After a long wait, God of War has finally landed on PC, but players should note that using a controller enhances the gameplay experience.
Imagine playing this game with a mouse and keyboard 🤣
Ikr? why would anyone want better aiming with the axe and faster camera turns and more accurate camera placement?? Sounds silly.
Yeah and digital movement…. so advanced.
Imagine not having good enough hand-eye coordination to play games with M&K.
Point and click gameplay requires far less hand eye coordination and skill.
I can imagine the lack of stick drift, not that you'd know what that's like.
Mouse drift is a thing too . Saying that, p Where the dualSense will really come into its own, is with gt7,
@purple101 Usually for very cheap mice and much more rare in occurrence, a fix doesn't require taking apart and desoldering the whole thing, or throwing it away after only a few hundred hours of use. Controllers since the last generation don't have that luxury; they're all made with the same prone to failure joystick hardware, hence why it's been a growing topic involving class action lawsuits and numerous articles/videos on the problem.
Mine doesn't drift, friendo.
Imagine thinking this game is 5 years old…like you do
dualsense with haptics all the way on pc is the way to go,i l just love pc modding,so yeah more features than the actual ps5 release
I'd like that but I didn't think they introduced haptics on duelsense
Play the way you want and enjoy. As a console gamer I feel like controllers have made big improvements/come a long way where they are a viable option for PC gamers now. But end of the day it depends on the type of game and gamers personal preference
No they're not. I started as a cosnole gamer. Loved playing fps games and got used to it on controller but once I started playing them on PC it was worlds apart. Much later on For one reason or another I found myself playing some fps on console and man is it tough to get used to and frustrating. The lack of control is very clear...in a game like destiny 2 it's better due to all that aim assist built in but man would I much rather play fps on PC with keyboard and mouse. Even 3rd person shooters is an easier time. Basically any game where good aim can matter is better played with keyboard and mouse. Doesn't mean you can't get used to it on controller. You absolutely can. But the level of controller is far superior on keyboard and mouse. Which is also why devs integrate aim assist on console and not on PC...in some games anyways.
Controllers are absolutely a viable option on PC. Something being viable doesn't necessarily mean it's as good or better. Ultimately it just comes down to preference. I play most games with a m/kb, but for third person games I always prefer the feel of a controller.
@porkchop I understand what viability means but it makes no sense to use something that is "viable" when you got the mouse and keyboard right there. Why choose the "viable" worse option? But yeah I dont always use m/kb for 3rd person. It depends on the amount of accuracy needed. Definitely easier on me versus first person shooters. 2D sidescrollers I always use the controller.
If we're talking shooters then yeah, Keyboard/Mouse is the way to go for sure, but for a game like Devil May Cry or MGR, I'll go for my controller in a heartbeat.
Why in the actual fuck would anyone even consider playing these types of games with a keyboard/mouse is beyond me. FPS games, I understand, but this ain't an FPS.
Cory Barlog made the game and said he's loving playing with the mouse and keyboard.
The game would look dumb playing with M&K. Imagine all those videos where the screen moves a thousand times just to turn a mm and apply it to this game.
I think you need your eyes checked.
You might need your bias checked.
You know what’s crazy? Halo, Forza, and other Microsoft exclusives hit PC day one and NOTHING generated the absolute maelstrom of coverage, praise, and videos as years old God of war. This game is so good and it’s eclipsing NEW releases in attention. Sony really have a talented first party. +3 year old game? Can’t tell.
Not really. Same hype as HZD port. Its an old game thats lost its hype. Still a great game but we've heard and seen it forever.
Nah, no where near. People were hype when HZD was announced for PC. It came and went coverage wise. If you you were uninitiated it would seem like this was god of wars first release. It’s like people have completely fell in love all over again.
Or we can play God of War on PC in whatever way we want. That sounds good to me.
Oh, yeah. Third person melee action games and stealth games always get a controller. I use M&K for anything that needs fine tuned aiming or isometric games.
What a stupid article.
RTS and Tycoon are the only games I play with keyboard and mouse. Everything else I use a wired duel sense.
