When I play FPS, I prefer the precision of the KB and mouse, but when it comes to relaxing games like Skyrim, GTA, SR3, etc.,I think the relaxed position of the hands on lap is best because I am better able to immerse myself into the game.

I'll conclude my verdict when I receive my Xbox 360 wireless controllers for Windows.

Though there are a few games like arkham city, assasins creed, racing ,platformers ,etc. where I woudl agree wtih you, Saints Row 3 , skyrim are not games I would play with a controller.

I think the reason why I feel uncomfortable with the mouse and KB is because of their positioning. There isn't much that can be done because of the design of the computer desk.

I received the controllers today and it seems that controllers give a whole different experience. The positioning arms and hands is more natural and relaxed, making it easier to immerse oneself in the game.

Now to test out which games go better with controllers. I am glad now that I have the options.
