Also I want to be comfortable and sit on the couch. But you're right, I did grow up using a controller. Nintendo, Sega, PS1 and then Xbox. Only then did I try some PC games. I guess it's what you're used to. Once I met a woman who was taught to use the mouse upside down, so basically the cursor moved on the screen inversely to the movement of your hand and I just couldn't wrap my head around it but to her it was natural.
I have the full setup for flight sim (not set up at the moment do to room renovation). Yolk and/or joystick, rudder pedals, and most of the avionics stack (radio, fuel controls, etc). Would love to do the primary flight instruments but they are stupid expensive.

ah I had the equivalent version for a racing sim (iracing) with a seat, steering wheel, pedals and gearstick. That was fun. And yes, when you start to get into the high quality stuff with direct drive steering, force feedback brake pedals, things do get stupid expensive.

I was pretty good on the xbox. My kd ratio was 4.2 iirc with something like 40K kills. Not sure if that’s considered good in the pc world

Just got my son playing Borderlands 2. He was all about the Fortnite. Now he realizes that game kinda sucks, but his friends aren't with him.

being good on the xbox doesn't translate to being good at fps on the pc, hit boxes are different and consoles typically use aim assist to help.


It's just a dig though man, if you like controllers, you like controllers.

can't wait for this semester to be over. I can't wait to binge a night of drinking and gaming. I'll have to plan ahead for all the potential updates since it's been a while.
