id on RAGE PC Controls

PC Gamer has word from id's Tim Willits on RAGE controls, stressing the game's PC support allows the player to carry more weapons than, say, Duke Nukem:
Rage doesn’t follow the trend for letting you only carry two weapons at once. Instead, you can carry all your weapons at all times, and they’re mapped to the traditional number keys. “We were kind of back and forth on whether we keep to four buttons that you map to your favourites,” explained Willits. “But on the PC you’ve got a key for every weapon. And we follow the Half-Life control paradigm, where you can press the button twice to select the weapon.”

This should be crossposted to the Dungeon Siege thread of an example of how to properly handle choice.

id clearly doesn't know what they're doing. They should be creating one master control system and intentionally hampering all the rest of them to ensure that everyone has to play the game the way they want them to.

That's the way REAL developers like Obsidian handle things these days. THEY dictate how a player should enjoy their game, not the other way around.
