Eurogamer: "id Software's Tim Willits has refuted Microsoft's claim that the first-person shooter genre is in its death throes on the PC."
Playing an FPS with anything except a mouse is like riding in a wheel chair for the fun of it.
People who dish the mouse are usually those who started playing FPS with a control pad and have no idea what they are missing out on. There simply is no comparison, the couple of times i have tried to play an FPS game with a controller it has felt like being handicapped. I tried it because we wanted to play L4d2 splitscreen on PC.
Yeah, alot of people try to say that the game pad is superior. These are the same people who don't know how to use a mouse and keyboard. I don't think you could find a single person who has become good/comfortable with both control schemes that prefers the game pad.
Kudo Tsunoda has definitely earned his place on the PC wall of shame :- http://sellouts.phpnet.us/ It is good to see ID people coming out in support of the PC and actually showing a bit of commonsense, something that seems to be lacking in this day and age in the Software Industry.
