5 Reasons Why Every Self-Proclaimed Best Pro Gaming Controller Should Make Everyone Feel Better About Competitive Console Gaming

February 2, 2017, marked the day that Blizzard (the people behind award-winning game franchises like Warcraft and Diablo, but you already knew that) brought the proverbial hammer down on the usage of keyboard and mouse peripherals and input converters on console versions of its 2016 Game of The Year Winner, Overwatch. Citing the unfair advantage players can receive from this type of input by virtue of being more precise for movement and especially aiming, the folks behind the game have actively reached out...
