"A great degree of certainty"? Hmmm - how to counter such a compelling argument...? I know... how about... I, too, have played a number of FPSs on console and PC, and I stick by my opinion that the console controllers are 'awful' in comparison to the far more intuitive keyboard and mouse. Oh look - we're down to personal opinion. So if you want to start spouting "great degree of certainty" - I do hope you can support it with facts?? I'm sure if the thread topic was about Halo 2 or 3 you'd have a point. But Halo is relatively DULL in these areas. You'd have hoped by 2, and especially 3, that they'd have cottoned on to that fact - and they did. You mean other than better graphics, far more open gameplay and better range of environments? Logically flawed argument, I'm afraid. There are more console players in the market because they are aimed specifically at the gamers market. The more consoles are in the market, the more a particular type of game will sell. Therefore using quantity as an indication of quality in this example is logically flawed and moot. I do hope you can appreciate that? If the Console manufacturers brought out a mouse and keyboard style controller (they've bought out steering wheels for racing games, so why not) then they would get far more converts from PC to consoles. As it is there are plenty of gamers who stick to PCs for FPS due to the controller. For games such as sports (football etc), or even racing games, the controller is far better suited than the keyboard and mouse option. But in my opinion, not for FPS, where I find the controller awful.
