The Playstation controller, especially the Dual Shock controller from the PS4, is my preferred controller. It has a typical 4 action buttons layout which uses symbols to identify each button.
I've developed muscle memory for I expect each button typically do which makes switching between Playstation and Nintendo games a bit of a pain since they have the confirm/decline button switched from each other. Fortunately, each offers to let you remap the behavior for it. While this work for system settings, each game might have a different behavior assigned to each button so I normally try to map them all into a consistent behavior. My typical button configuration is as follows:
△ - heavy hit/special attack/switch characters
O - normal hit
X - jump/OK/confirm
▢ - cancel/decline/action
R1 - dash/evade
Controllers from Nintendo, Microsoft Xbox and Google Stadia use alphanumerical values (A, B, X, Y) for their buttons. While XBox and Stadia have the same button names, Nintendo has a different layout which means that I never remember which is the A & B and which is the X & Y.
