SWIV & Silkworm have keyboard controls and they're great.

If you enjoy the keyboard that much I recommend WinUAE which is able to play ALL games with keyboard

I always preferred to play Blues Brothers with the keyboard, for some reason.

Not sure if that qualifies as a great game, I always enjoyed the Amiga version.

would probably need a "list" thread: Action games that can be played with keyboard. Well, you'd have to remove the ones that aren't "great".

(does Running Man use the keyboard ? or Rise of the Robots )

D-Generation with the keyboard isn't so great IMHO because you have to press 2 keys for the diagonals. I find it very difficult with the keyboard, and playable (excellent) from joystick.

Always loved to use Keyboard in Colonization and Civilization games.

For first laptop had to have keyboard in order to have keypad to play them properly.
