When people talk about the current golden age of TV, they’re usually referring to big, serious dramas like Breaking Bad or The Wire.

Sometimes, video games are good. Other times, they suck. Here is a thing some good games do that really sucks.
Everyone remembers the first time they played a really good video game. The constant surprises of Half-Life, or the drama of Final Fantasy VI, or the stress and catharsis of Far Cry 2.
