What is the best controller for the PC? I am guessing an X-Box or Steam one?

Steam controller is pish on account of not having two analogue sticks. Its major selling point is that it's compatible with literally every game because it simulates a mouse and keyboard, but having a trackpad on your right thumb is nowhere near as good as a thumbstick.

xbox is good, but I've been looking at the Logitech F310, because I've used the Logitech Cordless Rumblepad (which was actually handed down to me from jay_c), they're a lot cheaper and just as good imo. The F710 is the wireless version.

Switched on my old XP machine and downloaded the last ever windows update.

I recently came in contact with a XP machine. I left my Win 10 laptop at work. I had to use an old XP laptop because I felt lazy and that is all that was available to sit on the couch and smoke weed while watching T.V. and putting in grades (I was liberal with grades that day).


The XP laptop worked faster and better than the Win 7 laptop I later booted up to access the school's portal. WTF Microsoft?

Windows 10 is pretty fast.

I'd still rather have XP and have control of my machine back.

Win 10 acts like a virus. It has updated itself 3 times to the Windows Creator version and three times I had to roll it back because it creates errors. It is acting super aggressive now. Every time I start up, it start downloading the update. It leaves a copy of the the update installer on my desktop. It keeps re-enabling windows update in the services menu every time I disable it.

I am trying to block it with my firewall now. God, I hope this works.

Yeah, the Logitech F710 is really nice.

It is fully Xbox controller compatible. (In fact, you actually need to install it as such in Win10, or it won't get recognized.)
It has the colored ABXY buttons, two analog triggers and that Windows Gaming center button.
It also has a mechanical switch to toggle between Xinput and DirectInput, which is nice if an old game doesn't support the former, and you can't or don't want to use emulator software.

The only drawback is the Playstation controller shape.
That makes my wrists hurt after long sessions.
tazz.

I've got myself an xbox 360 controller including receiver from the microsoft score. use it for everything and am very happy with it.

I also have a steam controller. Feels cheap and I prefer to use the 360 controller in 99% of games.
everything i write is a ramble and should not be taken seriously.... seriously.

So I was able to block it from updating for 2 weeks using Avast firewall. I start up today and it starts asking again. This makes me think it changes the server address it uses to update every so often to prevent malware from disabling windows update? Does that mean that there is a different program talking to Microsoft's servers that tells it to modify windows update to a new address? How far does this go?

My Windows 10 computer is scheduled to run updates during mid-AM hours. No problems, no malware/virus positives (false or otherwise). Why not let it update? It could be patching a hole.

@tazz Steam controller feels light, has a weird grip, and the buttons are loud.

Some of my games flat out won't run on Windows creators version. I had to buy a whole new video card a few months back because Windows installed and kept forcing drivers on my computer that wouldn't work because it updated to Windows creator once. Like windows would straight up replace the drivers seconds after I installed the correct version.

It forced the update on me again yesterday. I am just giving up on stopping it.

Can anyone recommend a good laptop?  Probably need 8GB ram and an SSD, but that seems pretty standard these days.

I have been looking at the HP Ryzen line.  Anyone have any experience with them?

Something with a good warranty because laptop-specific hardware can be really janky and annoying to repair or replace.
