I'm pretty sure this is why Bethesda moved fallout away from an isometric game and made it a first person shooter. Action RPG's can get away with controller support because they have minimal environmental interaction.

That's basically it. I wouldn't use it, but I don't mind it as long, as it doesn't harm my PC experience, as Skyrim did.

Seek your own truth. Always.
