Re: The reason Microsoft decided not to allow PC gamers to take on Xbox gamers?
There are very few exceptions to this.
I have a friend who is a dyed-in-the-wool Halo fan. He has come over many times to play Halo 2 on my PC, on some servers that I found to be too difficult for me with either the controller OR kb/m. He picked the controller up every time and proceeded to be near or at the top of the leaderboard in every round.
There aren't many who can do this, but they're out there.
I still enjoy the 360 controller for GoW, Lost Planet, Halo 2, Bioshock and even Far Cry 2. It's pretty fun in Metro 2033 as well.
It's definitely no good for the twitchy games though (Bad Company 2 etc.).
