Trying to play any sort of RTS game on a console gives credence to the General's brash claim. Playing RTS's with a controller gets me in touch with my inner Civil War amputee, mostly because the clunky controls make me feel like I'm missing a hand.
The point I'm ambling toward is how much better suited PCs are to handle to the frantic micromanagement intrinsic to waging digital war on a mass scale. There's a lot going on in any given battle - what with the assorted factions embracing mob mentality and trying their damndest to kill one another - and having more buttons means having more control. The ability to assign hotkeys to groups of soldiers sets the PC apart as an RTS powerhouse."
