is there a specific xbox controller that only works on pc or will any xbox controller work for pc?
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.
will i hav e to get the reciever or would an adapter work?
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 :)
