The better the input and output devices, the better the gamer and/or the game experience right? Maybe video games themselves are sort of an "echo chamber" (especially for single player games ... also consider that books and even this post are echoes of the past). There is a constant input and output feedback loop you engage in whenever you play video games. If you have an excellent PC and accessories you are likely to enjoy a better gaming experience especially in competitive play.

This is perhaps why console gaming is popular because competitors are equalized in gaming hardware besides things like TV size speakers Internet connection and third party controllers. And with the release of next/newer generation consoles, game console buyers submit themselves to a upgrade cycle determined by specific manufacturers and their industry partners.

Anyway getting long winded, I just wanted opinions on the pc keyboards you use. A basic one or specialty one.

Although I haven't really had too many incidents, I'm looking at the "waterproof" and "dustproof" ones.

One thing is funny though, console gamers had to deal with controller changes but keyboard layouts haven't changed a whole lot. People are too used to the convention just like how Sony doesn't really change the dualshock .

A Dungeons and Dragons Online player told me he stuck with his 15-20 year old keyboard because it was so good (even though it had broken keys lol). I forgot the model name though. This $700+ keyboard looks ugly but must be worth the price some people are willing to pay for it? :lol:

In the typical wasd scheme. The ring finger typically controls forward and backward movement (or up and down). The pinky controls movement west or to the left and the middle finger controls movement to the right or east. So why does one finger control two directions while two other fingers control one direction each? Should every finger be assigned it's own direction or should it be further reduced to two fingers controlling four directions? In a joystick setup, one finger or the thumb controls movement in 4, 8, or more directions. Just rambling. I'm sure the video game input researchers have done similar and even more extensive studies.

I thought middle finger controls up/down, and ring finger controls left, index finger controls right.

Here's mine: (The one with round keys)

I actually got a bluetooth dongle for my PC just so I am able to use this keyboard. It was totally worth it, it's the best keyboard I've ever used.

That's how I do it, too.
