many people just use the standard keyboard and mouse to play. i personally play alot of bf2 and COD2. i use a fairly basic keyboard and a gaming mouse (logitech G7) and a joystick to fly. It is all personal prefernce though.

G15 and G7 is what I've got. And now that they've got the G7's colors to match the G15, it's a sweet sight! (electric blue, black, silver and neon orange)
