How to Fix Spiderman Remastered Controller or Gamepad Not Working Issue
Whether the controller stopped working midgame or did not function from the onset, here are possible ways you can rectify the issue at home.

This for most controllers is the equivalent of restarting your PC or console. Doing this step usually resolves the issue in most cases. If it doesn’t, you can launch to the next possible fix.

Restarting the game will most probably rectify the issue. A bad login session might be the cause of this issue, which is why restarting the game is always a good alternative. However, we still have other solutions if for some reason it doesn’t work.
3) Restart Console/PC
Before doing this, disconnect everything from your PC or console. Restart the console or PC and watch the issue disappear.

3) Navigate to ‘Controller Settings’.
4) Follow the displayed prompts to see if the controller is detected, or check the necessary boxes.
