The best gaming controller for every type of gamer

There is so There were many game controllers, but not all of them were good enough to make the list above. These are the other drivers we have tested recently.

Nacon Revolution 5 Pro for $200: This highly customizable PS5 controller features Hall-effect sticks and triggers, programmable back paddles, and an excellent D-pad. You can modify the weight, club length and grips, and even the trigger pull. It has a 10-hour battery life and you can connect your headphones via Bluetooth or a plug-in. Unfortunately, it’s expensive and you don’t get the haptic feedback or adaptive triggers that you’ll find on Sony’s excellent DualSense controllers.

Nacon Pro Colorlight Compact Controller for $50: I’m a fan of translucent technology, so this Nacon controller immediately caught my eye. Not only can you see the electronic interior, but they also added colorful LEDs with lighting effects that you can cycle through. As the name suggests, this is a compact controller. The smaller size may be suitable for children or people with smaller hands, but I found it a little uncomfortable after an hour in Minecraft. It’s also a wired controller, but you can modify the sensitivity of the joystick and some other parts in the Nacon app, and it’s not too expensive.

Power-A Fusion Pro 3 for $78: With a detachable faceplate, nicely textured grips, trigger locks for different depths, interchangeable joysticks, and a long detachable cable, this controller has a lot to recommend it. The side buttons and the relatively high price are the reasons why it loses a place at the top (the GameSir G7 surpasses it in value). But this is my daughter’s favorite wired controller because she plays with headphones and loves that there is a 3.5mm audio jack with volume and mute controls. He also likes the four assignable back buttons.

Nacon Revolution X Pro for $100: This Xbox and PC wired controller comes with a long (about 10 feet), detachable, braided USB-C cable. Nacon offers an impressive level of customization, including interchangeable joysticks, programmable back buttons, and weights to help you get the feel you want. The Profile button lets you cycle through four presets, a switch toggles settings, and it has a 3.5mm headphone jack. You can modify everything in the Flaky Revolution X app for Xbox or PC. While it works well, I don’t like the cheap feel (even with the weight adjusted) and the rear triggers are uncomfortable. At full price, the Revolution X Pro is overpriced for a wired controller, but discounts are frequent.

QRD Spark N5 for $49: This affordable PS4 controller has Hall effect joysticks and triggers, programmable back paddles, adjustable LED lights, and decent battery life (around 8 hours). It also works with Windows, Steam Deck, Android or iOS and can be used to play PS4 games on PS5 (but not PS5 games). It can’t compete with our previous pick (Scuf), but it’s a decent alternative at a quarter of the price. Unfortunately, it feels a little cheap, with the shoulder triggers and D-pad particularly disappointing.

QRD Stellar T5 for $59: I love the idea behind this Nintendo Switch controller. At first glance, it looks like the official Nintendo Switch Pro Controller above, but you can detach it to slide your Switch into the middle. The controller features Hall effect joysticks, mechanical switches, adjustable vibration, and LED lights. It also has a six-axis motion sensing gyroscope and programmable back buttons. It also works with Windows, Android or iOS. Unfortunately, the triggers are soft.

Logitech G Pro racing wheel for $1,000: WIRED editor Parker Hall praised Logitech’s racing wheel accessory, and deep-pocketed racing game fans will love it. Add a layer of reality to your in-game driving with force feedback and vibrations that help you feel each surface. The shift paddles have Hall effect sensors. There is also an OLED screen that allows you to modify settings without opening the app.

Power-A Advantage Wired Controller with Lumectra for $45: This Xbox Series X/S controller is affordable and a long (10 feet) detachable cable comes in the box. It looks a lot like a regular Xbox controller, but it doesn’t have much grip and I don’t like the shoulder triggers. The 3.5mm audio jack is useful, but there are no volume or mute controls (unlike Power-A’s superior Fusion 3). The Lumectra model comes with an RGB light strip, but we found the lights to be difficult to control and often changed unexpectedly. Over time, the detachable USB-C cable became quite loose and would occasionally come off in the middle of a game.
