Where in all of God's green Earth does joysticks fall into this discussion?
Perhaps, though, if you weren't critisizing others' use of the keyboard calling most a newbie by heart, maybe I wouldn't bad mouth you and tell you to get lost (got to keep it somewhat appropriate). I grew up on consoles too, kid. Don't lecture me about how joysticks are for real gamers.
Tell me how you intend to strafe quickly by moving your whole other hand? I would rather use my two fingers, instead of moving the whole joystick side to side or maybe fuckin' holding a button which takes up another key or button on your bulky controller. I do not intend to make it a challenge to try and press the right buttons in the heat of battle. I do intend, however, to use my skills to the fullest extent whenever needed.
