Controller

The problem that nobody else has brought up is that it won't improve immersion, but lessen it.

Some love it, some say it's ridiculous, but although I liked it at first, I now have no interest in actually using it. Holding a gamecube controller, you get involved in the game world because you just sit there and move your physical body around hardly at all. This makes you feel like your movement is wholly within the game world and thus your agency feels more present there.

If you're waving a stick around to control your avatar, you're always going to notice it more and thus not be as immersed in the fictional world of the game.
