just because you are not any good with a controller on a FPS, doesn't mean its not possible, and that they do not exist.

i never said i'm not good, by console standard i'm good, but if you are used to the insane accuracy that you been playing on PC, then there is no comparison.

I have seen people with insane accuracy on a controller, and its just frightening.

Yeah, if you bought the 360 just for PGR3, that was a bad mistake. I'm also hearing nothing but preferences for a PC so just stick with that. Take that $400 you spent on the 360 and upgrade for Vista or something lol.

Nekrosoft13,

I'm sorry to hear that you aren't enjoying your recent purchase of your console. I don't have an answer for you, and maybe you should just return the console for your money back, but I really feel that if you just give it a chance and let it grow on you.

Go out and rent a decent console FPS (hell, even try GoW even though you don't like it at this point). It'll take some time to get used to (a week or more), and it'll probably never be the same as a mouse/keyboard. But, I ask you this: if you are having a good time, and everybody else who's playing with/against you are on the same boat, does it really matter if you are "as good" as on the computer? I mean games are all about fun, right? I think it's healthy to engage in unknown territory for many things in life, game genres and platforms included. Bravo to you for trying it out as far as you have!

This also may be a good time to branch out onto other genres that are more prevelant on consoles than PCs...

Good luck!

I can see where you are coming from nekrosoft13. My true love is for PC gaming. Although I must say GRAW (for the 360), Burnout, and GoW are just too fantastic IMO to pass up. I am very glad for the console experience I have been having as of late. But I will never forget PC gaming.

I used to be a hardcore pc gamer, but now with the 360, I have almost given up pc gaming. I love the comfort of lying on the couch and playing on the big screen as opposed to sitting rigid and almost up close to the monitor and playing on the pc. Also the fact that you have to keep spending money constantly to keep playing pc games at the best settings.

If you want to know how much I am enjoying console gaming on the 360, look at my signature. I just downgraded from a 8800 gts because I see no value in it!!!!

I'm someone who will ALWAYS choose PC gaming over consoles, but right now, I feel 360 has a lot more to offer as far as new titles are concerned, RS: Vegas, Gears of War, Madden 2007, Knockout Kings 3....it's ashame your judging the system on one half-assed racing game.

Try a few more titles before you send it back. I mean, you paid $600 for that 8800 GTX and there hasn't been much to come out since that gpu's release, yet you kept the card. If your gonna have such a strong bias, don't bother with a console.

It could be worse, you could have bought a ps3.

its sad that the "best" console and still has pretty much no "good exclusive" titles to play.

and before any one says GoW, thats not my type of game, i preffer FPS
Just curious, does a game have to be exclusive to be good?

I never understood that line of thinking....

As far as racing and RPGs go, PS3 will have the FF series as well as my favorite racing series, Gran Turismo.
Unfortunately, the word is "will" and not "has".

I can understand you Nekro! I rarely ever use the 360 and the only reason why Im keeping it is because Im waiting for Forza 2. Im also considering the HD-DVD drive since its cheap and works on the PC as well, but thats about it. I prefer PC gaming hands down, it has all games I like to play and at least Im using it more than 3h every two weeks.
