^^ could be worth a look in, if you don't bother with a hori pad as a full-on replacement:

and get some lithium grease as a maintenance tool, to keep the joints lubricated, and it won't hurt to redo any existing sticks you have with it. :D

Mine started off strong, but after hundreds of hours of play it doesn’t centre and stays floppy.
i used viagra last night and it helped me with my weak faggy penos

Wanna be friends?
my idea of friendship is sticking my cock in your ass and lifting weights and training to be like the Connors in Terminator series

However I think Sony did a better job overall with the Dual Shock controller in form overall. I was never a fan of the N64's controller and the trident look was just meh to me. I admit it worked well for the games that Nintendo themselves made but I don't think a lot of 3rd party devs wanted to deal with it. The Gamecube controller however is still one of the most comfortable to use even to this day for me.
Oh my fucking god. I think I've already fucking typed this all out 3 pages previous. READING. COMPREHENSION.

My only thing to add (again....) is that Nintendo didn't invent or even revolutionize the analog stick, they simply used it on their launch product because 3D gaming was more of a gimmick for most N64 games rather than an immersive experience. That being said, yeah, there's fun games that definitely are great 3D classics that aged pretty well (Star Fox 64 and Super Mario 64 for instance are still incredible games that we definitely need an analog stick for) but the fact that Sony did it too does not mean they were running behind Nintendo like hapless retards. EVERYONE was going to do an analog stick. It WASN'T a genius, patented idea. And Nintendo's material design and longetivity sucked worse than any console of the generation, and they never released an improved version of it. Sony did. Sony better.

Can you swallow all of that whole? Like can u read that? Thanks.

EDIT: also, motherfuckers up in here talkin about putting fucking straw in the joystick to fix it. great design!!!! LOL. I remember doing this with every single N64 controller my friend had. All four of them. In 2006 or some shit because the controller is a fucking piece of shit. Meanwhile I have two PSX dualshock controllers that took way more of a beating for a longer time and the only fucking thing wrong with it is a tiny bit of cosmetic rubber on the top of the grip has worn & torn off.

Yeah, total gimmick. Most N64 games could've been 2D games, but developers jumped on that 3D gimmick bandwagon. 3D is such a gimmick, no wonder it never caught on.

that isn't what i meant and everyone besides you and your uncircumsized tr0ll penis knows it

just to clarify, the PSX and Saturn has tons of 2D arcade ports and general 2D games that are better than many shitty 3rd party N64 games that were 3D so they could sell graphics. N64 was the beginning of that shit.

And yes, actually. Think about the Kirby game for N64. Or how well the original DOOM has aged versus fucking GoldenEye, which no one wants to fucking play anymore. DOOM never even bothered with the split screen shit because deathmatch via LAN was superior.

you're like a paper action figure cut out of a 4chan magazine

just to clarify, again, for the autistic fucks reading this, the N64 has tons of gimmicky 3D games meant to sell the system to people who like 3D gimmicks. That is what I meant. Definitely more of a gimmick for the N64 because these games weakened its library. Many people agree that there's only a handful of good games for the N64, and thats because there are lots of shitty fucking games right next to them, and many of them could have been 2D games and amazing. Castlevania Symphony of the Night versus Castlevania 64. Any fighter released on PSX/Saturn versus any fighter released on N64. Even the fucking 2D one, Mortal Kombat Trilogy, got an absolutely shit ass port for the N64 with less characters, lol.

I wanna say I read somewhere that the 64 controller was really made for one game, Mario 64. It worked fine for that game , but yea I felt it wasn't as nice for other games. It wasn't horrid, but it does look a bit silly. In saying that, there are several games I did enjoy on the system. Bangia-o, Salt and Pepper, Paper Mario, Mischief Makers, Goemon's Great Adventure, and Ogre Battle: Person of Lordly Caliber to name some. The anti aliasing on alot of games was a little overt is some cases though.

You're not wrong on that. Overall tho thanks to there being a code to remove that smear, It really made a much better difference in the look in some games. Interestingly enough, a few games like Golden Eye actually ended up with a higher frame rate performance because of the AA being removed.

The only drug madman would do is the white plastic powder that comes out of a worn N64 analog stick.

Hahahaha man he has that shit bagged and collected ready to sell on the street corner.

I honestly thought this was just playing along with an obvious dick joke. No idea people actually repaired N64 controllers with straws.

The n64 controller is the autism helmet of controllers. Looks funny, dead giveaway that you are super special. Some n64 games are good fun, controller be fucked.

The dreamcast had the first decent analog thumb-stick. Hall effect sensors don't wear or oxidize.

I hate the design of the Play-Station controllers (PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4). They are so uninspired, stock and plain.
