    How did you play back in the days?
    Keyboard.

    How do you play today?
    Keyboard.

    What was the first game you actually played with keyboard and mouse together and who told you to do so? Very Happy
    Probably "Unreal Tournament"

    I started with a keyboard and a mouse and that's how I play today. For a while I had a netbook with a trackpad. I'd rather use the keyboard, so I adapted.

    Wolf 3D has always been the same for me. RShift is run, I use the arrows for navigation, space bar for opening stuff and CTRL for shooting. Never could use the mouse, joystick or whatever.

    In Unreal Tournament (which is the only other game I've played recently) GOTY edition, 1999... Yeah! I use the mouse as well as arrows for navigation. Never could dig the WASD stuff. And left click for shooting.

    I normally use the mouse to move around. Left click on the mouse or the space bar to open doors etc, and right click on the mouse to fire weapons. The upper arrow key to run fast.

    to be honest im not sure if what i have is a trackball....there's this blue thingy on my old computer's keyboard and whenever i rub my finger against it it acts like a mouse..only the mouse keeps moveing until you let go of it...makes for fantastic movement controls in fps games...i call it trackball becuase i have no idea what else to call it [yes i know what a trackball is but like i said i didn't know what else to call it
