Favorite Nintendo controller?

More than any other video game console manufacturer, Nintendo designs completely different controllers for each of its game consoles. Which Nintendo controller is your favorite?

Please only consider controllers made by Nintendo.

NES. Man those things were indestructible, I could slam that thing against the floor during a fit of rage with no consequence.

N64 felt great when I first had it. Don't know how it'd hold up now, but it was great for the time.

I voted SNES, though I love the GC controller for extended Mario Kart and Smash Bros. sessions.

#1. Wavebird & WiiU Pro - I'm gonna put these a TIE since neither were standard pack-ins. Pro has the edge on battery, WB has the edge in ergonomics.

#2. N64 - loved it way more than most.

#3. Wiimote + Nunchuck - Not the motion, but the split design was pretty comfy

#4. SNES - basic but a great advancement from the NES pad

#5. WiiU Tablet - unweildly and uncomfy for long periods. Also horrid battery life

#6. NES - Indestructible or not, even with it's iconic design it is horribly uncomfortable.
