Well, even 'frantic' isn't too big a deterrent to more hardcore players. I didn't have a PC joystick for various chunks of my childhood (I went from CoCo to Tandy 1000 to generic homebuilt 386, no upwards compatibility for joystick once I hit the 386), so I got pretty good at Commander Keen on keyboard.

These days I can still play Street Fighter pretty well on keyboard, even well enough to Shun Goku Satsu.

I'd even go so far as to say Cave stuff is a touch easier on keyboard with the slightly faster twitch response. That actually reminds me of the HitBox, a recent interesting development from the fighting game community.
