Jeff The Ninja If i dont use my keyboard, i put in my X-Arcade joystick. It works well with genesis games as most games are of the arcade variety.

W01fman Radio shack has a PS2 to USB adapter. Item 26-729. Cost me $11.99. It came with a driver cd for an easy install. I'm been playing Frets on Fire like crazy and it works great for my wireless gitar hero controller.

Divisible by Waffle If you want to be bold, you can try to rewire a Genesis controller to work on your computer. I've heard of people doing it with SNES controllers before, so why not?

Also, if you're going the PS2 USB route, Smartjoy is the best brand to go with. My friend has one, and it works perfectly.

I've heard that. I also hear that a lot of games do and/or will support it.

That's neato!

One can use the Wiimote too, but ya need some drivers and this thingie called GlovePie.

Girl Drink Drunk I got my PS2 to USB adapter. It works great for the most part, altough it's kind of odd when playing NES ROMs.

Yeah, it's pretty easy and I just might try it in the next week or so.

SKATERMONKEY there are also adaptors for xbox controllers to be compatible with
pc as well but I actually prefer my wireless thrustmaster controller.

Fathom Zero I think that there are USB Genesis Controllers out there.

Girl Drink Drunk Sweet. I'll just get one of those then. I found one called the "PS2 to PC Controller Adapter".

kahljorn i think you can buy adapters to make the PS2 controller able to hook up to the computer.

Are there any good PC controllers for playing Genesis ROMs?

I'm looking for a controller that actually has a good D-pad with directional buttons that aren't webbed together (like that X-Box 360 did), and resembles either a PS/PS2 or SNES controller. Considering I'm not big on PC gaming as far as newer games go, Im not looking for something too expensive. I just need a good controller to play NES or Genesis ROMs.
