Whether you're blastin n00bs in some MP JK2, or any other game, what do you prefer using: the keyboard, joystick, or a gamepad of some sort?

For me, it's the Keyboard.

Love for the game pad. I don't feel as in control with a keyboard and mouse. I like everything to be close by and quick to press. I am not a fan of joysticks. I like to use both hands - not just one.

god that sounds wrong.

:rofl: :lol:

Do you use the gamepad for FPS's such as jk2 as well?

Personally, I find that nothing can beat the responsiveness of mouse+keyboard.

No...that's why I feel so limited. I didn't have a computer at home till August - and I haven't invested in a gamepad. I am forced to use keyboards and it drives me insane. My aim is always off!! Now if I had a game pad...I'd kick some butt! That gives me an idea of something to ask for christmas. But I have games like Rollercoaster tycoon, SWGB and Sims - I couldn't use a controller for those...those types of games would be too hard to do because its WAY easier to click around with a mouse. But for JK2 I would definatly prefer a gamepad.

I want something between a keyboard and a gamepad

You've seen these gaming gloves thingies?

Where one hand his a 3d mouse with buttons, and the other is something between a joystick and a gamepad with many buttons formed after the hand.

I want that, i saw it on the discovery channel once, pretty hi-tech stuff

It was just a prototype tho, they won't release it in years they said.

But anyway, 3d mouse!
Which ment you can move the mouse in all directions, including in and out!

keyboard no contest. in my opinon, joysticks dont work for that kinda game, and gamepads are meant for consoles.....keyboards rule! :D

I only really feel comfortable w/keyboard and mose combo. The only time I got used to a gamepad was when I played Halo for a really long time.

I also use joystick, just for XWA though.

Driving - Wheel n pedals

Flight - Joystick

Everything else - Keyb n Mouse

Voice control however seems like a cool idea for example using the force by voice

I like to use a keyboard when ever possible, my mouse is really crappy and I hate to use it for games.

Well, one thing you might wanna look at is the Belkin Nostromo n50 Gamepad. It's a cross between the two...

Look it up some time.
