If you’re hanging out with someone and they’ve got nothing but shitty third-party controllers, get the hell out of there while you can. Having a budget controller for the odd time a friend comes over (because you’re a real gamer and don’t have enough friends to warrant the extra $20 on a brand-name accessory) is fine. Having nothing but janky third-party equipment and using it yourself to play your games is proof that you have no respect for your experience and absolutely no respect for the medium.
