why is Valve against alt-F4 and iron sights?

I mean I dunno if any of their games have alt-F4 and Portal 2 is the only one that has a useful iron sights outside of snipers(which is more of a scope). at least the ones I've played

Just like you can say Justin beiber is a p**** but you can't accuse him of having one. ~WyzeGye

Iron sights are pro-cinematic/analog stick and anti-gameplay/KB&M. They're keeping their priorities straight.

No, the ability to aim down iron sights is just a modern thing game devs just have to include these days due to too much demand. If your claim is right, why doesn't Halo have iron sights then?

The developers still value gameplay over something that adds immersion at the expense of severely slowing down game, is why.

Iron sights are fantastic...If they're implemented correctly and realistically.

Unfortunately they're just used as an "all shots go straight here" mechanism most of the time.

I exclusively play cs:go as the only shooter. I kind of got used to it.

Valve realized they had no knack for making games so they went down the selling games route. Best thing that ever happened to them imo, and it spared us their mediocre game making skills.
