Playing ANY [game on keyboard+mouse is] just absolutely terrible.

Fixed.

Troll confirmed.

If I make a topic with the expectation that people are going to come in and have interesting/helpful recommendations, and instead someone comes in just to say playing MMO's on a gamepad sucks, I think I'm well within my rights to offer a rebuttal.

I have a hard time wanting to get into a super-hero themed game. Maybe I'll try Vindictus.

What about games with deep dungeons-like places, and an involved stat system? (Not DDO though, I can't stand anything that's even remotely based on D&D 3.5).

Your options for gamepad mmos are very limited. There is dc universe, and vindictus. For a 2d option you have dungeon fighter(might require xpadder) if you want to try a subscription based mmo your option is FFXI.

In general though controllers and MMOs don't go together. With a program like xpadder you can get it working but you would be better off with something like a razer nostromo

I wish there were more decent MMOs that didn't require a million hotkeys. Something simple that a gamepad would be fine for. I tried Vidictus with my gamepad and there are a couple unmappable controls due to the way the game is setup. You could probably manage but I found it too annoying and just ended up going back to k/m.

Rainbow Dash is best pony. The only arguement I will accept is for Twilight Sparkle.

I wouldn't call any of the combat in these MMO's "complex."

People don't play WoW because it has amazingly complex combat.

Yeah, I know. This is why The Legend of Zelda is constantly lambasted as the worst ARPG ever produced. Damn simple combat. Why can't it have 257 hotkey functions?

The combat in MMOs IS simple, it's just not streamlined for gamepads.

1. Having a billion actions at your finger-tips does not necessarily make a game complex.
2. A Ps3/360-style gamepad has plenty of functions to allow robust gameplay.
