EasySMX ESM-9013 Review

Personally, I have always had a weird feeling about deciding between console and PC gaming. This is one competition that has gone back for many years. Personally, I think there are pros and cons to both sides. On the console side, it provides a no-nonsense environment to play games. You will see exclusives that are for the systems, especially with Nintendo. Furthermore, upgrading within generations of consoles is not necessary, as the hardware to play these games stay consistent during its existence. Even if you do see minor upgrades, they generally do not inhibit you from playing the game altogether. As for PC gaming, while the initial cost for gaming is definitely higher, computers provide more function than just gaming. As well, you can see a much greater variety of games and a larger library overall. Not only are all the old games available to newer gamers, but some genres of games play only well on computers. This stems from the fact these two types of systems provide different types of inputs. Computer gaming is done mostly using a keyboard and mouse, while consoles use controllers. However, today we have something crossing the line, as we have a game controller on the PC side. While this is nothing new, this is from a lesser known brand in the name of EasySMX. Is this controller any good or should I just stick to gaming with a keyboard and mouse? Read on to find out!
