So I got a joystick to help me out with my terrible flying in Battlefield 3. It was a bit of a pain to set up properly (tons of buttons to map), but once I did I was glad I got a joystick. I wouldn’t say it gives me any sort of advantage, but controlling jets and helicopters with a joystick is a lot more intuitive then using a mouse and keyboard. Now I just need to practice a lot, which is easier said then done since the only way to practice is to go online and try. So I will see you all on the battlefield. I will be the one getting blown out of the sky repeatedly.
