The playstation one is a prototype and would probably have been on far with the n64 one for ease of use.
This Saturn one looks comfy as hell and I already have the mayflash for it. Does anyone know if it has triggers as well?
Seriously though modern controllers I feel all have an issue to varying degrees with sudden shifts across and axis a la a charge character in Street Fighter. Due to the fact that the angle you're holding it will probably cause some disconnect between where you think you are and where it actually is. I saw the Steam controller settings having a term for it and a setting to correct it by varying amounts.
But that thing blew too.
D-pads are where it's at. It's Not like you can use both simultaneously unless you use some sort of claw grip. In the PSBONE era the d-pad was made mostly irrelevant except for some menu stuff and it was used neatly in dark souls but you could have easily done that with the n64 controller, they're just reversed.
I feel like the n64 controller gets flack because it's a 3d controller even though every brand has it's issues. It was also one of the earliest controllers trying to adapt to 3d gaming, and Nintendo has this thing where they want to look different than everybody else. It's kind of a double edged sword and it's evident in all their critical successes and failures.
