A mouse and keyboard will get the job done for most PC games, but some titles are simply meant to be played with a controller. We tested over a dozen of the most popular PC-friendly gamepads out there in a variety of genres to help you find the perfect fit for your playstyle. Our top overall pick is Microsoft's Xbox One controller, thanks to its comfortable design, impressive build quality and instant compatibility with pretty much every PC game out there.
Latest News and Updates (September 2018)
- We reviewed PowerA's Enhanced Xbox One controller, which is an affordable and versatile alternative to Microsoft's pad that falls flat to the real thing in terms of build quality.
- The Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller, our top high-end pick, now comes in a slick white special edition. You can pick up the new pad starting on Oct. 16.
