I've wanted to chat about this for a bit as a specific topic rather than in a sub-topic. A big part of the retro experience for me is about the original controllers that shipped with the machine as I believe these connect me with the games in the most authentic way, i know i'm not alone in this but i also know that many people have preferred controllers they like to use with everything it's also a little weird as I spent a long time using third party stuff during the Amiga era. Where do you land? Watching a 10 minute video where a guy talks about the old paddles from the 2600 reminded me I wanted to make this thread! Feel free to share photos of your collection of controllers too I'd love to see what people use and for what and how they rate them overall. I will share mine at some point - i have a few. Any tips on variations, repairs and reproduction parts or controllers is also welcome - this is the great big controller thread, have at it.
