Mostly for 2D games (Rogue Legacy, Rayman Origins, various... games which are for other platforms...), but also for some 3D games such as Batman Arkham Asylum/City.
How are the Logitech gamepads? I've heard mostly good things, but some negative reviews complain about the shoulder buttons and the joysticks.

D-Pad aside, can't go wrong with the Xbox360 controller. I'd say get one of those over a Logitech.

Play-test

controller preferences differ by individual as they do for mouse/keyboard and any input device.

Thing is, the D-Pad is very important for me

didn't they update the dpad for 360 controllers? get one of those, it's literally the same thing. you'll need the wireless adapter too, play n charge won't work

Why not use a Dualshock 3?

I like Dualshock, however they are quite expensive. If there aren't any better gamepads that are the same price or less, I might as well go with one.

I don't think you'll find a better gamepad for $40 or less, although I admit it's not my area of expertise.

I really like using the PSP-2000's DPAD for 2D games. It's not perfect but not bad either. If you have one; get FUSA on it and windows will detect it as a gamepad.

PS3 is my choice, although I already had 3 of those controllers sitting around so I didn't have to buy anything. I might still have went with that though, since IMO it's the pinnacle of controller design (minus the non-replaceable battery.)
