    I just purchased a Raspberry Pi revB

    I Want to play old NES and SNES games (eventually sega and Atari…)

    But in regards to old NES and SNES games.
    Which controllers should I use.

    Should I purchase a USB NES controller. OR wire an original NES controller using the GPIO?

    I cannot find on google info regarding using a 3rd party USB NES controller. When I search I find problems with the D-Pad, arrows not working.

    But if I wire my original NES controller to the raspberry pi, it will look cluttered with the external GPIO…

    I’ve been reading about the NES/SNES controller since evening, its now 2am and I have a headache and am no closer to deciding.
