  • Need your opinion regarding: Controller vs. Keyboard/Mouse

    I know this argument is pretty tired, but I want gamers opinions to settle an argument.

    If you had to choose which you would have to use on an FPS game, would you rather have a
    Keyboard/mouse combo or Controller

    Please give your reasoning behind your choice.

    I wont' put my opinion here as to bias the answers.

    I personally utilize a combination consistinng of:
    Nostromo N52 SpeedPad
    Logitech MX1000 (custom key assignments)
    S&S Steel Gaming mousepad

    They have been yielding me definative results

    Keyboard & Mouse
    1) You can aim a hell of a lot faster, more precisely, and have much more control than you would with an analog stick or directional pad.
    2) A keyboard has a lot more avaliable options, as the controller is restricted to essentially one command per button. A keyboard has waaaay more buttons (or keys on the board, if you will).
    3) I can't use a controller well in FPS. I've played a lot of Halo1/2 on the X-Box, but it just doesn't cut it. Even moving my look sensativity up to Insane (10, which is the max), seems way too slow. And inaccurate. And sloppy.
    4) Nothing electronic is much sexier than my wireless keyboard and mouse.
    5) PC > Console
    6) PC > Controller
    7) Keyboard/Mouse > Controller
    8) Keyboard/Mouse == Excellent *Steeples fingers*

    I think the lack of a keyboard and mouse is why I've never really played console games past the NES. I have a PS1, but the only game I have for it is Gran Turismo 2.. Had an N64, but my roommates played it far more than me. Haven't touched the current generation of consoles. I've played games with a keyboard since the C64 days as a little kid, so it's just what I'm used to.

    I liked controllers for some games that utilized them well, like driving games and RPG games. Other than FPS is all K/b and mouse. Even consoles wanted K/b and mouse for their FPS games (i.e. Dreamcast). Only a matter of time before PS's and Xbox's start using them too.

    Keyboard and mouse all the way. The keyboard is not limited to 6 or 8 buttons like a controller. Maybe its just me but I think using a mouse is alot easier and alot faster for turning than a d-pad on a controller

    Keyboard/mouse combo it easy to use in FPS game. I hate controller in FPS like Halo 2 it fun but the keyboard/ mouse make it easy if xbox have it.

    Thanks for the opinions. That is what I had been trying to get across to these console meatheads on a board I am on. The precision (this is the word I was looking for) is just not the same with aiming and movement.

    I've always prefered the mouse/keyboard combination. Especially in games that don't have any sort of auto-aim enabled it's a must, console controllers just lack that precision. Then I got bought an Logitech MX518 mouse, it's a FPS player's dream. On the fly sensitivity adjustment (this is fantastic for going between vehicles and being infantry for BF2, or when zooming in with a sniper rifle), extra buttons by your thumb, well formed and feels absolutely smooth to use. There is no way I'd trade up that mouse for any sort of controller to use in an FPS.

    Re: Need your opinion regarding: Controller vs. Keyboard/Mouse

    i used to use a joystick to move, fire, strafe, comms and reload, and the mouse in my left hand (i'm right-handed) to aim. i hardly used the keyboard for anything.

    Then i eventually saw the light, and went mouse (r-h) and keyboard.

    Can't use controllers to aim at all, and it's too slow, so i don't bother playing any FPS on the X-Box, let alone using the pc with one.

    I would try both out, because both methods of interaction provide vastly different gameplay experiences, and neither one is superior over the other. I've played Halo with a controller on the xbox and a mouse and keyboard on a pc. Both are fun in their own way.

    Definitely keyboard and mouse for FPS and for flying a chopper. I've tried out the game controller I use for console games on FPS's and never could get used to it. Could just be because of years playing the games a certain way though.
