AWFUL. Controller only works for really specifically designed shooters, slow paced, forgiving, relying on atmosphere over interaction. I mean I enjoyed it in Gears and Mass Effect, though really neither of those is an FPS.

But in HL2? L4D? It's barely passable.

Ignore the idiot "reporter" who talks about KB&M being worse than a controller and for noobs... he's a professional idiot (his reviews are even worse).

Good news.
Basically you're saying "Awesome article because I agree with the title, but he's still an idiot for disagreeing with me on that point!"

I wish this mentality would go away - it is just as easy to buy a wireless 360 controller and play a PC game on a couch. My PC is hooked up to my HDTV and I am reclining in my Lazy-Boy chair as I type this, in fact.
You mean PCs can go anywhere!?

I agree with you here... people just can't think out of the box. I personally have mine in my office because I don't have to share my monitor with the others in my house, but if it was just me, I'd definitely have it on my HDTV.

The problem is that people don't think beyond the 'beige box' with respect to computers... there's so many great small form factor cases, or even cases built for a Home Theatre PC that would fit right in next to your consoles and other stereo equipment... PCs can be ANYTHING, which is why I think they are the real future not consoles (a console is an appliance, a PC is a tool). Not that I have a problem with consoles, but if the 'masses' would understand and imagine having PCs installed everywhere or anywhere in their homes, that could do anything including play games, and be upgraded incrementally as they see fit, then consoles would simply lose their appeal.

/rant off..

Otherwise, I'm glad that this game isn't being dumbedd-down for PC. I don't find the fact that the graphics and/or controls are better on PC as being a real big deal, but the fact that the PC version is being acknowledged at all is good news - usually it's the console version and a little "Oh, yeah, it's coming to PC too - not sure when, but it will, and maybe it'll be good... we're not porting it ourselves".

Sounds good, amazed that a developer is actually willing to promote one platform over another instead of the standard PR that all platforms will be equal and you will get the same experience.

Another argument I wish to debunk is the perceived lack of co-op or same room multiplayer on the PC. I have two gaming machines in the same room, and when buddies come over, we start both up and have a pretty sweet gaming experience competitively or cooperatively. And with a 360 controller, a game like Left 4 Dead or Serious Sam can even handle splitscreen multiplayer on the same machine, especially when I output to the TV. And Street Fighter IV on the PC can handle same machine multiplayer when two controllers are plugged in.

With the versatility of the PC, the only real difference b/w consoles and PC is the cost, ease of access, and visual fidelity. All this other crap about control schemes, being in the living room, multiplayer with buddies, sitting on the couch, is not exclusive to any system.

That doesn't make him incorrect for pointing that out.

It was the only article I saw mention the quote... I would have linked to a different one if I saw one at the time.

And no matter what topic it is, no matter what platform it is, that writer is an idiot. Are you seriously defending the idea that mouse aiming is for noobs who need an easy game?
