After more than 10 years of faithful service, my Afterglow wired 360 (which was a hilariously gaudy thing that I didn’t realize lit up…I bought it on sale at Best Buy) has finally had its last rodeo. The plastic thumbstick under the grip (the originally grips have long since worn away) fell off while simply trying to get on my horse in Odyssey. Rather said that such a prosaic thing would be this battered controller’s last gasp, after surviving so many boss fights and driving games where I worried I’d break off a thumb controller stem inadvertently.
So. I need a new wired USB 360 controller. Searching on Amazon yields mixed results, because every controller seems to have equal measures good and terrible reviews sitting cheek by jowl. I’d like to see if anyone here has a controller they absolutely love.
