In my opinion, nothing beats the keyboard as a controller. You can set whatever action you want to any key. You can make up your own control scheme. It's easier to press W and go forward than to hold an analog stick forward, and wear out the stick.

There are only two kinds of games keyboards don't cut it; Racing games and flightsims.

And you can't type with a controller.

Bah, I can't do that. I have to be able to wrap my hands around the controller, and just use my thumbs. besides, with the simple controller, the buttons are easier to memorize. For me at least.

In my opinion, the computer gaming world has looked down on consoles. many get consoles because we cant afford Hi tech pc's

a pc that can run unreal 2 is so expensive(i need to get a nato cast off)

a console is just simpler, cheaper, and when its time to upgrade, you just pick it up, dump it in the trash, and g2 the store for a new 1(just like macs).

plus, he keyboard seems so alien to me, i especially dislike games like everquest that take an entire alphabet, number key, and f1-12 to cast spells and work effectively.

i only play shooters(i only have to really use the number keys, the scroll wheel, and w,a,s,d.) and strategy games.

although youll probably never have the exact accuracy of a mouse over a joystick when it comes to sniping in a shooter, or in other things that the precise mouse brings, its easier to pull off complex moves, faster, and effectively, without as much needed time as memoerizing the keyboard. simply the console is the cheaper and easier to use choice.

Absolutely the convenience factor of a console counts hugely in its favour. I am a PC guy myself- the games I like are far more likely to be found there and I like the PC for other uses anyway- but you can hardly deny that PCs are hideously expensive and inconvenient gaming platforms compared to consoles. That's hardly a surpirse- PCs are multi-purpose. Consoles ONLY have gaming as a purpose, so if they were not basically better at the convenience factor than PCs they would not be doing well.

But it is absolutely true that nothing is more precise than mouse/keyboard. No console controller (other than... well.. a console mouse/keyboard) comes close.

PC- More time, MORE MONEY,you have to constantly worry about updating or having the right requirements.

Console, simple to install, buy a game you know its gonna work perfectly to its max performance no matter what, If it doesnt you take it back and get another, but P.C if it doent work for your Pc you can take it back ounce youtrid installing it . BULLSHIT PC's SUck ass F*ck interplay if you have that much time on your hands to constantly be playing online with your characters you have tom much time on your hands

PC's are so much more flexible than gaming consoles. You can get differents mods and skins to make the game look anyway you want. plus it's easier to do internet gaming, you don't have to buy an adapter thingy and all that. plus the keyboard has so many more controls that you can do so much more. like battlefield vietnam would be hard to put on a console bacause you use all the "f" buttons on the top of the keyboard and all the numbers and many of the letters. how do you put that on a controller?

a word youll hear x-boxes saying

doom 3


and farcry isnt all that awsome.

i see things really far away, but it just lacks things...not that it isnt a great game, but it just seems overrated to me.

half life 2 is cool,'

*in best govenator of california voice*]
your puny pc games are no macht for the awsome goldyness of halo 2.

sargent johnson is the second coolest videogame character since master chief.(hes the black dude you see in the into of halo, the second level of halo, the 343 guilty spark cut scene, and the secret* extra scene in the ending, and hes in halo 2.)

Halo 2 is going to be a disapointment. It won't be able to match with Half life 2. The first halo is vastly over rated, teh only reason anyone cares about it is because it's the first really good console FPS that's come along in a long way. It can't hold it's own against other, supperior shooters though.

im not a big fan of PC gaming..too much work. i like too be able to put the game in and play. Half Life 2 is looking alright, as is Halo 2, but i think im most excited about Doom 3. as far as Far Cry being overrated..i wouldnt say that. if your computer can actually run the damn game, it proves to be one of the best shooters overall ive ever played, and thats on any system. it lacks a tad in the story, but the physics engine, voice acting, and graphics are all unbelivabele. another great shooter on the PC is PainKiller. its like Far Cry with gritty, dark enviorment, and 100 foot monsters.
