    If the USB controller does not work in Mac OS X or does not come with any drivers search for the product name or model in Google.com and add "Mac OS X" after it to see if there are any drivers. Also you can try USB Overdrive, a shareware application to program gamepad buttons to keyboard keys.

    I've used a few cheapo controllers, and they've been fine. 2 player Gish on a big screen is so much fun!

    USB game controllers are pretty standardized now, so anything should work.

    Personally, I LOVE the PS2 controller. I'm probably going to buy a PS3 controller if they come in standard USB, or else get a PS2 --> USB converter online (they're pretty cheap).
