Dreamcast Controller Sucks Ass

Trying to play Contagion on my Dreamcast but the controller is so shitty it ruins my enjoyment. Are there any good alternatives to the stock controller?

    Yes. You can go find them on your own.

      Don't listen to him. You can make your own Dreamcast controllers at home with ingredients bought at the grocery store for cheaper and, get this, it will also taste better.

      Please post recipe— every Dreamcast controller I make ends up tasting like burnt toast.

      RetroFighters is the only brand I know that makes one. Youre a ball sucker for not liking the DC controller though.

      The PS1 Dual Shock had two analog sticks and bumper buttons two years before the Dreamcast came out. Sega dropped the ball on the Dreamcast controller. I still love the system.

      Oh fuck off. It's a fact that your homemade Dreamcast controller will never match a an professionally-made one.
      What you want is to find some nice place with great reviews that specializes in free range controllers. None of that factory-made bullshit. They cost a pretty penny but the experience is absolutely worth it.
      Anyone that tells you to look out for the japanese ones is talking outta their ass though.

      I wanted to like the Dreamcast controller back when I had one, but it kinda sucks. It's not bad to the point of being unusable, but I just couldn't help but compare it to the Genesis and Saturn's controllers. If Sega's previous consoles didn't have some of my personal favorite controllers I probably wouldn't think as lowly of the Dreamcast's.
      I honestly don't even hate the weird analog stick and actually like the face buttons and triggers. I just hate that dpad.

        The Saturn six button controller is awesome.

      This sucks too.

      OP best bet is to get one of these brook adapters and plug in a Xbox One controller, the adapter has a built in VMU btw

        Oh shit, we have our winner. I have one of their adapters for my PlayStation and PS2 and love it to death. I'm gonna get one for my Mega Drive and PC Engine sometime soon as well.

        Right? ASCII made a pad for the Dreamcast that pretty much mimicked that layout but from what I've read of other posters' experiences it was also pretty bad.

          It's not bad, has many of the same problems other imitation saturn pads do. The d-pad floats too high.

      I got sucked into buying one of these when they were on sale for under 30 dollars and I still feel like I got ripped off

        Do you?
        I think the 64 controller is more suited to smaller hands
