Controllers are inferior. They are great for driving games, but everything else that requires any measure of control -- like an FPS -- mouse/keyboard just wins hands down.

I hope they make GoW multi-platform, so I can own myself some consolers.

Controllers are good for console games (the ones that were originally developed for consoles) any FPS is better played with KB&M, but the likes of Tekken & FF are just ment to be played with a controller - KB is too awkward in those games...

More like -20... There is no way an experienced quaker would play an FPS on a CONSOLE!!! There's just not enough flexibility in a controller... you can only turn & aim at 2 speeds: Slow & Mega-slow...

I tried playing shooters with a gamepad, but it doesn't work for me.

There's even a contest? Naaah. Consider...

* Auto aim makes gamepad play tolerable.
* Auto aim makes mouselook aiming worse.

Gamepad < gamepad + autoaim < mouselook + autoaim < mouselook

But... gamepads allow us to kick back on the couch. That's worth a lot.
