So, this is an issue I have had for a very long time and I feel as if I am missing out on a lot of cool games out there. I have played FPS on the PC for years now and converting to console is almost impossible because I suffer from right thumb retardation. Trying to aim with my right thumb is at times impossible and I am sure I am not the only person who has suffered from this.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to get better? maybe there is a game out there that will help train my thumb? It sure as heck isnt modern warfare 2 online… :(
It’s not your thumb that is retarded, it is just feeling the effects of general console game retardation. Your thumb can try to accomodate this level of retardation but sadly nothing will ever make it go away.
Ps3 support mouse and 360 also have mouse support, it’s really up the dev if they want to support them in their games.
Generally we don’t support them because most of the console gamers want a console experience, IE, couch + controller. Also putting mouse support in a FPS basically forces every gamer to go mouse to be on the even playfield.
This is key. Aim on a console is basically the two thumbs compestating for each other to stay on target. I suggest playing through some single player stuff to get used to it a bit. Just dial the difficulty down and run around shooting everthing while you get used the sticks.
