One way to come up with a good name for something already in existence is to look how other people call it. For example, a Wikipedia article on USB HID devices puts everything this spec cares about into "game controllers" section. How about GameController?

You could look at other classifications of input devices. Maybe USB HID spec itself has a good classification?
