    Default PC Games compatible with Xbox360 Controller

    Recently got a xbox 360 controller, and can't imagine how I gamed without it.

    Only problem is I never know if a game is compatible until I've tried it, which can make for a lot of disappointments. Some titles are labelled "Games for Windows" and have mandatory xbox 360 controller support; if the game was designed to use controllers at all. But lots of games do not sport the logo due to indifferences with the requirements.

    So I thought I would create a list for all those interested in gaming with this pad, to enable us to make more informed purchasing decisions when it comes to buying games that support the features of this gamepad. Notably Vibration and z axis trigger buttons.

    Preferably the list will contain those games that work without any messy button configuration and I will write these under heading (Fully Supported) if it maps all the buttons correctly and fully with support for vibration.; as far as I am aware. I only have a limited amount of games on my computer at the moment, so I need your help compiling this.
    However older titles are also welcome, but I will write nothing after them unless there are problems. E.g. Compatible, but not enough buttons on controller to map all major actions

    Finally, is there a list like this anywhere else, such as Microsoft's official sites?
    If Im wrong anywhere, please correct me.

    So please post the
    1) Name of the game
    2) "Fully Supported" Game or Not
    3) Any problems with mapping


    Fully Supported
    Tomb Raider: Legends
    Tomb Raider: Anniversary
    Halo 2
    Need For Speed: Most Wanted
    Rainbow Six Vegas
    DiRT

    May Require Button Remapping

    Halo 1
    MDK 2
    MAME32

    Rainbow Six Vegas is fully supported. As far as I know there are no mapping problems.

    I was looking at getting the wireless adapter to allow the 360 wireless to work on my laptop... has anyone tried these or know if the compatibility with games is different from the wired controllers?

    Yes I have the wireless receiver and it works great...Windows recognizes a wireless controller exactly like a wired one. If you already have a 360 controller you can just buy the wireless receiver and use your existing controllers on your PC. Two thumbs up!

    Cool, thanks. I was so close to getting one this afternoon, but now that I have that confirmation, I'll be getting it soon

    Do you know if it works well with Battlefield 2?

    If there's any games that don't work, download Joy2Key. It should make every game work, especially since the 360 doesn't have digital analog buttons like the original Xbox one did.

    Dell Vostro 1500
    Processor:
    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5470 (1.6GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB),

    Memory: 2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz
    Hard Drive: 120G 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
    Total: $749.00

    Thanks. I get paranoid when I read that other people can't play certain games with the 360 controller and don't really say why... I'm sure like another other controller, if it doesn't directly support the game, you just have to remap it.
