Too true. It's like listening to F%^kn Ke$ha and Katy Perry all day. They can mrket garbage to a large audience and make money, so they do. I also disagree about Tribes being the progenitor. Bunnyhopping was taken from Quake, at the very least. And yes, Auto-Aim is for console kiddies cos they can't aim properly. With the mouse you can decide where to shoot, with the sticks you can only decide which way you want to turn. Not that people don't get very proficient with the sticks, but they still can't snap-shot, and their marketplace suffers from being entry-level and oversimplified. and yes, that Kudo Tsunoda guy is a tool, or at least a mouthpiece. He has a bright shiny new toy so he has to pimp it or he gets fired, so he becomes a douche. I don't see this transforming FPS gaming any more than i saw FPs gaming transform chess. It works, so you can't mess with it. People still use treadmills when they could be out running. PPl will still use the mouse because it's a great way of creating an experience, complexity and integration are one thing, realism has nothing to do with it.
