Sony PS VR Aim Controller

Sony's PlayStation VR Aim Controller makes me unreasonably excited for light gun games.

Microsoft Xbox Wireless Controller 2016, White

The Xbox One S might be impressive, but don't overlook the new Xbox Wireless Controller.

Microsoft Xbox Elite Controller

Its $150, £120 or AU$200 price tag certainly puts it in an exclusive class, but the Elite controller is one of the most customizable, comfortable and luxurious controllers we've ever used.

Samsung Wireless Gamepad

Fed up with your stupid fingers getting in the way of your games? Samsung's new Bluetooth Gamepad gets your digits out of the way -- and works with any Android phone.

Mad Catz C.T.R.L.i

A basic Xbox 360-style controller, the CTRLi is a well-weighted and comfortably shaped controller for iOS devices.

SteelSeries Stratus

The SteelSeries Stratus is the best-feeling and most versatile iOS game controller, but it's a lot to pay for an accessory.

Logitech PowerShell Controller + Battery

Logitech's first stab at an iOS game controller nails design and feel, but lacks flexibility or extra features.

Sony PlayStation Move Racing Wheel

Despite a couple of limitations, the Sony Move Racing Wheel performs well, delivering a good sense of steering a car in racing games, and is much easier to set up than a full racing wheel.

Duo Games Duo Pinball

Pinball Duo is a cute idea with little purpose for anyone, even hard-core pinball fans, especially at its high price. It's a one-trick plastic pony for one app.

Discovery Bay Games Duo Gamer Controller

The good news: the iPad has a game controller. The bad news: it only works with a few games. Meet the awkward Duo Gamer.

Ion Audio iCade Mobile

The iCade Mobile is a retro gaming oddity for the iPhone that adds physical buttons, but for a lofty $70 price. Its lack of universal compatibility, lack of analog sticks, and large size relegate it to strictly novelty status.

Razer Onza Tournament Edition

With its bevy of forward-thinking features and customization options, the Razer Onza Tournament Edition is easily one of the best third-party Xbox 360 controllers we've ever used.

Nyko Raven Alternative

Though the Nyko Raven PS3 controller provides an Xbox 360 controller configuration for the PS3, its unresponsive D-pad and bulky feel will have you looking elsewhere.

Xbox 360 Wireless Controller w/Transforming D-Pad and Play and Charge Kit

The Xbox 360 Wireless Controller with Transforming D-pad is a must-have for 360 gamers who demand a precise D-pad response.

Nintendo Wii Remote Plus White

For families and lovers of casual games, the still-affordable Wii represents the best console bundle value of the holiday season in terms of dollars spent; however, the Wii's getting long in the tooth, and other game consoles offer more entertainment options and functionality for their higher price tags.

Microsoft Kinect

With its impressive body tracking and unique, controller-free experience, Kinect is great for casual gaming parties and workouts--assuming you have enough room to play it.

Nyko Wand+ Clear

Nyko once again beats Nintendo to the punch by offering a two-in-one remote/MotionPlus design at the same price as an original Nintendo Wii remote controller.

Nyko Nintendo Wii TypePad Pro

As the first QWERTY Wii accessory we've seen, the Nyko TypePad Pro works well; however, we're not sure it's useful enough to justify its purchase.
