Now, I normally try to stay more or less neutral in this whole console vs PC thing because I feel it's mostly a non-issue. Consoles are great for relaxing and multiplayer-ing and PC games just have the better FPS interface. There are other reasons why I think gaming PCs and consoles should coexist peacefully but it's that FPS interface that's the topic for this thread. I was scrolling through the lists of known bugs/fixes for Crysis 2 and came across the " No auto Aim ? Why ?" thread. At first I thought it was a console-specific question but I realized I was in the PC forum. Intrigued, I clicked and I found a player asking for auto-aim to be re-implemented in the multiplayer portion of Crysis 2.
I had to laugh. He's basically asking for the game to be made easier so he can compete. Where does one get off feeling so entitled? What's the point of a shooter if you take out the skill of shooting??
I just really had to share this ridiculousness. I checked for repostness but couldn't find any.
I would like to start off by saying i was a console gamer and just moved to PC gaming and i dont like the feeling of a keyboard (not the mouse) ...
I really enjoy playing your game and playing it on a console is not an option im willing to take due to the responsiveness and frame rate. But the reason i enjoyed your game demo was because i could compete and be a competitor with the PC crowd with a joystick and as of right now i lose 9 out of every 10 gun fights. So im just asking if you can really consider re adding auto aim because the mouse is FAR superior to the controller in terms of being more accurate and was a real smart idea adding the feature it in the demo. The feeling of playing an FPS with a joystick without auto aim just feels so " alien." I just want to end off by saying it didn't feel Overpowered at all in the demo i still died as mush as the next guys but now its a whole different story i say it was fair with the auto aim please bring it back...
So I guess I have these statements then:
1) Why should I be demoted to console graphics if I like to use a controller?
2) It is really hard to fit my 62" 3D Samsung DLP on my computer stand.
3) If you guys are so good with a kb/mouse, why are you so scared of Auto Aim for controllers (sounds like fanboyism to me)
4) I can't get the leather couch to wrap around my computer desk properly.
Face the facts guys, with no new consoles in the forseeable future, controllers are a MUST for PC gaming. If you want to stick with the KB/mouse (oldschool), maybe you should keep to Diablo/Sim games.
Give me auto aim online (it is in SP) so I can show these kb/mouse fanboyz how to shoot!
