Then in a post (within the last year, iirc) Gorath posted that info saying something along the lines it was originally intended or developed for consoles.
I could be remembering incorrectly but either way using the Multifunction keys is still a bad idea for fluid gameplay.
Very true. It was confirmed once more in a recent podcast interview (by PB's Björn Pankratz IIRC) that Gothic was originally made for consoles. Then the game world became too big to fit into any back-then-generation console's memory and they had to drop the console release plans.
