find any fps where a xbox 360 controller can be used instead of m/kb, and ill play you. you on controller, me on mouse keyboard. We will see how your 'controller' matches up

you can basically play any game on a controller. and they have 360 controllers with a usb port instead of the regular hook up. and just play each other online

I knew I should not have continued with the whole controller vs keyboard+mouse topic. It's all a matter of opinion. As far as Shadow Run goes, I was told that they applied some measures that ensured the playing field was equal. Either way, I still maintain the fact that I use the highest sensitivity on a controller which when compared to my friend who is a hardcore PC gamer, my sensitivity settings are higher. When I play counterstrike on his PC I always have to up the sensitivity even higher to be close to what I use on a console controller.

Anyways, as far as your arguements go, I did use my 360 controller to play Counter-Strike Source and found that I was constantly in the top 2 to 3 players on whichever server I was in. It all comes down to the skill of the player and the skill they have with their interface. Since I am highly skilled with the controller and use very high sensitivity settings, I was able to outperform most kb+m players of equal skill level.

So, lets end this arguement as it is getting highly off topic by saying that it all comes down to a matter of personal opinion and experience. My experience and opinion is that I will always be able to play better with a controller even against kb+m... others' opinions may be different, but that is the glory of a diverse gaming industry.
