First-person shooters: PC or Console?
 
Are first-person shooters better for you on a PC or a console? (Note there is only one correct answer to this question).

Trench 07-05-2009 10:31 PM

Um... The correct answer? The only one I've ever played is Republic Commando, and that was on computer. So I'm not really sure.

Da_Man_2423 07-05-2009 10:44 PM

Mouse and keyboard all the way.

Well...every first person shooter except for Halo has been better on PC...Halo is the only exception to the rule.

Having played Halo on PC I respectfully disagree.

Every type of shooter is better on PC. Off the top of my head, I can think of platformers and fighting games being more intuitive on consoles.

Anyone that says "console" must provide a Master's thesis supporting their beliefs, complete with Excel spreadsheets and in-depth visual aids to prove themselves. :carms:

EnderWiggin 07-06-2009 12:03 AM

PC, obviously.

_EW_

TriggerGod 07-06-2009 12:13 AM

No contest, console PC

Sabretooth 07-06-2009 01:56 AM

Needs a 'Real Life' option.

>_>

Fredi 07-06-2009 02:16 AM

PC, No other way :p

Jeff 07-06-2009 02:27 AM

Depends for me. Some games I just don't know why I prefer one or the other but it's not always PC or always console. I'd say in general I like multiplayer fps games on console (xbox live) and single player ones on PC but that is not always the case. Definitely like Valve games on PC (Left 4 Dead etc). So I wouldn't say I prefer one over the other. I will say it takes more skill/practice to be pro at console fps than PC though. Obviously that is why everyone likes them on PC better but I don't mind console controls at all.

Commander Obi-Wan 07-06-2009 03:33 AM

**** PC, console all the way. I haven't played a PC game, let alone a shooter game on PC, in the past five years. Mind you, I barely play my 360 anymore. Not until later this year when all the sequels come out.

Drunkside 07-06-2009 04:30 AM

Isnt a poll like this kinda useless? :xp: PC IS better, everyone who has played any shooters on both pc and console knows that...

Astor 07-06-2009 04:54 AM

I adapt easily to both - at a pinch, i'd say PC, but I'll happily play an FPS on console if it were an exclusive title.

True_Avery 07-06-2009 05:03 AM

For anyone who puts in Console, try precision aiming with a sniper rifle with a console joystick and get back to me.

Hell, mouse and keyboard third party attachments are banned from the 360 specifically because it makes you better at it. I think that says enough.

Epic Fail.

I like both. Keyboard/mouse is usually simpler/easier, but the same FPS on a console is usually more challenging and can be more fun depending on my mood.

Giant Graffiti 07-06-2009 11:34 AM

Neither.

Miltiades 07-06-2009 11:52 AM

PC, of course.

Mandalore The Shadow 07-06-2009 01:51 PM

Console i cant understand how anyone can find it EASY to play a 1st person shooter on a PC

Endorenna 07-06-2009 02:02 PM

The only FPS games I've tried are JK:Outcast, Republic Commando, BF1, and BF2. The only one on a console was BF2. I can play it in FP, but I really prefer third-person on everything. BF1, JK, and Republic Commando are all murder on the PC. I far prefer consoles.

Maybe I just like having the crouch button and the shoot button within reach of one hand. ;)

swphreak 07-06-2009 02:11 PM

I can play FPS on either.

SG-17 07-06-2009 02:56 PM

Neither, FPS are a load of garbage. TPS are where it is at. SWBF and SOCOM FTW.

You point where you want to shoot with a mouse, then you click the button. :p

It still amazes me how people keep picking the wrong answer.

Ah, I've always been better with joysticks. :p

RC-1183 07-06-2009 04:58 PM

the only games i have played on the pc is the orange box and fear but i would still have to say i like the console better.

K_Kinnison 07-06-2009 05:05 PM

PC.. I can be highly accurate with mouse aim. and my left hand plays the keyboard like a virtuoso pianist. My hands are just too big for the tiny console controllers

Negative Sun 07-06-2009 05:31 PM

FPS, I've only really played BioShock on the 360 but I'm PC all the way!

Alkonium 07-06-2009 05:38 PM

I'm good with either, but if I have to choose, PC.

Insignia_Enithma 07-06-2009 05:57 PM

PC, I find it impossible to aim in a FPS with those analogue sticks, or at least aim accurately and smoothly.

Chevron 7 locke 07-06-2009 09:36 PM

PC all the way. :D

Pho3nix 07-07-2009 08:37 AM

Definitely PC.

Jae Onasi 07-07-2009 12:47 PM

I picked PC because it makes Rogue Nine happy. And PCs are better anyway.

H-H-How?? Isn't it physically impossible to be more precise with a joystick than a mouse.

FPS games will always be better on the PC. :carms:

Stream 07-07-2009 03:57 PM

Has to be the 360.

I'm the other way around. My hands are so small, I can't use the keyboard easily. Heck, I can't even use the 360 controllers easily. -_- Playstation for me!

Titanius Anglesmith 07-08-2009 01:03 AM

I play both, but I prefer PC, of course.

Venom750 07-08-2009 09:57 AM

360 because the keyborad and mouse get a old after a while the controller i find suits better

LordTrilobite 07-08-2009 11:30 AM

In a shooter, aiming is important.
And the mouse is simply superior in terms of precision and stability.

However, needing to take the time to aim properly often means less pacing in a game, while consoles are better for fast-paced action-packed games where precision is less important, and reaction more important.

Ray Jones 07-08-2009 05:15 PM

Easy: shooters - PC, racing games - console. Poreid.
