Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

Decades of consoles and peripherals have given us a pile of play styles to get comfortable with, and even if there's nothing suited to your tastes in there, modifying a shoe box isn't out of the question. That wealth of options allows for a diverse range of personal tastes though, and it'd be neat to see where the hearts (and thumbs) of Joystiq readers prefer to roam.

Personally, I haven't found anything that beats the Super Nintendo's layout. There are enough buttons to allow for reasonably-complex gameplay, but nothing feels obnoxiously out of reach or uncomfortable to use. Its shape also didn't dig into my palms like the NES' pad did, making stints of Super Mario World less about comfort and more about the Koopa Kids' life expectancy.

That's me, though. What's the best controller you've ever used? Are you partial to a particular edition of the DualShock, or does the Power Pad have your adoration to this day? Sound off on your favorite controllers, right after you check this week's Japanese hardware sales after the break!
