    Do you think that someone on a gamepad can beat someone ona mouse and keyboard with equal skill?

    EDIT: The game is Enemy territory: Quake Wars (CS is on hold)

    Hell no. A good PC gamer can point to any direction in 1/4 of a second or less. At least 4 for gamepad. Try shadowrun or Halo 2 on the PC, both are "games for windows" and should natively support the 360 controller

    I was expecting games like Tekken, or VF with Gamepad vs stick.
    Mouse vs pad is no match, unless your gaming skills have a HUGE gap.
    I can beat a 2 year old playing FPS with mouse, even when I play pad.

    For a shooter, the mouse is definitely the way to go...unless you are playing Halo with its ghey auto-target thing :/ (The auto-target only affects an XBox 360 controller, if you play Halo 2 on PC with the keyboard you don't get it, so I've heard)
