    i have read reviews that for racing games analog gamepad is the best.

    i have currently frontech gamepad which has digital and analog sticks.

    i am not comfortable with the analog sticks. so i want to buy a d-pad with

    analog control.

    i have zeroed my choice on

    1.)logitech precision 2 gamepad

    2.) saitek p220

    my question is are they analog gamepad or digital? how can we know that?

    also if they are not analog then please suggest analog gamepad with D-pad

    not sticks.

    i dont think a D-Dpad is analog.. it is digital zero One
    it can either be pressed or not pressed....

    Well .. actually .. FPS , TPS , RTS are not meant to be played on pads or joysticks ... but otherwise they're awesome for simulation and sport games ... anything like NFS or Fifa will attract u more if u have a gamepad ....
