Why Use a Controller?

Why Use a Controller?

The debate over which is better, a controller or a mouse and keyboard, is one that will probably go on forever. Obviously, we believe strongly in controller gaming—and the reasoning is simple, really:

1. It's more comfortable. Simply put, everything on a controller is ergonomically designed to be right where you need it for easy access.  You don't have to contort your hands, or the rest of your body, into awkward shapes to reach the keys you need, because the buttons are just where you'd expect them to be.

2. It's more convenient. Whether you want to play at your desk, or in your living room, or in your friends' living room, a controller goes with you with minimal effort. Even when not traveling, a controller is easy to pick up or set down whenever you like.

3. It facilitates greater immersion in gaming. Comfort and convenience are great benefits on their own, but there's an indirect benefit that they offer--immersion. When you can't seem to find the keys to hit, have to take a break every so often to give your wrists and neck a break, or have to move your keyboard out of your lap to answer the door, then you're not as immersed in the gaming experience as you could, and would probably like to be.
