9. Neo Geo/AES

Pros: For a nearly $700 system, we’d better get a beast of controller. Fortunately, the Neo Geo piece worthy—it was a pure gamer’s controller, with no gimmicks or fluff. It was clicky, precise, and detail-oriented. And it just FELT right.
Cons: In order to have the privilege of using this controller, there was the small matter of a $650 entrance fee to get the Neo Geo. Most people, unsurprisingly, opted to just enjoy the Neo Geo via multi-title arcade cabinets.
