I don't understand how that scenario at the house breaks "immersion" for you. In the real world when people die in their homes there isn't always a note or something explicitly telling you what happened. The fact that there is just a dude there that is dead seems more realistic than a dead dude with a note next to his bed telling you about how he died.
Also if you click in the right stick, it zooms out to third person. That's on the 360, I'm not sure how you do it on other skews
I decided to go with the 360 version, its technically only $5 more since I already have like a 500 point balance. I would have gone steam if there was a way to use a controller with it, however I don't have a controller I can hook up to my PC, and buying a new controller so I can get a game for $5 cheaper just doesn't make sense.
I'm looking forward to playing =D, thanks for all the input duders
