Our top pick for the best PC controller is at a really low price in the UK right now: you can snap up Sony's DualShock 4 controller for just £29.99 at Argos right now. The elegant white variant of controller is going for the same price at Amazon too too. This represents a further discount on top of that being offered by Sony at the moment as part of their Days of Play event—this slashed the 'standard' price of the DualShock 4's to £34.99 (until the 17th). The Days of Play price of £34.99 covers all of the red, camouflage and blue variants all at Argos now too, if those colour schemes are more your style.
For some PC Gamer readers, a controller is the preferred option of play. For example, I have slightly 'different' hands and without options like the DualShock 4 I wouldn't be able to game on PC anywhere nearly as comfortably and enjoyable as I do when using a DS4. On top of this, some games almost demand it as their key-binding is a bit rubbish (I'm looking at you Rage 2).
