Op Ed

Games On Net - Devil's Advocate: Take Control of your Destiny. Ill-informed opinion of the day.
The misguided belief that controllers are somehow a simpletonís tool is not helped by the fact that controller-centric consoles have a higher, or at least more visible, proportion of childrenís games than the keyboard and mouse-bound PC. So itís easy to see why an association can be drawn there - although of course, that sort of inane logic also works in reverse to label everybody who prefers the mouse and keyboard as a nine-to-fiveíing, data-entering, go-nowhere office monkey, because after all - thatís where keyboards and mice get used most often.

Meh, blatant trolling for hits.

Controllers are far better for sports, fighting, and platformers while KB+mouse are vastly better for FPS and strategy. It's not a debate, there's no discussion worth pursuing, it's very obvious and I don't think I've ever heard it disputed by anybody who's spent much time with both.
