If you're going that route, the PS1 controller is literally just an updated variant of the SNES controller. The SNES was the console that actually gave us the "modern" controller (four face buttons in a diamond layout as well as shoulder buttons and a rounded shape).Considering to this day the main consoles use a variant of the controller layout of the Dual Shock, I'd say the PS1. I'd also say the PS1 for a lot of the audio stuff it had over the N64 but sadly no one really cares about audio, just graphics.
edit: And Nintendo didn't invent the Analog sticks, they get falsely credited it for it.
And even then, you could also argue that the SNES controller was just an updated NES controller with more buttons.
