Pros are good at using controller b/c its what they practice with.
As much as we all want to believe otherwise a pro halo player would in fact stomp the heck out of a mediocre player using mouse and keyboard. Simply because of how much they've practiced. I think that comment about average pc gamers destroying pro console players is a bit far fetched. Anyone who spends 10 hours a day playing halo with a 360 controller is going to stomp someone who barely plays 1 hour/day with mouse and keyboard, unless they're like the Lebron James of mouse and keyboard.
I do agree. Halo is a type of game where you have to play it a lot [for me at least] to be any decent.
I was playing with some of my friends [some of which eat, sleep, and breathe Halo] and they would stomp me up close since I don't know the game's mechanics that well.. but from afar I could pick them off across the map with the DMR.
Experience and familiarity are what make a player deadly in FPS.
However, in a game such as Black Ops II I can join a game once a month and put the other team to shame. I've always found Halo hard to get back into when I don't play for a while, more or less because it's so different from other FPS games.
