To be honest, I've preferred the ergonomics of Sony's controllers ever since the PS2.  But I used to have a 360 so I'm used to the control scheme and it's just nice to be playing something like Saints Row 2 with a proper controller instead of the keyboard.

Interesting. I found that the PS4 controller was the first I could hold without cramping, probably because it's a wider grip. I actually switched from the 360 controllers to the XB1 controllers last year. They're both Xinput on Windows, but I discovered that I prefer the lighter control resistance of the XB1 as well as a proper D-pad (I think the 360 controller was designed before Nintendo's patent expired).

Stuck inside on a cold, rainy(flooded) day. The Wife has been watching Hallmark movies and I've been left with cold beer and Ripping N' Tearing through Doom(2016) on PC today :D ...Since I remembered that I can actually run it now after replacing my old GTX 780 with a 1070.  :-[

Hey, whatever works for you. I suggested the 360 controller because, well, it's what I like, but everyone's hands are different.

Yeah, whatever works. The third handle was still odd though.

I was playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on my Nintendo Switch (yes I do love the Switch), and yesterday I was playing Shovel Knight on the same system and I totally dig Shovel Knight  :))

Portable or plugged in? I've found to my surprise I've been using it more as a portable machine even though the TV mode works very well.

I'm back to Binding of Isaac, mostly the excellent fan mod "Antibirth." While it certainly has its issues - especially in the disappointing Afterbirth+ DLC - it's still my favorite game, and I'm looking forward to another thousand hours in it.

Been playing through "The Surge" at the moment. Pretty fun game, I must say.

Portable.

Wait till you try it multiplayer. Although the shoulder buttons on the joycons are really loose, the experience isn't bad in a party atmosphere. That commercial was actually true believe it or not. I'd like to try with another owner on local net sometime.

There's a Shout that allows you to command a dragon to let you ride, but it's honestly on the lame side since you can't actually control the dragon, you just circle around the area for a while.
