My MS sidewinder finally stopped working, so I am in the market for a good gamepad. Any suggestions? I really am in love with the gamecube gamepad, which is imo the best gamepad of any system currently available, and I thought about buying the skillz cube connector (http://www.playstationmodchip.com/customer/product.php?productid=574&cat=10&page=1) so I could use it with my powerbook, but am unsure of how well it will work - does anyone on this board have one? Other than that preference, I'm all ears for any suggestions.

Thanks!

Logitech makes great ones - they're practically exactly the same as the PS2 controllers. And they're Mac compatible too.

I use the good old Gravis GamePad Pro. It's pretty simple as far as gamepads go (1 directional pad with joystick attachment, 2 middle action buttons, 4 right-side action buttons, 4 shoulder buttons), but it's effective for me when I use it.
