I recently bought Dark Souls on steam and read that the mouse and keyboard controls are atrocious and its much easier to use a controller. Does anyone have any recommendations for gamepads? I was looking at the logitech 310 but saw that many people complained about the unresponsive analog sticks. Any experiences/thoughts on specific gamepads would be appreciated.

-Thanks

Personally, I use an MS Xbox PC Controller. Never had any issues. Seems responsive enough for the types of games ive use it for. Never felt it was unresponsive. Cheap and cheerful :)

Personally, I just use a $10 generic USB Xbox controller. Dark Souls is the only game I use it for, and even then it's not something I'll get up and walk across the room for. The mouse and keyboard controls in DS are bad but not impossible. I would try a mouse and keyboard first, and then get a controller. I am assuming you mean controller and not a gamepad like the Razer Orbweaver.

If you buy a wireless Xbox controller, you will have to buy a receiver for it to use it on a PC. The play and charge kit doesn't include a data cable, just a power cable, just FYI.
