i use these with my sony dualshock 2 - best gaming experience, eventually totally new due to the possibility to reprogram the buttons. still some stuff is better to be played with my competition pro, but for pads i totally recommend these:

I personally like the Sega Megadrive, Saturn, Neo Geo and Snes pads they all have nice responsive buttons and a great d-pad (Neo Geo pad has more of a thumb stick than a real d-pad but it's great to use ).

When using winUAE, I use my Xbox 360 controller which works excellent when hooked up to a PC. The D-pad is kinda crap, but the analogue stick works fine as a 'digital' joystick. And an additional bonus is that the 360 controller doesn't strain. The PSX controller gives me cramps every time....

I like the 360 controller but also agree the d-pad is rubbish! Good thing it's hardly ever needed but i would like a better one for games such as Street Fighter 4

But for pretty much all other types of games i find the 360 controller to be the best and most comfortable of the current generation (especially for FPS and racing games )

Anyone ever hear of a Warp1 Joypad/stick thing. It is a black sphere with gold coloured touch sensitive contact pads that act as buttons?

That wink has totally confused my sarcasm filter. But either way, I actually think it's quite underrated.

Whoops, I was being serious, I love it. Have 2 mint condition CD32 Controllers, 1 on my A1200 and the other on my sons A600. CD32 is packed away nice and tidy in the attic, .

The CD32 pad? I think it was Commodore's last joke. A crap design/material quality, so it matches the console.

The Commodore CD32 pad was made by Honey Bee, same as the Competition Pro CD32 pad. I have ordered what appears to be an official replacement D-pad for the Commodore CD32 pad, which has a proper cross design on it. I never knew these existed until I saw it on eBay and bought it recently, but I'm still waiting for it to arrive.

I wonder what other control pads have a D-pad the right size to fit into a Commodore CD32 control pad, because I think they would feel a lot nicer if only their flat D-pad was replaced.

The official CD32 pad is very cheapy made. The the D pad would come of position, so up was left and left was down etc.

If you want a really good joypad for PC emulation (2D games): The best, no doubt.
