Most of the time but I've adapted to KB/M more than I had a couple of years ago.

yes i do. Except for counterstrike. I couldn't imagine using a controller for that game. Everything else that offers controller support yeah, but if not I use this...

For some games, yes. I prefer to use the M/KB over controllers, but some things work better with controllers. Racing games (when I'm not using my racing wheel), flying in Battlefield (since joysticks are useless there), and other games like Lego games.

The best thing about having a PC is that for the most part you can use pretty much anything. I'm not restricted to one control type.
PC is the only place to play games at their true potential
1080p/60fps standard, upgradable, mods, FOV sliders, ultra graphics - it's backwards compatible too

Of course. The glory of PC is the variety of available inputs. I typically use whatever method the developers had in mind, as that usually provides the smoothest experience.

Mostly on indie games that were designed with a controller in mind.

I use wired 360 and it works really well.

I can't imagine playing Grid, Psychonauts,or KoA with a keyboard

I use the 360 controller for certain games on PC, but not all of them. I used to use PS3 controllers, but configuring them properly became a pain in the rear.

Way, way back in the day I bought actual PC gamepads, but those were even worse. I'll keep using 360 controllers until they are obsolete.

On another note, I don't have an Xbox.
