    The last time I tried to play with a controller it all went south really quick. It just feels so much more intuitive to do it with a keyboard and a mouse. Perhaps someone should give it a try with a racing wheel pad and comment on the experience :p

    I never tried playing Skyrim with a controller. I don`t think it would actually work. I need my mouse for proper aiming and accuracy. :D

    I love using a controller for most of my Pc games, really. :]
    I am really accurate with a controller though. I guess I am just used to it.

    I only play games with a controller because I simply can't get used to keyboard and mouse. I'm hopeless and get killed in seconds...then again I'm also a two-finger typist.

    I'm also one of those people who leans back in the chair when the player is getting mobbed by scary villains. I've found myself so far from the screen at times that I couldn't have reached the keyboard!

    this one uses a keyboard and mouse, and has gone to grate lengths to adapt it to her game as an asset.

    some tips for keyboard & mouse game play.
    set your mouse speed to default in its options. example this one has a RAZOR ........opens settings and sets it to default

    after that you configer mouse speed in the game options, lower or raise it until its speed suites you ..........

    HOW to measure this, In game you should be able to preform a 180 degree turn with precision, keep changing settings until this is possible! ...........THIS IS YOUR PERFECT MOUSE SPEED and will make every move you make look elegant

    this should fix the 360 degree sniping like mad because of a to sensitive mouse movement

    as for the keyboard .............TRY ELIMINATING the A + D buttons for a small period of time until you are very used to only walking forwards & backwards, then slowly introduce side steeping.

    if you want to take this all to the next level then try this

    for perfect hand eye coordination you have to first achieve balance between the LEFT & RIGHT side of the brain.
    this is easy to accomplish. ...........You use two fingers to press all the buttons on your mouse & You should ONLY use two fingers to press all the buttons on your keyboard.
    This may sound very silly but it will improve your game play by a good 20% and it all happens subconsciously.........

    lastly its understanding real mouse movements and how they are displayed in the game ............a EXAMPLE
    going up a spiral stair case ........You may think that you have to move your mouse in a circle movement to achive this, but the reality is that if you want to go up a spiral ........you move your mouse in a strait line across your desk,

    below in the video there is a demonstration of precision 180 degree turning in combat, and if you take note that you will NOT see a single side step (not using A+D buttons they are disabled in combat)
