I still find it funny that I'm one of the only PC gamers that uses a controller for any game that supports one.

You use a controller for FPS games if they support a controller? :error:

I use a controller for everything as well, including FPS games. I am horrible with KB/M

I <3 my Steelseries Sensei mouse. Probably the best mouse I've ever owned and I've been through tons of mice (nearly one a year and then they die, the sensei is a year and a half old and works just as good as day one so far)

I always view the people that prefer controllers over keyboard/mouse to have tried it once and gave up on it thinking it was too difficult. It has a steep learning curve, but if you keep at it, you may find that you actually prefer KB/M over a controller.

Yeah, this. You would have laughed at me playing MW3 multiplayer with KB/M the first time.

To be fair, that has nothing to do with your difficulty with the controls. I'd laugh at you for playing MW3 in general.

BURN! But sadly, it's true. I have some odd 500 hours in MW3 and I'm ashamed of every last one of them. :cry:

Pretty much. I had a really hard time getting over that curve. Now I cant stand playing with a controller for any pc game. When I bought castle crashers and they kept the 360 controller stuff in it I just stopped playing.

Every time I turn it on, all the players float around aimlessly and have infinite ammo. I lost interest because of the hacking.

Blops 2, on the other hand... Good shit.

I personally prefer a controller most of the time, because I spend enough time hunched over the keyboard. When I'm gaming, I often want to kick back. I've put enough grrl-years gaming on the KB/M even excluding my isty bitsy WoW addictyears. I usually play FPS (not a big FPS fan though) with KB/M, though my 78 BL2 hours are mostly on controller solely. Certain genres I am unlikely to play unless it has controller support, including: Racing Games, Platformers, Shumps, ARPGs (notably excluding Diablo-likes), fighting games.

One of the only times I'll recommend using a controller over KB/M is for Super Meat Boy.

If it has support for a controller, I use it.

There are rare exceptions. And I do KB/M for FPS games, but as everyone says "I like to lean back" (or lean forward in a more comfortable way.)

And my cheap desk setup is hell when it comes to ergonomics. I'd like to spend as little time in long, uninterrupted KB/M position as possible.

Phase 4: Keyboard and mouse! Controller! Controller sometimes, keyboard/mouse sometimes!
Phase 5: Posted Image
Phase 6: Is it time for a new thread?
Phase 7: When's the next sale? Is there a sale? When is it?
Phase 8: Steam sucks! Steam rules! You're both wrong! You're both right!

I'd add a phase where people discuss that a ton of posts have been deleted, someone asks what was deleted, people recap, and someone doesn't post for a week from a temporary ban.

Maybe also a "WHY DOESN'T ANYONE UPDATE THE OP I DEMANDS IT THIS THREAD SUCKS AND YOU ALL SUCK" portion.

You got the broad strokes down but missed intermediate phases like

"What's up with this greenlight bullshit! Valve is lazy! No, Gabe just likes Bad Rats more than Drakansang!"

and

"You are so full of shit, RollingSkull! Stop Trolling! But I think he's entertaining! I admire his opinions! ANIME!"

and, lest you forget,

"Origin is the worst. I think Origin is a totally fine client. Sure, the client's fine, but there aren't any sales! What about the free sale, lul?"

and

"Daily Deal is up. It sucks. Is Gabe Newell personally fucking with us on this? Actually, I think it's a good game. Worth the 2.50. I'm waiting for a bundle!"

I don't know what the hell they were thinking by taking the dancing out. It's like they were trying to make the game respectable or something. The nerve!



They did?!? Praise be the Mayan Gods!
