You know those moments when you're afraid to buy something because you see it was made by a different company and aren't sure if its's going to be somewhat of a failure?
This controller decides to go against that bias and say "Hey dude's, I'm actually decent."
I was hesitant to buy it when I didn't see it was Nintendo but I found out that it can take a fall, and even though the case of the actual controller would leave one to think of shotty work (the case literally has little pieces of plastic still sticking out that weren't properly sanded off, bought 4 controllers, all 4 have it). However those small pieces are safe and don't cut, thankfully, and are just a small aesthetic displeasure, the controller itself is durable as well as the cord. The connectors can take some roughing so that's also an A+ in my book.
For a controller made by a different company it's just as good and deserves a 5 out of 5.
