The Roccat Isku FX is a surprisingly simple and well-designed piece of hardware.

So whether you’re getting lost in Titanfall or just wanting to stay ahead in a game of Rush Poker, we won’t judge, this is the keyboard to give you that competitive edge.

Xbox Gamepad for Windows

Xbox Gamepad for Windows


We’ve got to keep it OG and talk about the Xbox controller and it’s PC functionality. Microsoft hit the nail on the head in terms of comfort, reliability, feedback and durability. It is therefore no surprise that PC gamers want a taste of it too. Giving players complete control over big PC title releases, the gamepad is available in both wired and wireless designs. You don’t have to buy it twice either, as it’ll work on your Xbox 360 as well as your PC.

That does it for this list, but rest-assured we’ll be updating the list with our favorites throughout the year, so be sure you’re following us on Twitter and are subscribed to our blog!
