Top 10 Worst Video Game Controllers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Wii Controller

I have no idea why Nintendo released this piece of crap. If you've had a history with the classic controller design, this thing will frustrate you. The buttons are awkwardly placed and the motion sensitivity will sometimes mess up and screw up your game. Also, I have pretty big hands and the controller was actually a bit small in my hands so it made pressing the right button a pain. Now if you've played with this thing a lot, then you may get used to the feel of it soon, but trying to play Smash Bros. on this thing was just ridiculous and made you look like a total noob. And trying to play racing games with the thing was a pain in the ass and made your arms hurt like hell. Then Microsoft had to make it even worse by releasing the stupid and broken Kinect. I'm glad Nintendo switched to new controller for the Wii U. I was a bit worried about it because of the size but the controller has a natural feel to it with the way you hold it and the button placement. - Mcgillacuddy

There's nothing wrong with the shape of the controller. It doesn't break or anything, but sometimes the motion controls screw up and make you lose.
Why do we need motion controls anyway? Buttons are fine! We don't need motion that doesn't respond to the sensor that well.

Why is this controller is here? It's great! It's better than PlayStation move and Xbox Kinect!

Why does this need to be on the list.

22 Madcatz GameCube Controller

It breaks and sticks easily. It could barely be used for a month.

23 Kinect 1

Kinect is awful. It does not work. The Wii remote is a much better idea of a motion controller.

I agree. the wii is Very Great and good but the Kinect IS BAD

27 Atari 5200 Controller

So bad it appears on this list more than once!

28 Commodore 64 Controller

This is one crappy controller

29 PS Move
30 Atari 7800

I know the system and the logo, but not the controller.

31 Steam Controller Steam Controller The Steam Controller is a game controller developed by Valve Corporation. The controller is designed not only for games developed for controller users, but also for games traditionally played with keyboard and mouse controls so that they can be played through the controller.

What the living hell is this? Is this supposed to be a controller?

32 Playstation Mouse
33 Alphagrip AG-5

How many video games need 100 buttons, anyway!

Too many buttons

34 Nintendo Gamecube Controller

Why is this here? This is the best controller ever! All the buttons are so organized. And it's a very comfortable controller that fits your hands perfectly.

I say it's a bit weird controller, but a good one actually.

I'm not going to hold on to an odd M-shaped controller ever again.

It is best controller ever!

36 Xbox One Controller

What this is almost the same as the Xbox360 controller. And on another site some idiot put it has 2nd on ' best video game controllers of all time' - Harri666

37 Wii U Controller

Why is this on the list? It's a new thing that Nintendo invented. Its like a home console 3ds! Why not try that? I say it's a good controller.

Let's face it, the Wii U is as phony as a three-dollar bill!

This is unique don't deserve be on the list - st2600

"Umg the gamepad suxz its sooo dum"
WRONG. Its modeled after a 3DS (Gamepad + T.V. ) Plus it has motion controls and if you have played Nintendoland you can hold it sideways n' stuff.
Its also HD.
Plus its still new, Give it a chance! - aarond90

40 Philips CDi Remote

Ok, this piece of garbage thrown up on by a skunk is the WORDT controller I have EVER had the displeasure to use! It felt terrible, unresponsive, and to add the cherry on top of the crap pie, it was the MAIN controller that came with the CDI! This piece of crap was doomed from the start
