    The fact that consoles are now the biggest part of the gaming market is something PC gamers are just going to have to accept isn't it. As in any business the market dictates the way it operates. Addition or RPG elements is always good though!

    Really? You think id could do true RPG? N'ah, I'd rather a damn good id shooter/driver with some sensible, if not true RPG elements.

    Whilst we're just going to have to admit Consoles are bigger than PCs nowadays, at least I have faith id aren't silly enough to damage the PC version of the game as a result.

    Waiting for this, ID rarely come out with sh*t, even tho Quake 4 and Doom 3 were too linear for my liking, they were tech demos basically, to sell the engine.
    This is also likely to be the case, but i'll still play it ;)

    No one said anything about them being better. No need to be so defensive.

    Anyway, I am liking the sounds of this more and more, and with the graphics already looking amazing, I can't wait.

    It will still support mouse and keyboard, obviously. It's just that the actual mechanics of the game and interface designs are being dictated by "what can we reasonably expect people to do with a gamepad?" not "People have keyboards, so we can do whatever they want."

    Gamepads can limit what a dev can do,especially a game with RPG elements. Sad days for PC gamers.

    Sports, Platformers as well, but yeah, generally M/K is vastly superior, why can't ID still make PC the focus and port to console, that way, Pc gets is PC game, consoles still get a console game, face it, console gamers buy almost anything regardless of quality.

    I don't hate consoles or controllers [have a PS2 and 360 which I both love to pieces] and I replied to sotu1's post. Controllers work but they're not made for shooters. End of story.
