    Heh yeah. Enemies on the z-axis were a real pain until mouselook. Dark Forces, for example, has very obvious auto-aiming to remedy this. Of course, so does Doom.

    Aye, unless you did deathmatch there really wasn't anything that made mouse+KB necessary in anything prior to Quake 1.

    And so most people just did what they'd done for years up to that point. Use only keyboard or use a joypad/joystick.

    Heck, it still wasn't uncommon to see people trying to play Q2 or UT online with keyboard only or joypad/joystick. I had great fun being a spectator and watching them try to compete in DM and CTF. :D

    And going through that elemental alternate universe thingy... you must've freaked out a couple of times during that (when you're pc crashes while trying to wreck another bat..)
