Generally, the behavior of any switch can be divided into three categories:
- Linear - The keystroke is consistent and smooth.
- Tactile - A bump in the middle of travel, usually around the actuation point.
- Clicky - A bump in the middle of travel is accompanied by a sharp “click” sound.
No matter which type of switch you pick, mechanical keyboards are well-suited for daily working and playing PC games because they offer unmistakable feedback when pressed. That said, part of the fun of mechanical keyboards is getting one that perfectly suits your needs.
