I like both? I'm even starting to mess with keyboard playing. as for Boom compatible maps I like normal dooms non-free look. Often when I play with freelook in Boom compatible maps I feel like I'm cheating.

 

^ Agreed; I'll sometimes use freelook for Boom depending on how casual I'm playing a map, including FDAs for newer mappers where I'm mostly playing for feedback purposes, but for stuff like a "real" run or FDAs for maps from challenge mappers where my main goal is just fun, I turn it off. Not just for the fact that it maybe shouldn't be used, but also because ultimately I prefer to play without it. Honestly freelook is mostly just nice to be able to see nice architecture; using it actually makes it more difficult to tell vertical autoaim's threshold for high mobs, though I will note that using it can help players who have difficulty sniping or with their accuracy; look above the monster's head so the center of the gun is directly on them.

Typically just mouselook and I let autoaim do the rest, usually does fine when it works. I do have Q bound to toggle freelook on and off though for certain situations in ctf. I do not like playing with freelook on.

In addition, GLBoom+ has a nice feature where the crosshair turns from green to white when the monster is in autoaim range. Really useful for sniping and seeing the maximum distance you can take out turrets from and whatnot.
