      Some users think DS4Windows is a great alternative to reWASD, some don't.
      reWASD turns controller input into keyboard and mouse input. DS4Windows turns PS4 controller input into Xbox 360 controller input.

      Playstation fanboyism? Maybe. But the interface is great and DS4Windows is the Playstation equivalent to rewasd but it's opensource! Can't get better than well polished software that is opensource.
