Left select, right move

It just occurred to me that I don’t know where the left button select/right button move interface came from. It’s pretty standard in the industry now, so I was wondering if anyone knows who thought of it.


Warcraft II is the first game I can remember doing it, but that doesn’t mean it was the first one to do it.

It’s been around for a long time, though. It may have been first.

I also seem to remember Warcraft II as my primary experience with the L-select R-move interface. In fact, I remember having trouble adapting due to my pre-existing C&C mindset.
