Take a step back from all the times you’ve criticized something in a game—what’s the nitpickiest, pettiest, just couldn’t-get-over-it criticism you’ve levied over something that everyone else seemed to gloss over or give a pass? Or was it something that other people agreed with, and you feel totally vindicated over?
Kind of a hard question. What’s coming to mind for me was the lack of iron sights in Fallout 3. I love that game, but I remember picking it up and being flabbergasted it had shipped without that mechanic. A game where you shoot guns but can’t aim them. Huh?
That’s less nitpicky than what I’m asking for here, though, so forgive me for the weak example.
