I got the Logitech F310 and I can say it works pretty well. The sticks are a little stiff but that's my only complaint. Just make sure to have the latest xbox 360 drivers installed to make it an easy ordeal when hooking it up the first time.

Wired 360 controller is the only choice. Instant drivers and most games are literally made for it.

By most I mean any game made for PC in like the last 4 years.

Get a wired 360 controller.
It is a well made controller, you don't have to fiddle with drivers and many newer games automatically change their in game icons and such to match the 360 controller's buttons.


Yep, great controller. I just bought one today, and so far it works with everything I've tried it on, hassle free.

The xbox 360 wireless controller needs a wireless adapter to work in PC, and that is like another $40, so you should cross that off your list.

You can't use a play and charge kit to use it with cable, it just doesn't work.


The wireless 360 controller w/ the adapter is currently $39 on Amazon:

But how much less could you care?

I have a wired 360 controller and a Dualshock 4. I primarily use the 360 controller, and use the DS4 for old gamers that use the D pad a lot, and for local multiplayer.

Both are great. I'd recommend the 360 controller first though.

Get a PS3 controller. You can wire it up to recharge it so you don't have to replace batteries. You can play with it wirless. and it's only $35 on Amazon.

It also has a good dpad for fighters, platformers and 2D games. And by using Xinput Wrapper it is just as compatible as an Xbox 360 controller.


I probably agree with this.

Stop wasting your time looking at other overpriced, inferior controllers and buy this wired 360 gamepad for $21:

I use a Dual Shock 4 controller. Some guy modified the DS3's xinput wrapper to work with the DS4, and I find the controller much more comfortable. Bluetooth also works pretty well for me (on Windows 8.1)
