How to pick the perfect game controller

Game controllers offer an alternative to the traditional keyboard and mouse set-up. They provide an additional level of input and realism - for instance using a steering wheel in a racing game is so much more intuitive. Similarly using realistic cockpit controls in flight sims makes for a far more immersive experience. There are a huge number of controllers and cockpit simulators to choose from offering greater degrees of authenticity to the real world if you have the money to spare.
