I use a Keyboard and Mouse for all my PC gaming, because I'm not a faggot.

I'll use a controller for pretty much anything that ain't a multiplayer shooter. Sometimes I'll just use keyboard/mouse for shooters regardless. Screw keyboard/mouse for platformers and racers.

I tried getting it to work for TF2, but the right analog stick kept fucking up. I stick with the keyboard. That's the only game I play on my PC.

Over the course of my life my hands have formed over a mouse, a keyboard and a PS2 controller. I can't get used to using the Xbox controler. The trigger buttons and the terrible d-pad mess with me too much so I don't use the Xbox controller at all unless it's on the Xbox where I need to.


???-2004?=dark ages, 2005?=atomic betty era, 2006=red dwarf era, 2007-2009=newgrounds era, 2009-on= anime era.

Using a mouse for anything other than shooters and Strategy games is for ultimate tards.

KB+M sucks for racing games, platformers and beat 'em ups. Shitty console ports too (like Alpha Protocol and whatnot).

Steering wheel > All

platformers

All a matter of personal preference, I prefer a keyboard.

and beat 'em ups.

Stick > Controller

Shitty console ports aren't worth playing.

You play The Thing pc game with a mouse and keyboard? You play 3rd person shooters with a mouse and keyboard? Say what?

When I play ol' console games in an emulator, I have this cheap PS 2/3 controller ripoff that works surprisingly well.

Besides the point. A controller is still better for those games, and not everyone wants to invest in those extra peripherals.

Shitty console ports too (like Alpha Protocol and whatnot).

Have fun not playing good games.
