Nice to know it won't be so consolised, but I remember a time when those things were all standard features for a PC release.

I remember a time when it wasn't always certain that computers would have a mouse, like with the C64 - many games of that era often had clunky keyboard/mouse/joystick driven interfaces because they were designed and ported across multiple systems (C64, IBM-PC, Amiga).

The only way we're going to see this "issue" go away is if a single system monopolises the gaming market, and that would probably be a worse situation IMO.

At least joysticks are much more standardized on the PC thanks to consoles. I do not miss the days of having to calibrate and re-map every single game to my generic 2/4/8 button joystick.

There were also a lot of games where you simply couldn't remap the keys, they'd often come with large fold-out keyboard size sheets telling you what each key does in the game.

Don't worry I've already got my limited edition preordered but most likely picking it up on console as I have more friends picking it up on that rather than PC due to not having a PC that can run the original one.
