I'm an FPS gamer so it really doesn't get much better than what I have now which is MX Reds with o-ring dampeners installed. You really have to re-learn how to type on these, but once you get the hang of it these are wicked responsive. For people who want something a bit less light to the touch, the Blacks are the same thing but with more actuation force required aka a denser spring.
I wouldn't mind browns, but I don't like the touch feedback they give. Most people require that; I'm one of the few who don't.
O-rings really are a necessity though.

I see, but why would a FPS gamer go for a 200+$ *ergonomic* keyboard? As a gamer I would just take any ordinary, non-ergonomic (mechanical) keyboard or a programmable squared keyboard such as x-keys... The benefit of an ergonomic keyboard is better touch typing, isn't it?

Advantage from ErgoDox for me as a gamer would be huge ergonomically. I have 2 feet wide glass mouse surface and if I use full sized keyboard my arms are forced to very wide angle obviously. Now my keyboard is placed in front of that glass but that requires a bit of stretching towards keyboard. Even with my tkl-keyboard don't want to use it left side of the mouse surface. You see where I'm getting to. To free and more importantly - ergonomic - placement of the left piece of ErgoDox.
And when typing the benefits are there of course to be gained with ErgoDox. I had once symmetrical (one body) keyboard and I loved it until it brake down eventually. But it is not manufactured anymore so no luck for replacement.
On topic: I voted Brown ones which I'm using right now.
