Best controller for PC games right now?

#1Undead587Posted 7/22/2014 7:04:43 AM
I haven't used a controller in a while on my PC. I recently got a few games that would be much easier to play with a controller, though. Back in the day, the 360 controller was great. I don't have a functional 360 controller anymore, though. I do have a PS3 controller, but I dunno how well that would work.

So, what's the best controller right now? Is the xbone controller better than the 360 controller?

360 controller is still the best. PS4 controller is second. Then Xbone.

Don't even consider the PS3 controller. It's trash.

Don't get why people like the 360 controller more than the x1 controller, x1 controller is sexy. That being said, personally I'd just grab a Logitech F310. inexpensive, well built, and fully programmable, i'm a big fan of mine.

my old 360 controller from gamestop was on it's last legs. BTW DO NOT BUY A GAMESTOP BRAND 360 CONTOLLER!!!!

anyways it was on it's last legs so I just recently bought a new official xbox controller at best buy after price matching it for like 30 bucks. I feel that controller is the best one to use for 3d games.

But for 2d platformers I use Nintendo's classic controlle connected via Bluetooth and using the program glovepie. Now you have to make your own scripts but I find no controller is better for 2d platformers.

A buddy of mine swears by his ps4 controller on his pc. You just have to have Bluetooth and 3d party drivers to get it to work. Although we couldn't get two of them to work.

Xbone controller has trash triggers. The better DPad doesn't really matter to me, since the DPad is basically irrelevant and has been for a long time.

*shrug* Triggers on the x1 controller felt great to me, preference I suppose.

I have no issue with the XBone Triggers. And the DPAD is a huge deal if you play 2D games on it or like paying any fighters on PC and prefer DPAD as well.

I'm going to Side with the Xbone Controller as well. Been using it recently and I love it.

I hate the new X1 controller so 360 controller is still the best for me
I do not like the triggers and the sticks feel much more loose than the 360's.
