Gamepads vs keyboard

Carson Sanchez
Carson Sanchez

Why do so many people prefer gamepads and claim that they "cannot play" with keyboard controls?

For me it's the opposite, I find keyboard much more comfortable since I feel like I can press more of the important keys at the same time. Attack, jump, dash/dodge/parry/whatever, possibly another key like run or crouch, and 3 movement keys can all the pressed at once on a keyboard. I just saw a gamepad advocate struggle because apparently jumping around and aiming/shooting down at the same time was hard for him, but that's not even an question on a keyboard since you can press all of those keys at the same time without even thinking about it.

Furthermore I've never ever used a gamepad on PC where the analog sticks weren't utterly fucked and pointing in wrong directions and having enormous dead zones at random positions, and I've tried at least 6 completely different ones bought from different places including an expensive muh pro gaymer gamepad.

It depends on the kind of game. Gamepads and joysticks are better for fightans, platformers, racers, shmups, anything consoley or arcadey. Meanwhile, keyboard and mouse are better for first person shooters, strategy, adventure, and so on.

I understand gamepads for games that can make use of the 360 directions and variable depth of analog sticks, like 3D platformers. There may also be a few games where the control scheme favors the ability to hold fingers on the shoulder keys, but pretty much anything else is better with a keyboard or keyboard+mouse in my opinion, especially 2D platformers.

Carter Gray

Controllers are better for casual shit that you dont even have to try, like these over the shoulder TPS games from consoles. I also use them on games where you have to press a button quickly multiple times do something you need all the time like a dash.

Really? I just have a 360 controller I bought specifically for my computer, it works out of the box just fine, even on Ubuntu.

The true center of a joystick "drifts", that's why you have a deadzone, to add more onto joysticks, the actual position on the sticks get rounded off.
Honestly it's better to get full analog arcade sticks, racing wheel or those fancy laser keyboards, even though it's 0 to 255.

I've tried all kinds of software adjustments to it but nothing ever truly fixes them, usually I prefer keyboard controls to gamepads even when I'm playing 3D adventure/platformer games because the joysticks are so utterly unworkable.

When you need/want to use it like a mouse, instead of a stick, the magnet (as shown in the diagram) will turn off, letting the ball spin loose like a normal trackball, giving you mouse-like control.

If you think I'm kidding, I can pretty much prove Controllers are damn close to surpassing KB+M in FPS games by using my 3 year old Controller set up for STALKER as an example. And now that I have a Dualshock 4 Controller, I've even gotten over the Inventory control hurdle by using the trackpad to drag and drop items easily, as one would with a mouse.

Even if Analog was limited to only specific keys that would need it, I doubt they would ever be cheaper than the most expensive controller (within reason of course. Ex: the Elite controllers)

A regular xbox controller is what, $50? That's 5x as much as any sane person should be willing to pay for a god damned toy. I am not even joking, modern controlers are overpriced plastic.

Kevin Brooks

Dualshock 4 is $60, and you get a hell of a lot for that.

Good luck finding a good mechanical keyboard with or without a mouse at that price or lower.

I am not using my keyboard for a modern QTE shitfest with mandatory button mashing.
Still the precision offered by a mouse is unparalleled when compared the shitty analog sticks of a controller. Most controllers have a shitty dpad too so any precision based platforming is dead on arrival.

Kevin Robinson
Kevin Robinson

Mostly is comes down to what your body is used to dealing (it's difficult to swap between them if you have years of experience with one or the other.
Also, unless you're a particularly high-level player, the cap on what you can do with either is more likely to be personal than rooted in the hardware. Obviously FPS and RTS/RTT are an exception to this rule.

Coolermaster CM Storm comes with cherries (mine has brown, I think blues are also an option) and I paid $45 dollarydoos for it, so it's certainly available for less than $60 burger bucks.

If your game doesn't involve pointing in directions, mice are not useful. Keyboards lack things like analog inputs, pressure sensitivity, directional pads, and no triggers. Keyboards are useful for games with a lot of commands that are simple in execution.

Gamepads are better for everything else.

Sounds like a faggot who's never developed mastery of his preferred tools. That's been a common controller skill since games like Mega Man and Contra. Maybe earlier than that.
I've never ever used a gamepad on PC where… and I've tried at least 6 completely different ones
As a rule, don't buy any game accessories marked for pro gaymerz, they're usually shit, and always overpriced. Just use an PS or XB controller.
Arcade flight and flight sims are objectively better with analog sticks or flight sticks. Have you never played Ace Combat? Keyboards are great because they have a large number of inputs, but some games are objectively worse without certain specialized inputs. This was made extremely obvious during the transition to analog sticks in the 90s. Try playing a 3D platformer like Mega Man Legends 2 using the standard PS1 controller, and then try it with a dualshock. When you have bullets coming at you from every direction, you're going to want more than the 8 directions enabled by the D-pad to escape. Using WASD for a game like that is the same. It's doable, but objectively worse.

Parker Ortiz

Never mind that the DS4 has even less pressure sensitive buttons than the DS3 and 2 and the fact that all modern controllers have completely trash Dpads.

First off, let me say I love keyboard+mouse. I play all my first person shooters with kb+m, but all your points are bullshit.
keyboard much more comfortable since I feel like I can press more of the important keys at the same time
You can most certainly press at least 4 buttons comfortably at once on a gamepad (bumpers+two face buttons), 6 if you also press both triggers, but there's hardly ever a time, even on PC exclusives where you need to press that many buttons within a very small time window.
I just saw a gamepad advocate struggle because apparently jumping around and aiming/shooting down at the same time was hard for him
Surely this man has brain problems. I've never met anyone this retarded, so I seriously don't know what to tell you.
but that's not even an question on a keyboard
It's not even a question on the gamepad.

I've never ever used a gamepad on PC where the analog sticks weren't utterly fucked
Did you just get the cheapest gamepad you could get? I always use a DS3 for emulation, and it works fine.
including an expensive muh pro gaymer gamepad
What controller was this exactly? I know there were lots of complaints with those special xbox one controllers being broken, but other than that I don't know what to say.

I specifically mentioned flight sticks, and differentiated between Arcade Flight and Flight Sim. You would play Ace Combat with a controller, but not a proper flight sim, in which you would need a keyboard in addition to a flight stick, unless you're a richfag who has a full cockpit setup.

Not required, a keyboard and mouse will work just as well depending on what you're used to. All the controller gimmicks are irrelevant, if you can move and jump with digital input then a keyboard suffices. Mouse is better for camera control too.

Carson Sanders

Maybe but I've always found it easier to play 2D platformers, emulated or otherwise, with a gamepad instead of a KB/M.

Conversely KB/M is the only way to play a FPS/strategy/adventure game.

Then theres specialized peripherals, like arcade sticks, flight sticks, and steering wheels, which are deisgned specifically for a genre or individual game.

Two of those categories suffer if they are played exclusively with a KB/M

Daniel Hernandez
Daniel Hernandez

Try enjoying Nier Autómata on a keyboard, it sucks.

Games with less number of commands but that require more precision may be better played on a keyboard. As I experienced with dustforce. The default layout may feel awkward at first but eventually it's evident it's for the best performance

If you spend on simulator peripherals it's your choice but a good game pad is $40 at most and does the job for a wide range of games.

It's just a matter of preference for most games, some people find controllers more comfortable. I got used to them through playing the PS2 and just find them more comfortable to use for some games but I will nearly always use a keyboard for things like RTS and FPS.

This is 3D platforming that is exclusively played on the PC.
That's not what people mean when they say 3D Platformer, they mean a game like the 3D Marios. You posted an FPS. Furthermore, that's a physics exploit in the Source engine which emerged, not something that was designed.
Do tell me how you'd do this better with a controller.
I wouldn't, because I'm a shit surfer. But giving a skilled player degrees of movement in the air, rather than digital movement, could open options to improve how they maneuver. Of course, the majority of movement in surfing is done by moving the mouse, because it's the only tool which allows for directional precision among the ones which the original game was specifically designed for, the mouse and keyboard. Surfing wouldn't be directly improved by simply moving to a controller, because an analog stick is less precise than a mouse, which matters greatly for the head movement. However, surfing could be improved by degrees of movement. Suppose you could use a controller in your left hand instead, or that your keyboard also had an analog stick to the left of WASD. You would be able to make fine directional corrections mid-air without having to alter where you're looking with the mouse. That is an objective improvement, and you'd better believe that someone as skilled as the person in that video would learn to take full advantage of it, since it's another tool at his disposal.

But again, surfing is an emergent exploit, not a designed concept, and while it contains platforming in 3D, it is not the 3D Platforming genre. I was asking that you counter the argument for something like Super Mario 64.

Anthony Clark

See, your personal definitions of 3D platformer are irrelevant, CS surfing is 3D platforming because it requires you to jump from platform to platform. And it's not an emergent exploit, surfing has been around for almost as long as the game itself. What makes Mario64 hard, the level design or the shit ass controls and camera spawned from Nintendo's not knowing what they were doing with 3D yet?

Dominic Cruz

In what way would I be gimped by using a keyboard and mouse when playing Mario 64?
I have drawn it out. An analog stick is the most direct way to handle movement because it allows for more than 8 directions. Note the final rotated Start. A KB+M can achieve the same number of directions in conjunction with each other, but require twice as many movements to do so. You essentially have to use the mouse to reorient the keyboard's 8 directions every time you want one that's not in the current 8. A mouse can achieve the same degrees of motion as an analog stick, but it doesn't reorient itself to center, meaning the player has to handle it, and if speed is a question, programmers have to come up with bullshit workarounds to interpret how fast the mouse is moving, rather than just interpreting how far a stick is pushed.
requires
You keep arguing over what's required, and nobody else is doing that. An analog is better for the task, not required.
See, your personal definitions of 3D platformer are irrelevant,
That's not my personal definition, that's the definition that fucking everybody uses for that particular genre.
CS surfing is 3D platforming because it requires you to jump from platform to platform.
Just like every game with character creation is a roleplaying game, right?
What makes Mario64 hard, the level design or the shit ass controls and camera spawned from Nintendo's not knowing what they were doing with 3D yet?
That has absolutely nothing to do with whether an analog stick is better than a mouse and keyboard for 3D Platforming, even in that specific game.

Something like GTA is best with a gamepad because of how many different types of vehicles you're going to be getting in and out of, as are fighting games. Flight games are best with a HOTAS. Driving games are best with a FFB wheel and pedal set. And everything else is best with K&M.FPS are easily the best example of just how superior a game can be with a K&M setup as compared to a controller. People on console legit consider those XIM 4 things cheating on first person shooters.

The only games I prefer with a gamepad are 3D platformers, and there are so few of those nowadays that it's kind of irrelevant. I don't play fightan, and for everything else I prefer K+M for one simple reason: you can play one handed.

I get the arguement that keyboard and mouse are better, I just like having a smaller range of buttons that do multiple things via XPadder. Unreal has a center-snap button, XPadder allows me to toggle this option and even press 1 button to completely change my button mappings. Keyboard and mouse are still superior, but I also really really like the Dualshock 4 controller. That being said, whether I use a keyboard and mouse or a controller I am still shit so I don't really care. Also Fallout Tactics on a controller is actually kinda fun, just gotta git gud (ALSO FUCK THE FIRST LEVEL, RNG CAN KISS MY MELEE/HEAVY GUNS BUILD ASS).

funny thread cause at this precise I've been on a gaming console binging

my perspective, gamepads are definetely way more comfortable to play with, you can just sit back and relax with arms down, while keyboard+mouse encourages basically being hunch over the table
games designed to be worked over gamepads (aka most console games) also need to have more streamlined interface, since you don't have a gazillion keys to remember, keys are mostly context sensitive and that is good game design

the sticks however are a big annoying thing, aiming with a gamepad is really the worst,
my specific one (generic dualshock) is complete trash, and I was looking forward to buying a higher brand one but maybe sensitivity is screwed up with all of them?

another thing about gamepads over PC too, is game compatibility, somehow the xbone one sort of set the standard for most games, to the point that even a playstation one is not that compatible
some games will have mapping while others will straight out only support xbox,
plus steam also helped out with that, providing their own mapping mechanics, unfortunately steam doesn't provide a sensitivity feature, and a lot of times rumble will not work properly

so tl;dr, gamepads are cool and confortable, they're pretty good to use for most gaming experience, but lack standards for the PC, a lot of times lacking in compatibility with games

Hudson Nguyen

Those 180° turns? No, you console pleb. Controllers can only move at a rough speed so you can only have low percise turning or high unpercise turning because the input is indirect whereas mouse is direct. If you need to turn 40 times you can just move your mouse over the whole desk and if you need to turn 10° you can just do it. Controllers are only good for racing and even then there are racing wheels and pedals to compete with.

It depends on the game and the quality of the controller. I'll take KB+M over an Xbox controller for any 2D platformer, but a controller with a good dpad is the default for me. 3D beat-em-ups like DMC or Bayo are specifically designed with the button layout of a contemporary controller (360, Dualshock, etc) in mind, so the combos are a lot more difficult to pull off with KB+M. Funnily enough, despite the godawful port of Dark Souls 1 the sequels actually have excellent controls in their PC ports. And of course, any PC exclusive is borderline unplayable without a KB+M.

Manlet detected. Those things are smaller and more obviously designed for a child's hands than even the xbone controller.
The only way to play with two joycons is with them separated from the console, and without the shoulder adapter/spacer things on. Playing with your hands asymmetrically folded over your stomach under a blanket in bed is the most comfy controller ever - no other controller has addressed the intrinsically uncomfortable and un-ergonomic situation of having your elbows, wrists, and hands actively tensed in an unnatural position for an extended period of time.

That said, I still most reguarly use the pro controller, but the detached joycons is truly a step in the right direction for traditional controllers. The wagglan bullshit they're trying with Odyssey does work much better with them detached, and it's conceivable that other games would find uses for trivial convenience features or button reassignment/duplication to the gyros if one was in each hand. I haven't played ARMS which was supposed to capitalize on that.

Keyboard is superior for anything without analog controls. Controllers these days have garbage D-pads if they even have D-pads at all, so if you're not putting the analog stick to use you're better off with the keyboard. That includes fighting games since a keyboard is basically a hitbox anyway.

Mice are a gimmick, nobody's going to bother with graphical UIs once people learn to use the command line.

I actually prefer using a keyboard when all the inputs are digital. I only like a controller when I need an analog stick.

Unfortunately, shit-eating indie fuckheads have completely forgotten or never learned (in the case of doujin developers) about the technological progression towards total customizability that happened in the '90s and like to use such horribly awful default mappings with no way to change them that I am often forced to use a gamepad.

is that unnatural to you?

This is a stupid question. Have you ever once sat that way without a controller in your hand? With your hands aligned with each other, fingers almost touching? I'm going to hazard a no.

But, have you ever sat leaning forward with your elbows/forearms on your knees/thighs with your hands dropped down loosely between them? Of course you have. You can play with the detached joycons this way. You would have to unnaturally tense and hold up your wrists to hold a controller in a comparable posture.

The point is, if you're going to be deliberately obtuse, you don't have to admit anything. You can say you always sit in chairs and couches completely straight, always how they were "meant" to be sat in, never putting your feet up, never crossing your arms while on the couch, never lying down on the couch, etc. but for people who aren't idiots afraid to give credit where it's due, in all of these poses, even with arms crossed, you can still play with the detached joycons, and comfortably. Something that is utterly impossible to do with a controller.

Jose Gray

Lack of key mapping is one of those things I can never forgive. Those fucking games where you need a mouse, but movement is locked to WASD (not superior ESDF) and yet the key to pull up your map is M. Fucking ridiculous.

Jaxson Rodriguez
Jaxson Rodriguez

Games with repeated button presses like some action platformers and scrolling shooters suck on keyboard, depending on your model. After an hour or two, my fingers can actually get sore. It's also pretty much pointless to use a keyboard and mouse on a game like Dark Souls which has lock on anyway, unless you really care about those sick 360 bow headshots. There's a reason repeated button presses are much more common in games made for console than PC. Your mustard race memes ignore the fact that PC is the spiciest of mustards because it has the ability to use any input device.

The way I see it, the whole point of a dpad is to allow you to make quick directional inputs, and the dpad should have very good feedback to accommodate this. The dpad on that controller suffers from the same issues the Xbox original and 360 controllers do. They feel mushy, and it can be difficult to tell if you are inputting a cardinal or intermediate (diagonal) direction. Nintendo style cross dpads are alright, but their blocky shape makes it a little less comfortable to use over time. Dualshock dpads are great because it's divided into 4 individual buttons which are NOT connected like a "see-saw" in the way the Xbox dpad is. You are 100% sure every time you enter a diagonal input, the buttons are soft and slightly angled so they feel nice even after extended sessions.

Sorry if I sound like a neofag shill, I just happen to think that the Dualshock is Sony's greatest contribution to gaming. In fact I'm amazed that a dumbass executive didn't totally ruin the Playstation controller design yet.

FPS is always keyboard

Everything else is usually Gamepad.

I have a cheap Logitech F310 and it works for basically anything besides a true flight sim or an FPS. It has the switch analogue/digital mode button under the back button, which is irritating every so often. I can even beat tryhards on fighting games who exclusively use those custom arcade cab controllers hooked up to the USB.

Most games don't need a keyboard really. I don't know if it's because they are becoming more and more casual, but why would you want to play Dark Souls 2 on a keyboard? You'd get raped in arena.

I used to think driving games were much better with a controller, then I noticed that pretty much every driving game I play which allows for both L-Analog and Dpad steering, I tend to default to the Dpad and dither like a motherfucker for precision correction.

Still gotta have a good stick for flight sims, though.

Hudson Butler

simple, people who play with kb+m usually do over a desk with a smaller screen, eg PC gamers, which would be usually a drag to share with a second player (thus why PC evolved into network mp)

which also relates to

yes, if you're resting your back on any kind of seat and not slouching to the sides

I can understand the mouse for aiming, but Jesus Christ, I absolutely hate detest a keyboard for movement and all else. It's the absolute opposite of intuitiveness and ergonomics. And there is no analog movement for WASD so often there is a separate button for "sprint" or something. Couple that with how far your hands are from one another; everything feels so detached.

Contrast that with a controller where everything is in one nice, neat place in your hands. After years of controller play, I still cannot get used to M+K and in fact still use a controller when I play things like TF2 and L4D2 on PC. The only time I use M+K is if I'm forced to or it's just about impossible to play without one otherwise (CS:GO).

its neither fish nor meat my friend
having a mouse makes aiming more precise because you engage a gorillion more muscles than when you use a thumbstick
then again movement becomes less precise because instead of having a finger per cardinal direction you only have your thumb
while its still better than just a controller its still worse than m/kb

Ethan Martin

Seems like your thumb movement wouldn't be as controlled as a normal gamepad because it's not being supported by your other hand. I think I'd rather use some sort of game board type thing instead

Colton King
Colton King

On the one hand, Controllers tend to be more intuitive, less intimidating, and don't require the same space to use effectively. On the other hand, Keyboards will always beat out controllers when it comes to performance. I've heard people make the "muh analogue" argument as being some sort of great boon, but I've yet to see it be seriously advantageous in a single competitive context and it's usually too poorly implemented by developers to ever make a huge difference anyway.

Most top players use arcade sticks. The ones that use game pads usually use the d pad rather than the analogue stick. It's all just simple Boolean inputs, which means that there isn't anything theoretically stopping someone from using a keyboard in the way that a mouse's ability to receive rapid, exact movement data vs controllers being limited to accelerated directional data over time physically prevents the possibility of anyone ever making it to top level cs or quake with a controller. The real reason you'll never see a keyboard being used at a top level is because they're not tournament legal unless you essentially turn them into a hitbox.

With a gamepad you move like a rabbit but turn like a tank. With a keyboard you move like a shitty rc controller, but can turn on a dime. By abusing the dime turning potential of the mouse, you don't need to fight the 4 directional movement, and can move in the direction you need to faster than the gamepad can. That's why those guys in surfing/bunny hopping videos move their camera so much.
