Why do most PC games not support game controllers? (1 Viewer)

This fact is really frustrating to me. I just bought a game called Alice and you have no option but to use the mouse and keyboard. Why not support a game controller option? I hate using a mouse and keyboard for games as it's confusing and cumbersome. Great, I just wasted my money buying a game controller and can't refund it since it's not defective. Now I remember why I rarely buy PC games.

A lot of game controllers these days come with configuration programs that allow you to assign keyboard presses with directionals/buttons...
That said, the only games I found to be easier to work with a joystick are the flight/space simulators. Everything else works far better with mouse/keyboard, especially the FPS genre.

I wish mine had that keyboard function. I guess I'll have to buy another game controller. Thanks.
