QotD: I don't know if I really have a favorite. I've grown quite accustomed to the Xbox 360 controller, and though clunky, I liked the Dreamcast controller, with the VMU mini-screen in the middle.

I couldn't stand the N64 controller (sorry, boomhauertjs). It felt unnatural to hold, and when it came right down to it there was only one way that any game really used the controller anyways - I can't recall holding it in either of the two "alternate" positions.

I liked the Intellivision controller. Say what you will about having to fumble with all those overlays, the disc was the precursor to the d-pad and was much friendlier on the thumbs. Except for those stiff side buttons - those tore more flesh from the tips of my thumbs than I care to recollect. And though Coleco tried to improve upon it with bigger side buttons (which worked) and a knobby stick (which did not), the Intelly will still go down as one of my all-time.

QOTD: Xbox 360.

I do like the Playstation 3 controller as it feels lighter and a bit more quiet on the buttons, but it just seems that my hands cramp up much more noticeably when playing for prolonged periods with the PS3 controller versus the 360.

There was a post somewhere recently that had a PS3 controller that was shaped like a 360 controller...has anybody seen or come across that at all?

QOTD: 360.\

Also, the drunk clown Craigslist ad is awesome. Too bad they couldn't list some of the more despicable and X-rated stuff you see on there because that's the true goldmine.

QOTD: Gamecube Controller was the best to me. I think the 360 controller is a close 2nd and PS3/PS2 is 3rd.
