The most hated shooting mechanic is using a controller

sGIBMBR3041d ago

I used a keyboard and mouse for years back when I was a PC gamer.

Needless to say, there's more skill with a controller than keyboard and mouse.

People are... how can I phrase this... TOO GOOD with a keyboard and mouse.

On online PC shooters, player's reaction times are simply too fast, almost to the point where it's unenjoyable for more casual players like me.

However on consoles, no matter how good a player is, the controller handicap prevents them from spinning around and shooting me with pinpoint accuracy within a fraction of a second.

To conclude, I prefer my multiplayer shooters on console.

I agree with you Fanb0y...

First time I agree with a fanboy... LOL...

PC and Mouse makes some people too imba for casuals to enjoy it :I

Just look at Counter Strike... No casuals can play it because of hardcores owning it..

So basically remove everything from FPS titles that make them fun. Listen, if you want a realistic shooter, go play Red Orchestra. Getting shot once in that game is almost a guaranteed death, and guns respond accurately to their real life counterparts. Also, you cant just hop into any vehicle that you see. You have to be trained to use them. It's the reason why it's called the WW2 simulator. For the others out there that was the fast arcade experience, go play the others... like Halo, Killzone and Call of Duty.

never could stand an FPS that had enemies that run straight at you to melee you, its ok if they have a bit of AI and side step a bit and use cover, but in some games you get those that run straight at you and you end up running backwards bumping into stuff and getting stuck on scenery while this thing tears away at your face.

its true that sometimes you can run away and do a turn and shoot thing, but im talking about enemies that run as fast as you do. I think any first person game should never make you run backwards. unless you are in a massive open area.

can't disagree with fanboy

I often wonder how it feels to be on the receiving end in cs where people go 2-30. That must be harsh. I sometimes feel bad for the people that I've killed for the umpteenth time in a row because they're simply too slow. yet a lot faster than console gamers.

pc gaming truly is unforgiving and almost forces you to have faster reflexes if you want to be considered decent/good.

With most of these.
Removing said "gameplay" mechanics would also remove the FUN from shooting these games.

People can complain about anything these days... Might as well add "being killed" to that list -.-

Author probably only likes games like Arma, Operation Flashpoint, Red Orchestra, etc.
