Sweet, iOS support. Been looking for a good controller to use with my 5C for games like GTA and Deus Ex. Would this work well?

I played Ninja Gaiden with it. Although, it might be as hard using it for the game you mentioned. I never heard of it. I'll have to look into it.

/random videos. I played the hell out of this game when I was a kid. The top-down "Races" were just standard Left/Right steering and a button to activate powerups or Nitro. The side-scrolling events however required you to mash left and right as fast as possible, and I believe use A/B to shift up or down.

It was hell on my hands back then. And if your truck was broken or lacked upgrades...ugghhh.. I mean, I may have just been a stupid kid and bad at games...but that game...that. game...

A lot of games back then were hard as hell. A goo 90% of them were. I can see how that game can piss you off.

Weird design, it's like a NES and SNES crossbreed. Although personally I'm not nostalgic for that design for NES games, as I switched to NES Advantage early on and never looked back.

But yea, (insert console here) to PC adapters are easy to for just about anything these days, including NES-to-PC.

A NES controller is not comfortable to hold... I'll stick with my PS3 controller

I remember when I was a kid I got a 3rd party NES controller. I saved up my money to get one and it was awesome. I found a pic of it...

That's not a 3rd party controller...It was made by Nintendo.

But can the PS3 D-pad withstand being rocked back and forth a hundred freaking times to complete a Hill Climb in Bigfoot Racing on the NES?


Haha, I completely forgot all about that game. My uncle had it and I would always play it over there. That hill climb was rough.

"Blister-inducing?" How? Are you the type that grips the controller super tight and lift your legs every time you made a difficult jump? lol. I knew a few people like that. The Nes controller wasn't the most comfortable controller out there, but it worked really well for the time.

aside from the ps3 controller, I agree unless you're 10 years old the NES controller is far too tiny to be comfortable in my hands, in fact I'd say its the worst period.

Yeah, the NES controller was pretty much bad news. I remember when the SNES controller came out I thought it was such a huge improvement just in terms of design, not to mention the upgrade from 4 buttons to 8. Then the PSX came out and I found that to be an even better upgrade; two more buttons but also there were individual grips for each hand.

I play a lot of old games and I still load up the occasional NES game but I'm glad to do it with a modern controller that's actually comfortable to hold. I actually played through SMB3 at a friend's house a couple years ago and I was amazed by how uncomfortable I found it even just to float as one of the floaty Marios.

Beyond the grip and the button layout, though, I feel like non-split D-Pads are just too oldschool. Like, you can press the D-Pad towards the right on an NES controller and if you push the right 'button' upwards it'll make you go up. But, that wouldn't happen with a PSX/PS2/PS3/PS4 controller due to the split in the D-Pad. Just feels better. More modern.
