Good USB controllers?

#1AiphremPosted 10/16/2013 7:04:37 AM
I wanna get a USB controller my PC, since there are a lot of games that suck with keyboard controls (Been playing Dust, I'm much rather be playing this with a controller...). What are some good PC controllers you would recommend? I was thinking of getting the official Xbox 360 controller for the PC, but if there are some cheaper, maybe bettter ones I'd like to hear about them.

I would definitely go with an X360 controller.

Definitely go with the Xbox 360 controller.

The wired version does not have to be "For Windows" FYI. The regular wired 360 controllers are the exact same thing.

I also got the wired 360 controller. It's cheap and games made for it recognize it instantly.

Yeah, can't go wrong with the 360 for newer games. I hate the sticks / buttons so I replaced mine with some metal ones from Modsticks.

I use retro-usb game pads for older games (emulation; I'm a pirate).

It pains me to say this, but go to walmart and pick up a 360 wired controller for $29.99.... the only thing I go there for is this.

The Logitech F510 is fantastic, but it's been discontinued for no apparent reason. The Logitech F310 should also be great, but it doesn't have rumble if I remember correctly.
