High Quality Gamepad for some gaming?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi, im looking for a gamepad to do some leisurely stuff, ill still play battlefield with KB+M but i feel a little bit like a handicapped person in some games, can anyone recommend a good gamepad, wireless is preferred but not totally necessary. i want to make sure there's nothing better out there before i get an Xbox 360 controller. Looks Matter.

Thanks.

Designed just like the DualShock controller. Best design I have ever seen IMO.

The Microsoft 360 Xbox pads are the best I have used so far. Also games easily recognize it.

They're the most uncomfortable gamepads I have EVER used. I don't see how people can use them unless they have small hands and/or short fingers. Cause there is just no room and the design is just plain uncomfortable compared to dualshock.

Stick placement on DS really sucks, as do lack of triggers.

I started pc gaming on a controller and I am still getting used to certain keyboard controls, however, I would rather use the keyboard and mouse over a controller anyday. KB+mouse beats a controller always. It is just better. Besides, what is the point of pc gaming if you dont even use the pc peripherals?

Switch some controls around in bf, I know they are wierd and I have to remap things, and customize it to your liking. Just my opinion. In 4 years I've become A giant pc gaming and a huge hater of everything console. Worth it.

Stick placement is beautiful on DS. Stick placement sucks on Xbox and GC controllers, my hands start hurting after using those. And what do triggers have to do with anything? The only thing triggers are used for are racing games. Triggers for shooters = you will get owned 100% of the time if you are against someone using normal buttons.
