If a game doesn't support keyboard and mouse controls, then it's not worth playing.

That's what my new co-worker said when I suggested he should play some console exclusives.
Does he qualify as a PC elitist?

Perhaps, but it seems there is more to this story than meets the eye.

I'd gladly do money-matches with him and his kb/m on SSF4 and MVC3.

Do you even "qualify" as a PC elitist? I thought you just downgraded as a human being in the first place.
Enjoy the effing games, that's all. BTW, Alan Wake on PC looks great.

That only goes for FPS games.

I don't qualify as pc elitist because a own a Wii.
And a PS3 and a 360.
I do think that pc is the best gaming platform, though.

Funny, I can't stand keyboard and mouse controls. I have a PC capable of running FPS, and I've played tons of hours of Team Fortress 2. Sorry, but nice try.

you can have my DCUO gamepad when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Just tell him that his mom didn't support keyboard and mouse controls either, but she was worth playing.

Posted on May 11, 2012, 5:13:03 PM PDT
Unfortunately, none of the consoles support keyboard and mouse, and...as everyone knows...if a game is on PC, then it isn't worth playing.

Sounds like your co-worker enjoys shoving penis-like objects into his rectum while wearing make-up.

I found out that he actually owns a PS3 since the day it came out, but has never played any games on it because of "horrible graphics". He uses it as bluray player and Netfix streaming.

He sounds delusional.

Well some prefer k/m on f.p.s and r.t.s though myself i will only play computer games with a southpaw gamepad as i can't stand k/m.

SOUTHPAW-LEFT HANDED so rather than move on left and look on right i move on right and look on left though this works the action buttons are now on the wrong side next to move not next to freelook but it's the only way i can play dual analog games.

I can play touchscreen games like escape plan,god of war,lbp,racing games or other single analog or d-pad as movement fine it's only when freelook gets added that things go wrong and imust use southpaw.

This kind of reminds me of a certain d-bag from my work. He has many quotes that induce eye-rolling with me, such as:

"I'd give Xenoblade Chronicles a shot, but I just can't get past the Wii's graphics."
"How does it feel knowing that your PSP is obsolete now?"
"I haven't touched a DVD in over 6 years. They make me want to poke my own eyes out."
"Ha! That isn't an iPhone."
"Good God...are you seriously playing Super Mario 3? That game's over 20 years old."

...I hate that guy.

he certainly qualifies as a reductionist of all possible enjoyments.

In reply to an earlier post on May 12, 2012, 7:41:11 PM PDT
It depends on the genre. Some games just don't feel right with a gamepad, but some pretty much REQUIRE a gamepad to play well.

Examples:
M+KB required:
Diablo (and clones such as: Titan Quest, Torchlight, Loki, Sacred series), Starcraft (and other RTS games), competitive FPS (excluding Borderlands coop, CoD survival, anything PvE ((including single player)), things like that are okay with autoaim and thumbsticks, but go ahead and try UT2004 with a gamepad against M+KM players)

Is much better with a gamepad:
Arkham Asylum/City, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning(and other beat-em-ups), most 3rd-person shooters (including GTA series, Saints Row series, Just Cause series), fighting games, and pretty much anything involving a super hero (Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, any Spider-Man game, X-Men Origins: Wolverine)

In reply to an earlier post on May 12, 2012, 10:44:38 PM PDT
I would have to agree on the examples, except for me Borderlands I cannot aim for crap with the ps3 controller but I play pretty well on pc version.
