It's one of my pet hates so you better get it right
The only thing Farcry could have done to make things worse was to turn you inventory into one of those block puzzles where you have to arrange things to fit in a limited space. If I wanted that I'd play Tetris.
Yeh, Diablo does that, and i always thought it was a bit of a naff way to do things.
Even worse, i thought was the Ultima system, from Origin.
Although i've read a lot of comments from fans who love it, i persoanlly felt it was a right pain in ****.
Ultima had a backpack, where you just dumped all your inventory items into.
All on top of each other and it made for a right mess.
With lo-res tiny icons too.
You often had to spend 5 minutes just rearranging your backpack so you could just get at the most useful items.
On the other hand i quite liked the way Oblivion managed it's inventory system.
Items displayed in a list were quick to navigate and equip / de-equip.
And although i liked the 3d object display in Skyrim for inventory objects, i hated the way they implemented the list system.
I felt that was a step backwards.
Very awkard and the favourites system was terrible.
Hopefully i can avoid all those pitfalls.
