Today I held a NES "dogbone" controller for the first time at my local used gaming shop. You know the ones they released with that top-loading NES in the early '90s, attempting to rebrand it as a "budget" console...
(Dude, if there's one console that stood the test of time, fun-wise, it's the NES. But they're efforts to rebrand it were just... depressing.)
But anyway, the controller felt wonderful Better than the SNES controller IMO! Curves on every side--even around the buttons on top. Like the Wii Classic controller it has a curved back, but it doesn't feel... I don't know, it's a lot more comfortable than that is. The directional buttons are the same ones as the SNES, it seems. he A and B buttons were a bit small, but still easy to press.
So I bought it for $5. It passed my "Contra Test" and it is awesome.
That is all.
