I just bought a Joystick (Attack3) and now realize that many of the popular shooter games can only be played with the keyboard :-(
As an example "Call of Duty" cannot be played with a Joystick ... I can't believe it ... I usually download the game demos from www.download.com, so maybe it could be that it works only with the keyboard because it is a demo  ... ?

Anyway, here is my question:
- did I miss something or is it correctthat games like "call of duty" cannot be played with a Joystick ? In that case is there a website similar to download.com where I can see in advance which games can be played with a Joystick ?

Thanks

FPS games are designed to point and shoot..... Generally they are not joystick friendly. Check out the following link for more info:

The only shooter game I know that has joystick support is Star Wars Battlefront.

Publisher: LucasArts Entertainment Company

I still recommend going in for either sport games(most of these joystick friendly) or simulation games(heavily rely on joysticks.. manouvering an aircraft with the keyboard will be TOUGH!).

Hope this solves your problem. :)

Some of the most fun joystick games are the old Super Nintendo (SNES) games that are available for download.

you are correct, Call of duty cannot be played with a joystick.  Most, if not all, first person
shooters use the same keyboard/interface control.  

Try some flight simulator or racing games with the joystick.
