Because racing games aren't meant to be played with a keyboard? Not a hard concept to grasp. They're meant to be played with a gamepad so you can avoid the problem of 100% throttle/brake.
That doesn't change the fact that developers need to take into account that most people on this platform will play the game with keyboard
No they don't

infact I believe you're in a very very small minority

What are they to do, include a gamepad with the game? There's no way of getting around the fact a keyboard has no analogue input.
A VERY easy measure can be taken (and has been on many occasions) to accommodate the keyboard's lack of analog input without assuming that your PC gamer customer is always going to have access to a gamepad. Numpad for throttle %'s. NUM1 - 10%, etc. It's a rough method, but easier than driving by 100% acceleration taps. If you're porting or making a racing game for the PC, there is no reason not to include a set like this.

That said, it's better to have analog input.

While I always play racing games on the PC with the gamepad these days, I never had a problem using the keyboard in the past. Just tap keys if you don't need full throttle.

Getting your car properly straightened out used to be a bit of a problem here and there but aside from that it was ok for me.

Alt Enter is decently standard in any game.

Get it!
€20 is a great price for all the included DLC packs.
Also, you'll get a beta key for Duke Nukem Forever.

Tip:
Play the DLC packs after the you've finished the main story line of the base game and in order of their release.
That is, don't travel to the respective start areas that are immediately available, as that triggers the DLC's cutscenes, and you don't want to spoil the fun, especially not for Zombie Island.

Whether or not that works, idk, I already uninstalled. But it's not the point, a game made for the 'accessible', 'user-friendly' consoles should have an option to go full-screen without having to know keyboard shortcuts or tweak configs.

it's just a shortcut that you should know if you care enough about windowed mode to complain about not having an option for it.

Yes there was abit too much backtracking and "go there then come back so I can tell you to go there again"-quests..

But I think the humor and overall gameplay (and the quality of the UT engine) made up for it..

It did, but it still relied far too much on reusing familiar ground.

I've never played a game where a fullscreen option wasn't present in the menus. I did know the shortcut, but because I never use it, it never sprang to mind.

PS Uzique, it's not an HNC in Uncommonly used Windows shortcuts..

alt+enter is uncommonly used? what? it's the shortcut i always use instead of fussing about with in-game menus...

Dunno what you're playing, but 99% of my games start fullscreened from a fresh install.

obviously when i NEED to use windowed mode, you fucking dumbass

'not fussing around with in-game menus' hardly means 'AHH EVERY GAME STARTS IN WINDOWED MODE!'
