38. Re: The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition in April Jan 28, 2012, 15:41 Jerykk
And to suggest it's a console port for not including 'numerical bindings' for dialogue is bollocks; games stopped doing that because it looks shit and breaks immersion.

What? How exactly does that break immersion? You still see text floating on the screen. Adding a number in front of each line doesn't make any difference in terms of immersion. It just makes a difference in terms of usability. The reason most RPGs stopped doing it is because most RPGs are designed for consoles these days and consoles don't have number keys. Recent RPGs designed specifically for the PC (like the original Witcher and Divinity 2) had numerical bindings for dialogue options.

As I mentioned before, Witcher 2 was clearly designed with a future console port in mind. That doesn't make it a bad game. I thought it was a great game. But if you really can't see the console-centric design choices in the UI and combat, you must be in denial.
