Playing back in Morrowind… and just having to click everything… is just. Boring.
Part of it is, you look over something and can clearly see whats there? why add the whole gotta click it part?
You can just RP walking up to it, and pretend your looking over it. Two World II had this, you could turn off kneeling, your character would do when checking corpses.
Some games do it ok, cause its not a loot fest, some just make it silly. (like MGS games, were you picked up and dropped a body)
Not about lazy, its about QoL. depending on game, there this pause as game loads. Its pretty silly. Specially when you waiting for game to exit as your being shot/hit at.
Its just so much faster to glance over crates/barrels/chest with how its done now. Again thou, Depends on game. Little looting? then clicking isnt to bad. When your having click thru entire locations… not so much.
My house is pretty much Cabinet near one of doors I drop everything off in, and sort later. So its empty half time… never huge deal.
Most of chests near workbenches are, tuck to side, so never really pop them up.
Storage is basicly large cabinets along a wall, So I can just walk past ends like library and look thru general area of were items are. Everything for me is pretty much sorted.
I remember when mod came out for fallout3, and everyone was rather happy and wanted this feature… and then bam fallout4 we got it. Happy happy. XD
