Don't get me wrong, I love the N64. It's one of my favorite game systems. However, if I could have one complaint, it would definitely be the controller design. The design was perfectly usable, but I just didn't understand why Nintendo felt it necessary to include 3 grips instead of just 2. We're not 3-handed aliens, so how are we expected to use 3 grips? The d-pad above the left grip (though I NEVER had to use it) could easily be moved above the joystick so that only 2 grips were required.
