Consoles are a pathetic excuse for a gaming platform and controllers are the worst input devices in recorded history.
addendum: all AAA games suck
Yeah pretty much, I largely play either oldies or indie games nowadays xD .

Even stronger argument in favor of keyboards now with advent of analog gaming keyboards. Wand-style motion controllers are good for VR, gaming wheels for driving, and joysticks for flight sims, but other than that (and maybe a few other niches) keyboards are supreme.

LOL!!!! What we've seen of analog gaming keyboards so far isn't more than a useless proof-of-concept

The technology is so bad and flawed, I can't understand how it's being marketed at all. The only thing more pathetic than the people actually promoting and selling this garbage are those people in Youtube videos trying to construct situations where there's actually an application for these keyboards.

There was a pretty interesting video by a CS GO youtuber who made in debth comparisons of a lot of games. In there end there was not a single game left where you have an actual advantage (unless you are so broke after buying the keyboard so that you can't afford a superior controller anymore for racing games).

John Wick is a boring franchise, the first movie was "good" only because the expectations were incredibly low.

Keyboard reviews are pointless and redundant; there is no objective way to claim any one keyboard superior. Subjectivity rules.

The M in Model M stands for Meh.

Keycaps with sublegends on the alphas are inferior to their cleaner brethren. Particularly if said sublegends are done in a contrasting colour.

Cherry-profile keycaps should always only have Cherry-style icon mods. Notably with the down arrow for Caps Lock as used on HAD. Icon-and-text mods, as used on their ANSI-sets, look terrible in comparison. To say nothing about the abomination that is text-only mods that has made an appearance at GMK. Yuck.

Speaking of Cherry-profile; scoops4lyfe.

After reading through the comments in this topic I suddenly get the feeling that we should go to DEFCON 2, or atleast DEFCON 3, just in case... :mrgreen: Does DT have such a thing?

Digital joystick > D-pad and keyboard.

Up for jump is better. Especially if you have only one digit for pressing buttons with.

Everything with fewer than about 250,000 inhabitants is not a city. Everything under 100k is practically a farm.
You're right. What we definitely need right now is MORE NEIGHBOURS. As if you don't step onto enough people's sick on your way to your city work in the morning, while inhaling toxic smog. And when you get back in your 2 square foot apartment you're paying €2k a month for in the afternoon, you go through adventures that should be in some form of adventure book of the early 20th century. But at least the food is vibrant and we can go the barcade, right?

And here's another one:
All of these newer ultra lightweight (<80g) gaming mice with honeycomb design look tacky as hell and are probably cheaply made too.
This. And pretty much every company switching from Japanese to Chinese omrons and now we see so many expensive mice have early double click issues due to the contacts being lower quality.

Also social media was a mistake and should be purged

It's funny because I don't mind milk and specially like some honey on pancakes or a on waffle.
But I completely hate (and I mean it) honey on milk.

Yes, some people drink that. Older people even say that it's good to help curing a fever...

Football is crap. Rugby may be fun to play, but ain't fun to watch.

Handegg (a.k.a. "American football") isn't a sport. Although it did start as one (a variation of rubgy), it's become so warped and corrupted that hasn't qualified as a sport anymore for decades.

On the other hand, as good and timeless chess is, it's not a sport and has never been so; whoever first posited such a laughable idea deserves a special place in hell, forced to play Monopoly® for all eternity. Heck, Go enthusiasts won't say their game is a "sport" (and the snobbiest ones talk about specifically about "mind sports", not sports per se).

The origin for why competitive video gaming is called "e-sport" is from when gamers who entered the US for a tournament had to declare their reason for entry ... They chose the same category has chess players: which was "sport", and then got an idea from there.
Opinion:That does not make competitive video gaming into a sport, regardless of how high your pulse or adrenaline is. A sport is an athletic activity. (Said by a couch potato ...)

Sport also requires that you act "sportily", and show "sportsmanship".
This means that you don't shout obscenities at your opponents, team-members or anyone else. And you don't commit violence upon your opponent. Only a complete a-hole would punch or choke someone who is lying down — which is as far away from sport as you could get.

While we're at that, sportmanship also involves playing by the rules AND not laughing at the opponent when one has played dirty and gotten away with it (see Maracoca's "hand of God" for the canonical example).

If ground mustard seeds are used mostly as a thickener for vinegar, then that paste does not deserve to be called "mustard".
