Post Best Gamepad for multiple emulators!!
I use the saitek P880 for running zsnes, project 64, kega fusion, mame, fce ultra, visualboyadvance, and also my computer games! I've had it for a while and I dunno if it's still available but there are two other gamepads that are almost identical to it, which are the saitek P990(which includes 4 shoulder triggers instead of the 2 that the 880 has) and the P2600 Rumble Pad, which is the P990 with the Rumble feature! They are anywhere from $20 to $30. You can check them out on http://www.saitek.com/uk/prod/gamepads.htm

Best is a bit of a subjective view.

However, I like the P880. Saitek's products are recommended by me.


The XBox Controller S scores highly in my book. too.

Same here: Dualshock2 + adapter, perfect if you don't have big hands.

I used to have Thrustmaster Firestorm gamepads, but the D-Pad tends to die after a few thousand shoryukens. :lol:
Maybe the newer models are more resistant, I haven't tried.

Dualsucks... well, suck.

Especially the DualShock 1. ATROCIOUS d-pad. It eats thumbs.
The DS2 at least has a less resistant d-pad.

DS1 pads are a little harsh. I remember having blisters after a session of SFA shortly after launch.

I've never had an issue with the DS2/DS3 pad, though.

I find the Dualsuck design as a whole to be entirely too small, with poorly-angled grips.

I'm annoyed that the prototype PS3 controllers didn't come out. Stupid fanboys threw a giant hissyfit because Sony tried to improve something, so they threw up the exact same thing, just with "no" wires.

What, the boomerang? That thing didn't look comfortable at all...

It looked a lot more comfortable than the existing design.

Somewhat Gamecube, really.
