This new generation of goofball console idiots need to stay away from reviewing PC GAMES.

Anytime you preface a PC game review with "plays best with a controller" translates exactly to "SHIT PORT", simple as that no excuses.

and how many dings should a PC game recieve when it's well know it will have ZERO support or patches?

I'm gonna start my own review blog. These current 'industry reviewers' don't know shit about what true pc gamers expect.

Eh? M&KB is not the optimal control scheme for every genre. Fighting games are best played with arcade sticks. Mech sims and flight sims are best played with flight sticks. Racing games are best played with wheels. Shooters and strategy games are best played with M&KB. Games that have fixed camera angles are best played with gamepads.

Just because a game is best played with a non-M&KB setup does not make it a bad port. Devil May Cry 4 and Street Figher 4 are great ports but they aren't best played with M&KB because of their respective genres.

I HIGHLY disagree. There are several games that are just easier with a controller then a mouse/keyboard, and are enhanced ports of the original. Mirror's Edge, Batman AA and AC, Assassin's Creed series.

That's debatable. It's much, much easier to turn quickly and precisely in ME when you use M/KB. This doesn't mean much in the campaign but it makes a huge difference in the time trials. As for the Arkham games, the gadget quick use is much easier with number keys than D-Pads because there are 8 abilities, requiring you to double-tap diagonally on the D-Pad, whereas on PC you have specific number keys. No chance of error.
