Using a controller

I use a keyboard primarily for gaming but I need a controller for playing games like dark souls or other games that utilize controllers better. Any suggestions? Please take into account durability and price .

If your using Windows 10, I would use a Xbox or PS4 controller.

I personally really like the Switch Pro controller but, the D-pad is a bit broken.

I also have an Xbox one controller which isn't bad but, I prefer the Switch controller.

 

If you have smaller hands I've heard good things about the Xbox one mini controller.

Love me some Xbox 360 controllers for 3D games. For 2D, I prefer Playstation style controllers because Xbox 360 DPads are garbage. If I'm playing N64 games or Gamecube games, I prefer to use the original controllers via adapters.

 

For about the last year I've primarily been using this controller. It's cheap and works well. Only complaints are the DPad is a little sensitive and the A button's label has faded away, but for the price I won't actually complain about it. Quality seems to be fine, as it has survived, which I can't say for the three (more expensive) Logitech controllers I've owned. In my experience, they're garbage and I'd stay away.

The only controller outside of the Wii Remote that I've personally liked is the Xbox One controller.

I have 6 broken Xbox one controllers (note that they were used by a lot of people). I don’t believe in Xbox one controllers at all anymore. Even one of their chargers set on fire for me before so.

Six controllers? 

I know Xbox controllers aren't very durable, but that's still impressive.

I over exaggerated a little. More like 4 and the 5th has a messed up usb plug in.

I know of multiple controllers me or my brother owned - xbox 360 and xbox one controllers - that both went through literally thousands and thousands of hours of use (2000-4000 hours on 3-4 unique controllers). Not by me, but some controllers were treated poorly (stuff like throwing them, hard) and still never died. Been using xbox controllers since Halo 3 in 2007, at least for me they've been nothing but extremely reliable. Just thought I'd share my experience. I have since moved on from my gaming addiction and don't use them anywhere near as much, but I can say the controllers I owned were damn good.

You are either lucky or lying. I believe you if your talking about 360 controllers. I’ve even been sold broken Xbox 1 controllers

I have a Xbox 360 Gamepad, (Logitech) and it's really comfy. But i used PS4 controller for more time, and it's good but not on the level of the Xbox 360 Gamepad. Also the Gamepad is cheaper (Around 25$) when the PS4 controller costs 50-60$
