Default Need a N64-style gamepad

I'm looking for a USB gamepad that resembles the old Nintendo 64 controller.

Any recommendations?

You could buy a n64 gamepad adapter and a n64 controller if you don't already have one.

something like this N64/PSX USB Adapter: Jandaman's Import Video Game Accessories

just google n64 usb adapter/converter and maybe try ebay.

Is that really my best option?

Maybe there is a one that would be a good substitute then... because I'd rather not use an adapter.

Hello Aether,

I have not seen any PC Gamepads that look like a N64 controller in many years. You would have to get one from eBay if they even were still around. Other than that your best option will be the converter.

Cheers,
Mak
