Any NES style USB Controller Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

There seem to be a few different options out there ... I'm looking for a traditional NES style controller with a USB connector for my PC.  Are there any that members have found reliable or are there any that should be avoided?

 

Thanks.

1) http://www.retrousb.com/product_info.php?cPath=21&products_id=28 - Bruddog's suggestion is probably best for the experience and the connectors are actually $8 now when they are typically $22. Usually, when that happens they are discontinuing a product. I'd recommend grabbing one. You will need to get an OEM NES controller. EBay is your friend.

2) http://amzn.to/2AtpvBH - The Buffalo iBuffalo controller is pretty good.  I have a few and like them.

http://amzn.to/2jM1v4N - The Hyperkin Cadet is my go to. I like the hand contour and the buttons feel as close to anything I've found to be a real NES. (Disclaimer: I am sponsored by Hyperkin but my opinion is genuine. I have many of these and truly enjoy using this over the others.)

Thanks for the responses guys.  Unfortunately, I sold off my NES (and 40+ games) about 15 years ago when I joined up with Uncle Sam.  However, I my snag a couple of those connectors just in case.

 

I ordered one of the iBuffalo controllers to test out.  I may pick up a Cadet as well depending on my experience.

      what type of controller is best for playing tecmo on your computer? i ordered an adapter on amazon so I can use the original nes controller for the computer. Is that the best way to play, or are the third party usb controllers adequate?

      thanks,
      TecmoSteve
