No pressure sensitive movements, can't lay down on the couch and play, + the added chance of carpal tunnel all leads to KB + M being a joke for gaming.

You literally tap keys to move, the mouse is ok, its acceptable but the posture of which you need to be able to use it sucks compared to that of a pad.

Average PC gamers hands

Trust me, you don't want this.

So use a controller.

@lundy86_4:

Which completely defeats the point of gaming on PC.

If you have a controller on PC, just admit you really wanted a console in the first place but you're blind PC fanboyism stops you from getting one.

PC gaming is defined by kb\m?

PC gaming seems to largely be about choice. With that regard, it really only strengthens the point.

I know it sucks. Been saying it for years. I guess hermits just grew up playing only computer games so they are used to it, like some people prefer stick shift (though stick shift is beginning to fizzle away due to paddle shifters)

Hermits don't like it, they just deal with it because they get to play Crysis with 32xxSGSSAA at 300 FPS!

If I've learned anything its that hermits don't care about PC games, they just care about the graphics.

btw Stick Shift >>> Paddles

Considering SW is now filled about threads that consoles games can finally run games at 1080p(or not),that's funny

Damn, thats true. They get their kicks by running games at 50000p and 93973923929237 fps. They are not true gamers, if they were they'd realize the best games are, were, and forever will be on consoles.

Remind me what are "true gamer" ?

PC gamers have the option to use a gamepad also ya know....

So after your first terrible troll thread was locked, you decide to make a new one.

#23 Edited by Spartan070 (16324 posts) -

I admit I started gaming on consoles and eventually migrated to a semi-part-time PC gamer. Took a while for my wrists to be comfy with that style but now I can play a game with kb/m for several hours easy with no discomfort at all, wireless keyboard in my lap, mouse on the couch arm, I'm good. Or the traditional on-the-desk method.

Still not a long-time comfy as a controller for me but at least I admit that's situational to me and not some form of higher truth found on the Rosetta Stone 2.0.

all herms play are RTS and other F2P MMOs so that mundane set-up is fine for them.

yeah i mean is not like cows created a million ps4 threads praising 1080p the last month and as if not lemmings created another million threads about Ryse

Oh and you can use any controller you want on pc

and good luck playing strategy games with gamepad ( but let me guess according to you strategy games suck because are on pc am i right ? )

#28 Posted by danten81 (129 posts) -

I got my kb/m for fps/rts/pnc adventure(try to play these with a gamepad properly), and I got my DS4 for everything else. That's the way your average PC gamer does it b*tch.

#29 Posted by -RPGamer- (34283 posts) -


I kind of agree nowadays. I don't play competitive FPS all that much any longer so needing the fidelity of KB+M is very limited for me. I only come back to KB+M for RTS and I rarely play them any longer either.

Doesn't help that PCs and KB+M remind me of work, or that I could be working.

Why can't you report things any longer? There's only flagging. Booo. How are the mods to know I flagged a thing for being too stupid and worthless to exist? They'll just look for racism or drugdealing or something and leave the thing open.

This will upset a lot of people.

But I agree.

I play my pc games with a gamepad if possible. On the same tv as my PS3 :)

Cut him a break dude, he's a habitual liar. I do prefer a controller, but kb/m isn't as bad as you make it out imo. Ive gotten into some great FPS' and lost sight of the fact that I was using kb/m

My god the hypocrisy is mind numbing here. All Cows have talked about for the last week is running games in 1080p, and X1 in 720p. But Hermits only care about running games at higher levels and they aren't true gamers? Sounds like hypocrites and jealousy.

no that was ps4 vs x1, nothing about the PC and their crazy specs makes me in the least but excited or wanting it. With all the money I spend on bullshit I could have easily bought a $3,000 "rig". But PC is just not fun for me, sorry.

go play arma. OO you can't! the devs said arma will never come to pity consoles because the CONTROLLER would ruin the entire game

So, it's okay to mention better graphics as an advantage of the PS4, but not of PC? Oh, look, I see a hippo flying in a crate.

That aside, what you consider fun or not fun is irrelevant, since that's just your opinion.

@Gue1: I had fun playing TF2 last night. Also got started playing warsow and Saint's Row 4 recently. Loved the mass effect trilogy. Got to get AC:Brotherhood beat too. I'm really behind on that series. Good thing I will be able to buy AC:R and ACIII for like 10 bucks each on Steam.

Got nothing to do with what you want. If PC gamers aren't true gamers because all the care about is running games at high resolutions and frames per second, then Cows, who only care about 1080p now, cant be real gamers either. Its the same logic. But cows are known for hypocrisy so it doesn't surprise anyone here.
