I could never understand how people preferred a keyboard, even for something like an FPS. You need 4 buttons to move (WASD usually) which is fine, but if you're using those a lot of games make it so you have to contort your hand to unbelievable levels to hit things like C (crouch), Shift (run), Space for any number of things, and so on. In the heat of battle it's too easy to mistake V for C or something and hit the wrong button, or your finger slips, or whatever. Not to mention you're not getting smooth analog control from just WASD alone. And then don't even start with having to constantly look down to hit the appropriate number to change weapons, or even us the F series keys sometimes. Going from WASD to 7 is not intuitive at all and I can't do it without looking.

I don't care what the elitists say, give me a controller for an FPS. They're not difficult games anyway that require 1/60 reaction times and pixel perfect precision to win. Using right stick to aim is fine.

>> No.3508232

Mouse for aiming, one-hand thumbstick controller for movement actually works pretty well for FPSes. That's how the arcade FPS games in Japan work anyway.

>> No.3508248

D you know what a scroll wheel is? Don't need 1-7 to change weapon anymore.

>> No.3508265

Of course FPS are not difficult anymore, because they're dumbed down for console babies like yourself.

I understand controlling two ministicks with your fingers but where do you get the remaining two degrees of freedom from?
A DS4 should work due to the touchpad. Maybe even for further degrees of freedom via the gyroscope.

This is the ideal setup. Stick movement feels much more natural, same goes for mouse aiming. Put the two together and we're in business.

You know it's not that I care he has a different opinion but he's got an upsetting sense of superiority about it. There's not really any point to go online and spout shit.

>> No.3508960


Instead of getting angry about it, you should watch the video. He says he knows kb+m is better for FPSs, but just that he prefers using gamepad because his _OPINION_ is that keyboard reminds him of work, because he works with the PC a lot.

The out of context pic is bait, and it works wonderfully.

See, that's stupid. That's like saying my car reminds me of work because I use it to get there.

Are you retarded? All you have to do to press C is to slide your index finger down from D and for X you just slide your middle finger down from S. To press Shift all you have to do is press your pinky finger down and for Space just press your thumb down.

Pretty much all the FPS/TPS shooters are better with keyboard+mouse and I see no idea why the fuck those games are so popular on consoles. It just feels awkward. Then there's the whole genres like RTS and map painters that are simply unplayable without keyboard+mouse.

When I play some platformer type of game like Abe's Oddysee or Spelunky I prefer the controller even when I'm on PC. You'd think the console market would focus more on games that are better on consoles, but no. It's been nothing but downhill ever since they introduced the analog sticks. At least if you ask me. I don't even want to play console games from PS2 generation onwards because I hate the controls. I feel like a cripple playing those even when I'm good. Of course there's exceptions and I'm being a bit too harsh but still.

>> No.3510606

Yeah hes a video editor and for some reason they all think Final Cut Pro is good. Windows has plenty of alternatives. But it fits his casual nature.

I agree. FPS, RTS, Point and Click, classic adventure games as well....all work best on a computer.

Now let me tell you something you little shit. DO I have to draw a diagram on proper finger placement?

If you have your thumb on space, C is the next row up. If your fingers are on WASD, your pinkie should be resting on SHIFT, F is next to D, and E is next to W. It's not rocket science.

It's probably what they were indoctrinated to use in college. Some professor who gets a paycheck for recommending it and having his students use it in class so they all get hooked on it and run right out and buy it as soon as the class ends because it's all they were taught to know.
