How can you drive a car on a gamepad?
Get a steering wheel and pedals like the rest of the civilized world.
That's like complaining that flight sims aren't great with a keyboard when you should be using a flight stick.
Tried that, the game is overly sensitive for the gaming wheel.
Just steer a tiny bit to the left, and see the car doing a 360 spin!
Maybe I could not afford a branded (And a better) one.
My favourite- Xbox controller, like most people the fact that im accustomed greatly influenced my decision. I tried to use the PS3 controller the other week and just couldn't manage it, the thumb sticks were too high up on the pad, the triggers were too close together etc. However if i had been using a PS3 controller from the beginning; im sure i would prefer that more.
That's not much of an endorsement. They can use any USB controller that has Windows drivers.
