Sure, the Xbox controller may be the most common PC controller, but there's a small-but-passionate base for Sony's Dualshock 4. And with the haptic triggers on the Dual Sense, we may start seeing PC games make use of them! But for now, what's your Go-To PC Gaming controller?
I've been using the classics for as long as I've been gaming on PC..... BUT only for select games. And, after experimenting with the weight and feel of the DualSense (and its goooooood), I might be making a shift here soon. Otherwise, it's keyboard and mouse for me!
For me, I'll typically use an Xbox controller. I started console gaming with a PS1, moving to a PS2 and the Xbox 360 and, of course, I've changed my controller as I changed console. So when I upgraded to PC, I just used what I had available. Since then I've stuck with Xbox controllers except for one short time where I used a Steam controller. I still use that for Rocket League because I can't replace the buttons in the triggers. I love that a full pull of the trigger has a button. Now that I've got so many hours in RL, I can't switch, and won't switch until my trusty steam controller dies.
TL;DR Xbox One controller/Steam Controller; for now.
I will use Keyboard and Mouse for most PC games however if I ever feel like I need a controller, especially for fighting games, an Xbox 360 Controller is my favorite. I prefer it more than the Xbox One controller, just feels nicer to me since I have put countless hours playing UMvC3 on the 360.
I also am a giant Gamecube fan and play a few gamecube games, mainly Melee on my computer.
KB&Mouse when it is available and works well, otherwise I have and use an Xbox One controller only because it came with the original Rift.

There where a few custom controlers that had a sandy feel, I loved those. i think they came with the SE Horozon, Mastercheif, and one other Madden 2017?
Highly depends on the game I'm playing.
I have an Xbox One controller I use when I'm playing action games (Dark Souls, Monster Hunter, etc...). Since you can literally just plug-and-play with the Xbox One controllers, it was the easy decision. I didn't want to mess around with weird drivers and software to get it working.
I use keyboard/mouse for other games like MMOs, shooters (obviously), and MOBAs.
The xbox 360 controller is the best controller of all time!
