And those trips aren't FUN. Instead of making those 5 trips back and forth for no other reason than IMS, I could be exploring a new area, battling new enemies, or doing things that are FUN. And when you consider this happens at every new area you come to, you're talking about a huge and significant part of the gaming experience being nothing but a UPS carrier, back and forth, back and forth carrying stuff (no disrespect to UPS carriers intended).
Well, no offence, but if you actually do play games with limited inventory like that, you're doing something horribly wrong and are one of those people that should grab mod for unlimited inventory on their first opportunity :D Also, I'm not usually the kind of person to hide behind majority, but my resource management argument (which makes the game more realistic - not the fact that you can carry 200 lbs, mind you) still goes strong without anyone actually managing to disprove it by anything else than 'you're wrong' and 'I don't like it'
Heh, having said all I've said, you'll never believe what I'm going to attempt next.
Fallout NV. On HARDCORE mode.
LOL, no, I won't like the back and forth trips solely for IMS any better and wish that weren't part of it, but I do like the other aspects of Hardcore mode. (Requiring sleep, food, and water). So, I'll give it a go. If I turn it off, it will be because of the IMS, no other reason, since with bullets and stimpacks having weight I'll now have to make 8 trips instead of 5. (BTW, those are exaggerations, sorry. But I have made three trips back and forth from one location before in Fallout 3. Solely for IMS purposes.
What I usually do is fast travel back and forth for IMS trips. And then when done in that area, I walk back or to the next area in real time, since IMO fast trip is another "unrealistic" thing but adds in this case a way that lessens the impact of the IMS. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if that's why they added it. Knowing there's going to be trips made solely due to the IMS.
And for the record, GOTHIC 1 and GOTHIC 2 were absolutely GREAT games.
And I've seen lots of people agree with that.
And neither had any limitations whatsoever. You could carry all you wanted.
