To play Playstation 2 games on your computer, you will need a Playstation 2 emulator. Once downloaded, you can use an analog controller to play games rather than the keyboard and mouse. One of the most popular PS2 emulators is PCSX2 which is free to download and supports analog controllers.

Download and install the latest version of PCSX2 from the developer website(see Resources).
Open the SSSPSX v.1.7.1 Pad plugin from the downloaded PCSX2 file on your computer.
Press "Configure" to begin configuring your analog controller. Hit the "LX, LY, RX, RY" buttons to configure your analog axis. After you have pressed one of the buttons simply move your analog stick in the correct direction to assign it.
Select "R3" and "L3" to map the buttons to the same configuration as they would be on the analog stick of a PS2 controller. Click "OK" when you are finished and restart the emulator for the changes to take effect.
