buttons
    DS3/SIXAXIS brought us bluetooth, USB charging, USB HID compliance, the convex triggers.

  18. Teddy Abdelmalik    

    Sony Dualshock 3 is for me definitively the best pad ever.
    It is lightweight, very easy to handle and all buttons accessible without any pb.
    I loved the N 64 pad too, it was really great :)

  19. C.A. Simmons    

    It's not broke but not getting much better.
    Gotta love those improvements.
    Too many risks. Loyal following. Never appealed to me.

  20. Yassin Madwin    

    Don't change a winning team , PS is still the best

  21. Martin Goudie    

    The 1st Xbox controller was a massive hulking piece of poo that made games virtually unplayable so a difference of opinion there Techni.

  22. Mike G    

    I only have one complaint with Sony controller: Thumb fatigue when using D-pad for hours on end.

  23. John Mayson    

    So when so the various companies start suing each other for copying controllers?

  24. Martin Goudie    

    Only a yank would bring something like that up.

  25. Chas Malloy    

    Are you in for HHHIRL Thursday?

  26. Cameron Lee Crowhurst    

    Wii controller has so much potential Take away the motion controlls and it's a very comfortable, versatile controller. You can itch your freaking face whilst playing. With conventional controllers, that requires removing one hand from the controller.

  27. Ricardo Villanueva    

    All the 3 consoles are great, the ones of the past… and future… If you love games, you play everything…

  28. John Mayson    

    +Martin Goudie Sadly it's the state of our legal system. :-(

  29. Emi Ellswo    

    video game fry ur brains. im not kidding.

  30. Lee Thomas    

    I had a PS3 until just over a year ago and when I swapped for a 360 the first thing I noticed was how much more comfortable and easier to use the 360 pad is, I also played much better online FPS games with the 360 pad. Nintendo are always poshing the boundaries with some aspect of their console design, which despite being occasionaly risky keeps pushing gaming technology forward. Microsoft are now considering having some kind of tablet with their next console, essentially copying Nintendo's idea.

  31. Scott Rooney    

    360 controller is like driving a 458 Italia while the DS3 is like going to your kids soccer game in a volvo.

  32. Ivan Yglesia    

    PlayStation is the best with the slightest changes.

  33. John Michaels    

    Xbox Fans Unite!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. logan sander    

    dude playstation is suckey….

  35. Ivan Yglesia    

    lol never im a proud xbox 360 owner own 3 but still love playstation more since is the best

  36. Robert Armstrong    

    I love the PlayStation controller and I hope they keep the same controller for the PS4.

  37. Ivan Bigelow    

    I have to say the 360 controller is the most comfortable to me.

  38. John Gurga    

    Playstation > Nintendo > Sega > Colecovision > Atari > 3D0 > XBox

  39. Ivan Yglesia    

    I own every PlayStation and Every Xbox model plys dreamcast. started playing in 1998 almsot 14 years with gaming.

  40. James Wake    

    Awesome! I personally think the 360 controller is the most comfortable. I use it with my PC and my 360.

  41. John Gurga    

    +Ivan Yglesia Nice, I have had almost every console since Nintendo Entertainment System. I have had the old Pong system and then the Colecovision then moved on to NES then Sega Genesis, Game Boy, Game Gear, Panasonic 3D0, Atari Jaguar, PSOne, PS2, PS3, Nintendo 64, Sega CD, Sega 32x, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii. Only thing missing is the paltry XBox and not planning on getting one soon, not even gonig to get the XBox Dung, oops I mean Durango lol. I will plan on getting the Orbis and the Wii U, if the Wii U does look good and impress me.

  42. Raqeeb Lewis    

    dude xbox 360 is the best if you look playstation controlllers they never really changed and nintentodos controllers are just weird

  43. Josh Fisher    

    personally i loved the original xbox controller, dreamcast controller also rocked. never liked any of the ps controllers

  44. John Gurga    

    +Raqeeb Lewis The reason why the Playstation controller never really change much cuz it's the best design for all of the controllers ever! The xbox controller is very bulky and uncomfortable. I swear when I picked one up at a local Best Buy at a kiosk, it almost gave me carpal tunnel syndrome after 5 minutes of game time… Screw the xbox, most ridiculous design ever! Even the Nintendo 64's controller is better than the xbox's!

  45. Jordan Gill    

    I love my Video games, for they are still the one thing in the media that can uphold some kind of major and innovative creativity. Hell they have the advantage of being able to make a 50 Hour Movie that you can Play (Mostly.)

  46. Lily Crisp    

    I like ASDWX and C for Crouch.

  47. donald hakala    

    Glad you have an open mind Amanda…all consoles have thier good qualities

  48. Scott Murff    

    What about the Wii U controller?

  49. Rob Mitchell    

    Me too I'll. Play them with a fox
    I'll play them straight. Out of the box
    I'll. Play them while receiving. Spam
    and yes even when. I'm. Eating. Ham!

  50. donald hakala    

    Good point Scott…also needs Playstation Move and Kinect to be up to date…

  51. Brandon Rodriguez    

    what's the middle remote for the xbox

  52. haley grace    

    i have another one :Try new thing to to to*stops typing*nvm i don't have another one

  53. Phil Kalata    

    In the context of the Wii and body mechanics of its play (pointing at screen, etc.) the Wiimote works wonderfully. Yet I can't help but be sad that the 360 controller isn't more like the Sony one because Sony has achieved damn near perfection with that style for traditional handheld controllers.

  54. Troy Thompson    

    I used to think the N64 controller was the bees knees lol when it came out, but I played Goldeneye just the other day and the controller is atrocious, don't mind the game cube controller though, great for Mario Kart and still passable for first person shooters I played Return to Castle Wolfenstein on game cube, but when the Xbox came out with real trigger buttons I was sold, I do have large hands and find the playstation controller too small, the xbox revision controller was perfect to hold for me, and now the 360 has the the 2 shoulder buttons
    Its awesome, but I only play first person shooters and the odd racing game, my only complaint about xbox, the digital pad, it sucks big time. As I don't really use it, so it don't bother me, but in the past when I played excessive amounts of 2d fighting games like the early mortal kombats and streetfighter and side scrolling shooting games like R-type it was snes and then ps1 all the way, but never like playstation for first person shooter, I hate the analogue sticks on them

  55. Noah kelln    

    ehh you know xbox controllers are a bit better because you have better grip on it

  56. Michael Conrad    

    The Xbox fattie wasn't too bad, actually. Very similar to the Dreamcast controller. The PS3 controller was a nice controller in the early days, but it is just terrible for FPS games. The 360 controller is awesome.

  57. Noah kelln    

    yah i agree
    i played PS2 and alot of third person shooters nut FPS now suck

  58. Phil Gagne    

    Wouldn't change any thing. I Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft for what they do to their system. Having difference unique system is the best way to go, this way you don't get bored of the same thing over and over again from one system.

  59. Javier Aviles    

    Ahh that gray PS controller takes me back to the days of playing Resident Evil 1 & Final Fantasy 7..

  60. Mark McLaughlin    

    Xbox 360 controller is easily the best. For comfort, build quality and ease of use. Need proof ? Just ask the military

  61. Pocket Raphael    

    +Amanda Blain they did try to make a minor change by removing the rumble feature lol

  62. ryan guy    

    i like xbox controller better in fact i like xbox better xbox just confort my hands better

  63. Ami Chan    

    i'm a girl into games and this thing's just awesome

  64. Nellie Hund    

    Personally old fashion is hotter ;)

  65. Maya McGill    

    i looove video games and im a girl i love any game that involes fighting monsters

  66. Kerry Arrant    

    OK this is E volution. I love this shot:} Ditto for the awe of Invention.

  67. Mark Micallef    

    Oh Maya McGill, can you say Diablo III?

  68. todd solis    

    I'm right there with you…

  69. Toriano Franklin    

    Since we taking it bad…..contra….. And Bad Dudes!

  70. GhaV jGRite    

    Okay now where's the PC evolution (just kidding we know that's up to the owner of the PC).

  71. Derek Pratt    

    PS and X-Box are great, and Gamecube controls are okay, but whoever thought up the Wii wands needs to be slapped. Don't even get me started on the Kinect, which I have but never use. Big waste of $.

  72. Josh Saunders    

    wtf are you on about +Derek Pratt the wii is incredible, even just for analogue button control, love playing donkey kong with my hands apart, you can relax so much more on the couch

  73. Dustin Jones    

    Illustrating the reason why Nintendo is the only console maker I have any respect for. Sony and Microsoft are just in an arms race to see how much useless shit they can cram into the console or completely stealing Nintendo's ideas.

  74. Josh Saunders    

    Nintendo is the only real video game company to me, they have been making games for 100 years, from the days of card games to today.
    Microsoft make operationg systems and business software.. Sony make tv's and speakers…

  75. Simeon Currie    

    Need to play 2k12 right now cause they cheating for MIAMI

  76. Derek Pratt    

    +Josh Saunders My kids love the Wii and Kinect, but I prefer old school controls. I never liked steering wheels attachments either. Rock Star instruments are very cool, but I can only play the drums. LOL! To each their own.
    You want the worst controls ever, check out Intellivision. Looked like a cell phone from 1995 with a touch pad at the bottom.

  77. Joe Glsty    

    I bet gamers get awesome vibs from these gadgets :))

  78. Josh Saunders    

    +Derek Pratt have you played new super mario brothers? it doesnt get much old school than that, two buttons and a D pad, you just play the wiimote on its side like the original NES controller :)
    I love it. classic side scroller.

  79. tina narak    

    I ever had played "Taken ",battle game.
    Like it ^___^
    I think that joy stick is designed to play the battle game,sometime the PS game been pulled follow the joystick I tried to control game jumping , hahahaha ^^

  80. Xan Dekle    

    i think "Taken" is awesome and has great graphics.

  81. Shawn Collins    

    I love the feel of the 360 controller. And with the mini keyboard to boot!

  82. Vinoth Ragunathan    

    Super Nintendo > PlayStation 4 > XBOX 720

  83. Prime Haitian    

    I love my xbox…#madden 12 online is the best

  84. Marco Maron    

    All hail Super Nintendo!

  85. Daniel Pito    

    I´m like the nintento 64

  86. Manny Garcia    

    You forgot to mention that the Xbox Kinect is now without a controller

  87. Cameron Walker    

    Which one is out of place? (Nintendo)

  88. Dexter Dunbar    

    Lets make shoulder buttons
    Lets make analog sticks
    Lets make rumble feedback
    Lets make a freemotion gyro control.

    Double that
    Double that
    Double that
    Double that

    I prefer to move forward. So thankfully I have.Nintendo for gameplay/innovation. For the rest of my needs I have my Steam PC, which makes your horsepower consoles look like Fisher Price toys.

  89. Troy Saunders    

    Go the xbox!!!! Fits better in hand ;)

  90. Anthony Catullo    

    play station has always been elite in my opinion
    (I really cant find ANYTHING wrong with it…)

  91. moses kazibwe    

    hi amanda is me moses do like video games

  92. Bang Bokier    

    Playstation controller is the best fit for me.

  93. Ivy Norman    

    Hahaha PS so cool they've never had to chang

  94. Andrew Bytheway    

    I like books. They never change.

  95. Neal Beer    

    IMHO, the Nintendo GameCube controller is one of the better controllers of late. I just like how it conforms to my hand.

  96. Jeremy Bland    

    PS1 was and still is amazing.

  97. Bruce Williams    

    I just hope these companies/designers are not making ad hoc decisions for there own personal gains, without public input.

  98. Rachel Hiles    

    I don't know what I would do without video games! :)

  99. Vlad Taushanov    

    You gotta admit, though – the 360 controller is the best controller ever designed!

  100. Anthony Nguyen    

    +Vlad Taushanov very true! and its the most comfortable to use!

  101. tina narak    

    +Xan Dekle
    I am glad that you like it too ^__^

  102. Scott Bazeley    

    Playstation owners don't like change and complain when Sony try something new.
    Remember the boomerang controller?

  103. Dennis Jakobsen    

    Well, they are targeting a certain demographic. Nintendo will most likely be had by a new generation of gamers, not acustomed to any previous controller and will adapt quickly to any new shape or form, whereas the playstation is an expensive toy for seasoned gamers and we all know "old people" fear change :) That said, i would love to see the ps controller a bit larger and sturdier, something between the xbox and ps in size.

  104. Glyn Myers    

    +Scott Bazeley being a current PlayStation owner, I obviously love their pad. That said, I used to think the SNES pad was the best thing since unsliced bread, and I love change when it's warranted. I'm pretty sure the Boomerang controller was just a demo pad that never made it to production anyway.

  105. Mohamed Blili    

    I LOVE Playstation so as You

  106. Edwin Castillo    

    +Dexter Dunbar They've each done bits of innovation on their own. You DO know Nintendo was not first to introduce an analog stick on the controller, do you? And that Sony was the first to venture into motion based games? How about moving to disc based media, something that took Nintendo several years to understand?

  107. Adriana Delgado    

    I've played every single one of these. This is my childhood. Although the Sega control is missing lol

  108. Hassan Eleshin    

    i like to play ps2 and i love using wireless pad

  109. Ian McNeill    

    Played them all, Love em all, Gotta catch em all (Poke'mon) <.< What?? lol

  110. Chad Chase    

    wheres the super nintendo and sega?

  111. Chad Chase    

    i seriously played it at my grandmas and thought it was better than any games combined except skyrim

  112. Scott Bazeley    

    +Glyn Myers The boomerang was scrapped because people moaned about how stupid it looked. Personally I think the 360 controller is one of the best. Loved the SNES controller at the time, still do. I've still got my SNES hooked up to my TV. The Atari Jaguar controller was one of the worst.

  113. Abhi Singh    

    +Amanda Blain I'll do you one better, keyboards! PC gamers will rule the earth.

  114. Gary Scranton    


  115. Daniel J.W.    

    Are you trying to call the nintendo controllers bad, cuz look at playstation designs, same design for years now, i mean come on change it for once!

  116. Dexter Dunbar    

    PlayStation owner: "Don't change the controls. We want horsepower and a lot of it"

    PC gamer: "You are cute"

  117. uzair munir    

    Nintendo nd ps. Got design nd control both. :)

  118. Chanelle Nottle    

    Awesome and sooooooooo true

  119. Victor Salcido
