It's a bit soon to say, but.. I think I have to give my vote to the one on the Vita.
Love that dang D-Pad, it just feels.. right.
How about everyone else? Which console controller or handheld has your favorite directional pad?
Listen...I just played 2 SNES games in a row, one quite long. I don't recall what it was like when those were relatively new controllers, but both the ones that I have require quite a lot of force to push down the d-pads. I found that my thumb hurt quite badly after some longer sessions, so I started experimenting with taking the rubber out of an N64. Unfortunately that didn't improve the situation much.
The original NES controller seems to have held up better in my experience, I'd lean towards that.
When I'm playing RPGS on my Ps2/ ps3 I usually use that Dpad for the menus. It's pretty solid. I believe that is also how I played Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2. It also works well for PC gaming. It's how I'm playing Cave Story.
The Snes is also really good.
Use your keyboard!
