No switch is necessarily objectively "better" at one thing or another. The "blues are for typing, blacks are for gaming, browns are in-between" thing is a myth, started by Manyak's own personal preference when he wrote the guide.
MX Blues are clicky and moderate weight and very popular, but a percentage of people (~20%) have trouble gaming on them due to hysteresis.
MX Browns are tactile but not clicky, and very light. They're also very popular. Almost everyone likes MX browns... but many consider them boring.
MX Blacks are linear and very heavy. People who don't like heavier switches have trouble typing with them, and they aren't as popular as blues or browns, but they're still well-liked.
MX Reds are linear and extremely light. They're also way over-hyped, since they really don't feel much different from browns.
MX Clears are tactile and heavy, and kind of hard to find. They have a following... Also there are "Ergo Clears" where you swap the spring from an MX brown/red/blue switch into an MX Clear switch to make it lighter.
