I don’t get why it’s asymmetrical with the positions of the sticks but if you like/are used to the XBox controller then why not. The standard switch controllers are similar to PlayStation VR controllers which I don’t like fiddling with outside a VR environment.
They’re pricey, but 100% worth it. It’s one of the most solidly constructed controllers I’ve ever owned. My only gripe with it is that the triggers are digital. I have a growing number of racing games on the Switch, and not having analog triggers is becoming a slight pain. The D-pad isn’t the best Nintendo has ever made, but it’s good. I’m having issues with one of my Joy cons where it disconnects, so having a pro controller is a worth while option.
You might even want to look into the newer PowerA controllers. They’re about half the price of the pro controller and are decent. Not the old ones that came out at the beginning of the Switch’s life though. The newer controllers have programmable buttons on the back. It’s a big improvement over PowerA’s first controller design and looks very similar to the official Pro controller. The D-pad is near perfect too. Only real complaint from me is that they’re way too light weight. I would definitely recommend putting small weights inside the handle of the controllers if you can manage it.
