On top of all that, I feel the game favored people who had a joystick with a hat switch, which was never a huge majority of PC gamers. I'm sure there are people who did great with mouse and keyboard, but I dunno; the one guy in my dorm who had the fancy Logitech stick just kept slaughtering the rest of us.

I was a originally a keyboard player and no, playing with a joystick in descent is lot harder then playing with a mouse and keyboard. It has a huge learning curve, only when you achieve mastery can you compete with peolpe who use mouse and keyboard.

The mouse still is equal to the joystick for descent, what ticks off FPS players is the ships physics that doesn't have 'instant' turning so they can't just flick 180 degree's instantly. People like easy games. Descent is basically one of the most manliest videogames on the planet because fighting in 3D is fucking hard and anyone who picks up descent deserves props for that alone!
