No man, wireless is never better for games.

There's always this slight performance decrease with wireless. This can easily ruin gaming.

Though it works fine for other stuff.

THAT sounds like my cue! :3

Can use WiFi for games, just get a wireless-N series router . I get a <1ms ping from one end of my house to the other, and full 54mbps connection speed. And im only using a wireless-G adapter. If I had a wireless-N adapter, it'd be better than a standard CAT5 lan (Theoretically speaking)

around with all of the cords.

Well I'am a wireless kind of person since I don't like being tied down but everything has its pros and cons.

Wired offers:
fast if it is or above dsl/cable speed
reliable aka unless the wirebreaks it will always work
Increased security aka online 1 wire unless we start getting into hubs and routers
A pain in the ass...wires everywhere man Dx

Wireless offers:
Mobility you can do your task almost anywhere
Easy sharing over wireless networks
No mess to deal with =D
Inconsistent connection speed and sometimes frequent d/c Dx

With that said I like wireless because I prefer mobility, but If I need something I have to get done will go with wired since that way I'm certain I will get the task done. I can only hope wireless can become more reliable =o

I would choose wired because most of the time, it's faster and more reliable. But, if you have a laptop then I would recommend wireless.

Wired internet is alot better then wireless internet.
More reliable, better speed, better security, more bandwidth, lower cost.
Remeber, this thread is about wired internet VS wireless internet, not wired networks VS wireless networks.
But even then I would take the wired network as well in most cases.
DM said it best.

As for setup at home, get wired to a router, and then wire anything that's stationary. And use anything temporary or often moving around in the house wireless.

Of course personally I'm always near my switch so I don't need wireless anyway.
Plus I couldnt be bothered with the extra setup and small chance of a wireless network being hacked, no matter how minute that may be.

i like wireless better because then you dont have to worry
about cords getting in the way. but then again most
wireless cords use batteries. i guess either one could be
useful.

I'd go with wireless because of all the cords you need to set up a wired computer.

I think that wireless is much more convenient, but wired is undoubtedly faster.

Wired gets my vote, it's faster, more reliable connection also getting the right modem doesn't cost too much extra. (From my exp in Australia, i dont know how much wireless modems cost anywhere else and i dont care)
Also some shady sales person sold my mother wireless internet and told her because she lives in a house on the corner it will be faster then wired internet...

I would rather have wireless even though it might not be as fast but you can move around while using it and you don't have to have cords.
