I use whichever method I prefer. Sometimes I'll use a controller, sometimes M+k, sometimes I'll switch it up mid-game. Whatever is most comfortable at the moment or the one that provides the best control scheme.

This is why we game on PC. Options, tons of them. Do what you want and screw anyone that gives you grief (I.E. most of this board....)

Only if analog or d-pad is required, or the game is a button masher, or if it was explicitly designed for a controller (port of original console exclusive, emulation, etc). Even for most third person action, like Assassin's Creed or Tomb Raider, I use kb/m, especially if there's aiming involved.

TC you are about to be called pleb, plebian, peasant, creten, and/or poor.


Those who feel the need to name call because of their... inadequacies are the ones that deserve to be called peasants.

I play with a controller if I feel like it...sometimes (like with platformers) it's much better to use a controller...

Just about the only games where I would avoid a controller at all costs would be First person shooters and Real Time Strategy...and probably 4X/Grand Strategy as well.

For everything else I'll pick whatever feels most comfortable.

Only game I use a controller for is Dark Souls and I'll probably use one for Dark Souls II. I myself prefer the PS3 controller but everyone has their preferences.

Hell no, that's stupid. If I wanted to use a controller I'd play on my peasant consoles.

All the time.

Being comfortable > aiming accuracy. Well, for me at least. I play games for fun and playing palms down is not fun considering I do that 40-50 hours a week.

Depends on the game.
Genwunners are the lowest form of life.
Also, I rarely return to threads I posted on.
