Bah. What a jib. Console gamers are killing innovation.

Hmm... to me the 90% statement is indeed "staggering" and shocking. Given the choice between an RPG on my X360 and my PC I'd prefer the latter.

He apparently has a reputation for saying inaccurate things, so I'm looking into verification.

I'm having trouble making sense of your argument and some of it I can tell I wouldn't be able to convince you otherwise on, so I'll just say it's not even a console vs. PC thing, it's that if you're going to release a game on any platform, it should be optimized for that platform and to the fullest extent necessary, play to its strengths. I'm also hurt seeing the same happen to console versions, and admire developers who make sure all versions are at their best.

It's not an obligation on their part any more than it's an obligation for gamers to support subpar work.

No insidious agenda -- just encouraging good work and discouraging poor work.

I believe a real gamer plays a game on the console(s) they think the game will be better quality on... but 90% console? Jesus h Christ!

Using a keyboard and mouse is so much better and easier for this type of game though, no idea how people can play TES well on consoles =/

TES should always be a PC game first in my books. The modding community is what makes the series so amazing. This could potentially harm, if not almodt kill, all of that. Bad move Bethesda. If you want to cater to the kiddies with their consoles then do it secondary to catering to the original community that made Elder Scrolls the gaming beast it is today.

He said that he wanted to bring modding to consoles, not take it out of the PC version.

I realise that. However, the path they are headed down is a standardisation of the game across platforms. That can only, and will, restrict the PC mod community and alienate the core fan base of the series, and company itself. Again, bad move Bethesda.

Most of the 'mods' for Oblivion were either texture/graphical mods or sex mods

Nothing much else except for a few really good ones that everyone knows about.

There are more mods than you can think of:

I have something like 150 mods, are maybe 5 of those are textures or sex mods.
Yes, I have a sex mod...
