    I'm looking to buy a wireless PC gamepad, mainly for FPS games. I am normally very happy with mouse/keyboard but am tempted to try a gamepad as I have had a bout of RSI type wrist pain which seems to hurt less when playing on consoles.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    I have a Thrustmaster firestorm Dual Power pad, which is styled along the lines of the PS2 pad (but I find it more comfortable), there is also a wireless version of the pad too. However, I've never used it on a FPS, but it's great for sport/racing games etc...

    I'm in a similar situation myself - I can't spend much time at home on games via keyboard because of RSI problems and having to spend time at work using a keyboard. So I bought a Logitech Wingman Cordless from dixons yesterday for £20. It's nicely designed and has force feedback.

    If you have a PS2 or PS1 go over to www.play.com and get yourself a usb ps2 controller adapter, works a treat. The rumble works too!!
