Hi, I'm trying to play metal gear rising on my laptop with a keyboard and mouse and I'm at a point in the game where its pretty much undoable without a proper controller so I need some opinions on a good controller "but not a steam controller because I cant stand the steam controller".

Thank you.

Xbox One or PS4. Xbox One would be the most compatible. Also, there's some cheaper knockoffs that I feel are pretty decent.

PS4 controller works well with steam, but for some reason most games with native controller support give Xbox prompts. Pick whichever you prefer.

Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers are a safe bet because they're natively supported by Windows.

Yes, that will work, but if you don't need it to be wireless you can save a few bucks and just get the controller by itself and a Micro USB cable.

Id do this. I kind of want to say that the XBone controller will also have a chance of working on a typical bluetooth dongle. Do your own research, Im lazy. The other version looks to be $50 at bestbuy with a cable

Thanks for all the responses

I’m probably gonna go with the Xbox controller

The plan is I’m gonna hook up my laptop to my Samsung tv hdmi and play at 1080p resolution

It’s not a related issue but my laptop gets really loud as the fans go on overdrive to try to cool it when I’m playing games on it and it starts to really heat up and I’m wondering if it’s dangerous to do this or maybe I need some sort of a laptop cooler
