If this is in the wrong section please tell me and i will not post similar questions in the game design section thank you.

 

What are the optimal fighting controls on pc? I mean of course you have the arrow keys or wasd keys but what keys are optimal for punches or kicks? For my game i need 3 keys if you have any idea what keys it should be please tell me.

I would prefer z, x and c in addition to the arrow keys. It gives you comfortable hand positions and is consistent with other games that is designed for keybord only, especially asian games.

Remenber to tell the player clearly though, and keep in mind different keyboard layouts..

Optimal is controller support.

 

For keyboard input though, make sure that the keyboard controls are FULLY customizable. In fact, even controller button mappings should be fully customizable - this is definitely what a player is going to expect.
