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.

Case: Fractal Design R4 \ PSU: Corsair TX-650 V2\ Mobo: Asrock Z75 Pro 3
Processor: Intel i5 3570K Stock
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600C9 (2x 4GB) \ Videocard: Gigabyte 7950 Windforce 3
SSD: Samsung 830 \ HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F1 500GB \ DVD-RW: 1x LG
Speakers: Logitech (2.1)\ Monitor: Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM
Keyboard: MS Comfort Curve\ Mouse: Logitech MX 518

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.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
