PC shooters > Console shooters.

I'm enjoying Reach, but it would be much better if I could plug a mouse and keyboard in. And I don't really enjoy shields.

And I hate infection gametypes, lol :P

I agree only to disagree. I was first exposed to PC FPS with Call of Duty 1 and Halo. I loved them compared to the console ones I was used to. However, the number of hackers on PC is ten fold compared to XBL or PSN (I have yet to run into 1 on both). But the controls imho are much more precise on PC. They both have their strengths and weaknesses (hello dedicated servers vs. hosting)

I will agree that hackers are usually more of a nuisance on PC... but I usually just quit the match whenever I see a cheater.

Also, that is another strength of playing on the PC. Dedicated server = admins = cheaters can be manually banned. This is why I can't wait for CoD: Black Ops, because MW2 doesn't use dedicated servers on PC :(

I got my cousin the elite bundle (xbox, reach, controllers, the works) as a gift, and played about 20 minutes of the main campaign with him in co-op. Then watched as he usurped my TV for the next week with multiplayer matches. My opinion?

Game's ok, for a shooter. Not really my genre. The playerbase? HOLY SHIT. I harbor much, much hatred for the FPS playerbase. That's probably why the whole FPS genre will NEVER make any money off of me, except for the copy of Haze I found used for like $5 somewhere.
