Hey /vr/, I recently picked up this controller for my computer, but the D-Pad isn't very good.

I can use it, but it makes my thumb really sore after a few hours since it requires so much pressure to use, as well as being one of those garbage pads that slides around in the controller.

What are some good USB controllers without garbage D-Pads?

For reference I hold the SP's D-Pad as the gold standard.

If you can, grab your preferred SNES controller and a SNES to USB adapter.

That's what I'd recommend.

Getting just a usb converter is better than gambling on the quality of an entire controller.

Plus old snes controllers are more common, so when it breaks just go find a new one to plug into your adapter

Sega Saturn dpad is easily the best one. You can get USB adapters for original controllers easily off ebay too.

I only grabbed this because it was ten bucks in a clearance bin.

I wasn't even aware that they make original to usb adapters for controllers, I'd much prefer to use my ASCII Pad or Super Advantage.

I also picked up the SNES pad because it has the most buttons and I can emulate more games that way.

How does it feel? Since you've obviously used one.

I prefer the SP's D-Pad because of the click and precision I get with it. I should have mentioned that I'm mainly playing Treasure games at the moment and I'd prefer to have precision, comfort, and solidarity in a D-Pad.

I think the NeoGeo Pocket's "D-Pad" was also kind of like that only better since it had microswitches in it.

I've also got a Genesis Flash Cart on the way, so I'm looking more into Genesis things. This High Frequency pad is the one I currently use on my Genesis, it's okay, but it was mainly just a quick replacement controller since the A Button on my original is gummed up.

Also if you have any experience using this arcade stick it'd be much appreciated because I was looking into it as well.

I'll likely pick up a Saturn Controller for PC though if the D-Pad is good, I'm planning on going to this local gamestore that has this kind of stuff soon anyway.

It's not clicky like the SP's d-pad. But it is very precise. Inputting complex moves in fighters or constantly shifting left and right in shmups is very easy and is also comfortable to use.

All retrolink brand controllers are pretty poor quality. They may seem tempting because of their low cost, but they're not worth the trouble.

You're better off using your favorite controller with an adapter. Even the shittiest looking dirt cheap adapter will usually work just fine on most computers without needing any drivers.

Yeah, I'm just going to get a Saturn Pad and adapter.

The SNES Pad's D-Pad is atrocious and leaves my thumb sore after like an hour of play, something that has never happened before to me in all of my gaming history.

Side note, but part of what helped me decide happened playing games yesterday.

I realized how crucial a good quality D-Pad is when I was getting my shit pushed in using >>3360 for Vector Man, but felt it'd be better because of the turbo.

I switched to the original pad and breezed through the game easy because of how effortlessly I was able to press in any of the 8 directions.

Really? Official Dual Shocks do that to me in games with d-pad shenanigans. Doom rekt my thumb pretty bad, and even something as innocuous as Final Fantasy 7 will be felt after a few hours.

I straight up don't use the D-Pad on any dualshock because of how horrendous it is, and didn't ever play much with one to begin with, so yeah I think it actually is literally "literally" for once.

Update in general to anyone here.

I got the Saturn Pad and the USB adapter.

Oh my god, this D-Pad, this fucking D-Pad.

It's like sticking my thumb in gods vagina.

I was thinking of getting the Microsoft Sidewinder USB since I really likes my Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 and want a controller for emulation as well as fighting games. Is it actually any good?

FC30 Pro or NES30 Pro

I have an FC30 Pro and it's fucking incredible. It'd bluetooth but it can connect to PC through the usb cable that comes packaged with it.

I got mine for like half price though.
