Keyboard and mouse here. Best combo for me actually, though I can OWN n00bs on the 360 or any console for that matter.

It was just easier for me to get used to WASD than X O triangle square or any other combination. I will, however, pull out a controller for a game like GRID. Much more fun that way.

I kick ass with a keyboard/mouse combo. Hand me a controller and I'm all thumbs. The whole walk, look, turn and move thing with your thumbs is beyond me.

It's kind of funny, I always used a joystick before, but now keyboard and mouse. I would probably do better with a joystick though, I've spent may hours gaming with a Commodore 64 and a joystick.

I love the key board and mouse combo. If my mouse was better, I'd probably be ALOT better at FPS games, but I'm still in the top of my ranks. LOL. I do use a controller for racing games though.
