I use my middle finger on the right trigger while playing racing games...like PGR and Rallisport. With Halo, for example, I use my index fingers :)

It depends on the type of game im playing.
If it a RPG, sports or something of that nature im normally index.
But if it's something I gotta mash like getting my dumb ass wrestler up from off the mat in RAW then im pulling out all 5 fingers!:D
Also in fighting games some times you need both index & middle to do throw moves,... which btw I dont need since Ninja is all skillz no thrillz!:D

phhhhttttttt:mad: i was going to edit the poll but only mods can do that?
didnt know anyone would be using both
Ive developed a nice flat spot on my index finger after 3 non stop days of Rallisport. That game is simply awesome. !!

Just like Piccolo_DBz said I am all index finger here. I didn't know that you can use your middle finger it must feel different from your index.:)

Just like Max, when I play RSC or PGR I use my middle fingers. For most other games, I use my index fingers.

I think it's because racing games require the constant pressure on the triggers, and my middle fingers can handle it better.

Yeah, I hear ya...For some reason my middle finger is the strongest and is needed for that constant effort. It's probably the strongest since I use my middle finger the most in every day life :D hehe...like driving and someone cutting me off!!! :mad:

I use my index...I tried using my middle but...it just did not work for me.

Yo max! When I first read you'r reply I thought you said you use you'r middle finger for Halo and I though I figured out why you suck...but after I read it again I found out you use your index finger....so now im stuck! Trying to figure out the mystery.....j/k.....j/k just trying to motivate you to get on xboxconnector where we can play...and I can, most likely, get my @ss kicked by you!:)

I usually use my index finger... my middle finger is reserved for when the game is ripping me off!

I use my index fingers. M$ should have put the black $ white buttons above the triggers so you could pull off more button combos.

You guys are crazy. I think it's terrible having to use the triggers in racing games. I like to accelerate and brake with the right analog. I'd like my right trigger to be my emergency brake like on midnight club, but no luck on any or the games yet...

BTW i only use my middle finger when I am going semi-auto on someone!:D

Thats a great idea. I really hate the location of the Black & White buttons. But im used to it now, But having a L2 and R2 would have been nice instead of B&W

as stated b4 it depends on the games. I used my middle finger for Wreckless and sometimes PGR. It all depends

Index fingers on the triggers? Hmmm. I'll hafta try that.

I've been using my pinky fingers for trigger action, ring fingers for the thumbsticks, thumbs for black & white buttons, and the big toe of my left foot for the jelly beans.

Maybe if I try your method these pesky cramps will go away.

Index fingers are so much easier..in my opinion
