Yes, YES, YES!!!!

I've finally reached the point where I can manage to play a keyboard controlled game, but that doesn't mean that I enjoy it....

Count me in.

Played keyboard before but just not as enjoyable as using the mouse.

I'm also a point and click person. When I use the keyboard I usually get my fingers mixed up or go in the wrong direction. You could say that I'm Keyboard Challenged.

Oh yes, those keyboard moves can be a real challenge, especially those that use the W,A,S,D keys. I often find I'm typing on E,S,D,F keys by mistake during those tense fighting, hiding, or running scenes where I need to constantly keep an eye on the screen. So naturally nothing happens the way it is supposed to, very frustrating indeed. So, yes, I too vote for the point-and-click interface! I'll also add, third person, please.

I prefer point and click but will soldier on through a keyboard game if it's something I really want to play. But any game where I have to think more about the interface than the game diminishes my enjoyment.

I don't care as long as the interface works well and is easy to use. For example, the keyboard interface in Schizm 2 worked much better than the point-and-click interface in Journey to the Center of the Earth.

I like games that use the mouse in some way. I find that for most WASD games that use the mouse, I just keep one finger on the "W" key and use the mouse to pan, and it's very easy.

Sometimes point-and-click and 3D graphics don't mesh well. I think it's actually easier to get around in 3D with WASD than with point-and-click (only exception: Ankh, which made 3D and point-and-click work well together).

For me, the most difficult games to move around in are the keyboard-only games like Grim Fandango. We don't see so many of those as we used to.

Mad (and anyone who wants to use the quote feature), if you want to quote something, you can put
[ quote]
in front of the part you want quoted (without the space between the "[" and the "q") and
After the quoted part you put
[ /quote]
without the space between the "[" and the "/"

I left the space in my example to keep part of my message from quoting itself. Otherwise it would look like this
