In the plot, the mc gets transported into a video game he had played a lot in his childhood, and that there was a special controller the mc bought in order to play the game and activate skills. The main thing I remember about the plot was that the mc takes over the body of a villager npc girl's brother, who is a famous adventurer. In the beginning arc, when he found out he took over that character, he immediately goes to a dungeon where the main character's team was about to open a sealed door containing the demon lord. He then stops them from opening it. Not sure if I am right, but I think I also remember reading about the fact that the mc gets a cheat regarding the controller he used when he was playing the game.

    I'm guessing it's not Time Stop Hero, as while it is an isekai manga where the MC has a game controller, he appears to have retained his own body, rather than being reincarnated as an NPC's brother. Apr 7, 2022 at 20:37

    Yeah, it isn't. The mc used the controller in game to perform something called an arts skill I think and was the only character experienced enough of the party to do a double arts skill using the controller, when he transmigrated into the game world.

    Also remembered reading that the game the mc played had tons of routes for the party. It was kind of like xenoblade chronicles.

This is I'm Not the Hero!, also identified here:

"Reincarnated as a sub-character of a video game that I used to play!?" After saving a girl and then getting run over by a car in the process, "I" was reincarnated as "Rex" in a video game world. Rex is handsome and has skills in all fields, but he is a helper character in the early stages. Though Rex has a high level, balanced skill set, and multitude of abilities…He's useless in the later stages of the game!!

The special controller is this:

Pay to win

However, if it has more of a role in the story, it hasn't happened yet. I don't know a good way to check the source novel.

The first thing he does is stop the hero's party from opening a door that would unleash a sealed demon, which would destroy a nearby town. Which gets destroyed anyway. He goes towards it and finds a girl who calls him brother.
