I was so eager to try a gamepad on my HTC one but there were comments here in XDA that it needs rooting for it to work so looked for other alternatives instead. I was able to test a $2.50 dollar ordinary usb joystick and it works fine, no root needed! Thought there are no analog sticks I was able to play games that doesn't require them. I also tried the USB ones that has analog in them but it didn't work (I guess this is due to low power, etc.)
Here's a video I did to test it
So just in case you guys are looking for a gamepad that works for your One try those that doesn't have an analog stick, it might work. Consider to test them as well if the store is OK with it.
I might get mogapro or ps3 sixaxis controller in the future but for now this satisfies my gaming needs
