(He lost the debate over "crouch" – which now appears – but convinced the team there was no need for a "use" key.)
Of, if there is no need for a use key, how the hell do you open doors? Are they just going to open automatically, meaning you can not time your opening right to jump on the baddies? Is there not going to be ANY interactivity with the environment? If none at all, I think the game play is going to suffer greatly? As automated activity with everything is very annoying at times.
I do get what he is saying, about simplicity, but I mean come on, the whole point of the new graphics engine is to immerse you in the world, like never before. So why then would you not be allowed to interact with that environment, other wise it will be just like walking through a museum with a shotgun.
Here is to hoping someone at ID reads this forum and will clarify. Maybe he meant something different, and more involved as the “use” key?
