Gears of War 3: Too Many Modded Controllers?
Have you ever been in a match on Gears of War 3 and had someone shoot you so fast with a hammerburst you thought it might be a regular lancer, or something even quicker? Unfortunately this happens a lot, and though people will rarely admit to using a modded controller, the abundance of people I run into that actually have them is becoming ridiculous!
Of course those who do admit to having modded controllers will tell you that it’s ‘not cheating’. Well, what is it then?! If you’re confident that you don’t NEED cheats to be good at a game, then why not use the weapons as they were made to be used? This is something that irks me every time I play this game. I simply can’t understand spending 60 dollars on a game, then going out and spending anywhere from another 60-200 dollars on a modded controller just to ensure that you’re ‘good’ at said game.
If it were a single player game that you planned on investing a lot of time into, and you felt the need to get a modded controller, then by all means feel free to waste your money. But when you’re in a game with other people who don’t have the same controls as you do, and your controls just so happen to have an advantage then how is this NOT considered cheating? In my opinion it’s no different from cheating to get a higher rank or unlock perks such as on games like Modern Warfare 3 where people were getting an unlimited amount of Prestige Tokens. In fact it’s worse!
At the end of the day, people will continue to buy these controllers, and will also continue to blow playing legit. So, I guess it shouldn’t bother me knowing that someone actually sucks so badly at a game that they have to blow their money (or probably Daddy’s money) on a piece of equipment just to ensure that they score a few kills. I suppose I should feel sorry for them.
But I don’t.
