Yes, I use an xbox controller, have for many years and works great for the type of games I play.  Might not work for every game type (i.e. complicated flight sims, etc.) but I use for sports games, shooters, etc.

Thanks, I was thinking of using it for GTA5, got it on Epic and never played that version.

@GR if you have access to a 3D printer, you can make this  :)

I use an XBOX controller to play games like Euro/American Truck Simulator.  I also use both a flight stick and the XBOX controller to play IL2 BOX games where the controller is used to manage the less than frequently used aircraft controls like engine cowl flaps, radiator cooling, etc.

Holy $hit, that's impressive. I might just try that out for $hits and giggles.
