This forum is not only for developers but for players, too. So let me ask a player question:
Do you use a gamepad/controller for playing? Do you recommend them? And for which kind/genre of games?
For games ported from Consoles mostly...
Still loving my Steamcontroller though, very versatile and with this tool it can be used without Steam as well.
I felt I needed one to play… minetest! So I am interested too.
This is the first poll test.
If you answer with "Yes" please tell in a posting which controller you use.
Thanks for merging.
The poll feature seems to work fine :)
Yes, i use them.
Especially on racing games and single player RPGs.
I use a PS4 controller.
Some years ago, yes, I used a logitech usb (like as dualshock) for emulators and Aba Games as Torus Trooper.
But now, I have few time to play.
For a few years I used a Steam Controller to play absolutely everything but I eventually decided all the configuration was too much hassle. I wish there was a standardized way to implement gyro controls on PC so less of that was necessary.
Anyway, I'm now using an 8bitdo Pro 2 and the Steam Controller occasionally.
For console emulators mainly.
I barely bring myself to use a mouse.
