My apologies in advance if this is in the wrong section, now let me get to the point. I’d like to make a PC game that gives you the option of playing mouse/keyboard or joystick /control pad. My question is, would I have to pay any royalties to the owners of the joystick/control pad company for making my game compatible with their controllers?

No, you do not have to pay them royalties. If anything, _they_ should be paying _you_ royalties for extending the range of programs for which their product is functional for. But, you'll have a hard time convincing the courts to rule that settlement in your favor....
