Re: Bungie: 'Nobody Plays Shooters With A Mouse And Keyboard'

said by Vinceruos_t:

So you never played Halo 2, 3, or 4?

/facepalm

said by Ghastlyone:

That's the only one I've ever played.

I see reading comprehension isn't one of your finer skills?

Why would I play Halo 2,3 or 4, if the first one was a pile of crap? LOL

Keyboard/mouse completely dominate in the FPS realm. Bungie's ego is pathetic. I am pretty sure there have been tests/competitions to prove mouse/keyboard own in a FPS.

It seems about the only pc focused big name devs are valve and CDPR, and ya know it really shows. TW2 is good with KB+M and controller, likewise with valve games. They put honest to goodness effort into their games and it shows, even the stuff they port to console it quality.

I've been reading the comments on Destructoid, and I think this commenter reflects my feelings the best and provided one of the more entertaining responses:

said by destructoid commenter :
The guy is right. I remember when Halo first came out. After about 10 minutes after I had started playing it, with tears streaming down my face, I had to pause it. I went to my PC and I ripped my keyboard and mouse out of it. I took the keyboard -- an old-school Dell mechanical, one of those big tanks that weighed about 50lbs and had the perfect clack-clack sound -- and started beating a kitten to death with it. I had to ruin something innocent and precious, because the pure perfection of Bungie's system had pushed the evil in my soul to the surface, and it had to escape.

After killing the kitty I smashed the keyboard into the wall and I grabbed the mouse. In a moment of acknowledgement to Bungie's mastering of the shooter, I had to debase myself further. I dropped my drawers, spread out the cheeks of my ass, and proceeded to bugger myself with my own mouse. "I deserve this!", I cried over and over, "Oh, God, why?!" as I shoved the Logitech up my anus.

Only after I had lodged the mouse firmly up my own ass, and still covered in the blood of a sweet, cuddly kitten, did I throw my PC into a bathtub full of water and I burned my vast collection of PC games. I cackled as the flames reflected in my eyes, copies of Quake III, Half-Life, Medal of Honor warping and snapping in the heat. Only then was I able to return to Halo, properly humiliated and baptized in Bungie's supremacy. Since then, there has only been darkness punctuated by the light Bungie brought with every Halo release.

Thank you, Mr. Jones, for disregarding every other game and stating FACT. You are our gaming God, Halo our gaming Jesus. Let the writhing, dirty masses gather at the base of your alter and look skyward, mouths open, whilst you stroke yourself off and release your golden spunk into our gaping maws. We want it, OH GOD, we want it so much.

Considering the assertion that keyboard and mouse are inadequate, it makes me wonder.

Why is it my son has no desire to even own a console?

I think it has something to do with the reality that a keyboard and mouse own PC gaming and to say otherwise, well I can't actually think of a dumber assertion at this time.

It's not that all games require mouse and keyboard, just the ones like shooters and MMOs, otherwise known as PC gaming.

+1

in my golden days I would be able to run circles around controller users, using keyboard and mouse

when I watch someone else playing a fps with a controller, i just sit back and feel sorry for them, their controller use is about the equivalent of a retarded monkey playing the same game with a keyboard and mouse

they don't know what they are missing

something must be in the water at Microsoft because the whole corporation is getting more and more out of touch with their core customers and indusrty.

But on the flip side, more and more computer games are played on a 4-6" touchscreen.

I played the first Halo years ago. That's the only one I've ever played.

I thought it was a mediocre pile of crap to be honest. I never did fully understand all the hype behind it.

It looked bad, and was buggy as all hell.

I have almost the exact same opinion. When they ported it to the PC, I gave it a try. My first thought was that the guns were weak ass peashooters. I remember fighting the first boss and emptying all my ammunition into him, running out of the area and finding some guns on the ground, running back and emptying those guns into him, running out to find some more guns, etc. until the dude finally dropped. Then I quit and uninstalled that mess.

Didn't surprise me either. Looks like he came out for his daily feeding though.

I've never followed the Halo franchise at all. Did they even port the 2nd, 3rd, etc. to PC at all?

That's because you're an old fart stuck in the 80s with your stupid keyboard and mouse. Once you embrace the joystick, the light will shine and the greatness of Halo will finally be clear to you. But like I said, for that to happen, you must first rid yourself of the enemy and wash away your sins.

I never knew it, but apparently, for "Vista only." Nothing past #2 though.

I had a bro who had it on the pc, he said the xbox and pc had the same leader board, and you had to go down >180 slots to even find a console player on it. I laughed when I saw it.

i think this is what my buddy got to school some kiddies on COD:MW3 or 4 about a year ago. Not really sure.

»xim3.com/

But whichever one he got, he said was some funny $#!t going on. He said he wished he could have recorded it and posted the rantings up of the kids who thought that they were top dogs, then he switched from controller to KB/M combo.

PS3 if I recall uses USB keyboards as well by default. I have one and have never tried it so unsure of whether or not it WILL work. Dont have a USB keyboard to try it out.

And yes, that dude is on some serious medication if he thinks anything like that is going to happen anytime soon where controller kiddies, think that they are better when almost every single game for consoles has AIM ASSIST built into it. They just dont get it.

But yes, console is the easy way out for developers since every one of them is exactly the same specs. No thinking outside of the box for them...no sir! So then they have to TRY to spif it up for us PC users to play the game on something other than 640x480 32bit systems. And we see which developers have fallen by the wayside when they do crap like that.

Genuine baby boomer here.

Ahh for the good ole days when a keyboard was part of a typewriter that did nothing but type on paper.

I recall my first electric typewriter, man it was awesome.

I think if Sony and MS do what they might do with the next Gen consoles, this thread might become moot. They might kill console gaming.

LOL - I can't use a controller- too many buttons to try and remember which ones you need to use. They are just trying to make it fact so they do not have to do more work/programming.

This...I simply cannot use controllers. My hands are weird. Maybe it is all the years of using a kb and mouse.

Yep it is supported but only works for chat/internet/video. No games I've seen offer any WASD support.
