Mouse left to walk forward is madness


On console the gamepad is the way to play and the ones that matter are Xbox360, XboxOne, PS3, PS4, Wii U Pro Controller and WiiU gamepad. Below is a table of them with the official name for the button or stick and a short tag for each one. The tag is the short one i use when referring to it in a design doc :).
