Confirm/Deny: Controllers killed Arena FPS

Can't play games like Quake or UT with a controller. When Consoles are the majority and companies are too scared to make pc exclusives we get multiplat, slow paced shooters made with controllers in mind.

No, I just think that more game genres for more types of people being available has broadened gaming in general.

Clash of Clans, Candy Crush and Call of Duty killed Arena FPS. The unholy trinity of corporate greed.

controller>keybord+mouse

except for very few games like RTS (command&conquer)

keyboard +mouse can offer a little bit better precision in FPS games but it can never beat the comfort of holding a controller

What a wonderful thread. Both extremes trying to out-idiot each other.

Controllers may be less-precise, but they are more efficient. The reason kb/m is really only suitable for strategy games (and others) is due to the complexity of mechanics, sometimes justified sometimes not. Sometimes, kb/m are necessary because the game is too complicated to control with the limited inputs of a gamepad... other times the menus are so poorly-designed and un-intuitive that a mouse is required (why, hello, every single game Paradox has ever developed).

The people masturbating to kb/m controls, in general, are the same sort of gamers you see masturbating to other things (metaphorically, most of the time): casual gamers. The argument usually focuses on aiming precision with first-person shooters, which is (or should be) only of middling--at best--concern to most gamers.
