Ok, I have never heard someone say Wahs-d for WASD.
I prefer using wasd even though i am extremely right handed. Using WASD for any game is probably the only thing I use my left hand for on a daily bases.
P.S.:my left hand fingers act faster than my right.

Well, arrow keys when you have to use spacebar or other keys, and wasd when you need the mouse. But when you don't need any I prefer wasd even if I'm right handed, because I like to have the mouse in my hand even if it's not needed.

WASD is bad for azerty players. Arrow keys are universal, even with mouse-aiming games

I am (slightly) ambidextrous, so it doesn't matter to me whether I use WASD or the Arrow Keys if I was give the choice in a game. If the game uses WASD and a mouse, I use that. If the game requires buttons like the spacebar or "z, x, c" like many retro fighting games, then I use arrow keys.

Really, I have no preference. I just use what is given to me.

I would very much prefer WASD, mostly because of the games I play, which require both the space bar and the mouse. Plus, the arrow keys on my keyboard are a lot smaller than the usual ones, so it's hard to use. However, I can see why players would use arrow keys; it's just a general thing. But then again, so is WASD.

To sum it all up: WASD FOR THE WIN.

If I don't move the mouse it freezes so I rather choose those aim and shoot games like strike force heroes for example.

I used to use the arrow keys but now I use WASD because the arrow keys are on the right side of the computer and I'm right-handed so I use the mouse with my right hand.That means I would use the arrow keys with my left, which is uncomfortable. I use the mouse near the center of my computer instead of the right or left side, so my left arm would have to cross over my right. I also play more games with both the mouse and keyboard so I got used to WASD.
