I personally will only play FPS or RTS games with Mouse and Keyboard,You get much better control with M+K, But I do play racers with the 360 pad.

You should always use keyboard and mouse. on first person games.

I am currently playing both without issue on the gamepad. If you are more of a gamepad person then you will feel right at home. :)

I played both Skyrim and Deus Ex with a xbox controller, it just feels right. I only use K/M for multiplayer/competitive games

It should work fine with both, so use whatever you prefer.

It normally depends on personal preference, and what you're use to playing with. IE if you have played nothing but consoles your whole life, a controller would be better, and visa-versa. I personally cant stand FPS games on a controller. And i dont see how console players can use it either. The fact that you have to take your finger off the right analog stick to use the xbay buttons, frustrates the hell out of me. ESP considering the right analog stick almost ALWAYS controls aiming..... This is mainly countered on consoles, by adding a slight "auto-aim" feature (can be seen in BF3 and the MW series) and very large hitboxes. i only play platforming or 3rd person fighter games with a controller (IE Super Meat Boy, Darksiders, SF4) Keyboard and mouse 4 life mah man.

I think that really speaks to your lack of experiance with a controller. If you are easily frustrated by taking your thumb off the right analong stick, then I think you just need more practice. It isn't hard to shift between aiming and using the face buttons. Its something I never even think about when I play a console FPS.

Keyboard and mouse. The only time I will use the xbox controller is for Driving games or when I hop in a vehicle in Battlefield 3.
