Respawn: Titanfall PC Will Have Aim Assist For The Controller Crowd
I have a love-hate relationship with Aim Assist in videogames. On one hand, I think it’s a necessary tool for controller-only games on console, since precision aiming with a joystick is akin to filing taxes while having your teeth drilled out. On the other hand, it has no place on the PC, where precision aiming with a mouse is considerably easier to manage.
@Fengato yes, there is some controller aim assist for PC.

Frowny face is at MAXIMUM, Captain.
There’s a time and a place for controller Aim Assist — namely when a controller is the only input option — and Titanfall on PC doesn’t qualify. This could end up being a distinct advantage for controller players, instead of some sort of equalizer, which is what the team at Respawn probably thinks. Worse yet, it could lead to some pretty nasty, aimbot-style exploits, but that bit is pure conjecture.
What say you? Any interest in controller Aim Assist in PC games? Or should controller jockeys have to hone their skills without a boost? Flame away in the comments!
