Xbox 360 or Alternative Joystick controller

Seems to be time for me to add a “joystick” controller to my gSender Windows 10/11 system. I’m getting tired of the computer keyboard functions and want control at wasteboard level.

So, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of advice on what to buy that works and pricing isn’t such a big deal, but I’m not inclined to buy Microsoft’s $80 item new. I do prefer the wired option, because copper is good.

A quick perusal on Amazon comes up with these two popular purchases for less than $20 :

What say you? Got any usage and/or purchasing advice for me? Thanks!

There is an app on the IDCWOODCRAFT site to use your cell phone as a controller if interested.
