[RP] More Xbox 360 Games On Windows 8 Details - Page 11

post #101 of 135
C'mon enough with the controller vs mouse and keyboard.
Any decent gamers knows each has their strengths. No one enjoys playing a racing or fighting game without a controller, and we all know playing first person shooters without a mouse is near retarded.

The only reason I would want this feature would be because of console exclusive games like L.A. Noire and Red dead redemption basically games that should have been on the PC too in the first place but weren't.
I haven't read the article yet but if this were to be true, it would be awesome if they gave us the option to up the graphics the same as if it were released on the PC.

grow up a bit.

I used to be a console gamer exclusivley and found it incredibly difficult getting to use a keyboard and mouse. However I stuck at it and got used to it/good at it.

I'd much rather use a Dualshock 3 for Fifa instead of a keyboard and other sports games.

However as a general rule keyboard and mouse seams to be superior for FPS games games, but i'm still much better with a pad.



TL,DR: it's based on personal preference doesn't make you better/more skilled just because you use a particular input method.
Its not personal preference, one is better than the other. Keyboard and mouse is better for most game types except fighting/platform and maybe one Im forgetting. Just because you are used to controllers doesnt mean they are better, if you practiced on kb/m you would do much better in a short period of time.

There is way more precision and inputs and control which means you can use your SKILL because skill is use of your abilities to win. Controller has a much much lower skill cap than a keyboard mouse. Its a fact. The best example I can think of is RTS since you have so much to do and need it done instantly there is no way a controller could accomplish it.

TLDR

Keyboard Mouse >>>> Console in most cases excluding fighting, possible equal on platforming. Using a controller over keyboard/mouse limits the application of skill.

This. Crossplatform is the only way I'd be willing to pay, or play any game that uses GFWL / buy games from the GFW Marketplace.

Actually, I really don't mind playing fighting games on my mechanical keyboard. It feels closer to arcade buttons than a gamepad does.

Not about half the console gamers I talk to, they somehow think since they can get a 100 k/d in any given console game they would perform equally well against pc players.

I would just like to prove them all. Probably won't happen for a long time though since Microsoft would probably lose money from less people wanting to play on xbox.

Come at me bro.


Mouse is a lot easier, and I don't find it challenging enough. Just because you prefer a mouse, doesn't make you better.

yeah i've thought about this and the answer is simple, same reason they do now.

i dont see how this would change anything really. all they are saying is that you can play an Xbox game on your PC. if companies stopped developing for the PC altogether, then they would first have to make sure that not only would this idea work, but that it would be a 100% flawless platform and highly profitable, which i doubt Microsoft would or could guarantee (im sure they "would" but its the could that counts).

game devs are businesses, they will look at the bigger picture if they are smart. which they are.

if anything, this would only hurt Xbox console sales. since people may start to see a 2 for 1 kind of thing going with PC.
