Default Can you use a game controler to play Fall out 3 for PC?

I want to get it but I hate playing on the keyboard.

I presume you can, although i would have to check, i love using my wired 360 controller on my PC games, especially racing games where you need some sort of analogue. Most Games for Windows instantly recognise and configure your xbox 360 controller on your PC for you, its really helpful

Yep - I have a Saitek programmerble controller - brilliant bit of kit

You can create profiles for all your games so once setup - no more messing - lol

Highly recommended

Im sure you can use it for old emulators, it just acts like a usb control pad for whatever you want it to control so i presume you can although i have never tried. Nice idea though, lets all go play the SNES with a 360 controller, now thats old skool

I just bought a wired 360 controller to play Fallout 3 and gears of war. It rocks. Works like a champ.

here are two opinions of mine, Im currently having this Dilemna and was thinking of making a post like this.I have a PC Xbox 360 controller which is a great controller.
When this game was ported to pc they didn't think much in terms of hot keys for accessing individual aspects of the pip boy like M for map or I for inventory,the advantage is if you are a pc player aiming and moving will be much easier.
the Xbox controller is more relaxing so I end up using it when I'm raoming around and quickly switch to Keyboard when getting into a fight.

I bought a DualShock 3 like controller in anticipation for StreetFighter IV.

Thanks for this information, I'm gonna borrow my brothers controller when he gets it out of his attic and give it a go. Will try and find the drivers.
