    I am a pc gamer myself. But I can't stand the idea of making fun of the use of "controllers". This is because of the fact that Ghost recon wildlands, tom clancy's the division, just cause 3 (all beautiful looking games) wouldn't be playable (or not playable per se but fun to play) unless you use a controller. and I do use a controller for these games on my pc. This is just a fact. I get it, I do play warframe, PUBG, as well as fornite on my pc using a mouse. And they do require a mouse on my high refresh rate benq Monitor. But I would never play the division, ghost recon wildlands, and just cause 3 using a mouse and keyboard. and of course I wouldn't recommend any gamers reading this comment to use a mouse for any of the games that I just stated. PC gamers need to get over the fact that not all gamers favor first person games that require a mouse or games like warframe and fortnite. #justmythought

    Game consoles with the a standard controller levels the playing field.why should you have an advantage over another and then claim to be the better player when it's not that your better it's just that you spent more money,it becomes a competition of wealth rather than skill.

    Good video as always Linus but I have a small correction cause it bothered me. Warframe was and is originally a PC game ported to console. Not the other way around. And the game is still developed with pc as a primary objective, and we get patches before console. Just thought I would tell you :)

    * cheaper games

    * online funciton is free
    * u need/have a pc anyway
    * higher frame rates
    * you don't have to play with a controller, but you still have the option to
    - some games exclusive for ps4/xbox
    - in some particular games, there are more hackers on PC
    - of course nintendo games only on switch. Nevertheless, there are working emulators with high framerates and no bugs

      - you have to deal with Windows
      - game launchers
      - Steam Proton/Play on Linux is far from being considered as a full replacement (visit protondb and you'll see)
      - you can't resell PC games (that's why they're cheaper)
      - physical games are just a one-use license key in a box, you don't actually own the game
      - most people don't need a desktop PC, same for a dedicated video card
      - gaming laptops are too expensive and you can't upgrade much compared to a console
      - if you need portability (like me as a programmer) a dedicated video card on a laptop cuts a lot from your battery life
      - a gaming desktop PC is huge, specially if you don't have much space in your room like me (in the same space I could keep a tower desktop pc on my desk, I have 3 consoles vertically side by side, PS2, X360 and X1X)

    I dont really see the fairness argument between mouse & gamepad. It'd be one thing if it was prohibitively expensive, but you can head to walmart and pick up a keyboard and mouse for less than the price of an official Xbox controller. Its like you're playing baseball and you complain that the guys wearing cleats have an unfair advantage.

    you really don't need a keyboard and mouse for warframe, as it's mostly pve and not competitive. With the PS4 touchpad you can get most all of the keybindings you need to play the game. I also feel like movement using a controller on a game like warframe is more comfortable and more fluid.

  • JayRebel
    JayRebel 23 days ago

    That keyboard is a piece of shit. Designed by a non gaming, complete moron. Look at those tall, square edged keys. What the fuck is that? A Logitech K120 is designed better than this Xbox piece of shit keyboard. Literally. Not figuratively.....literally. A fucking K120. Xbox mega fail. For you non gamers, directly up and down keystrokes are slow. Hitting short, contoured keys on the side/edge for quick maneuvers is essential for pro gaming. i'd rather play Blades Of Steel on NES than use this mega fail keyboard for anything.

    It's an alternate input method for gamers on a budget. The guys at the beginning must have a problem with the impoverished having a slice of PC pie... Not everyone can afford to lay 500 down for their own entertainment. This is a solution. The fat guy actually seems disgruntled upon hearing it.

How the fuck do I change my keyboard size to original. I mean the one where some games like rocket league you use the two squares button to fucking chat in game chat

    Keyboard & mouse is only good for strategy games like C&C, halo wars etc.. as a pc (elitist) I do prefer the console for shooters like battlefield because the amount of buttons the game requires you to press and I do end up pressing the wrong key just to throw an medpack down for an example. Cod is just run & gun and is easier with a Keyboard & mouse. Driving games are better with controller because you can turn slightly for non sharp turns whereas keyboard your doing a full lock turn for a small bend corner.

Console my kd is fairly high but pc I’m super trash and that sucks because pc is better.
