I did 200k with a keyboard once. I don't mind the keyboard for maze games. I do have a USB XBOX 360 controller I break out from time to time. It was great on Metal Slug. Any game that has a console feel to it the 360 is nice. I actually won a storage unit that had the controller in it. One of 2 things I kept out of it. The other piece being a furniture piece.
