There are a huge number of controllers that you can use on PC, either supported natively or with 3rd party programs like DS4Windows. I've only ever used an Xbox 360, so I was wondering what you guys prefer.

There is no best controller. There's a best controller for you... or for the situation, or both...

Best controller for Racing games: Logitech G27 (because I have one)
Best controller for Flight/Space combat games: Saitek X-55 HOTAS (because I have one)
Best controller for Twin stick shooters: Xbox 360 controller (you know the drill by now)
Best controller for games that don't normally support controllers: Steam Controller
Best controller for VR games: HTC Vive wands
Best controller for anything else? TBD

True, it's a situation of best controllers.

But this usually comes up with people saying, "Hay, can I bai dis Sanyocon (fictional generic Chinese-sounding brand) for $0.99 and plae gaemz gud?" Or they're console owners who don't own an XBONE (rightfully so) and want to know if they can use their console's controller on PC too.

Xbox controllers are great. They are the only good thing to come out of MS' Games Division.
Steam controllers are great.
Specialty controllers like racing wheels, fighting sticks, Hydras, etc. are great.

Well I use controllers for 2-D games, 3rd Person action games, Racing games, and of course Emulation. Which of these controllers has a good D-Pad? (Excluding the 360 one, of course. We already know that one has a horrible D-pad. Don't care for the bumpers on it, either. Too spongy feeling.)

They all have good analogues and serviceable buttons and triggers. But only the ds4 has a good dpad. Therefore ds4 wins if you will use your controller for any 2d /scrollers /platformers/ fighters. Overall ds4 is best. If you will only use your controller for certain games or situations then another controller may be slightly better but a ds4 would still be a great choice.. Where as I would never even touch any Xbox or steam controller with a 2d platformer like odallus or fighter like guilty gear xrd

I imagine steam controller would be best with RTS games.
