id: "RAGE Will Feel Like a True PC Game"

There's a RAGE Q&A on NowGamer talking with Tim Willits, Creative Director at id Software, about RAGE, their upcoming first-person shooting and driving game. The Q&A is pretty general, asking about the game and its story. They also discuss its multi-platform development, and Tim feels that PC gamers will feel at home: "For the game designers the biggest focus for each system is the controller interface. We’ve taken very deliberate steps to make each system feel right in regards to the interface and the controller. We’ve been making PC games for over 15 years, so PC fans should rest assured that Rage will feel like a true PC game, not a PC port of a console game."

Uhhhhh.. No it isn't. Maybe that's the way consoles do it, but gamepads are not accurate enough for a driving game. Either by using a dpad, or the thumbsticks, as many gamepads have, it just doesn't have the kind of control that a joystick or even a wheel have. I prefer the versatility of a joystick since it works equally well for flying as for driving, but wheels can be great too. A gamepad though? Really? What kinds of drugs are you smoking/dropping/snorting/injecting?
I was comparing it to the PC input method of keyboard and mouse. With a controller you have analog controls for steering and acceleration and breaking, versus binary controls with a keyboard. If you weren't too busy trying to come up with a clever way to insult me you might have actually noticed the point I was trying to make.

John Carmack : "It's a console game. It's made for a controller, and we've focused completely, 100% on the consoles."

Tim Willits in Damage Control Mode : "It's a PC Game through and through!"

Sure, Tim.
Ha, I'd forgotten about that quote. At the end of the day this is a console game. It's not going to feature PC technologies (DX11, dedicated servers, etc) and it's not going to be designed around the PC architecture. It may play well on PC - to the same extent that Bioshock and Borderlands did - but that doesn't make it a true PC game.
