I love pc games , mainly because of controls. I used to own a few consoles but never really got into them like I did PC games.
Shooters are soooo much more agile and the skill level ceiling is much higher online.

I can see why making games for PC is less appealing for developers, harder to achieve the same quality across all the hardware, piracy is far easier, and its much harder to estimate sales. . . e.g. they can know exactly how many people own a ps3/ xbox gaming system but guessing how many pc owners (everyone) will be interested in certain games is much harder to track and market towards. Tis harder work for everyone with PC, tis a shame as if done well it has the most reach and versatility.
