I have next to no knowledge about computer games and the peripherals needed to play them, being rather Old n Bold. I have spent an hour browsing forums on Rome Total War to get answers but maybe I am not asking the right questions. Maybe gaming ARRSERS can help. RTW is being played on a laptop running Windows 7 using the touchpad and or a mouse. Neither is ideal for controlling the action. From what I understand maybe a game controller would be better to use, maybe moreso than a joystick. Can I have gamers' recommendation for either of these devices, please? Wireless is preferable but not essential. Top spend Â£50.00. The device is only to be used with the Total War series of programs. Thanks in advance.
