    Does one exist? If only someone would come out with a controller built like a PS2 or even XBox S controller would be fine.

    yeah, about 40 years ago they came out with this kick-ass controller called a keyboard. It's modeled after the typewriter. Then later-on they developed this thing called a mouse. Use those together and it's amazing what you can do.

    They make adaptors that let you use PS2/XBox controllers on your PC... But it really sucks. Most games require the interaction of a kb/mouse to get the full effect.

    You know, some people just prefer PS2 or XBox style controllers when playing FPS games. Just depends on what you're used to. I can't use them, but it's because I've only ever used keyboards and mice for FPS games. Someone who plays them on a PS2 or XBox would just have an easier time using those controllers.

    As for controllers for PCs, there are controllers, like SEPHROTH64 said. I know there are also ways of taking an XBox controller and replacing the standard connector with a USB connector and downloading driver software to get it to work on your PC. As far as setting a controller like that up to play an FPS on your PC, I think it depends on the game. A lot of games let you customize the controls, but to what extent really depends.

    i SUCK with controllers, ESPECIALLY in FPS. i can never aim and i always get the buttons wrong lol. i try not to play any new consoles really, they are pretty disappointing.

    keyboard and mouse all the way, especially a sensitive mouse and ultra quiet keyboard that doesn't clikity-clack in games.

    but here ya go...
