that's the way we used to role back in the day. And people complain about clunky controls now a day? If only they knew.got heretic and hexen series on steam. with the exception of Hexen 2, i have to say its extremely hard to play input wise.
no mouse, getting full screen is pretty funky if not impossible. no gamepad. So using keyboard alone to move around efficiently is some funky monkey s** now i'm telln ya.
So maybe there is some way to force mouse input so i can use it to look instead of move forward and back?
gameplay wise, kinda hard to see where i'm supposed to go, usually seems to involve pushing a difficult to see switch where a hidden wall somewhere opens...assuming i can even accurately get from one end to the other smoothly without jittering all over the place due to these funky monkey control schemes.
Can't remember which one, Heretic i think. i see these doors open and close, i time it so i can go through but i get stuck and cant seem to move anywhere. weird. its different not having to look up or down either, though its not really 3d i suppose.
Hexen 2 is much better input wise, but its odd how you again find these switches that opens doors in other rooms. i wasted quite a bit of time wondering back n forth. then i watched the youtube video but lost interest after seeing it.
Remembering back reading all those COD vs old games threads, so many speak so highly of games like this, how their not linear or something...how is this series not linear? its one boxy room to another and another and another. Only difference is i have to wonder around forever finding magic switches.:\
