Keyboard or Controller: Which Is Better for No Rest for the Wicked?

PC gamers are offered an alternative to the usual Keyboard and Mouse combo: They can play with a PlayStation or Xbox controller (or any other third-party controller) connected to their PC. I’ve tried both, and I have mixed feelings about each input option. Mouse and Keyboard is more precise and faster for me. On the other hand, the Controller employs more of your fingers at the same time, allowing for better reaction time in some situations. For example, I had a tough time parrying with my mouse, so I dodge-rolled or blocked to defend myself.

In that regard, what you select really comes down to personal preference, although Controller might give you an advantage when parrying.
