Hi all. New to the forum and an MX Bikes noob.
I started playing MX Bikes but using a keyboard. Will adding a controller make playing easier or more fun? If so, what is the recommended controller for a PC? If not, do most PC users just interface with the keyboard?

Thanks!

Most players use console type controllers, which one is down to personal preference. Using analogue axis will give you more precise control over a keyboard button for things like throttle and steering etc., which I think makes things easier.

Ok, for my PC, I'll look for a console-type controller with an analogue axis instead of the keyboard for playing MX Bikes.
Using the keyboard was challenging.
Thanks for the help! I'm getting into real MX riding, and I was looking for a simulator instead of an arcade game.
