Understanding Video Game Controls

Video Game Controls-Keyboard or Controller?

Since we’ve already suggested what constitutes gameplay, it’s time to tackle the next tough subject of “Do gamers prefer to play on their keyboards as opposed to controllers?” I recently found a report on PC Overwatch players winning against players who use a controller.

It’s making me wonder about the debate because apparently at higher levels, shooting enemy teams in Overwatch is more precise on a keyboard which is why console users are buying a Xim4 adaptor to even the battlefield.

No I’m not dead, just taking a short break.

In case you’re wondering, no this blog isn’t shut down forever. Far from it, I’m going to share my opinion on Video Game Controls like I promised long ago…once I stop procrastinating and get back to work. Besides, I’m not giving up on blogging when I don’t even have my first review out yet.

I hope you guys admire the new site design because I’ve already decided on the background images. I’ll make it easier for you to find the latest reviews & walkthroughs by placing them in alphabetical order by title.

What to Expect in the Future

Greetings, fellow readers! It is time for me to begin addressing a small issue on PC Games for Steam. I’ve been proposing on how to publish my future Steam Library reviews. These will help introduce you guys to games you haven’t heard of nor tried yet. I assure you that I will try to review games using an objective approach. 

In the event I run out of material, I would greatly appreciate anyone willing to offer some suggestions on how to create my reviews. I’m going to be offering my personal opinion on video games. But I’d prefer to stay objective on why I would evaluate one game as decent enough and another as virtually unplayable.
