    What is a good controller to play console games on my computer? I will play Nes, SNES, Genesis, and N64. I would prefer USB. Thank you.

    Try the Xbox 360 controller. I have it and it is compatible with alot of games.

    Yeah. *Thumbs up to the 360 controller*

    Support for it isn't great but a lot of games have built in compatibility. Also, when you get a controller, use XPadder for those games that don't have built in compatibility.

    Is XPadder free? I've never used software for gamepad support. But if it's any good I'll try it.

    will the wireless 360 controller work if it's hooked up with the USB?

    Wait, that was correct a while ago. But now thats wrong. Now they gave a new Wireless Gaming Adapter so you can use your wireless controller. It's around $20.

    I have a USB adapter that lets you use a Playstation 1 or 2 joystick. It was $10 at Radio Shack and works very well.
