I play all sorts of games, from FPS to RPG's. Examples of games in my library are UT2004 and UT3, AvP, AION, Guild Wars, Global Agenda, Blood Bowl, Eve, Splinter Cell, Test Drive Unlimited, Left 4 Dead 2, Portal 2, Half Life 2, Dragon Age 2, Sacred 2, Torchlight, Stalker, among others. I find control pads much more comfortable to use. In general I'll use mouse and keyboard for MMOs and RPGs where hotkey shortcuts come in handy.
While no pro I handle myself well enough with a control pad to not get slaughtered all the time. I'm actually worse with a mouse and keyboard when playing shooters actually, lol.
It's simply a matter of preference. I'm happy enough using it and wont get pushed into using anything different just because a majority think otherwise.Edited by Lifeshield - 4/30/11 at 5:10am
