Hey all! Was hoping we could all share our picks for best controller (wired or wireless!) for the NES Classic.

I've done quite a bit of research myself, and while the standard NES Classic controller that comes with the unit is ideal, the 3' cord that comes with it is NOT. :)

At any rate, in my travels these are my picks for best wired and best wireless (bluetooth) controllers for the NES Classic:

Best Wired controller: Orzly RetroPad
Best Wireless controller: 8Bitdo NES30
