My girlfriend wants to use a controller to play pc games with me (I know that mouse + keyboard is way better, but these are certainly baby steps in the right direction). I realize that my PS3 controller has a USB connection, so I hooked it up. It doesn't work simply by plugging it in and I found a program to help me... we program the buttons on the controller. After battling with it for hours, I have it semi-working (playing Vanguard btw). So my question is this, if I actually go out and buy a controller specifically made for PC, will it be way easier to get up and running? Are most of my problems simply trying to get a PS3 controller to work on the PC? I don't mind programming a controller if it's simple (such as make the red controller button be the 'c' key on the keyboard keybinding type of thing). Does anyone have much experience with using controllers on PC? Are there some games that are controller compatible and some that arent? Any advice will be much appreciated. Ideally I'm looking for a controller that's virtually plug and play, if it exists. Someone please help me!!!
