Mouse.
It makes other players sick (if they aren't used to it...) when you run around. When you're using a mouse the player sprite looks like it's having seizures and bouncing up and down (The Marathon sprites can't always keep up with what direction you're facing)...or if they're watching your screen...ROFL!!!
Plus, IMO, its easier to aim. [MUp]

I use the mouse for everything except marathon.
The only choice you have is the one I've already made for myself. Disappear into the darkness. Then make them fear the shadows.

do you mean in marathon?

keyboards pwn in old school shooters

but suck in new games

when i was at the top of my game in marathon (before bungie was bought by a nameless evil) I could pwn anyone with a key board

you could beat the marathon seires, the whole way sraight through without dieing once, using only fists (except for switches), on TC, in 13 hours using keyboard (I could not dream of repeating this feat today)

I do use mouse look on new games (it would be nearsuicide not to unless your on the easiest level)

I can't stand the mouse. I have always used the keyboard and will always use it.

Same here, but if I could use mouse on Marathon, I would.

I feel that I've been able to manuever faster ever since experimenting with the mouse.

Since playing games like Soldier of Fortune II and Quake 3, I find it hard to go back to using just the keyboard.

I have managed to cultivate both skills simultaneously. Yay! I use the mouse for Marathon and the mouse for everything else.

I don't know what you really mean...

What I meant was that I can use the keyboard for marathon and the mouse for other games with equal skill.

More of you folk need to be keyboard loyalists (in Marathon, at least). I have and always will play Marathon with the keyboard.

But I play Halo and everything else with the Mouse.

What's wrong with using the mouse for playing Marathon? I like giving other players seizures.

Nothing wrong, sire.


Just...Either my mouse is sucky or it's aleph one OSX's fault, but I'd doubt it... (Or maybe os X itself...)

Meh. Im a mouse loyalist. That one magazine article described our vidmaster practices as masochistic, so I guess become skilled with the mouse is just another thing we do.
