All official xbox controllers work with Windows with the applicable drivers (except original xbox). Third party controllers (such as rock-candy brands) may/may not work and are not recognised as an official xbox controller and will not be recognised as an Xinput device via windows (instead it will be recognised as a generic controller driver)

I would recommend getting an original xbox 360. They are cheap right now and work with every game pretty much.

What? Get a wired controller. They usually have very long cords.

u need the receiver if you want a wireless controller. If you go wired (connect to the PC USB) you don't need anything you just plug it in.

I got one on sale from Amazon (around $20) and it works fine on my PC.

I'm a fan of the XBox One controller - just bought a non-wired version and then a cheap Amazon Basics USB cable for it - job done after downloading the Windows driver for it from Microsoft.

I just prefer the XBox One controller to the 360 controller, but that's just my personal preference :)
