Do gamers that play on PC use contrllers like the xbox 360 one,

for example if i were to build a gaming pc, i think i would feel berry uncomftable with the mouse and keyboard.


also if there is, can you link me to a couple of good ones.

Hello !

To answer your question, it depends. I, for one, prefer a keyboard/mouse combo when I play games on my computer and a controller when I'm on my Xbox 360.

My reason is simply that PC games (or PC versions of games) are usually designed with a keyboard/mouse in mind, so if you try to hook up a controller, it can make the gameplay harder.

As for good controllers...go with the Xbox 360 Controller for Windows. You can't go wrong with that.

I hope this helped,

Just go with XBOX 360 controllers. There are cable & wireless. Please be careful when you buy the wireless version because an XBOX 360 wireless controller for PC should have a USB wireless dongle with it. Some wireless XBOX controllers do not have because they are intended for XBOX which already have built in wireless receiver.

XBOX Controllers are comfortable for sandbox or platform games ( a lot of jumping like Prototype, Assassins Creed, Avatar) and RPG's like Skyrim.
But its not good for shooter ( left for dead, crysis, dead space ) due to loose control & difficulty to aim. Mouse & keypad are best for these kinds of games.

I didn't like flying in BF 3 with the keyboard, especially the helicopter, its not for just flight sim. Was just my input on the subject that even though its not a "xbox" style controller, it can still be used as one. Interesting enough the x52 will work on the ps3, but some buttons are off.

Just for fun I actually mapped the x52 for minecraft, so it will work for any ps3/xbox game on the pc.
