History of Modern Control Schemes PT 2: First Person Shooters (PC)

215 ratings | 5304 views
Where did WASD keyboard controls come from? What about Mouse Look? Why do we even need to control movement AND perspective? It sounds like second nature to us now, but somebody had to create these control schemes.

I love how PC games map crouch to Ctrl because I have a short 6th finger growing out the base of my pinky. Brilliant!

I know that this video is old but, the game, Tribes 2 features ESDF as its movement keys.

I still prefer to use the arrow keys rather than WASD. While not having any other keys around them can limit the options immediately available, it also helps keep your fingers on the right keys when playing in the dark. Every time I try to use WASD, I end up pressing ESDF because I press some other key to use an item or open a door and my fingers go back to the wrong keys. The one thing I hate about early FPS game is the damn auto-aim. To compensate for the fact that people were playing these games with the keyboard, many games had auto-aim where if you fired anywhere in the general vicinity of an enemy, the shot would hit them. Even if you were aiming at something else! I hate that! Even when using the mouse, most of those games have no way to turn the auto-aim off. When playing with a source port, it's one of the first things I change.

lurkerrekrul i use esdf but that's just because i switch from gaming and typing very quickly. I figured it'd be easier if I didn't have to switch my fingers positions. Still binded to have the same concept as wasd
very interesting. thanks

Interesting topic some really messed up controls on early PC games and that dreadful N64 controller but it did help to put other developers in a huge way
