It makes sense you wouldn't understand WASD. The PS3 doesn't use it.

WTH are deviates?

Shanghaied says:
Agreed.

Not only is WASD just intuitive now, you have about 10 keys that are easily accessed while you're using it.

An analog movement system might be a bit more precise, true. But this has been the standard for decades.

WASD + mouse > any controller options.

Come on consolios....You don't have to lie to kick it.

You realize that's a verb right?

WASD is clunky, but once you get used to it, it's 10x better than controllers for precision.

But 10x worse in how it feels.

WASD is like fapping. Controllers are like sex.

WASD = Sex without a condom.

Controllers = Sex with this.

Ehhhh, you must be using one of those cheap WASD whores. You got to spend a little money for a nice WASD.

ESDF isn't bad, but I'd have to reach farther with my thumb to hit the ALT key, and I use that as a modifier.

I am sorry, but the thumbstick feels better.

You computer nerds just need to accept facts, m'kay.

Those teflon coated mice might be for you.

Thumbsticks feel way better if you're OK with clumsy, poor reaction times and the computer adjusting (aka "playing the game") for you.

I have zero confidence in thumbsticks. I don't like playing with 10 lb darts; takes way too much effort to hit the bullseye.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 7:33:20 AM PST
The issue with thumbsticks is they require a deadzone to operate efficiently.

However, it is easier to walk at varying speeds using a thumbstick.

"Thumbsticks feel way better if you're OK with ever having sex with an actual person, if not use a keyboard"

Fixed for you.

:P

Shanghaied says:
The biggest positives with tumbsticks are that, and being able to move in 360 degrees rather than just 8 directions.

Practically though, I think the benefits of this are fairly negligible. With a thumbstick, it's difficult to retask the thumb with other functions while moving.

Autoaim isn't as required with M/K due to the increased accuracy presented with them.

Accuracy is one of the reasons that 360/PC cross-platform shooter largely failed on PC and a possible reason why they didn't allow PS3/360/PC players to play CS:GO against each other.

When you pair a controller vs a mouse and without auto-aim, the average gamepad players will get stomped by anyone using a mouse. Thumbsticks cannot deliver the same level of control.

I would think the motor skills involved with manipulating a thumbstick would give you an edge when having sex with yourself, though.

Mouse and Nav Controller is obviously the superior combo.

Yeah that doesn't actually sound like a bad idea at all.
