Even when you have a gaming mouse + keyboard.

I can't play games for multiple hours using M + K without getting cramps.

When you have to shoot stuff(first person and sometimes third)=use m+k

anything else(drive, platform) you can use a controller.

depends on the game.
Let us assume that for the sake of assumption that I am always right.

I'll do it when I'm playing on the couch.

Yeah its not as good as KB&M but its serviceable and gives the ol' thumbs a workout. Some games just work better with a controller too... I'd mention emulation but then it might bring up the question of whether that's PC or console gaming!

Well, its not weird, since each person has its preferences.

I don't like controllers though, and I mostly use KB+M for every game I play (even fighting games).

But I DO have a controller for when someone comes to visit. Not everyone likes KB+M, right? ;)

Only weird if you're playing games such as FPS or RTS with a controller.

in player vs player games you have to use a kbm or you'll probably get wrecked (shooters, rts, mmos)

but for single player games where you can just pause and are only playing against ai, you can/i prefer to use a 360 controller, it's easier to play, easier to play with my friends taking turns or coop, and still feels better just having one controller compared to big old kbm even if i've been using a kbm for years and years

It depends on the genre. For FPS, strategy (turn based, 4x, etc), RTS, simulations, point and click adventure games and some third person adventure/action/RPG games, KB/mouse is king. For everything else though (driving, flying, platformers, SHMUPs, pinball, whatever I missed) I prefer using a controller.

I prefer playing most pc games with the gaming mouse I have. If you configure a gaming mouse with lots of buttons properly imo it can be better than a controller in probably all games besides fighters and sports games
