Default Gamepads

Do you own a gamepad(controller) for your PC?

Also if you have one which games and how many do you use it for?

NEVER! Keyboards are so much better for playing games on. I cant stand gamepads for PC's. If you want gamepads buy a console..

Default Re: Gamepads

I do have a gamepad...rather cheap, it came with Rayman 3....I never completed that game... Might do actually, but I wouldn't use the controller.

I also use it for some emulators which I don't want to use the keyboard for, and some older ported games. That kind of thing. Ones that were meant for a joypad.

I use my gamepad for all my emulators. I tried to use it for halo, but i didn't like it. When I play FPS (First person shooters) on my PS2 with a controller it's fine, but when i play FPS on the computer with a gamepad it just feels weird.

Yes, it is a must for gamers. I recommend Logitech RumblePad 2.
