    Scurvy: Controller is not good choice for me. I am playing keyboard + mouse only since early 90s. I think i can be faster with it, but everybody has their own preferences.

    Keyboard and mouse is best for FPS games. I can't understand how console gamers play shooters.

    dcristo: I agree with ya. Even RTS must be unplayable on consoles in my opinion.

    Absolutely I only play strategy games on PC.

    Carmageddon is one of my all-time favourite games. I have Carmageddon Max Pack and Carmageddon Max Damage on Steam. The original Carmageddon with the High Definition Mod still holds up till this day the game play is awesome.

    I know little about this because my idea of gaming is solitaire or the occasional pinball arcade game, but my 18-year-old son exclusively plays shooter games on his Xbox console/controller. In addition to modern military type shooter games, he also plays medieval military "shooter" games (swords, instead of guns) with the Xbox controller. He has been using consoles/controllers since he was 4 or 5 and has not ever really used a PC for gaming. Like anything else, what you are used to probably works best for you.

    yy, you are right, its all about usage. But I think it's better to get used to the keyboard & mouse. If i realize, that you can use just one finger for free look on gamepad, it seems very restrictive in my opinion. With mouse, you use whole hand for free look, which is much more precisely. On the other side, you have 5 fingers to control on left hand, what is more operable, than on gamepad.

    2nd Carmageddon race today:
