Depending on the shape of your hands, the Xbox Controller is either the reigning king, or close-second. Capable of running in both wireless and wired mode (simply hook-up the included USB cable), setting it up on PC is as simple as plugging it in.
Featuring the signature Xbox asymmetrical design, it’s surprisingly comfortable to use. It also features high quality components, and everything feels smooth and light to the touch, letting you input controls with minimal physical effort. This is particularly important when it comes to the bumpers that adorn the rear-edge of the controller. Many games use these excessively, and if the bumper springs are too strong this can easily lead to strained fingers and cramp following a prolonged session.
With a price-tag to match its quality, the Xbox Controller is undoubtedly one of the best controllers around.
