People who think a controller is even on par are a joke. Its like if you want to go play baseball and your friend brought a wiffle ball bat and tee. If you sit properly at a computer it is comfortable. Not having a proper computing area or a comfortable chair is not the fault of the PC. In fact the generation of today doesnt watch TV hardly at all, they get most of their entertainment from the PC and its shifting dramatically towards that.
If your hand bothers you from computer use its because you have improper form.
Most people aren't the competitive type and thats obvious. However people who watch sports realize they cant ever be Micheal Jordan, however they recognize this skill and support the rules and equipment of the NBA even if they cant use them themselves, because they know its the best system. You can play games or sports for fun, but there should also be professionals just like there is in sports.
Your games list is based on the fact that you have used a controller for longer. I played console cuz I didnt really have PC until I was 18. I had played controllers for 13 years or more. At first I didn't like it but I quickly learned and I could never go back to a controller. And I realized how horrible console games are.
Ill say that yes fighters, platformers, and racing are better with a controller than a keyboard. However fighters with an arcade pad, and racing with a wheel/pedals, or flight games with a joystick are superior as far as I know. I even plug in my wired 360 control for those types of games.
None of those games u listed take skill. The only games that really require skill are versus a human opponent anyway.
I mean you can literally play controllers with your face. This quadraplegic gamer called Nomad plays with his face and is actually pretty good. Im not trying to make fun of him but the human face isnt designed to be able to do complex activities. Our hands let us do all sorts of crazy things and controllers just limit that. Its just wrong. Controllers are an abomination of gaming.
As for comfort, it doesn't matter how i sit or place my keyboard. I still get a strain in my forearm after about an hour of play. I never experience this problem when typing or doing regular internet surfing. But as soon as I start playing movement and click intensive games like batlefield then I develop cramps. I grew up with a controller in my hand starting in 1991. I played PC games growing up (now 22), but didn't get seriously into pc gaming till around mech warrior 4 and then slouched after that till about 4-5 years ago when I built my current rig.
Because I don't have the same views as you doesn't make me wrong. When I see someone flip out over games similar to the angry German kid video or start fiending for games then I feel sad for gamers. And if you feel the need to be competitive then go join MLG or something. But don't force me to change the way I want to play. I don't dictate how you play you don't dictate how I play. If i want to play with a controller in between my ass cheeks, then let me. It's an easier kill for you. It's more fun for me.
