Most current games do actually work with a controller.

On the steam product page games to say if they have controller support or not so it may be worth looking there.

To be honest, racing games are about all you can play well on PC with a controller - at least in multiplayer. Any FPS and the reactions and accuracy tends to be far worse on controllers and you just don't stand much of a chance against someone on mouse and keyboard. MMO speak for themselves really.

I used to play campaigns of games with controller if I could as it was just more comfortable, but anything online and being on a controller just tends to be such as disadvantage.

i think all rockstar and games for windows games work with a controller (usually need a 360 controller though) but you can use xbcd to make any controller show up as a 360 controller. you just have to move the dll files it crated to the same location as the game exe.
I play a lot of games with a controller.
batman seriese
gta seriese
resident evil.
stick of truth
racing games i use my Logitech wheel.

but fps have to be kb and mouse. you would just get owned otherwise. also rts games are just going to be worse with a gamepad. and i could never play TES games with a game pad.
As a general rule of thumb. if its on a xbox then it has gamepad support.

i think there are way to many games available to try and list them all.
and for the ones that dont have game pad support Im sure there is an app out there that will let you map key presses to a gamepad function.

If you just search for controller and sort by games and relevance you'll find that most games that show up there, support a controller. If you view a game, look in the bottom left corner, there is a feature list, most games say Support for X360 Controller.
