I have really gotten into emulators and older games and need a better gamepad than the one I have now. I have a logitech dual action 2, which works okay but the square analog ports are really pissing me off. I am mostly playing NES, SNES and genesis, but mix in some N64 and PSX and newer console ports of GTA and such. I am leaning towards a playstation controller, but don't know whether a ps3 controller would work, or if there is an adapter for a ps2 controller to usb. A good d-pad is imperative.
Yes get an adapter for PS2 --> USB off of ebay or something. Mine is by... crap. I can't remember and the logo is rubbed off. It's something like "Gameplay" or "Game...something" I cant remember.. its red. anyway, ive had it for 4 years and still use it
