What is THE BEST controller??

I'm finally gonna play Elden Ring for the first time! Sadly, My old 30$ Logitech controller began to drift. And, obviously I can't play Elden ring with a keyboard and mouse.

Anyways, What is the most band for my buck? And what controller do you play with?

      I’m not a huge fan of symmetrical sticks but the wiiu controller was pretty solid regardless, especially with its absolutely absurd battery life.

        PS3 controllers had hall effect sticks. They stopped using them late in that generation though (just before the PS4).

          Only certain early ps3 controllers had them. I remember my controller that came with it got stick drift, but i bought a used one that was sixaxis only (no vibration) and it still has decent sticks to this day.

      I've been using the same ps4 controller for 2000+ hours and it is barely starting to feel gritty in one of the control sticks' balls.
      I still remember when I first got it and held it in my hands. Felt so good. Still feels so good.

      Dual sense ergonomy is the best. However buttons are extremely shit and die within 3 months of daily use. Also the R2 adaptive trigger cannot be used on PC so the press takes way too long for reactive games like fighting games.

    I like DualSense, I like it better than PS4 one. But I'm biased because I liked Sony controllers since PS1. Sony itself is a shitty company though. I use it on PC and they refuse to provide support because they only interested in their shitty console.

      It just simply doesn't feel right, I'm so used to using controller from previous darksouls playthroughs.

      Short answer is there is no one good controller, BUT there are some good options

      >Symmetrical, Best haptics, adaptive trigger gyro, touchpad = DuaSense
      >Above, plus extra buttons and swappable sticks among other features = DualSense Edge
      DS/DSEdge are someof the best if you want symmetrical. Unfortunately, you WILL need to get drivers that don't suck to use them properly on PC. Thankfully Steam does it auto-magically even for the Edge buttons that don't work on the PS5 except for options, but otherwise you need DS4Windows or other FOSS projects .Some games that had PS5 releases have DS enhancements even on PC, Death Stranding Director's Cut, SpiderMan / Miles Morales, Horizon series, Last of Us series, upcoming Ghost of Tsushima

      >Asymmetric, Plug and play, analog trigger but no gyro or touchpad
      >Above, plus paddles, swappable dpad and stick tops, more = Elite S2
      Elite S2 has been my daily driver for ages and is worth it in most cases, until DSEdge came out. Most cross platform made for XInput. Drivers easily available and/or native supported.

      >Asymmetric, Nintendo buttons, no analog trigger, NFC, but adds Gyro, needs drivers = Switch Pro

      Good for emuating Nintendo titles, I find its best used for that but can be used for many other things depending. Needs Steam or other driver packages though.

      Very insightful thank you anon. Honestly In my head, I thought GOOD QUALITY third party controllers designed specifically for pc would be more prevalent.

Now it very might be that some open source utils can get around some of this but I'm not sure, but given how these often cost nearly as much as first party controller, its sometimes not worth it. Just keep your eyes out. Also stuff like Scuf have been MORE expensive than Elite S2 or DSEdge but had problems unfortunately.

      Are these actually worth being half the price of a Sexbox controller? They just seem worse in every way yet people keep recommending them. I'd get it if you were tight on money, but even then why not just save up another 20-30 bucks and get a Xbone controller? Or a PS4/5 controller if you prefer the d-pad layout?

          They are perfectly functional. When I was a poorgay that bit of plastic was the golden key to a world of consoles I'd never be able to afford back then. I strongly associate the controller with Silent Hill 1, because I played it first there from that instant play rom package that was circulating.

          But thats it, they are "functional". It isn't a pleasant experience and you shouldn't skimp on something that is the main part of the gameplay experience. It should never be recommended.

      Literally holding this back is the god-awful D-pad, if you could somehow swap in one from another controller, that's when it would be the GOAT

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Did you ever use oneof the "Silver Edition" ones? The GOAT X360 pad? They were silver colored, had black and white buttons, and the DPad had swappable 2 way from the standard to an 8way circle-ish design. I wonder why they didn't keep with this, but I guess Series pads kinda split the difference, and Elite S2 can physically swap between 8 way faceted like a series pad and/or a cross style, both in metal.

        i wouldn't trust scuf as far as i could fricking throw them, their entire controller lineup only exists because they had to prove they weren't patent trolling valve (and they failed to prove this)

        Yeah, its too bad. Oh by the way the anon above who had OP's pic, the Steam Controller and speaking of valve is good - its just too bad we don't yet have a Steam Controller 2.0 thathas the Deck Layout with 2 sticks PLUS touchpads. Honestly, using the Deck AS a controller, if you don't mind theweight is pretty amazing overall - and it can be used as a DS/3DS/WiiU pad in those emulatorson the screen there.

          Deck layout is inferior to the Steam Controller layout. SC right touchpad and face buttons are in perfect positions, unlike every other controller that places buttons above/to the right of the joystick.

            Anonymous

            Strong disagree as possible. Having the face buttons in the place where stick usually is fricks with muscle memory in major ways - its one of the main arguments about the Steam Controller, aside from it lacking a 2nd/right stick . On almost ALL controllers since the NES (and some before but we'll go there) and definitely since the analog+ buttons era of the PS1 and N64, the buttons have been on upper outer right aspect for ABXY style, so moving em in fricks with things. Another reason the WiiU gamepad / pro controller was nowhere near as well appreciated as the Switch Pro ( though forother reasons the WiiU wasn't as bad as the Steam Controller, namely the former had larger buttons ). Still not a good idea for most

              That's the entire problem: almost all controllers have an inferior layout. I find it much easier to use face buttons while looking around on the Steam Controller than on anything else. Why would I specifically want to have muscle memory for a worse layout?

Just keep your eyes out. Also stuff like Scuf have been MORE expensive than Elite S2 or DSEdge but had problems unfortunately.

      Those options don't seem appealing at all. Makes sense that third party controllers aren't popular now that I think about it.

      I prefer the dualsense or switch pro controller but most PC games in the year of our lord 2024 still don't have playstation/nintendo controller prompts, so if that bothers you just get an xbox controller. They're almost as good.

      I really dont mind the the plate shape of the xbox controller, but seems that people like it the most in this thread, which I didnt expect due to pic related.

    I mean a regular powera xbox controller to me is just as good as the regular xbox controller. Does it feel as premium no but it werks.

    Favorite controller I've used is the Wolverine Ultimate. It's wired only though. Tournament edition has stiffer buttons. Never used the V2 model. Playstation 4/5 controllers are good if you want to go down that route.

    Not really a fan of the switch controller. Just doesn't feel as ergonomic as the others I mentioned. Seems solidly built though I rarely use mine.

    In terms of current-gen controllers, Dualsense is probably the best for as long as its sticks don't drift. I like how the Xbox controller feels, and it has the best native compatibility on PC, but its face buttons don't always activate if you press them off-center and that kills it for me.
    Previous-gen controllers all use micro-USB which is awful if you use them wired.

    I never used the Steam controller but I'm very familiar with all the major console ones.

    They are all really great, actually. I think I'd put Xbox at #1 if you aren't going to take advantage of any of the haptic features, which Elden Ring doesn't support on PC, but some games do like Ghostwire Tokyo. If you have interest in that then Dualsense for sure.

    Switch Pro is also great, but not as good as the other two I'd say, just in terms of "handfeel".

      I rather appreciate that games used to have the balls to try different things with peripherals. Nintendo seems to be one of the only ones that remains, outside of niche hardware on PCs (ie VR, Star Citizen support for HOTAS/HOSAS ). Those who want something akin to Steel Battalion conceptually, check out Vox Machinae, preferably in VR. It works with mouse/keyboard/joysticks too.

      Buy a chinese one with hall effect sensors so the sticks actually last. Otherwise here's my experience with them:
      >Playstation controllers have dogshit battery life.
      >Xbox controllers feel nice but you'll probably want a rechargeable AA battery kit or the battery add-on from microsoft.
      >Switch pro has buttons in place of analog triggers so it's a definite no.
      >I haven't used a steam controller but have a Deck, there is no way the touchpad on the left feels acceptable as a d-pad.
      All things considered, I'd pick an xbox controller from this list, unless you want to mess with gyro aiming.
      I also heard 8bit do has some great controllers, I can vouch for the m30 if you're into platformers or fighters.

      I don't think that the 'hall effect' sticks necessarily end up any better, or lack other problems necessarily. Their claim is being immune to the "drift" caused by general potentiometer use but not all controllers end up with that drift and shitty hall effect sensors can have their own problems. I don't think its a reason to avoid any first party controllers, but keep in mind that with varying degree of ease you can just replace the thumbsticks (on the Xbox Elite S2 it requires disassembly and isnt' intended for users to do themselves but can be done, easier than with a standard Series X/S or XBOne DualSense Elite on the other hand is made for easy swap out of not just the thumbstick tops, but the whole mechanism if desired, even with hall effect if you like) . There are some 3rd party offerings that are worthwhile enough, but I wouldn't go out of my way just because someone slaps a hall effect mechanism in it.

      Hall effect symmetrical layout controller?

      If you're willing to pay, get a DualSense Edge and replace both sticks with hall effect mechanisms. I think Guilkit makes some

      Chink controllers, unironically. 8BitDo Ultimate and KingKong 2 Pro are both pretty good and have hall effect joysticks, so you don't need to worry about drift.
      Out of the ones in your picture, DK Bongs is obviously the GOAT and the Steam controller is discontinued, but other than that Xbox Elite 2 > Switch Pro > DualSense. DualSense is particularly bad because Sony loaded with a bunch of useless shit that drains the battery in a second, not to mention that they can't seem to figure out that the movement joystick should be in the dominant position, not the fricking dpad.

      People will have differing opinions on the layouts, but symmetrical Playstation style has their fans. For what its worth, even those who generally prefer asymmetric, the DualSense is far more comfortable than some older DualShocks which is nice.

      That said, if you're a fan of those chinktrollers, how do they operate driver/utility wise? 8bitdo Ultimate, GuiliKit KK3 Max etc... do these work on Linux or even Windows with full features like gyro, rear paddles etc without some app?

    The series controllers have lackluster d-pads and really horrible flimsy bumpers, but the battery is decent and it just works on any windows machine. elites are very customizable, with extra inputs on the back, but I don’t believe the thumb sticks are replaceable when they start to drift, which I think matters at that price. At least it’s cheaper than the Edge (and currently on sale). The current gen controllers are also usb c as the One is not.

    In terms of symmetrical controllers, the playstation controllers really vary, and none have native windows support so youll need third party drivers or to run your games through steam.
    The DS4 isnt a terrible option but the battery life is abhorrant, and they have an LED strip which never shuts off (This can be disabled in steam). I also find the corner where the handle meets the midsection digs into my finger and the ergonomics are pretty lackluster, but not worse than the PS3. They use micro usb which sucks but at least replacement cables are cheap…
    Dualsense is my favourite controller Ive ever owned. Its rock solid, insanely comfortable in my hands and the textured grips are really nice. It uses USB C and the battery life is good for me for about 7 hours.
    Wii U pro controllers are also comfortable and easy to find and have the best battery life Ive ever seen, but have a shiny finish that shows finger prints, scratches easily, and gets slippery in sweaty hands. They also have really stiff face buttons which become tiring in long sessions.
    Switch Pros are the most comfortable controllers Ive ever used and have practically bottomless batteries too but have disappointing, mushy dpads and the triggers are tragically also just binary buttons, which for me is such a dealbreaker it essentially murders what would otherwise be probably the best controller ever made.
    Dont get a Steam controller. They’re rare, made of cheap plastic and have no right analog stick, that said I own 3 and love them for mouse centric games.

      It has the best first party d-pad of the current gen and imo the 5th best out of any gen (after Vita, Saturn 2nd/JP revision, Mega Drive 6B and Mega Drive 3B third revision). It's the only current gen pad that allows you to use it with your thumb in the middle without blatant inaccuracies and would have been great for fighters if it weren't for the shitty face buttons.
      I could see people have problems trying slide their thumb on the edges like a Nintendo d-pad but that's not what it's made for. You have to keep your thumb down rock it like a stick.

      I have to mention that the DualSense Edge pic related has pretty much all of the benefits of the DualSense and its detriments, but a couple of differences. For the record, I also own the Xbox Elite S2 and it has been my primary use pad since its launch, now joined by DSEdge; I also keep a Switch Pro for Nintendo centric emulation, primarily, and JoyCons as well for exercise games and the like that require dual JoyCon.

      Edge features and bits aside from standard DualSense ( DualSense haptics, adaptive analog triggers, gyro, touchpad, speaker, lightbars, bluetooth connectivity, built in battery , USB-C etc).

      >Comes with a nice case with room for its accessories inside. Even has a passthrough for charging while in case.
      >4 paddles included, 2 half moon shaped 2 long L shaped like the Xbox Elite S2 type. Unfortunately for some reason, they only let you attach 2 at a time, but its not a big deal in practice as relatively few games need 4 rear paddles. Still, not sure why they didn't enable 4.
      >strange inclusion of a "cable lock" so that when connected wire,the USB-C can't come out. I guess its a rare tournament sort of thing but I never see the use for it, and big concern it would do damage if pulled accidentally while locked
      >4 additional thumbstick tops included, different heights. Unlike the ones on the Edge by default, these are old style DualShock "domed" types some prefer. It is a bit annoying they didn't offer a swappable DPad like the Elite S2. However, you can actually swap the whole mechanism for Edge sticks, not just the tops. Hall effect if you want etc
      >Making the stick mechanics user accessible meant having to shrink the battery. This is one of the bigger hypothetical downsides, but frankly its not a big deal unless you never charge the thing or play for tons of hours straight
      >There are two extra options buttons facing you below the sticks onthe Edge. Unlike PS5, Steam can program them for any function.

    A cheap $13 dollar DS4 clone controller in on Temu. But you gotta play w a cord bc the Bluetooth is laggy.

    BTW it has to be one that looks exactly like the DS4 (except it has a special graffiti design or something) because the other DS4-like controllers have issues of their own

    Got picrel recently. Has tons of features and buttons. Really good value overall if you want a switch/pc controller.

    But I can't be the only one- did anyone else end up hating these mechanical face buttons?

    They're clicky and cute at first but after having to mash them I just think they're hard and uncomfortable to press.

      >I just think they're hard and uncomfortable to press
      I don't have the Vader 3 but the Gamesir T4 Kaleid (

      i got you senpai

      ) uses similar membrane+Kailh microswitch face buttons and they're incredibly easy to register and spam, moreso than any other controller I've ever used if not counting Sanwa buttons. I almost went for the Vader 3 Pro thinking it would be the same. Both use a silicone membrane cushion to maybe depends on the rigidity of that.

        Frick anon. Don't point directly at it. I'm so tempted to buy it but I have like 5 controllers already...
        Those face buttons look sooo good. I also hate how weirdly small they are in the Vader 3 P.
        Do you have the Kaleid? How do you find the dpad?

        Anyone who have tried these high end 8bitdo, guilikit, flydigi ... anyone tried using all their functions without being stuck to some proprietary windows application? These chinkpads often literally emulate an Xbox360 pad or some shit and in some cases feature like gyro or other stuff don't work on PC etc... so I'm curious about these and if they work on Linux or even just Windows with all features without needing to use some shitfrick driverpackage that's probably proprietary and windows only . Can you set buttons to the paddles, use gyro, change profiles etc...without their app or driver program and without using Steam's controller management (Steam basically has built in input control and drivers foreverything , but I meant outside of running everything being handled b Steam)

        Only have the Vader 3 Pro and afaik, you can only remap using the software.
        Although the Apex 4 (from the same company) has a little screen in the middle you can use to rebind the 4 extra back buttons without the need for any proprietary software.

          Not great but usable. It's short travel and has a pivot but it's pretty stiff and I find diagonals can be difficult to register (it was easier after I stuck one of the circular d-pad stickers you get for the DS4). The pivot of the d-pad on my first T4K seemed to get squashed allowing all four directions to be registered but that's not possible on my second unit.
          Definitely second

          I've bought 3 8bitdo controllers over the years and ended up returning all 3
          They manage to both be better than the big 3 in some regards (mainly d-pad, xinput/dinput toggles) but then also have some unique bizarre flaws that even the lowest tier chinkshit doesn't have, like a scratchy surface around the grips that feels like sandpaper, or the stick deadzones being shit so moving the stick 1nm in any direction acts as if it's fully tilted.
          If anyone here is considering buying one, get it from Amazon or a similar store with a no-questions return policy.

          , try third party pads via Amazon in case of defects or issues (which is why I opted against getting the Vader 3 as it's not on Britbong Amazon)..

          Curious. Once its connected, how does it work? do all its features work as intended? can you use the back paddles? Does it support Xinput? Does gyro, HD rumble, analog triggers, etc.. work?

            I've only really tried it with Steam games. When in Bluetooth mode, it is seen as a Switch controller, meaning it supports all the features of the Swtich controller and nothing more. Trigger inputs are digital. The A and B buttons are in the correct place. Gyro works.
            When in 2.4ghz mode, its seen as an Xbox controller. Trigger inputs are analog. A and B buttons are switched, which is fricking infuriating, and I haven't found a way to fix it. So I just use Bluetooth mode all the time.

    10€ at a second hand shop.

    The biggest problem is going to be faulty contacts, and the plastic so old that might break from its fragility if you try to open up the controller to clean it up. Also, the plastic of the stick might have turned... sticky from its age.

    Basically every modern controller is shit. Stick drift, unresponsive buttons (Xbox), shitty d-pads with false diagonals (Switch Pro). Stick drift I understand because it's a case of bad parts, but those other things are just basic design flaws and wouldn't cost anything to fix.

    I bought a DualSense for PC emulation because I saw it was on sale for like $55 next to the $90 XBONE controllers and because I was already used to the ergonomics of the DS3 from way back when. Is this shit actually going to start drifting if I start fiddling around with the buttons in a few weeks or not? I swear to god nobody can agree on which of these controllers is just to be more likely to start drifting first, it's like everything is down to random chance.

    Also, am I supposed to be able to press down onto the joysticks or is that not an actual button making the clicking noise?

      Most graphite potentiometer joysticks will develop drift at some point or another but the DualSense seems to develop drift more rapidly than others (mine never did but I only had it for a month; Switch Pro drifted after about 4 months; Xbox Series controller has held up okay after two years).
