You can use a PlayStation 2 emulator to play PS2 games on your computer. Note that it is illegal to play a PS2 game on your computer if you don't own a hard copy of the game and a PS2 console. Instead of playing the PS2 game with your keyboard, you can configure an analog controller to work with your emulator.

Step 1

Launch your PS2 emulator. Click "Configure" or "Options."

Step 2

Select "Configure" under the "Controller 1" or "Controller 2" option in the menu.

Step 3

Click down on the analog stick you want to set. Depending on the controller, you'll usually have two options for the analog stick: setting the Y axis and setting the X axis. Some controllers require you to simply click and move the analog stick to establish Y and X axis settings.

Step 4

Move the stick to the left, then to the right to set the X axis. Move the stick up, then down to set the Y axis. Click "OK" to confirm the configuration.
