What's the best video game controller of them all? You could probably make a case for many of them. It's a very subjective question, but you have to imagine Sony's various iterations of the DualShock would be in the running, given it's a design the company has reused multiple times. For our money, though, the DualSense is probably the best Sony has ever produced — but how does it stack up against other platforms?

Well, if you ask the public, apparently very favourably. BAFTA Games recently held a tournament to find the best controller ever, pitting various pads from throughout the years against each other in a number of Twitter polls. In the end, it came down to the DualSense vs. the DualShock 2, and the PlayStation 5 controller prevailed:

Yes, the DualSense was crowned the greatest controller ever by public vote. That's a pretty great endorsement for the pad, and we'd say it's a deserving winner. There are many fantastic controllers, but DualSense's haptic feedback and adaptive triggers push it over the edge, and the physical design is an improvement on the DualShock in basically every way.

Anyway, do you agree? Is the DualSense overall the best controller? Have your say in the comments section below.
