    I got suckered into thinking I should get the Max. When was that, 1987? That thumb-pad is one of the stupidest things Nintendo has done. I got this instead of an Advantage. Commence kicking.

    Anyway, the dogbone is the best NES pad.

    The only controller I know of that sucks more is the TurboTouch 360. Do they ever test these things or do they design, build and sell them and *then* see what happens?

    The controller works great for Fester's Quest, but that's about it.

    recently got 2 "max controllers" that were factory sealed and a factory sealed "advatage controller". I've owned the advantage as a kid but never tried the max. I was waiting for my NEX to arrive before I tried it. Hopefully the max is not as bad as everyone here thinks! (spent TOO much for this stuff)

    This is NOT as bad of a controller as everyone else here seems to think, it just takes getting used to. At a time when it was my only NES controller, I got used toit, and now I use it more than the dogbone. If you've ever used the power glove, you probably hate it too, but if you get used to it it's not that bad. Give the max a chance.

    My life and perception has changed, but my principals are the same.

    This was my NES controller of choice. Twas my favorite one by far.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    I've seen many of them in the wild but never felt the need to buy any.

    About as rare as Super Mario 3.

    And I love the Max, BTW, even though most seem to hate it.

    I'm always looking for new boxed NES accessories. If you've got any for sale, shoot me a PM!

    Yea I had this controller, It just took away the feeling of actually knowing your pressing down and the character was moving so people didn't like it. I mean imagine playing SF2 with that thing
