    Can anyone recommend a good game controller which will work on the 64bit iMac lion platform?

    I can't remember the exact model I have but I picked up a Logitech USB controller that works on my MBP running Lion. I haven't used it in awhile but I think it was plug & play for the game I used it on. There's an app in the Mac App Store that helps you set up a controller if need be. Sorry I can't remember off the top of my head, I'll post more details when I get home from work.

    My controller is the Logitech F310 model. Depending on the game and controller you might also find GamePad Companion useful.

    I use a stock DualShock 3 (PS3) since it uses the same standard Bluetooth as Macs, and has the best d-pad of all time. Software support via 3rd party driver.

    I'm using a Super Nintendo controller with an USB adapter. Works like a charme.
