I used to play with arrow keys until I started playing fps on the computer(TF2 FTW). Then the WASD keys just stuck. On games like Exit Path(2D platformers), I use arrow keys

I definetly prefer the arrow keys for games in which i must use the spacebar and other keyboard keys. In a game in which the mouse is a necessity i always use WASD because it is much easier to use my right hand for the mouse. Id be willing to bet Left-handed people would say the exact opposite of me, because i think everyone does what i do, although, i have seen some people using the arrow keys with there left hand :o

I am right handed and I still use WSAD keys, especially in games with a mouse.

It all depends on the game. In my opinion, I like my arrow keys when I have to use the Z,X,C keys and then I use the W,A,S,D keys when I occasionally play Minecraft.

WASD is almost always better. Especially when using a mouse. Shooters depend on WASD keys while other games like fighters and adventure games are better with arrow keys.

^Actually, I find using IJKL interesting^

WASD for running+mouse like Raze/SFH, but for other games like Give Up, Exit Path, etc. I use arrow keys.
BTW, how do most of you pronounce WASD?
My friend says "wahs'd", I say "double-you-ay-es-dee."

I say it like regular people say it. I say the letter "W" then "A" then "S" then "D".
