Which do you use?
Although I frequently say I play with keyboard mouse on my PC, I am using programmable devices so I have a Razer Nostromo (replaced with a Tartarus) which is like a little keyboard with extra input gadgets and a Razer Gaming mouse with 12 buttons on the side, both are fully programmable. If I was using a generic keyboard and mouse, I would not find that adequate for many games.

The Nostromo has been replaced with the Tartarus Pro which is about $100. This kind of device has gotten rather expensive.

I remember a time when I was sold on trackballs for gaming. Why move your arm when you can just move your fingers? Alas trackballs, I wonder if they still make them? And today I’d choose the buttons of a gaming mouse. My favorite was the Microsoft Trackball Explorer, although it only had a couple of buttons. A refurbished model, they want $250 for, ha ha.

Today for a gaming mouse I have to wonder what is going on with Razer, are their 15 mouse gaming mouses history? Here is another discontinued item someone wants $250 for. Fortunately there is Red Dragon.


Fortunately there is the Red Dragon M908 for $35 at Amazon.

Infrequently I use an Xbox controller on my PC when the game forces me to. It has never been my first choice especially when I went from playing Marathon (Bungie game for Mac) on keyboard mouse to playing Halo on the Xbox with a controller, which I detested the inaccuracy of the controller compared to a mouse. :)

This one for Xbox One X:

For Switch, the Pro controller and then a PS3 controller.

If I play anything on my Mac (which is rare) I use my wired 360 controller.

Yup, they do. I bought one myself here about a year and a half ago, a Logitech MX Ergo Plus. They've since come out with a newer model, so they're still around.
