(re: re: When did the ‘demise’ start?) My opinion on KQ8 (and I always have alot of opinions) is that it failed because it didn’t have mouse movement. In an adventure\fps mix one has to be able to turn quickly and fire. Having to use the arrow keys to turn and fire, caused one to be inaccurate. It is hard to turn to the right direction and be on target. This just adds to the frustration. It is also tiring to have to use both hands all the time.
And I still think having that rape scene in Phantasmagoria was a mistake. Never ever mix horror and sex, or violence and sex.
