View Full Version : What's your Gamepad

I use an XBOX 360 controller for Windows. It's the best controller I've ever had on a PC. It's a must have if you play any console ports like GTA 4. I even played Fallout 3 with it. Aiming wasn't an issue because Fallout isn't a true FPS. You use V.A.T.S. most of the time.
I've never had to remap a button or reverse an axis. The onscreen icons you see in the game are the same as you'd see on a 360. If the game says to hit the red button than you hit the read button. No more of that push button 9 crap. :)
The 360 controller is pretty good, but I'm still a fan of using my PS1/PS2 controller via a USB adapter on the PC.

Black Wireless Xbox 360 Pad... For, surprisingly enough, my Xbox 360!
I do love the DualShock 2 & the PAL SNES controller (I can't remember if the NTSC was any different though).

lol i'm using a who knows how many years old gravis gamepad pro. :bigthumb:
looks like an old ps1 controller and i love it. i've been playing nhl08 of late and it does all i need it to. i cant stand those other controllers anyway. i dont need a crapload of buttons.
hehe i've cannibalized many other controllers to keep this one alive. by now i could prolly build my own if i needed to. :lol:
Only gamepad I ever used on the PC was the first Gravis one. The one that looked like a SNES controller. A friend of mine later bought one of those Gravis ones Jedi uses...
I don't really play games that require gamepads (on the PC that is). Even GTA4 I'm sure is way easier to control with keyboard/mouse, especially the on foot/shooting stuff. Cars are fine too, but planes and helicopters, I still have to find a good keycombo for those. I have a workable one in SA, but it's far from perfect...
I used to have a 360 controller, but my friend borrowed it and never gave it back... He doesn't seem to know where it is now.
I haven't really needed a gamepad for my PC, so I haven't been too concerned.
