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.
