The benefits of modding your controller are obvious- more options and easy gaming. Modding is especially useful in first person shooting games, and you will now be using the burst mode forget fatigue of having to repeatedly pressing on the buttons. Handling weapons in both hands are now easier. In games like Tiger Woods Golf, you can wield full power by just pressing a single key.
