    it depends on the game. ie. i use a controller for jrpgs, gta, sleeping dogs, saints row, asscreed, bastion, and braid, off the top of my head. because they play better that way.

    Depends on the game. I generally prefer keyboard and mouse though.

    Echoing the above two opinions and saying: It depends on the game. Racing games, Bad Console Ports, ETC I will use a controller.

    I don't ever use a controller, no matter what. If a game has horrible keyboard/mouse controls, then too bad, I just won't play it after a while. I don't own a controller, since I don't own a console either. If I ever get a controller, it'll be the day I buy a PS4, which may be next year or so.

    Very dependent on game.

    I'll use controller for racing games, and adventure games, but keyboard and mouse for just about everything else. There's no reason at all not to use a controller, if it's better suited to the game.

    Only games I used a controller for were AssCreed and Dark Souls. They badly needed it. Otherwise it's keyboard and mouse all day every day.

    Mostly use a controller, except for shooters. I'm kind of lazy and I like sitting back in my chair.

    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
