What PC games work well with the xbox 360 wired controller?

Hi, I am looking to buy some of the latest shoot em up games for my lap-top. Could anyone tell me what games work well with the xbox controller. Many thanks

  1. Games made for the 360, like CoD4, Mirrors edge, GTA 4, fallout 3, just a few. Most shooters are good too.

  2. I think you still need to buy that xbox receiver for windows even if you're using wired remotes, but I'm not sure, so you should check that out first. I have one and it works great for my wireless controllers and wireless mic. I know Left 4 Dead and GTA IV both have the Xbox 360 remote pre-configured so all you have to do is hook it up...no choosing any buttons or anything like that. Also, during the game it'll actually show things like "press A" or "tap LB" and such, instead of giving key commands that you have linked to your remote...for instance if you make y work as the shift button, most games will say "press shift" still and it can be a bit confusing, but those two games will actually say "press y". Depending on how much work you want to do any game will work well. Get a program call XPadder or a similar program...there's another good one I used to use but I forget the name of it...but programs like that will allow you full customization of your controller. Like holding down LT 1/4 of the way does one thing, 1/2 the way does something else, all the way down something else, and all the way down and holding it something else...tons of options. I've used my Xbox 360 controller for COD4, COD WaW, L4D, P.U.R.E., GTA IV, Saints Row 2, F.E.A.R. 2, and many others with no problems. F.E.A.R. 2 also automatically recognizes it. I kinda started using keyboard and mouse again though for every game but F.E.A.R. 2, L4D and GTA IV though...I don't really care for setting up the remote myself, but if it comes pre-configured I have no problem using my Xbox 360 remote.

  3. Well personally i think halo 2, gears of war, Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and GTA 4 do the best with the xbox 360 controller here is all the games though that support it

    Also left 4 dead is great wit the controller and that other guy lied COD4 for pc doesn't support the controller


  4. A large selection of games presently support the 360 controller specifically and most of the instruction books for them have a preset key map so that the controller does not needs manual binding. I will include a list of games that support the 360 controller below (other games will require mouse emulation and key binding.
