Since the dawn of time, philosophers have argued about whether a keyboard and mouse is better than a standard controller for playing games. But as is usually the case with made up things that didn’t happen, they were asking the wrong questions. What they should’ve been asking themselves is Can You Beat Fallout New Vegas With A Guitar Hero Controller?

Can You Beat Fallout New Vegas With A Guitar Hero Controller? (in text form)
After getting up from Doc Mitchell’s bed, my first task was to use the Vigor tester. Getting to it was easy, activating it was a different beast altogether, because everything is a mess. The game says Left Trigger, but the Left Trigger doesn’t exist, and it should be the A button to begin with. I reconfigured it in the game’s controller settings to make it work, and almost started assigning SPECIAL points. You use the Right Trigger to move through the attributes. So I quit the game, momentarily remapped another button, and could finally start assigning points. My only objective is to beat the game. I put 10 points into Luck to boost all skills, 10 in Intelligence to get more Skill Points when leveling up, 7 in Endurance to take some damage, and left the rest at 4.
I then went over to the couch to try and sit down. I tried. But there was another problem: I can’t actually look down or crouch. I spent a little while walking around the couch to see if there was any way to reach it. There wasn’t, and it dawned on me that this was a horrible idea. For the 2nd time in 10 minutes, I quit the game and remapped some buttons. Because reloading wasn’t something I was at all concerned about, I went ahead and made the orange button work overtime without any extra pay by making it click in the left stick and press X.
I may or may not have had to look up the controls because I’m quite dim. It worked like a charm and was a waste of time, because I found a spot where I could sit on the couch without crouching. We’re off to a phenomenal start. The skills I chose were Speech, for obvious reasons, Medicine so that Stimpaks will be as effective as possible, and Melee Weapons because I had a feeling that trying to aim a gun with a Guitar Hero controller would be a worthless endeavor. The traits I chose were Skilled to boost all skills and Good Natured to provide yet another boost to Speech and other non-violent skills.
After 25 minutes, I was finally ready to leave Doc Mitchell’s house. I took a few things from his house, the things I could look at, like Stimpaks from his dead wife’s chemistry set and a hat. Then I accidentally enabled Hardcore mode because of course I did. Once I’d made sure I didn’t just have a heart attack, I disabled Hardcore Mode, and went out in the the Wasteland for the first time.
My first stop was Chet’s store to sell some things and buy some stuff. Here I found yet another fun little side effect of using the Guitar Hero controller, the Left Trigger moves to your own inventory, but I still don’t have a Left Trigger, nor do I have it mapped to any button on the guitar, so I can’t sell anything. For the time being, I’m stuck with what I start the game with.
While I do a few things around Goodsprings, let me explain something about the Guitar Hero controller: it sucks. There are a lot of things I can’t do. I can’t jump, I can’t go into 3rd person, I can’t strafe left or right, I can’t look up or down, I can’t aim down the sights of a gun, I can’t block attacks, I can’t wait in a location, I can’t pick up items, like, when you fling them all over the place, I can’t quick-save or quick-load, I can’t use VATS.
