Under duress, I bought a PS4 pro last week and I have to say the graphics on it are quite splendid, but I'm struggling with the controls. The last time I devoted a significant lump of my life to online gaming was when the original Call Of Duty (on PC) came out about 2003ish I think. I got quite good at it.
My current thinking is that the PS4 controller is a blunt tool for running around shooting at stuff - I miss the precise control of the mouse.
Any advice? Am I right in thinking the mouse is king here?
Basically yeah. That is how pretty much all games work. You get aim assistance while using a joystick or gamepad, and I think that might be the reason that games don't let PC players and console players play each other online.
It depends on the game and usually online it is banned / disabled automatically. Halo 3 (or 4? can't remember) had a terrible joystick control that was nearly not progressive at all and caused me and my family nausea - one of the few games that ever did that to me. It hadn't aim assist and for me it was unplayable.
