    QOTW?

    That's not a question, it's a joke.

    Other than the Dark Souls franchise, keyboard & mouse.

    Gamepads, due to their limitations, have removed a lot of the challenge we used to get in games. There is a reason why auto-aim and gamepads go hand in hand.

    come on now .. we have pc's so it's kb&m
    only consoles should have a controller. it's for the lesser people that cant pat there head and rub there tummy
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true

    Re: QOTW: Joypad or keyboard and mouse?

    I use to be a hardcore pc gamer would swear by the keyboard and mouse for all games. but then I had a house fire and lost all my pc stuff so I picked up a ps3 and now that I have a gaming pc ones more I use controller for almost all games ..I picked up a steam controller and I really like it for a lot of games but aiming in a FPS is so hard with it

    Re: QOTW: Joypad or keyboard and mouse?

    Keyboard and mouse for pretty much everything, although for the odd game or two I'll use a controller purely because it just works better for the gameplay. I prefer to use keyboard and mouse though.

    Weird combo of controller for driving and keyboard/mouse when walking about.

    But as others have said already, it depends entirely on the game itself, some work better with a keyboard/mouse (all first/third-person shooters for the most part IMHO) whilst many other games work better with a controller (for example, a game like little nightmares would be horrible without a controller, same for any sort of driving game.)

    Re: QOTW: Joypad or keyboard and mouse?

    I just stopped gaming. Problem solved.

    But really, I think for what I played in the past, keyboard and mouse are better. But now that much of my gaming time consists of playing alongside my kids, for the likes of LEGO games, platformers and various other games I play on the HTPC, a wireless controller is much more comfortable.

    I still play adventure games and hidden object adventures, and these normally don't work with a controller, but I mostly play them on mobile, where touch is the interface.
