How do you play FPS games?

I use keyboard + mouse 22 81.48%
 
I use a controller 2 7.41%
 
I don't play FPSs (See results) 3 11.11%
 
Total:27

I must admit, I'm not a huge fan of FPSs, except for Borderlands, Crysis 2 and a couple of Call of Duty games that I have for PC (But I only play single player campaigns).

So, this week I got Call of Duty 3 for my PS2, and I'm having a very hard time trying to use the analog sticks to shoot. Gosh, how I missed the mouse to aim. I died a lot of times because I was trying to aim at the enemy and got shot in the act.

Is that a problem for you? How do you play your FPS games? Do you use keyboard + mouse or a controller?

Also, Call of Duty 3 is a very good game, I hope I get better at the analog sticks with time because it's so much fun.

If I'm playing on PC it's strictly mouse and keyboard only... but I can happily switch from PC to console, keyboard/mouse to controller, and feel comfortable with my aiming skill.



I'm mainly a console gamer, but I have played FPS games on PC before. I originally used a controller but switched to KB+M after people suggested I do so. I still have a bit of trouble adjusting but I think it's easier for some games than others. For Portal 2 and Quake it was fairly easy for me to adjust, for Half-Life and Deus Ex I struggled.



Yea, I never play FPS games on console, keyboard and mouse is just infinitely times better.



Depends on the game, games that are purely running and shooting I use M+KB, but games like far cry where you drive a vehicle, I use a DS4 controller, I hate driving with a KB.

M+KB of course! Gyro-aiming if not on PC.



KB + M is better, even better than gyro. So KB + M.

Really the only games that I think are better on controller are platformers, perhaps action games, and maybe racing? (which to be fair, is a decent handful of games)



Is there any reason not to play FPS on keyboard and Mouse on PC? Whether you desire to be a pro player or just want to stay relevant playing any competitive online FPS on PC you need the best/most precise Mouse you can get.

There are SP FPS games.

That's an understatement
