Well it all matters if you are right-handed or left-handed. I'm probably an exception since I am left-handed and I use the arrow keys.

Right handies are better with wasd

I'm right handed and I am horrible with WASD. I'd rather use the arrow keys unless the game requires for me to use the touch pad then it's fine to use WASD.

And I'm left and I'm horrible with WASD. I'm much more used to the arrow keys.I find them more responsive and easier to control. The WASD just sends me all over the place. I only use it when its position is more convenient, and even then it annoys me.

I use the WASD keys but I have no idea why. I am right-handed but it feels more comfortable with my left. I have a laptop but I dont use a mouse so if a game needs a mouse its practically impossible to use the arrow keys because I can't move and click at the same time with my left hand.

arrow keys are ok, but WASD is really the only way to go if you have to use the mouse AND other keys to play.

Not really. I can use arrow keys with the mouse perfectly and I can use the WASD without using the mouse. I only use arrow keys when I play Exit Path or car racing games.

WASD gives a lot more room for other keys to be used in a game. (Not saying overly using buttons in a game is good.) Although, more room, usually equals easier gameplay. A lot of hardcore gamers use WASD, but you DO have to remember this is a FLASH game site and is used by casual gamers as well.

I use WASD all the time, for me it is more comfortable and it also makes it easy to use the Q,E,R,F, shift, and space keys on a lot of the games that I play.

I use WASD I am right handed but I prefer WASD cuz it's a lot easier to maneuver in any game including flash games.
