I like brown myself but each to there own. I would buy or go to a computer store that has tester for mx switches something like this https://www.amazon.com/Cherry-Switch-Tester-keyboard-Sampler/dp/B01GZHU1EG/

Nothing worse than buying a keyboard and not liking the noise or lack of noise or feeling of the keys under your fingers.

Hope you find this of help 😉

What does a tactile bump feel like? My current keyboard is a Cherry MX red so I do not know what a tactile bump is like but, I read that it makes typing easier is that right? If you have experience with Cherry MX red can you share the difference between bump and no bump? Thanks! 

I like the noise, to be honest they remind me of typewriter (electric one I had as kid not manual ones) when I was much younger (the one I had, had an lcd screen, daisy wheel and only typed the line once you finished a couple lines of text), you know you have contacted they key and helps your finger move towards the next key, aware the last was contacted through hearing it and feeling it. I hope that makes sense.

Also try youtube as well I remember videos of people typing on the popular variants as well.

Here is couple I liked,

and the other (because we can only link one video in a post, really ??????)

Cherry Blue are not good for gaming

Brown, Black or even Red's are better

Blue is targeted for typing

Check out the others users post about what MX switch to pick, it makes quite a difference in gaming, especially over long periods of time at the keyboard
