Hi guys which is your opinion? KBM or controller? I mean Ps4 consoles or PC, which one offer more excitement?

Note following abbreviation had been used KBM = Keyboard and mouse

As in, we which type of enjoyment play you like, that makes your body comfortable? Kbm or console controller? You use kbm more straining than controller or vice versa?

If the game is made with a controller in mind (dark souls, platformer), i'll use controller.

If its made for keyboard/mouse like fps or strategy, i'll just use kbm.

If the game is well designed for both inputs, i'll lean towards whichever gives me advantage.

for PC games, esp FPS, KBM for me because of precision/minute movement control and as well as it allows for more control keys/customisation, unless the game only allows gamepads. for analog stuff, gamepad of course.

If the game doesn't require too many keys, you can try a Playstation Move navigation controller (to replace WASD for easier movement) + mouse (for precision shooting) set up.

I play on pc with a xbone controller. Most games on pc support both anyway so it's all personal preference.

Can meh? For doom 4,bf1 and infinite warfare? Without aim assist not like ps4 and xb1? Is aim assist important?

Like most have said, it all depends on what games your playing.

For me if I'm gonna be playing FPS games like Overwatch and CS, I choose KBM as aiming is so much easier using a mouse. Also Mass Effect (able to map 6 abilities to hotkeys as an Adept) Plus, there is no aim assist when using a controller on PC (i think).

As for games like GTA, Dark Souls, I very much prefer to use a controller
