What about your right thumb, since, you know, it's the same distance and all.


The position of the right stick is mostly irrelevant since it's only used for the occasional minor camera tweak and not for all movement.

FPS games, or just about any shooter would disagree. While these types wouldn't account for all games released, they are likely the most popular of this gen.

I deliberately ignored those as any proper gamer knows those don't work(in an enjoyable manner) on a gamepad in the first place

As a proper gamer, I play and enjoy FPS games on both PC and console. so no you're wrong. I think you confused proper gamer with "in my personal opinion and experience with not bothering to ever learn to play FPS games with a controller".

Mouse is better in some way, BUT in some ways the controller is actually better as well.

I have plenty of experience with console shooters from before i had a pc capable of gaming very well, back in the ps2 era. Seeing as how the controls haven't changed one bit since then it's still correct to say fps games on a controller are slow, inaccurate, and often a pain to play.

FPS play OK with any controller.... but they definitely play the way meant to be played with a Keyboard +Mouse.

Millions of people enjoy FPS games on BOTH console and PC.
