"Using a mouse and a keyboard is typically popular all over the world, but with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, we're aiming to be the standard for MMORPGs played with controllers."
Dear god no.. nOOOOOOOOOOOoOOoOooOOoOoOoOOOOOOooooooo
Frankly it makes me happy. As someone who works at a computer all day, my hands get really sore if I go home and play with mouse and keyboard. It's a dealbreaker for me. I really enjoyed EQ2 but not enough to be in pain while playing it.
I don't understand why people are so attached to mouse and keyboard - it's awkward, uncomfortable, and if you spend any time on a computer not gaming, a good way to get repetitive stress injuries. I mean yeah you can spin around in circles easier I guess, but I always found it yucky. Give me a controller any day.
