Retro, chic, stupid, fashionable, all of the above? The JC-U1906T gamepad from Elecom is essentially all of that. It has a nice NES controller feel but with worse buttons that seem to be labeled in some kind of unknown language. The only buttons that are understandable are "Auto" and "Clear" and everyone knows those buttons are crucial for PC gaming. This might be a good pad if you are a emulator whore who really needs to feel retro-like, but for anyone else, just stick to a traditional gamepad, or better yet, the Xbox 360 controller.
