Gaming pet peeves part 2

Heyyy 💛 back here to complain again 😂

Off Topic: General - Gaming pet peeves part 2 image 2

So this thought has passed me a couple times and I decided to share it to see if anyone could relate. One of my biggest pet peeves as of recently has been precision in games, particularly when using controllers on ps4. I'm not talking about gun precision and aim, no no... I am talking about how you might have to precisely aim at the door handle to open and close in a survival game (makes things very awkward and difficult and annoying on ps4) and in some games this extends to every single little thing. I suppose this may be because a lot of the games that do this are originally made for pc where you can just point and click fairly easily, but it would have been a lot nicer if they could put in the time to make the controls easier for console users. Two of the games that I've had this struggle with the most are Generation Zero and Stranded Deep, but I vaguely remember having similar issues in DayZ? I'm not sure if that has changed now though because I played it when it first came out and it was extremely laggy and buggy and had a lot of issues. What do you think of these issues? Have you ever struggled with controls and functions not entirely console/controller friendly?

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:04 PM

    Maybe we just play different games, or you're on PC?

  • 20_mins LV.6 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:05 PM

    just a lil bit bc I play on ps4

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:06 PM

    Ohh fair enough

  • 20_mins LV.6 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:07 PM

    Sometimes I play using my controller even when I'm on PC because I want to relax and I've gotten frustrated enough a few times to just switch back to kbm because the hassle was really breaking immersion

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 19, 2020, 02:44 AM

    Yeah it saddens me sometimes how much of a hassle it can be :( but especially since some are converted to ps4 which is made for controllers I would have thought that they would make the games more controller friendly

  • Privatebutter65 LV.32 Dub Collector Jun 18, 2020, 08:00 PM

    Only struggled to aim in R6 and overwatch, sad boi hrs

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:01 PM

    Clearly you have not played enough survival games that haven't been made console friendly yet then :^)

  • Privatebutter65 LV.32 Dub Collector Jun 18, 2020, 08:01 PM

    Subnautica is basically the only one

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:03 PM

    You should get The Long Dark!!

  • Privatebutter65 LV.32 Dub Collector Jun 18, 2020, 08:04 PM

    I have a feelings it’ll be dark

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:05 PM

    It's a very nice game and the art style is beautiful and it's very atmospheric and the story is great!

  • Privatebutter65 LV.32 Dub Collector Jun 18, 2020, 08:05 PM

    Elfi  Hmmm how much is it?

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:08 PM

    Privatebutter65  Uhh I think like £15 full price? but it does go on sale

  • Privatebutter65 LV.32 Dub Collector Jun 18, 2020, 08:09 PM

    Elfi  Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I see

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:11 PM

    Privatebutter65  I would never recommend a bad game! Only bad music :^)

  • Privatebutter65 LV.32 Dub Collector Jun 18, 2020, 08:11 PM

    Elfi  You’re not wrong

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 19, 2020, 02:43 AM

    Privatebutter65  😂

    When playing subnautica it's so hard to get fish on controller. And fish is how you get food and water in that game.

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:02 PM

    Yeah I've had this struggle too! I've always wondered if it would be easier on pc because controllers seem to be a lot slower than mice. Grav traps help though if you haven't got one already!

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jun 18, 2020, 08:05 PM

    I have one step up

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:09 PM

    Oh okay!

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jun 18, 2020, 08:09 PM

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:10 PM

    lotsa fishies

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jun 18, 2020, 08:11 PM

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:11 PM

    §vinyl§  Stop with the moving man boobies!!

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jun 18, 2020, 08:12 PM

    Elfi  Why?

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 19, 2020, 02:43 AM

    §vinyl§  Spooky

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jun 19, 2020, 02:46 AM

    Elfi  I'm going to change my name to vinyl but I'm spooky.

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 19, 2020, 02:47 AM

    §vinyl§  Spooky vinyl

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jun 19, 2020, 02:48 AM

    Elfi  Give me a minute

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jun 19, 2020, 02:49 AM

    Elfi  I am now //spooky//vinyl//

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 19, 2020, 02:50 AM

    §vinyl§  I love it!!

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jun 19, 2020, 02:50 AM

    Elfi  Ha

  • War❦ LV.26 Mob Jun 18, 2020, 08:07 PM

    I really do have that issue😂😂 Especially when I play BRs like H1Z1 or Fortnite trying to loot

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:09 PM

    I find it more annoying when it's a simple task like looting as well 😂

  • War❦ LV.26 Mob Jun 18, 2020, 08:14 PM

    Like searching ammo crates in Fortnite is terrible 🤣

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:19 PM

    If you think that's terrible you should try it in Generation Zero

  • War❦ LV.26 Mob Jun 18, 2020, 08:20 PM

    I think I will 🤔

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 19, 2020, 02:43 AM

    Yessss!!!

  • DisrmedDireWolf LV.28 Wolf Jun 18, 2020, 08:09 PM

    One of my biggest pet peeves is when PHARA SPAMS THE FUCKING BOOP VOICE LINE IN OVERWATCH!!

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 18, 2020, 08:10 PM

    Oof somebody does not like Phara 😂

  • DisrmedDireWolf LV.28 Wolf Jun 18, 2020, 08:11 PM

    BOOP?! REALLY? BOOP? HOW ABOUT YOU BOOP THE FUCKING ENEMIES AND HIT YOUR SHOTS YOU DUMB BIT--

    I think games that were designed with the higher level of input precision of a mouse in mind, often don’t translate well to controllers. Also, some Indy game companies might not have to time or resources required to restructure a game’s basic mechanics for a console port. It also may not be feasible to make some types of games comfortable to play on controllers, which is why you see some genres of games that don’t make their way to consoles as often, like MMORPGs, RTS, Arena Shooters, City Builders and Tycoon Games, 4X, MOBA, Rouge-likes, and Tower Defense. Some survival games could fall in there as well as, depending on how they are made, may just function more easily on a mouse and keyboard. Often times companies will need to design some kind of aim assist to lock on to items or hit boxes more easily for non MnK users, why this doesn’t find its way into some games, I’m not sure.

  • boxs LV.20 Wizard Jun 19, 2020, 12:57 AM

    I’ve been playing on controller since I was 7 so I’m pretty used of finding my sensitivity in a game w a controller. So it’s not hard

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 19, 2020, 07:45 AM

    it's not necessarily sensitivity but just ease of controls

    Oh jeez, that's as bad as those kids that blast their music into the mic 😅

    I played a game on randoms with someone like that who not only blasted music but was also playing with their broken controller because they couldn't be bothered to charge their old one and so they struggled to play properly too 😂 some people

  • Elfi LV.31 Rare Candy Jun 19, 2020, 08:27 AM

    gamer844912842  Eh, it was okay, luckily we only did one match

  • Typical Gaymer LV.29 Jumpmaster Jun 19, 2020, 08:57 AM

    I only have that problem when I'm trying to pick up something that's around a lot of other shit in Skyrim and Fallout. other than that, nope
