#10 – HORI Mini Wired Gamepad

As we’ll see throughout the list, controllers can get really expensive, and if you’re raising a family, your kids may find standard controllers a little hard to use for their small hands. Luckily, Sony and HORI have designed a controller to make their gaming experience easier. The Mini Wired Gamepad features a more rounded structure, allowing your kids to reach buttons easier without straining their hands. Heck, you may even want to try it out for easier, less intense games. It may tether you to your console, but if you’re trying to introduce your kids to gaming while looking to save a few bucks, this is a good choice.

#9 – Horipad FPS Plus

When playing intense shooters like Overwatch or Call of Duty, it’s important to keep your thumbs comfortable or you may leave marks from your thumbsticks. If you’re the kind of player that loves playing shooters, you may want to look into the Horipad FPS Plus. While it does look a little more bloated than most PS4 controllers, the FPS Plus boasts great support in its thumbsticks, making it easier and comfortable to use. On top of that, it features a button that allows you to quickly adjust your camera’s sensitivity! Nifty!

#8 – Nacon Revolution Pro Controller 3

If you’re a PS4 owner but would rather be playing first person shooters with an XBox One controller then the Nacon Asymmetric Controller might be exactly what you’re looking for. The major changes from the typical PS4 Dual Shock is the placement of the left analogue stick, which is swapped with the D-Pad, and the trigger buttons, which are larger, deeper and angled off to the sides. The Revolution Pro 3 one of the most comfortable controllers we’re ever held and it comes with a long USB cable that should satisfy most setups.

#7 – Nacon Asymmetric Wireless Controller

Another Nacon controller, with a similar design to the Revolution in terms of asymmetry and button placement. This wireless option comes at a significant discount Unfortunately connecting the Nacon Asymmetric controller wirelessly isn’t as seamless as you might expect, and it comes with a USB dongle. It has a longer than average battery life, but this comes at the cost of motion controls, so only pick this guy up if you play predominantly shooters.

#6 – Thrustmaster eSwap Pro Controller

Branded as the most versatile controller on the market, the eSwap Pro Controller lets gamers swap out entire modules of the controller for variants, and allowing anyone to easily create a fully customized control system. This controller is definitely heavier than most other PS4 controllers but honestly we like the extra heft. The price point will also set you back more than its competitors, so only pick this one up if you expect to take full advantage of the interchangeable parts.

#5 – Sony DualShock 4 Wireless Controller

Sony hasn’t done much to change the design of their signature DualShock controllers, but when it comes to the DualShock 4, the company has put a bigger emphasis on style than they did in the past. In addition to standard colors and patterns – blue, red, white, camo, etc., Sony has launched more vibrant styles like Rose Gold, Berry Blue, Alpine Green, and Goku Or—I MEAN “Sunset Orange”! BUUUUT, if you got a little extra cash lying around you may be on the hunt for something a little more special like the PlayStation 20th Anniversary controller.

#4 – Razer Raiju Tournament Edition

This controller is a fantastic mix of high-end build quality and pro features. You can use the controller both wired and wireless via bluetooth but the real feature here is the easy to use button mapping software. Install the Razer app on your iOS or Android phone and you can easily remap the button and triggers, including their sensitivity and functionality. This can be really useful in games like Fortnite or Destiny 2 where you have multiple abilities or functions and want to give the ones you use just that much more accessible. Overall the Razer Raiju Tournament Edition has that heft we love and is more well suited to adults and adult sized hands.

#3 – Astro C40 TR

Not every game utilizes a decent control scheme, and for some players, that can be a real problem. If you’re one of these players, there’s no need for dismay as the folks at Astro Gaming have developed a controller to make your life easier! The Astro C40 TR offers plenty of options so you may control your games better. Along with mappable back paddles, users can swap out thumbsticks and D-pads, giving you more ways to play with a layout that suits you. And if that isn’t enough to sweeten the deal, it holds a whopping twelve-hour battery life! Just save up a little before you go dropping money for it.

#2 – Nacon Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller

Some players have a hard time grasping the analog stick, forcing them to use the D-pad, and D-pads aren’t always the most comfortable buttons. But fear not, D-pad users – there’s a controller for you, too! Behold, the Nacon Revolution Unlimited Pro! Yes, it’s a mouthful and a bit chunky in design, but this controller is perfect for those who can’t get away from the D-pad. Not only is it easy on the thumbs, but it is omnidirectional, too, making it easier for players to make inputs. This might be a good option for those of you who spend a lot of time playing fighting games, but struggle with analog sticks.

#1 – SCUF Vantage 2

We’re not gonna sugarcoat this one boys and girls; if you want the best, you gotta pay for it. The SCUF Vantage 2 has everything you need, high performance grip, customizable trigger buttons, control remapping and the highest quality build on the market. Optional rear paddles give extra access to the main buttons if you feel the need to keep both fingers on the analogue sticks while pulling off additional maneuvers and this is especially good for fighting games with complex combos. You can even open it up and take out the vibration modules to lighten the load if you don’t use the feedback and plan on playing for a longer session. These guys retail for about 150 – 200 bucks US, but if you’ve got the coin, this is our absolute recommendation.
