    Controller for actiony games, platformers, racing games, certain RPGs. mouse & keyboard for everything else.
    Messing around.

    It really does depend on the game, but typically I only use a controller for console ports or action style games, because button mashing on a keyboard/mouse is just awful.

    Really depends on the game. FPS's will always be better on keyboard/mouse imo, but shit like Dark Souls I always play on a pad.

    I've never really cared for M/K for F/TPS games. I actually like gamepad better, but I don't really play competitively so maybe that's why. Movement just feels a lot better with a joystick to me.

    Game pads are inferior to mouse/keyboard in most pc game genres.
    The only times I will use one is for 2D platformers or tournament fighters.

    Comes down to preference definitely. I can't play Halo/CoD for shit with M/K lol
