As with Windows, an XBox 360 controller and a generic PS2 style controller (or real PS2 controller with USB adaptor) will cover 99.9% of games.

I have a ton of different USB controllers and all of them have been picked up by Linux Mint. Compatibility depends on the individual program rather than the OS.

Thanks. There is no difference between the controllers for Xbox and windows. Just that the wireless controller requires a dongle.
