It could be argued that low profile scissor switches are actually better for gaming than a mechanical keyboard.
With both the scissor switches, and mechanical switches, travel to actuation is about 2mm, but with the mechanical keyboard, you have a further 2mm of travel to bottom out the keys. (and you do bottom out when gaming)
When you release the keys, there is effectively no travel on the scissor keyboard before the switch is reset, but with the mechanical keyboard there is 2mm of travel upwards before the switch is reset. And if you are using a light switch, or MX Blues, it's possible to lift your fingers, but not enough so that you are still pressing that key, even though you are not bottoming out. I found this to be especially problematic with the MX Blues, because their reset point is separate from their activation point:
Maybe you do, but I don't bottom out much when gaming. I prefer mech switches because I know exactly when the key is pressed and released, as opposed to being able to feel the bump in the key but still not press hard enough for it to register like on membrane/scissor switches that only activate when the key is pressed down all the way.
I guess if you use a lot of force normally, a capacitive based keyboard might be better for you, but I generally type pretty light and quick, so my MX blue keyboard works great for gaming.
