It depends on what you're describing as better. Are you able to aim better with a keyboard and mouse? Totally. You're literally just clicking on somebody else's head on a screen. Does that make a more pleasurable or "better" experience? Entirely subjective.

 

It seems like it's a moot point, anyway. Whether you're playing on PC or console you're going to be facing off against people using the same input type.

I know a weirdo that's using a controller to play this on the PC. Apparently he is getting slaughtered.

Anyone want to play? 3 pages in, and I have yet to play with most people in this thread. I knew it, I'm surrounded by casuals.

As someone who has played FPS's both on consoles and on PC, I can say that while the mouse and keyboard are objectively a more effective/accurate control scheme for an FPS, it doesn't mean that sticks are completely nonviable. Mouse will always acquire a target faster and with more consistency than sticks (with equal levels of experience) but sticks allow a perfectly adequate level of accuracy for most people. (With a healthy amount of practice, like any skill in gaming)

 

Now, that said, the really interesting thing that happens is when you look at how the play dynamics change when everyone is extremely accurate vs. everyone is mostly accurate. When I played BF:BC2 and BF3 on the X360, I was able to make a lot more plays happen because it was understood that pulling off a headshot on a sprinting target was inherently difficult. On the PC however, people can twitch around and pop laser-like shots off, meaning you really can't allow yourself to be exposed at all. It makes for a totally different experience. While the console experience is exciting due to the relative leniency in letting you act "heroic" every now and then, the PC experience is exciting because of how incredibly vulnerable you are to any level of exposure from cover. One isn't really better than the other, I was just fascinated when I noticed the difference. And in each realm it is perfectly fine and accepted because everyone has the same relative advantages and handicaps.

 

Anyway, that's just my 2 cents on the matter.

My top 5 characters thus far:

 

#5 Reinhardt - Using the shield, you always feel like you're contributing with this guy. Bludgeoning people with your hammer is also super satisfying.

 

#4 Winston - I love his mobility. You can jump in, zap some jerks, then jump right back out. Going into angry monkey mode is also the best.

 

#3 Hanzo - Just a really fun character to play, you can dish out so much damage with those arrows - he's a sniper for people who don't like to play snipers. Climbing walls is awesome and the sonic arrow ability is really useful for the whole team.

 

#2 Pharah - Pick an area and fill it with rockets. Oh, and she can fly. What's not to like?

 

#1 Lucio - Everything about Lucio is fun. He can move SO FAST and can ROLLER BLADE ON WALLS. His weapon is also pretty decent and you can knock jerks off cliffs. And, of course, he provides effortless healing. If I ever really feel like I'm letting my team down I just switch to Lucio and know I'm doing some good.

About that Lucio point, how useful is the Lucio wallrunning? I've only ever done it just running around spawn but can never find a good place in game to use it.

Well, first and foremost it's just fun. As for how useful it is, I find it's best used when escaping or stalling after your nearby teammates have been wiped. You can also find some great videos online of people using it to recover after falling off a cliff.

Lucio is great, I just need to remember not to just leave it on healing. Boosting my and everyone's speed in the middle of a firefight seriously changes the momentum. Suddenly my team is twice as hard to hit and up in the enemy team's face. I really like to switch back and forth between both modes and just constantly "raise the volume" as often as possible. Also, I'm pretty sure the pulse-push does damage, so with lucio im pretty much just hitting every button all the time, haha.

The pulse push does do damage, and since it has a much wider cone of hit detection it's much much easier to hit with it as you're skating around like wild. I played with Lucio in a match last night attacking the objectives, and on both objectives we were able to push on and take it because I used my super, giving everyone shields and allowing us to team kill.
