I’ve had this debate before with friends. They insist (wrongly) that the standard console control pad is better for FPS games than the mouse and keyboard combination. I merely laugh mockingly at such a proposition, firmly believing that for speed and accuracy of aim a mouse is markedly superior to a control pad, granted the buttons on a controller make selecting and using weapons somewhat easier but this isn’t enough to swing it in its favour.
What say you gamers of the dope?
btw I admit that I have a somewhat unorthodox control method, I use the right mouse button for ‘forward’ and the W key for the standard right mouse function (usually to zoom in/use sights). I had to give up on the ARMA 2 game because it wouldn’t allow me to swap these functions.
