The Atari 5200 controller was just a failure overall. The design was horrible, the joystick was meant to be held in your hand, but there were easy to press buttons on the side that got accidentally pressed all the time. The number pad was worthless, because you actually had to take your hand off of the stick to use it. The thing that made this the worst of all time was that they were known for breaking. I doubt you could find one 5200 controller in the world that is not broken, or has not been broken at some point.
