Here is my situation. I haven't been a PC Gamer for 10 years now. Just played console games the last 10 years. I'm in the process of building a gaming PC, and I'm interested in playing a bunch of games from 2008, 2009 and 2010. Basically, I primarily want to play console ports, just with much higher resolutions and all visual effects turned on. I'm not a keyboard and mouse guy. I used a Keyboard and Mouse back in the Unreal 1 (the original game) days, but I've gotten used to using a controller, and I'll be kicking back on my sofa, not at a computer desk. Here is a list of games I'm interested in playing on the PC, but I have zero idea whether any of these games will work particularly well with a Xbox 360 controller:
Fallout 3 - with the high-rez texture pack
Batman Arkham Asylum
Far Cry 2
Modern Warfare 2
Mass Effect 1
Mass Effect 2
as you can tell by this list, most of these are console games that I played on the Xbox 360 or PS3, but I didn't completely finish any of them, and some of them only scratched the surface. I've seen screenshots of a few of these games running on the PC, and they look considerably better than their console versions, so that's one of the main reasons I want to play these, but I'd love to focus in on the ones that work better with a 360 gamepad, rather than Keyboard and Mouse. I know that most people will think I'm totally crazy for wanting to play any of the PC shooters with a gamepad, but again, I'm going to be kicking back on a sofa, not sitting at a computer desk, so there is the whole ergonomical situation to consider. I don't mind using a mouse for my aiming, but I'm not at all looking forward to using WASD for 3D movement.
