Am I the only person in the world who doesn't use WASD?
The title basically says it all. I'm self-proclaimed graduate of the Old School of gaming, started off back in the early 80s on the Atari 2600 and C64.
So when FPSs arrived on the scene I seem to have adopted the QWES control scheme. I want to blame this on Catacomb 3D which was the earliest true FPS I remember playing (I remember 3Demon and a couple others which had rigid corridor type architecture but I don't count those) though I'm not 100% sure if this was the default control scheme.
I know WASD is the generic standard, although I know people who use ESDF or IJKL. I however have settled into QWES (where Q and E replace A and D for strafing), then I use A for jump, CTRL for duck and SPACE for use. I've never known this to hinder me in any game...I consider myself a slightly better than average FPSer. I can hold 1:1 ratios on my worst days and hit the top 3 on my best.
I'm just curious to know if I'm alone out there or if there are other QWES misfits out there.
