Player Controls in Game Programming

Player Controls in a computer game are the ways the users, or players, can interact with a game and change its behavior. A player using a laptop or desktop is most likely to use a keyboard, mouse, trackpad, or a combination of the three. A handheld or non-portable console user is most likely using a gamepad, joystick, or touch screen to interact with games; some computer games also give the user the choice to use them in gameplay. More sophisticated games may employ the use of cameras to capture player input for motion controls, and they may utilize microphones to pick up a player's voice for speech recognition.
