I know that there are some people who need it. But I have actually done that exact thing. When I would host the Speed Lobbies, we'd do TDM with Friendly Fire just so that we could kill each other if we needed to. I honestly didn't see any difference between shooting them, and shooting enemies (Other than the obvious "sticking" that happens). I mean granted, I've played games for 18+ years, but still.
I think its overrated.. and if what you say is true regarding that type of controller you mentioned, then clearly its just a hardware issue, and something console manufacturers should work on, as opposed to making games worse by adding it in.

Then your really good at aiming.
And its not just a matter of some people need it. Its something practically every console gamer needs. I know most console gamers thinks that it hurts them more than helps them, it doesn't. You may be one of the few exceptions.
Normally, I'm all for widening the skill gap, but when it comes to something like Auto Aim, that effects nearly everybody so severely, I don't take my usual stance.
If auto aim were to be removed, it would do more harm than good. Nearly everybody would have an extremely difficult time aiming (Even if you don't). As a result, automatic, large magazine weapons would become the only viable option for many players. Sniper Rifles, semi automatics, and low magazine sized weapons would all be useless for most players. And since nobody can aim effectively, most people would resort to a very defensive play style.
Basically, MW2 without the BS perks and attachments. Accept instead of Assault Rifles being overpowered, LMGs would be overpowered.
Then maybe its just because I play games alot. But I think at the very least, as I said, you should be able to prevent people from utilizing Aim Assist against you by having a Cold Blooded style perk. It should just be built right into the perk, no requiring a "pro" version.
If Im not mistaken aim assist didnt apply to Hardcore before MW2 that is. If Im wrong then Im wrong (never really used aim assist for the most part)
