i respectfully disagree. just because those are mechanical keyboards does not make them gaming keyboards. it might well be the case that mechanical keyboards are generally preferable to, say, logitech keyboards. some might prefer cherry black over cherry blue or brown switches. and software might permit creative key mapping. but in the end the steelseries keyboards are just that: mechanical keyboards. i'm not saying they're bad, but nothing particularly geared towards gamers (except the steelseries brand).
for my money, a gaming keyboard must at least incorporate macro keys and backlit keys. you may now commence with eyeball rolling. i'll be gaming...
I don't really know what you are trying to say... that mechanical keyboards are not better for gaming than rubber domes or that the steelseries 6gv2 doesn't have any feature over other other mechanicals? Well you are wrong about both
You don't seem to know much about mechanical keyboards. Its more about the feel about the keys, that makes them more suitable for gamers
its the low actuation point, the consistency of the keypresses, the durability and the NRKO found in almost all new mechanical keyboards. Those are all features that will benefit gamers
