Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller For Windows (PC / Xbox 360)
For £17.99 this controller is a steal in my opinion. It took five minutes maximum to set up (including driver installation) and then I was away. I've bought a few controllers in the past that require lenghy configurations and in the end, half of the games I have didn't even recognise it. That is not the case with the xbox controller, every game I've played so far with this controller has picked it up straight away with no issues, that includes some older games that were released before the xbox 360. If you're looking for a solid, reasonably priced controller then I recommend this.
Race Driver: Grid

As the title says, this game is fantastic. Created by the same guys who gave us TOCA so you know it's going to be a decent racing sim. The graphics are pretty stunning too but I'm running this on a pretty high spec machine, out of curiosity I reduced the graphics settings to medium and they were still quite good so you don't need a high end computer to enjoy this game. The only reason I didn't give this game 5 stars is because at first I found the controls quite difficult and sometimes frustrating to get used to, I would highly recommend you play this with a controller as opposed to a keyboard, however even when using a controller it can still be tricky to master the steering at first.
Saints Row 2
Such a good game spoilt by a terrible conversion to PC. I've been running this on a pretty high spec machine and I still have performance issues when playing this. I thought GTA4 was a pretty poor port but then I played this and I was shocked at how little effort was put into converting this for PC. Even some of the instructions during the game refer to the xbox controller and not a keyboard/mouse set up. Regardless of how powerful your machine is, if you really want to buy this game get it for either xbox or the PS3. I can't stress enough how much you should avoid the PC version until the performance issues are addressed with a fix, if that actually ever happens.
