Better than the original rectangular controllers
After playing with rectangular NES controllers for some 20+ years, I have now been using the dogbone controller I bought here for about a week now. It took a little getting used to as the A and B buttons are angled rather than straight in a line like the old controllers. However, I much prefer this controller to the rectangular ones. The buttons feel more responsive and because they are slightly more raised, it actually allows you to rapidly press the buttons faster. This is great for games requiring button mashing. The D-pad also feels a lot better compared to the old controllers.
