I use a 360 controller for everything except RTS & FPS, or anything that requires precise aim.

I used the MS xbox controller for windows for FIFA and other sports games. That's it.

yes it's probably the best controller for pc

Whats the difference between the xbox 360 controller for windows and just the standard xbox 360 controller?

For the wireless version: The one for windows is packaged with a wireless adapter
For the wired version: Absolutely nothing.

To answer the OP, more often than not I do.

O I see. THen I don't get why Microsoft has to confuse consumers with a PC version of the wired xbox 360 controller.

Some of them, yes. Racing games, Dark Souls, Devil May Cry, Castlevania: LoS and other games that require analog sticks.

Most games aside from shooters and obviously M&K PC games like strategy games, yes I do. I also enjoy my fanatec racing wheel from time to time.

yes, for platformers, racing games and the like. honestly i don't use m&k for much outside of fps/tps/rts. i also have a couple arcade sticks i use for any games that seem appropriate.

I use a controller for everything PC gaming related. If it's not a wired Xbox 360 controller (the wireless ones eat batteries and tend to turn themselves off to save power every 15 minutes), it's my Hydra. And if a game doesn't support a controller natively, I MAKE it support the controller with Xpadder.

PC gaming has never been better!

Only peasants who are too poor to buy a controller use those obsolete business devices that come with their PCs (the typewriter and desk-bound pointer) to play games. >_>

Depends on the game...
Controllers feel better on platformers, action adventure, beat'em'up and some 3rd person shooters...

For me, I like using a controller for Prototype, Deadpool, Metal Gear Revengence and Solid, Silent Hill, DmC, Dark Souls 1 and 2, and Saint's row 4.
