To be honest in my opinion the original MD/Genesis controllers are best unless you play Street Fighter 2 in that case you might want to find a 3rd party six button controller.If i was you i would just take those controllers apart and clean the black part of the rubber membranes under the buttons and D-pad.Normally i would use a contact or switch cleaner on the underside of the membranes with the black rubbery contacts and rub them on white paper,you will see the black streaks on the paper from the carbon deposits as you rub.You can also rub them on the paper dry.

Hi Guys,

My parents came to visit me the other day and brought round my old Mega Drive with games which I completely forgot I still had, I've hooked it up to my HDTV using the SCART slot, it's not the best picture/sound quality and it's not as good as I remember it being, but that could be nostalgia fogging my mind.

I have two controllers, and I don't know if its because they have been sitting in a box unused for what must be more than a decade now, but they seem very stiff. I have a Sega controller, with a red start button, the a b c buttons work fine but the dpad is quite stiff and hard to use, I also have a competition pro controller which has a nice loose dpad but the b button needs to be pressed really hard in order for it to work.

My question is, what are the best types of controllers to buy? I really would like to start playing it again but I can't at the moment because the controllers are just so hard to use.

So yeah which are the best controllers?
