I really take offense to this "dumbing down" comment coming from the PC crowd... as if console games are somehow for the stupid.
I think a better way to put it would be "streamlining" user controls and interface [the latter being something that PC games have always struggled with imo]. Other than keyboard and mouse and perhaps tweaking a .cfg file [which many, including me, consider cheating in that you can give yourself an advantage such as fov] I don't know exactly what is being "dumbed down".
But it seems to be PC only gamers last trumpet call at proving their platform's superiority. But then again, there is nothing ever specific given... just the call itself, which usually stands baseless. This comment was edited on Mar 20, 14:11.
