Gears with a controller... is Agonising

I recently bought GoW 4 because I missed out on it and I wanted to get one year of online play before it’s a desolate wasteland

I find games relatively quickly but more so 3v3 TDM/Koth in the first half of the week and full games on the later half

I can’t play gears 4 comfortably because I’ve gotten so used to K/BM (that plus the camera shake & fov)

I’ve been trying to play it with the controller and it hurts, it physically hurts my hands. It doesn’t feel right in my hands anymore.

I’ve played PC and Xbox multiple times on default settings (Always), it shouldn’t be that big unless you really have a crazy fov you’re used to…

have you tried to change your hands?



@AirLoxz then you should be happy, for me my skill is lost when I pick up a controller

if GOW 3 still is alive and well at online horde matches… I don’t see any time near this would happen .

well that happens because GOW 4 still it’s a man’s game … you’re supposed to have rough hands to play while at it… in spite of Gears 5 that is something out of Sesame Street to be honest.

It’s a beautiful game… I think the problem its on your hand this time my friend. Perhaps you should stick in Gears 5 .


Perhaps they uses a sega megadrive controller??

that controller has been labeled before as the worst one yet haahhahaha or one of the worst .

in my opinion the most comfortable controller has been then xbox one controller and in second place the SNES Controller…

I don’t know why people nowadays have their hands tired because of the xbox one controller, it works fantastically for almost the rest of the world .

Maybe you need The Duke.

I really don’t understand this complaint.

Irrelevant to the point of your post but anyone remember the N64 controller? Have you tried to hold it recently? It’s a wonder how we did it :joy:

Anyway, on topic. Personally I couldn’t play any other way, I use the controller on default and play with claw.


I remember that, 1st time i picked it up im like “ok wtf are these buttons for”

I play default and claw as well, I have played this way for so long now that it just feels like a normal way to hold the controller,

OP have you tried playing in claw?

I’ve tried playing claw but I can’t get used to it. I’ll stick to it for a week but I’ve held my controller the same way for every gears game

@mrflankys707 It’s not so much a complaint rather than just me writing my thoughts out

@GB6_Kazuya The N64 controller was my first console and the one I had as a young kid, I don’t really have a problem with it but I see where some people stand

@D_A_N_III_3_L don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed every gears 4 match even when I lost. I have played G5 for 362 hours with a mouse and keyboard and I’m not adjusting fast enough
Genuinely I think I’m gonna do whatever g5 event comes out and finish the operations and then just go on koth gow4 because I enjoy it way more even though I semi suck


Haha no problem here either, Ocarina of Time still stands as one of the best games of all time! Put in a hell of a lot of hours into that console,


Maybe try messing with sensitivities until it feels better other than that just keep playing. U will get back to comfort with it with time.

Yes nintendo needs to remake that

100%, a genuine remake with decent graphics. Not cell shading like Wind Waker or Breath of the Wild, but just a normal HD remaster.

I’d buy the Switch just for that.

I would buy a switch if Nintendo put a game pass service that allows me to play all mario brons ever existed… if they do that I would be inclined to buy a intendo console.

That’ll never happen because Nintendo’s IPs hold their value while Microsoft’s are Car, Halo Man, and big man with chainsaw gun

Hi @RadishBeet how are you man ?

Nintendo could keep their IPs, it just that it would be nice to have a " game pass " service where you could pay nintendo lets say 10 dollars a month and you could play every mario brons game on their catalog , that would surely make the switch a instant hit on sales .

just my two cents about it haahahhaa
