I hated the Hori pad that people are recommending, the analog triggers for  R2/L2 suck, they are basically flat buttons that never seemed to register properly. I had a few and they all did the same thing. 

I used it fine for Fortnite and whatever other games were coming out when that released back in 2017.

(Had a huge rat infestation around this time, so they chewed up the cable and I replaced it once with another Hori but after they destroyed the second one I reluctantly went back to the DS3/4, Hori to this day was one of the best unofficial alternatives I've used for any console.)

 

Personally outside of their GameCube controllers I've had no use for PowerA products.

Not a DS alternative, more like a cheaper Fighting Commander alternative, but this controller is pretty ok:

It has decent build quality, some basic button switching and you can even change the d-pad. But it doesn't work with PS4 though

The usb convertor/adapter sounds like a good idea. 
 

2 of the 3 DS3 I own have the random buttons presses issue, so I’ll just use the dualshock 4, and since I have 3 gens of playstation charging stations on my desk, that will also save space

Can't believe I'm going to say this, but a fake DS3 controller. The ones you can get from AliExpress. I have tried many controllers for the PS3, even my PS4 and PS5 controllers. But a fake DS3 controller has been my "go-to".

 

YMMV, however.

I like the PowerA version, but that is getting harder to find and it doesn't support rumble or Six Axis which I've needed in some games, so I have to pull out the original DS3s for some games to progress.

 

The cheap ones on amazon are all Chinese junk from the same factory. They might work for a month or so, but they'll drift in no time. Absolute junk

 

I'd love to find a good alternative, but not sure there are any.

yes, i add my voice to your statement Hori designed for FPS only. 

I bought Voyee PS3 controller for 13 USD from amazon.

Truly the best cheap PS3 controller. what I liked about it so far precision of the analog stick which is in a bar with Dualshock 3

 

1) battery life is good

2) built quality is solid
