Which gamepad(s) can you recommend me.
Maybe keep in mind that one is mainly for a eight year old kid, the other one is for me.
( We play Lego Star Wars 2 atm.:rolleyes: )

Price should be around 20 each.

well i would have recommended the wired version but i used to own two of them and they both diedafter about 3 months, i read a couple of forums that people had similar problems with the wired version of the rumblepad 2 so i switched to wireless and have not had a problem, and ive had these for almost 7 months

i know that i sound like im naggin the controller industry mafia, but i bought a Saitek p880 wireless, and the batteries died almost immediately and i contacted saitek and they said, no problem we'll send you replacements well that was over a year ago so i am boycotting saitek

I just bought the wireless Rumblepad II as well, and for one lousy game. I ended up buying the PS2 version of PoP:The Two Thrones and am playing through an emulator just so I don't have to mess with StarForce again. After that, I doubt I'll ever use that gamepad again.

i asked them several times to send me batteries
bunch of filthy liars at saitek, crummy worksmanship on their products in comparison to Logitech
