Bah to that argument. It's a video game, and video games are for having fun. The fact that you get off on being over-competitive doesn't erase the fun factor from the equation, you're just defining "fun" differently for yourself than other gamers might.

So unless you're a professional gamer drawing a paycheck for playing in these "competitions", give it a rest.

I don't want to rape people, I want a challenge, and the KB/Mouse brings that to the table.
The definition of "challenge" does not include "what makes it more fun", "what makes it easier", or "what DigitalSonata likes better". There is just as much challenge in using a joypad as there is in using a KB/mouse; it's just a different challenge, because your play style obviously has to change a bit. The fact that you can't execute an instant-180 to shoot the guy behind you doesn't mean there's no challenge. In fact, I would argue that it's more challenging, because now you have to ensure that you don't get into those situations in the first place. But obviously, for this to hold true, everyone must be using the controller type; it's that whole level playing field argument that you seemed to poo-poo as pointless, for some inexplicable reason.

Note that I'm arguing this point even though I greatly prefer KB/mouse configurations. Your gaming preferences shouldn't matter to anyone, I don't even get why there's a debate going on since the servers let you "stick to your own kind". This whole "I'm an elite FPS-er who needs a challenge, you joypad-using n00bs can suck it" attitude is extremely off-putting, though. (And yes, although you did not actually write those words, that exaggerated sentence is very much the attitude I took away from your posts.)

I'm one of them. I have an LG HDTV, but I prefer to use my 22" Acer LCD on my desk for most games. And since you can use an HDTV with a PC, I also don't understand why people keep inflating the overall prices. Factoring in a $2000 TV for the PS3 price is not fair.
