Which Controller do you Prefer for PC Gaming?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It's very rare that I use a controller but GTA 5 when flying is when I need one most. I have a Scuf for Xbox One but the Triggers don't work since I have trigger stops. I also have a Dualshock 4 PS4 controller but I'm unsure of what software to use so if you could recommend that I'd really appreciate it. But which controller do you prefer to use for PC gaming?

 

btw Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

I just use my PS3 controller, but if I were to 'upgrade' to something I would probably go with an Xbox 360 or One controller (I don't really like the PS4's analog thumb sticks).

 

Heard the DS4 controller support is pretty nice

To save hassle probably 360 or XBone controller. That and they are a bit more comfy compared to PS3/4. Though I prefer PlayStation

For the longest time it's been the XB360 controller, however since like a year ago it is the XB1 controller.

But what about flying? GTA, and Racing games are the only games I use a controller in. And I only use it in GTA for flying because I hate flying with the keyboard.

For me, Xbox 360 controller is my best bet.(And yeah,flying (and driving) with keyboard really sucks like you say)

When lives hand you lemon, suck them hard and post a selfie with it.

Nothing comes close to the Dualshock 4 on PC. At least as far as plain controllers go. It's comfortable, it works over bluetooth right out of the box, it doesn't need AA batteries, the touchpad is super handy when you're on the couch, and programs like InputMapper or DS4Windows give it customization and functionality beyond any other controller out there.

Third person action? I've heard Devil May Cry is soooo good on keyboard, and so is Dark Souls.

Ooh, and platforming with a keyboard, now that's the best, what with how precise WASD is for fine movement. It's great for fighting games, too! WASD makes those DP motions so easy, never mind pulling off standing 720s!

Keyboard/mouse is fine for RTS, MOBAs, FPS and some MMOs, but it simply has no place outside of that, just like controllers have no place in those aforementioned genres. Everything has it's place.
