WASD, for about any game, but I have played some games with arrow keys. I don't know why, since i'm right handed, but i prefer WASD.

WASD for games like Armor Mayhem and Raze that require me to use my right hand for the mouse pad then left for the keys. I will tell you, it can get rather awkward playing games like that. Especially if you're like me and never use the WASD keys.

I use the arrow keys if I need to use the normal keyboard for something, but WASD if I need to use the mouse.

I think that the reason why they let you use the WASD and the arrow keys is so that you can find your most comfortable gaming style. I prefer the WASD keys because then if can use the shift, Ctrl, and space bar if needed, and the mouse with my right hand. In my opinion though, no keys are superior. It all depends on the person.

WASD because I'm used to it from playing to many RPG's. Also with WASD you have the z,x,c,q,e (etc.) keys to press with your left hand so you can use those for other stuff. I am right-handed but i still think that WASD is far superior to arrow keys.

its better to use wasd keys because even if u r right handed you need to use more keys in most of games so if you can adapt your hand to juse wasd keys then you can use ur better hand to press attack keys or use mouse

If there is mouse controls I like WASD because I WASD with my left hand and mouse with my right hand. If there is no mouse then I use arrow keys.
