This is what I use for emulation. Anything that requires analog I use a PS2 pad, the analog on PS1 is clunky as hell. On PS2 it still is compared to modern pads but less so than on PS1.
So I don't see the point of using a PS1 pad with analog, I don't use the analog so it's just extra useless weight on the controller.

If I cared so much about analog (I don't) I'd get a modern controller; but still use the non-analog PS1 pad for any emulation and PC game that doesn't require analog

I just ordered a convertor to use NES pads on PC for extra autism, I plan to use it for NES, GB and PC Engine

>those adapters are not very reliable either

I've been using those adaptors for 15 years, I've had at least 3-4 different models, and there is no issue whatsoever except the cable of the adaptor wearing down due to hanging from the weight after several years; but for 5 bucks I won't complain

whats the point of the select button? were there even playstation games that used it? seems like pretty dumb to have a "select" button when you can use the d-pad to select stuff anyway....

What PS1 games are better with analog? I only have the original controller

Its hilarious in its own right.
You put the sticks where the grip is suppose to end, instead of increasing the size of the grip. You then keep that abomination for the 2 next consoles, and partially for the 3rd next console.

>The controller gives it all away. Its a souped-up Genesis pad, basically, right at a time when the gaming world was obsessed with upcoming 3D.
I'm guessing you are a zoomer from your lack of awareness

Many folks say the d-pad is bad? What exactly is the problem with it? I've never had issue. To me it is one of the best around. What d-pad is equal to or better in your opinion?

Once we hit the fifth generation though things get more muddied. 1994 was a big year. The PlayStation launches with an SNES knockoff controller, pic related. It put some handles on it and added extra shoulder buttons but it is clearly just an evolution of the SNES gamepad. The Saturn launches with an improved version of the 6 button Genesis controller. It now featured shoulder buttons. Again, it was clearly an evolution of the previous generation. Both are just improved versions of Nintendo originals.

1996 is another big year. The N64 launches and its controller is equal parts genius and madness. It saw some simple changes. A single trigger button replaces the shoulder buttons. The select button is dropped. X and Y are replaced with 4 C buttons. It has an expansion port. It’s different but nothing too revolutionary on paper. The significant changes were the three fat dongs for handles and its thumbstick. The thumbstick was brilliant. The overall shape was lunacy. It was an evolutionary dead end.

A month later the Saturn 3D gamepad launches with NiGHTS. This is probably the most influential controller of its generation. That’s not saying a whole lot though. While it clearly formed the basis of the Dreamcast controller it was ignored by Sony and Nintendo. While the original Xbox controller is influenced by it I think that was more to do with them not wanting to copy Sony’s DualShock or Nintendo’s monstrosity then it being the more superior design.

Sony launches the Dual Analog in early 1997. It’s their first gamepad to feature analog thumbsticks and has a simple rumble feature in the Japanese edition. It’s a clear improvement but is replaced later that same year with the DualShock. The DualShock is the king of controllers from the fifth generation. Improved dual thumbs sticks with buttons, dual rumble motors (because 2 > 1), and slightly improved shoulder buttons all built on top of the SNES controller’s solid foundations.

Did you forget that the original PS1 controller had no analog stick either? For an authentic experience you don't need anything but the directional buttons, aside from a handful of games that specifically use the stick from the later controllers (Ape Escape is one, iirc).

The lack of all shoulder buttons can be an issue but it depends on what games you like to play. There are a lot of PS1 games that really don't use all four shoulder buttons. I personally mostly enjoy RPGs, so I never saw any problems.

Anyways I don't use mine for just PS1 gaming, I also use it for GB/C and GBA emulation as well as NES, some SNES as well as PSP games. While it's not the best portable system on the market, it's cheap, easy to use and versatile.

What does /vr/ think of the original Playstation controller?

The ORIGINAL controller.

/vr/, where can I find the maximum repeat speed on controllers?

My Google-fu has thus far been ineffective.
