Elite Series 2 for me, back paddles make it the best for me.
For casual play the Series controller is fine.
i also voted elite series 2 but i have actually removed the paddles. hair trigger thing don't really use either. love the feel, grips and replaceable parts though of course.

360 has been my go-to since ancient times, but I rotate it out often for its bad dpad. Reading the impressions here, I might have to try the Series controller.

I have a first gen Xbox One controller, the one without bluetooth, I don't like the triggers or the action on the face buttons. The stick felt loose compared to 360 which for me docked points as well.

That said, I think Xbox has the most consistently good controller design. I'd rather use that first gen Xbox One pad than any Dual Shock. And Nintendo...by the time they got around to making a normal damn controller, they forgot how to make a dpad. Leaving an opening for Series to win this contest.

Razer Wolverine Ultimate. No other company makes the extra button layout like Razer does, mainly talking about the extra buttons next to LB/RB. It just is so comfy for me, and the whole grip and adjustable sticks and switchable d-pad. It has a great design. This being said the material quality is dogshit, so it's not really worth it's prize, but I still bought my 3rd one because no one else makes this layout.
Overall my favorite controller as well.

I have tried the V2 newer and cheaper and hated it.

I also love it has the chat dongle built in having 2 rowdy Dobermans who play fight all the time its nice using a wired headset and having that mute mic button easy to push

OG controller. It was unique as all get-out. I apprecaited that. Everything since was an amalgamation of gamecube and xbox... nothing wrong with that, subsequent controllers have been great, but yeah the OG lives on

Not wireless though. I've tried Razor's PS controller, and that is also wired only. Complete deal breaker.
