Hey, I want to get back into Emulators but I absolutley hate playing on a keyboard.

Really I want to be playing SNES, NES, PSX and N64 games, what's the best option for me? Cheers!

Or alternatively a Logitech Rumblepad 2 with Xpadder.

Sure it works but not quite as well for the DS because some games also havily use the stylus for control making it hard to effectively control such a game.

Any PS1 - PS2 like controller should work, since they have a d-pad and the usual buttons.
#EDIT: Yes, for DS a controller won't help for the Stylus part. XD

I do remember from the ePSXe board some input problems with those that used converters/adapters. Might be just a few that gives problems or something.

Anyhow, long ago I bought an El-Cheapo USB Dual-Shock controller for $10 that works perfectly (except rumble outside of WindowsXP) for PSX for example, since it has "full range" for the analogs.

It's easier when playing DS games to use a Keyboard + Mouse combination than a Controller + Mouse combination.
In fact Keyboard + Mouse can even prove preferable to using an actual DS with stylus in some games, at least that's been my experience.

Cheap: Air Hogs Flight Simulator controller (A PS1 controller without rumble. Nice and light. $10 with "simulator".)
My choice: Logitech Dual Action USB (a PS2 controller without vibration motors, essentially. $30 if you find it at the right place.)
Best: PS3 controller with the right adapter (USB on one end, USB type A on the other. $??)

Also, could you please include what console? A PS1 controller would be useless for a N64 game.

SHODDY POS.
Low build quality, Axis's are reset using rubber bands rather then a centering mechanism, Typically has issues in games and emulators after a period of time as the axis's wear down.

Yeah the Dual Action has a bad rep, the Rumblepad 2 is far better build quality and not that much more expensive.
