What's a good PC controller that isn't the overpriced Xbox One and PS4 controller? I just want to play Rocket League senpai.
>>
xbox one is hands down the best controller i've ever held in my hands
>>
search for them on Aliexpress, they lack the branding and are usually less than half as expensive
>>
xbox 360 controller most comfortable
ps3 controller most compatible, works with linux and os x ootb and with a single driver/exe with windows as well. runs wired and wireless at the same time, btw
>>
>>71390743
they are shit, bruh. the sticks will always suck.
>>
>>71390751
also android (and maybe iOS as well?)
>>
>>71390728
This
The Xbox One controller and the Xbox 360 controller before it remain unmatched for a PC controller, I had my wired Xbox 360 controller since 2006 and it got replaced just recently with a Xbone one
If you decide you really can't get any of the above there is ones like the Logitech F310 which support xinput
>>
got the gamesir g4s since fuck who knows, still works to this day

dont get ps4 controllers yeah it works but way too many workarounds when xbox works out of the box
>>
>>71390872
>dont get ps4 controllers yeah it works but way too many workarounds
lol wut?

You install DS4windows, install the driver, restart.

Done.

I've been using a DS4 for 5+ years without issue.
>>
I've had two xbox 360 controllers and eventually the thumbsticks begin to drift and the rb or lb begins to smush instead of click.

I ppened and cleaned them but it only slightly helped. There's a problem with the joysticks that they eventually become so fucked that repair is worth more hassle than its worth.
>>
>>71390743
and their triggers are usually linear and not analog, which is not too nice for games that have driving in them
>>
Would it be bad to buy a preowned one? I feel like controllers are way too expensive when I know for a fact they break eventually.
>>
>>71390832
the xbox 360 controller had a really bad dpad tho. This isnt a issue in most games but when you want to play an fighting game or a 2d jump n run it sucks really bad
>>
>>71390995
Totally. Pressing a single direction alone is almost impossible,
>>
>>71390992
preowned just means it'll break sooner, and potentially is already slightly damaged (trigger dead zone, loose thumbsticks, etc)
>>
>>71390992
I'd actually feel better buying a preowned xbox one which comes with a controller rather than buy a new xbox one controller.
>>
>>71390992
Probably not as long as the core components are in decent shape. It's easy enough to replace stick caps or clean out innards if you need to but you want one that hasn't been through the wars.
>>
>>71390832
How does Xbone compare to 360?
>>
>>71391010

Have you played Mario with an Xbox 360 or Xbox One dpad? Every level feels like an icy floor level.
>>
>>71390714
You get what you pay for. Enjoy your shit.
I prefer new DS4 but newer XBO controller is more than decent and plug and play on Windows.
>>
>>71391123
No, I don't like Nintendo anymore. They became too greedy, which in turn means they can keep their dreamlands of maximum profits to themselves.
>>
>>71391032
It’s subjective so you might want to try one yourself
I will say though that I laid my hands in a Xbone controller once at a Walmart and fell in love immediately

How autistic can you be? Emulating Mario games on a PC is contributing to Nintendo's financial success? Jesus fuck.

There's a video of me puking on YouTube. It doesn't affect me, because I don't buy their articles/content. Why would it affect me if I don't have it in the first place...

They even copy strike videos of people singing nintendo songs, they've gotten a bit better in recent years, but they have been fucking horrible in regards to content creators using nintendo titles.
>>
>>71391243
good choice, i find that the ps4 controller is really unconfortable.
I own like 5 controllers in total, but if i didnt i would prob. get the xbone controller as well.
My goto controller right now is the switch pro controller, but it heavily depends on the type of game I am playing.

First person pc game via steam link? ==> steam controller

racing game? ==> xbox 360 controller

Xbox One Analogs are shit, the Logotech F310 has better and its only $20

How? Elaborate. Please show me how one autistic manchild playing a Mario game without paying for it or buying Nintendo hardware and never recommending it to anybody is gonna end up being beneficial to Nintendo. Go ahead.

I think you meant digital, not linear anon. Linear is a set of values that are constant from x to y. Digital is one of two states, on or off. Analog means a large set of values, possibly infinite.

Who plays a game alone, without any hardware and without telling anyone about it, ever? I'll play with you if you want.

>Playing 2D games with a dpad on a different height than the buttons.

Why? You know Nintendo's perfect dpad can be adquired in the correct position right? The best feeling analog sticks ever (gc) are a plus too. I have 3 Wii classic pro controllers as backup because I don't see a better one coming out ever.

The guy that posted is not a YouTuber, he said it himself, he's the manchild I was talking about. Nice counter-argument to something I was not claiming.
>>
>>71390714
sadly you can't really choose anymore. A good chunk of games won't bother to be compatible with anything other than the xbox 360/one controller, so you're screwed from the beginning. Other controllers only make sense when you're using emulators, since you can map all buttons.

i dont want a cheapo wheel, but the cool wheels are expensive.
>>
>>71391555
The ps4 controller is more durable but that's a given for jap vs american. I've ran through many xbone controllers (around 3-4) and I'm pretty rough with them. I've had them fail due to snapped analog, broken triggers, completely failed power, and non responsive home button. I still prefer the feel of a fresh xbone one s controller though. I feel that both are great controllers but if quality is your main concern go with ps4.
>>

For modern games the Xbox 360 wired controller and for retro emus the Xbox 360 fightpad/Sega Saturn USB controller. Both should be easy to find and affordable if not cheap with a good enough build quality.

They're like sharks. They've evolved so perfectly to fit a very specific niche there is no reason for them to change and anything more than minor changes wouldn't be improvements.
>>
>>71390714
i bought a generic (non ms) xbox 360 one as good as the ms one for less than half the price. amazon
>>
>>71391393

Regularly gets reviewed as the best controller in terms of quality/price but it is so ugly and the PS dual shock thumbstick placement is inferior to the Xbox 360 style.
>>
>>71391473

The best selling console or console related thing over the last few years to the point even normies line up for them and go autistic for them are those shitty mini consoles. Also digitally distributed collections of old games on new consoles cost nothing and make a relative fortune for games companies.

The entire reason those exist and anyone thought about wanting one is autistic manchildren who emulated them on PCs then started building and even selling said retro emulators.

Without online autists having emulated and pirated old games from their childhood companies like Nintendo and Sony wouldn't have had their biggest hit products in years or found an entire whole new revenue stream on top of their usual release new console upgrade method every few years.

I had one and it feels so cheap and shitty. Not sure why anyone likes this one, the xbone controller has BT, microUSB, long battery life, 1 billion in R&D, and feels like the best controller I ever used. It's even got a 3.5mm headphone jack. The buttons don't feel cheap like on the logitech.

you could get a chink clone from aliexpress. same exact mold, probably the same PCB. depends on what they feel like shipping to you.

or just spend an extra $20 for the real thing so you don't wait a month for a mystery controller. there's really no better design than the ds4/xbone controllers.
