NINTENDO - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Awesome to the MAX! Well, maybe not that good...
The NES MAX Controller!

For those of us who couldn't save up enough lunch money to buy the NES Advantage (come on, did our parents really expect us to buy food with the cash?) there was the NES MAX controller. Though not as huge as the NES Advantage, nor heavy enough to bludgeon someone to death, the MAX still was a pretty cool controller. The 360 joypad was pretty unique at the time and was really fun to move around with your thumb, even though there were no real 8-bit games that supported true 360 turns. It also sported the ever-popular "turbo fire" buttons which could easily give you an advantage over your pals... pending you didn't tell them you were using it. Cheater.

Rumor has it that the NES MAX also functions as a makeshift boomerang, but I've yet to see any proof of this. And if you break yours in an attempt to test the boomerang theory, don't come crying back to me. It's not my problem.
