An XBox 360 controller with the USB plug works fine for me.

So I can map my game controls to one? I did not think of that...

Foster brother has an XBOX 360...

The newer consoles come with wireless controllers, so you may have to buy one regardless, but they're still around $15 and work like a charm. My friends and I use them at school from time to time to play Smash 64 on the school computers.

I don't think you're supposed to, per se, but as it came out for the XBox too, it's nice of them to have configured the controls for the computer port for those who have the joystick already.

How come it won't work? Is it not a USB controller?

What the hell is wrong with the keyboard and mouse? controllers might be good for games like GTA and flight sims/air combat arcade games but for Sims 3 a keyboard and mouse works perfectly.

that said get a wired Xbox 360 controller for games like GTA4.

Driv3r was a terrible game due to how freaking hard it is. I beat it myself and went though at least one controller on that game I am surprised the wall survived. If you hit even one thing in that game while doing a chase you pretty much have to restart the whole mission and there's lots of stuff to hit. Plus the cars control pretty badly, sort of like GTa4, only much worse. The only thing I liked it for was the music.

Yeah... lol...

Anyway..

I need to download software to map keys on the controller... ? What is a good free program without spyware/virus? I heard about "Xfire" Switchblade but in order to download it I have to download a program called "Xfire"

And I'm a little leery... because it told me to sign up for the site to have instant access to the download and then it says I have to use Xfire...

...Ok... Well, I rebooted my computer and the controller worked... somewhat.

The true test will be when I reinstall GTA4..
