i like the fact that rumble is optional because i hate rumble i always open my ps2 xbox etc pads and clip the motor wires
Ive heard the GC style replacements are crap from a few people

I agree 100 percent with your statement. I even made a little video on how it doesn't make any sense. It's just so awkward, I don't think it's comfortable at all no matter how I use it.
back in the day i didn't like this controller at all as i felt it had a learning curve that made it impossible to play fairly against people who didn't have their own (and therefore experience of it) the arrival of analogue sticks was always going to be difficult to figure out though and someone had to take the leap

I found the stick itself uncomfortable to use.
ps controller=best controller ever is has the biggest number of buttons in a very comfortable and practical design
I frigging love to look at it but I frigging hate to use it. I still think it should have brought an instruction manuEL :D
I don't understand what you mean by it being too clever. You just hold it with your left hand on the middle prong and right on the right. That's it. There are very few games that use both the dpad and analog stick for different functions, or at least functions you'll need to use often. And very few games that use the dpad instead of the stick. Think of it more like the DC pad, but with a more inconveniently placed dpad.

Alot of selection, for one controler...Awesome tho
I didn't like the N64 pads when I first got hold of one (release day :P), but after a few days of use I absolutely loved it and still do to this day. My original pads are still really good to use and the sticks are really tight and responsive, but other pads that I have acquired through bulk buys and car boot bundles have pretty much always had broken analogue sticks. This is probably my all time fav pad, although I will admit it takes me an hour to get used to it if I haven't used one for a bit
