There’s so much for me to say about gaming mice and keyboards…. that I don’t even know where to begin, and it’s mainly because of 2 games I play at least 1 hour a day each and they combine these 2 peripherals in a completely different way.
The games are typeracer and Osu, the first one I think it describes itself, race while typing and thus keyboards are the key instrument for me to play properly, therefore mechanical gaming keyboards are definitely something special to me.
Given that I type a lot and also do it in a gaming way, I think I have some authority to talk about keyboards and their importance. You see, while typing short sentences in a chat there is not much required from a keyboard but when gaming there’s a whole new world to talk about, and the reason is very simple, it’s called feedback.
If you could somehow determine when the clicks and presses actuate down to the milisecond you could accurately press the buttons to a degree that you wouldn’t even think your body can do. The reason why this is very important is because most games require fast reaction times and thus doing everything in your power to reduce that reaction time is very important.
The second reason why gaming keyboards have a special science while playing games is because you need comfort while pressing the keys given that you will be pressing them a lot, no matter what game it is. As such there is nothing more frustrating that pressing clunky keys all day knowing that there’s an entire different world that is at the tip of your fingers waiting for you to get there (no pun intended… ok maybe yes).
We truly recommend you to try a proper keyboard made specifically for gaming and you will feel the difference right away.
