playing Doom on console in controller. something i cant imagine.
this game design to play with KB/M.
well it is better on mouse and keyboard, mostly because of how effortlessly you can switch through weapons, but it plays pretty well on controller.
It could use some more aiming sensitivity options like different sensitivity curves and such but all in all I had no issue playing through it on ultra violence. I think on Nightmare you would see a big advantage using mouse and keyboard tho.
Yeah I noticed that when trying Doom 2, seems really choppy on my big screen, although playing the Switch version of Doom 2 (now that it's patched) doesn't have the same issue.
yes, the recently released ports have been patched to run at 60fps I think.
@b-cell they included Doom 1 and Doom 2 in fact. but they are not the best versions. it seems they tried to run them as close to the original versions as possible. meaning they run at 35FPS, which doesn't look great on a 60hz TV because it was designed for 70hz PC monitors.
so they stutter a bit when played on console.
I imagine on PC this is not an issue
