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.).
That's halo, though. A game designed for consoles. Even the PC version is console-ish. Similarly, so is Gears of War on PC. I beat up on some PC players using a controller in that game. But that's mostly because you don't really need to aim the shotgun, and it's much easier to move in and out of cover with a controller.

I watched a live stream of console players at a LAN playing CoD4 on X360...i had to turn it off after 3 rounds i have never been as bored in my life, was like watching grass grow.

Consoles + FPS games = epic fail

imo of course.

I remember hearing about people using controller with shotgun as it snaps to the target and you hit the full blast per automatic, and there was some complaints or somesuch.
Correct. There are some youtube videos of disgruntled people demonstrating how lame the auto aim is for Halo 2.

nope, other than the small handful of players who are the best in the world there is no real middle ground in multiplayer pc games. everyone is just ridiculously useless. what pc games do you play online?

LOL u are funneh

Ok now that I've finished laughing I can respond.

Most recent online shooter I play is Battlefield Bad Company 2 and I have been playing PC FPS games online since around the Rainbow Six/Delta Force era.

I'm not a "best player in the world" or even in any clan but I like to think I'm pretty decent player and more coordinated than the average console player.

You'd like to think that, and you are free to do so. The reality may surprise you.

Heh like when I go play games with my console friends and end up owning them even though I'm terrible with a controller? Seriously m3dude you are full of sh!t.

I actually don't necessarily agree with this thread. I think some players are very good with controllers and are better than the average PC player. But I do believe the average PC player is more skilled than the average console player for a variety of reasons.

Anyway I should stop feeding the troll. m3dude always comes on here to spew his console tendancies.

Here's the kind of behavior you can find from the superiorly skilled console players http://i29.tinypic.com/2ir6o41.jpg
