Best PC Games to use with a controller

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Xbox One controller that I was using with the PC died recently, so found an excuse to upgrade to this. 



The Hyperkin Duke, a remake of the OG Xbox controller. https://www.mightyape.com.au/product/hyperkin-xbox-one-duke-wired-controller-xbox-one/26846265

Loving the larger size (though admittedly, the bumpers are a little hard to get used to) and am feeling the need to find/play some more games with my sexy new controller. 

Any ideas? doesn't have to be recent, just fun and excellent with a controller. Genre is not an issue either, FPS, Beat em up, Platformer etc. I don't care, I just want more reasons to fondle my baby! 

Suggestions?

Cheers.

*EDIT* How do the video attachments on forum work? Expected it to be embedded, which is how it showed in the preview.  Edited by NukeJockey

Tomb raider.

Dying light. 

Castle crashers. 

 

All great games. Dying light (and expansion) are probably my favorites due to the co-op.

Thanks for the reply Chaos, I need to get rise of the tomb raider, finished the first one and don't really feel like going back. Dying Light I have put literally hundreds of hours into on console and the PC, definitely plays well with a controller, but it is objectively better with mouse and keyboard. Castle Crashers is also something that I smashed out on the 360 back in the day, if I can find it cheap on PC I may pick it up. 

I've been looking through the steam store using tags to do with controllers etc. and unfortunately am finding very little. I bought Yakuza 0 recently, which is excellent with the controller, wouldn't mind some more beat em up games of that style.

and lots more i cant think of, some more famous as console games, and many other smaller PC games that work well with key controls re-mapped. 

i mention Dying Light: The Following because, although i am in the camp that there is no justification, ever 🙂, for playing an FPS with a console controller, switching to controller for driving the buggy around is perfect — that game is easily THE best fun i have ever had playing Co-op.
