Or its because console gamers just suck.

That's a lie, I have seen many console gamers familiarized with the gamepad kill a lot of people.

The problem with console FPS's is that it's hard to get precise kills, mainly because you have to push it and it takes some skill to keep it on the enemy. While the mouse is much more accurate and precise, I feel like console gamers are more skilled because they're able to use an Xbox 360 gamepad to kill a lot of people.

First that sentance was ment as a joke and second i dont see how console gamers that use gamepads killing other people with gamepads shows that they are better then some one who uses a mouse  to kill people who also use a mouse.

Oh I am dangerous in shooter games on the console... but i'm even more deadly with a keyboard and mouse!

I do need a new mouse tho...

Cause they're able to use something that wasn't entirely designed for first person shooting, (think GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64). Second, I didn't intend that they were better, I said that since they were able to manage to be the best with the tools that aren't really compatible, they're the best for the Xbox 360 and PS3, sure some console gamers might be good on the PC with a mouse but they are the best on the consoles.

Sure a mouse is easier to use and more precise but tell me, does it really matter what tools he has (mouse or controller (gamepad to you)).

i guess this senstance can be miss misinterpreted as to think someone ment console gamers are better then pc gamers.

and saying there is more skill involed because you have to use a gamepad, " which wasnt entirely designed for shooters", is bad because you play against other people using the same thing

(i think the controll you use makes a big difference when playing games. some one who mainly plays pc games may have trouble with xbox games and vice versa.)

I have no problem jumping back and forth between the 2... but I hands down prefer my mouse and keyboard.

I think if you took the best gamer on console vs the best of the PC world... and had them battle using their respective tools... I think the PC games would win.

Someone should host an epic PC and Console tournament of the same game seperately to weed out the best on each platform... and then pit them against each other cross platform and see who comes out alive :-D

Shadowrun's the only game like that I can think of, but nobody plays that, not even when it was released.

 

I remember when Halo came out, I was a pretty avid pc gamer.  I was actually rather good at Alien vs. Predator and was in an online clan, moving up the ranks.  But my friends who only played Halo on Xbox would always destroy me in Halo deathmatches.

Personally I like the game controller and even use it on the PC, With the mouse and keyboard in the dark, it gets so frustrating I want to throw them out the window!

I wasnt trying to say pc gamers cant play console or the other way around i was just saying one may prefer using one over the other. And yes the best pc player probably would beat a console at fps games and thats why they shouldnt be mixed to fight togather.

Man I cant wait for Kinect, I know its expensive but It has voice recognition, I could use it for watching movies and I could have Video Chat with friends too.

I wonder how long it will take them to make a Kinect Hentai game?

 

Haha, I'm sure it won't be too long before some third-party game company makes one. Though I'd never seriously play it, I wonder how that would work..
