The controller is very comfortable to hold and allows you to play for hours without tiring your hands. The controller's shape is well-designed, the buttons are well positioned and not slippery. This is one of the reasons, the Xbox 360 controller has been the first go-to for many experienced gamers. Compared to the wireless option, this controller is lighter and less bulky, since it doesn't have a battery pack at the back of the controller. On the contrary, since it's wired, it does have a limited range. This means you can not move very far from the screen. See More
There is a large supply of these Xbox 360 controllers on the second-hand market. This is an easy way to get them for a much lower price, especially since many people don't care about price they sell it at or just aren't aware of the value of this controller. See More
The buttons are overall well-positioned and you don't have to reach for any of them. Compared to the older Xbox 360 controller, the buttons are also very crisp and clicky, at the same time making less noise. None of the buttons are slippery, while some of them even have rubber padding on them. See More
The controller feels very solid in hand - it doesn't give you a feeling that it could break. The shape is comfortable for longer playing sessions, even for people with bigger hands. At the same time it's noticeably lighter than the old Xbox 360 controller. See More
they lasted me about a year with light use but one time i got a little too into a very close rocket league game and squeezed the right shoulder buttons a little too hard and it broke but to be clear, not harder than on any other controller i've ever had and these are the first controllers i've ever had break on me. had it happen on two different 8bitdo nes30 pro controllers. i am kind of bummed about it since aside from that it was a great controller and i really liked the style.

Josh Strawbridge's Experience
If you are playing less demanding and simplistic 2D games, a simple remote with only a few clickable buttons does a great job. There are enough buttons for all the actions in the game, and no distracting sticks for movement in a 3D environment. For some it may even be more comfortable to use than the modern console controllers. See More
