In adventure games I prefer point and click interface. I can accept keyboard controls if it is with a fixed camera. In RPGs I also prefer point and click but have learned to use keyboard controls.

In the new Poirot game (evil under the sun), I so longed for a way to pan around the environment that you get when a game is (full) 3D. it would have been much easier for me to move Poirot around then.

I get in a muddle with keyboard controls, I want to concentrate on the game not curse at keyboards so would always opt for mouse control.

I hate the use of the keyboard for the game controls (apart from using the esc to reach the main menu). Point and click everytime for me wave

Hi Phoebe, I prefer point & click but if a game is enhanced by keyboard control I do wish developers would also make it gamepad compatible - I find a gamepad more intuitive than the keyboard & less distracting! smile

I tend to think twice before buying a keyboard-only game, I just find the controls aggravating.

Having said that, any game which uses the keyboard for movement and simultaneous panning with the mouse works great for me. Overall, though, I prefer plain point & click.

I definitely prefer mouse-control, but over the years I have finally reached the point where I can at least get through a keyboard-control game. The first one I ever played was Grim Fandango, and poor Manny spent most of his time either turning around in circles, or banging into walls...lol

Point and click only. I won't buy a game that has keyboard control.

I'm an old fashioned gamer who loves a classic point n' click game and for some reason, when a much anticipated new game arrives on the scene but has a keyboard interface - I get highly disappointed. Am I alone in that? I find that I just can not play any games with a keyboard - maybe I'm not coordinated enough?! So I end up having those types of games collect dust on my bookshelf or better yet, a paper weight!

Tell me I'm not alone in my old fashioned ways!? Which interface do you prefer? Point and click or keyboard? Oh and heaven forbid you have to use BOTH the mouse AND the keyboard! LOL

I like point and click because it is simple. 2 buttons to press - left or right. With Dead Reefs I had to keep looking down at the keyboard to make sure I had to right key. Oh so NOT fun hardwall and surely to whole point of playing these games is to have fun.
