Yeah, I totally hear you; I don't play competitive multiplayer so I don't mind the console-pace of the Xbox 360 controller in single player mode... although when I first entered PC gaming w/ Half Life, I was a hardcore Mouse & Keyboard user all the way through F.E.A.R. *sigh* memories!
the thing is though, with a console, everybody's relatively equal. which is far more appealing to me as a casual gamer, that i can log on and not be at a huge disadvantage because i don't have three monitors running off 2k worth of vid cards, and using a keyboard/mouse combo made specifically for the game.
i also like the fact i can pick up almost any game and be familiar with the controls in a minute because it's the same controller, and i don't need to 'map keys' or anything like that.
so consoles are still the ultimate for casual gamers. ppl that jump from game to game frequently and play somewhat socially rather than seriously. PC's are the ultimate for hardcore gamers, especially if they are going to play the same game for hundreds of hours and want to tune their systems to get the absolute most out of the game.
not to say you can't game seriously on a console or socially on a PC...
