Something silky smooth, natural feeling, and ultra responsive. Also can't decide if I should go buttons or pad for the direction. I had something I got off fleebay a while back and it was working fine until one long weekend of NFS Hot Pursuit, now the direction response is all busted up This is mainly for GTA, I'm currently doing some hardcore modding to GTA Vice City and renovating/adding many parts to the game, including an interstate highway with new cars that are much faster with agile handling, and I also will be playing some more NFS here and there when I take breaks from working on VC. So I'm looking for something superb and that can handle abuse. So what do yall recommend?
