POLL: Easiest way to aim?

It varies, in most cases I prefer to use a controller
I find using the joysticks on controllers makes it a lot smoother to move and shoot than mouse + arrow keys, plus you can hold down crouch and whatnot without it getting awkward, all buttons are within reach
Mouse may be a bit faster, but I find since you have to move the mouse around your mousepad you can run out of space and lose precious split-seconds whipping it back across the mouse pad for more space to move.
I have thought about this a lot and I always come up with controller, it's just easier, so makes it better for me.

The mouse has been proven superior to the controller time and time again. Remember when microsoft was talking about cross-platform gaming between the PC and Xbox? They quickly discovered that a below average gamer using a keyboard and mouse could effortlessly defeat a highly experienced player using a gamepad.
One can actually buy a product that allows a mouse and keyboard on xbox. The resulting trolls are hilarious.

Mouse indeed, specially for beginners.

I have a hard time aiming with a controller and i can't understand those who play COD online and are fast as h#ll.
I think personally that a mouse is much easier to aim with than a controller and such.
mouse is better for aiming any day of the week and twice on a Sunday.

What about the old Nintendo Zapper? Talk about easy, there were times I could aim off to the side of the television and still take down one of those damn ducks.
That is the smartest thing I have ever heard anyone say about anything.
I prefer Mouse, but i am also good at aiming with controller.
It's been a long time coming.

Nothing beats the mouse.
Life is best for those who enjoy it, difficult for those who analyze it and worst for those who criticize it.
