Console gaming or PC gaming?
In a perfect world, use a controller on a PC!
Not always the best option, but for some games like racing or fighting games it is the best.
One of the benefits to PC is that often games are more fast paced due to the ability to aim faster, though that doesn't help too much in Dark Souls because the controls are messed up. Good thing pc supports controllers
I like the upgradability of a PC and love the Steam/Humble Bundle sales. But I hate using a mouse and keyboard for controls.
