my thoughts on the keyboard vs mouse debate

In Response To: Re: Volunteers???? (Hamish Sinclair)

: You can survive quiet well using the keyboard only in all 3 Marathon games.

Being a keyboarder-turned-mouser, I must say that keyboarding is perfectly fine, especially in M1, but in M2, M, and AO, mouse-looking with InputSprocket allows for better control over your aim and movement. However, the process of switching from keyboard to mouse is very difficult, because initially you will... suck. This is what seems to turn off a lot of people to mouse-looking; they try using the mouse, find it exceedingly awkward, and then give up on it. This is okay; one can still kick ass in Marathon with keyboard-looking, but in multiplayer games, mouse skills really pay off.
