The perfect ergonomic controller for me is the Xbox controller. The original was one of the weirdest choices in gaming history - it was absurdly big for me as a 10 year old. But, since they released the 'S' version, I've always preferred that layout and the latest versions for the Series X are ideal for me. The only thing I'd add would be a bit of ventilation or something to the underside for those tense sections where my palms get a bit sweaty 😥

Are there any controllers with vents? Because I need that too haha

GameCube controller for me! I just found it ridiculously comfortable and I've got the USB adapter for it so I can use it on PC for games that don't need all the trigger buttons at least.

May also have something to do with my GameCube modding obsession as well...

I’ve had one of those adapters in my Amazon cart for ages haha. I’d love to play some of the neo retro survival horror games on Steam with a good old GC pad.

Buttons aside I think the GC controller is the best in terms of comfort. I think they did loads of ergonomic designs and before settling on the final shape. I think its the large curved shoulder buttons that make it incredibly natural to fit around your hand

This one:

We used to constantly break C64 joysticks after 6-12 months when I was young. Bought this one and we laughed because it had a 5 year warranty and no way would it last 5 years with our usage! We would be able to constantly claim on it and never have to buy one again!

it ended up having a crazy amount of use and saw us through the C64, Amiga 500, CD32 and Megadrive before the next gen thing we got did away with the universal port everyone used. I really don't know how they manufactured these or how they made the components so long lasting but someone did a very good job to not have to pay for that 5 year warranty promise!

to be completely honest I used to only use pc so now whenever I play with a controller i sometimes get a bit confused hahahah

Ha that sounds familiar, but I'm the other way...console gamer at heart, so when I panic the keys around W.A.S.D. get mashed! 😂

Hands down the Xbox 360 controller. It's so good that even Nintendo took it and called it the pro-controller! Although the playstation controller is comfortable I do think the asymmetric joysticks are the way to go
