I never played with controller, but I think it's time to get one. I feel like I'm limiting myself to k+m without any reason.

 

So, based on these titles, which controller to get

 

Ghost of a Tale - finished with k+m, excellent experience

Mages of Mystralia - finished with k+m

Nine Parchments - finished with k+m

Divinity OS 1&2

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs

Dark Souls 3 (maybe 2 as well)

Trine series

Hyperdimension Neptunia series

Dragon Dogma DA

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning

Songbringer

Crawl

Omensight

Jotun Valhalla Edition

Zwei Arges Adventures

Transistor, Bastion (do these titles even play with controller, I got one free, but never really played any)

Heroes of Hammerwatch

Ori and the Blind Forest

Rime

Full Metal Furies

 

 

As you can see, I got lots of different titles - searching through any community would take quite some time. So, if anybody played those titles, how they play with xbox controller and/or ps4 controller?

I have a PS3 (console) and an Xbox 360 controller for my PC ( respectively for demon souls and dark souls...  :biggrin: )

 

For me the Xbox controller is superior, its just bigger and more comfortable in my hands, even after long sessions

The Steam Controller takes some getting used to, but it is insanely configurable, able to adapt to a multitude of usage scenarios.

I like my xbox 360 gamepad and find it good to use. I'm hating the one for the ps3 and try not to use it at all.

Any PS controller I ever had broke extremely quickly, especially X button.

 

At least Xbox controller is robust.

I've used a wired XBox 360 controller for PC games ever since Overlord released. It was the first time I ever used one. And it's worked comfortably anytime I've wanted to use a controller.

Xbox 360 and Xbox One are the most compatible cobtrollers on pc and this is because most games that are controller compatible are built around the xinput model. Drivers for Xbox 360 are also the main of any Windows system (Microsoft for Microsoft).

I've been using one for 3 years and have never had a problem.

Yes, controllers have their advantages. For ex, if your playing Super Meat Boy or Hollow Knight, you're just not going to get the natural precision with a mouse or keyboard, in fact you'll likely get a bit of cumbersome lag that a controller won't give you so there's that. The controller is more responsive for high demandong platformers, it's not just about comfort and some people don't realize that.

You'll notice a HUGE difference for Ori and The Blind Forest. For Divinity Original Sin, if you're playing the enhance edition, it was built with controllers in mind so that's going ti feel alot more natural with a controller as well.

I used to use an XBox 360 controller for my PC gaming needs. These days I'm using my Nintendo Pro controller (yeah it works on PC) for anything that doesn't need analog shoulder triggers.

 

Unlike the XBox controller the Pro has a great D-pad...

Looks like I am the only one who prefers PS contrlers over anything else. I’ve purchased two PS3 controllers in 2010 and they work until this day. And both had very heavy use during all these years. And still use them.

Dunno, I've always found them uncomfortable. Then again, I'm the utterly odd one out because it looks like I'm the only person on the planet that didn't hate the original N64 controllers. :blink:

For me it's simply the position of the analog sticks on the ps3 controller, which I find way more comfortable on the xbox 360 controller.

 

/edit: Well, and the xbox pad is a bit heavier at the center due to the battery pack.

I much prefer k+m but I do have 4 xbox 360 controllers for co-op games with friends (who needs consoles?) and I've never had a complaint.

It’s all about hands. For me the most comfortable and precise control is complete opposite of yours. I just do not like the design of xbox, where you have one cross and one analog stick on the same distance from palm. Two analogue sticks at same distance means for me much better precision and handling.

So, Melusina, the conclusion by me is:

If you have friends with xbox and PS consoles or controlers, visit them, play for few hours some game with heavy input action needed. I would probably recommend some Soul game or fighting game, even if you never play them :p , and you’ll see which one feels more comfortable in your hands. Bad controller can cause even injuries after long hours of playing.

I use my PS3 controller. Prefer it over any other modern controllers out there.

Ignore these console peasants, the only controller you need is the Warthog HOTAS.
