Are the Bioshock games best on PC?

I have 1 and 2 on 360, but my friends telling me they're best on PC. Is he right or are they the exact same thing?

Obviously they're the same games, they play the same, they just look a lot better on PC.

Its pretty much the same thing, but the pc versions have the option of better lighting and effects, which aren't available in the 360 version, as well as the option to play with a headset which just adds to the atmosphere.

I just finished Bioshock 1 on PC, and I do have one warning about it-- the controls are extremely buggy if you want to use a gamepad. The overlays that come up to switch weapons / plasmids very frequently get stuck, preventing you from being able to change weapons.

The keyboard / mouse controls seemed fine from the short time I used them, though.

And you can disable the post-processing effects on PC that ruins the entire ******* game.

In my experience, if the game is available on PC, that will be the superior platform. There are a few games where this isn't the case but I would consider them the exception not the rule.

Why would you play a FPS with a gamepad though?

If its not a competitive fps, why not? Many people prefer the feel of a gamepad more than mouse/keyboard and find using one to be a lot more comfortable. Myself included. Mouse/keyboard offers more precision which is great when you are playing online multiplayer or something, but if you are playing a single player game, who cares? go with whats more comfortable.

Because I play a lot of console games, and I like the gamepad better. That's really it.
