I like the comment underneath, just press "H" to holster your weapon. :)

I love how they showed him unable to get over the curb, this always annoyed me in FPS, when a tiny obstacle can stop you from moving unless you jump awkwardly. They have to come up with a new walking mechanic, where character's feet move according to level geometry.

Good comment too:
"The "first person" cam section should have had a moment when he looked down at his feet only for them not to be there."

Not all games are like that, quite a few will take smaller increments of altitude change and move accordingly.

Actually, I can't understand why were not seeing more cases of this disease showing up, especially with the proliferation of FPS games over the last few years. Maybe people just aren't reporting it enough because of embarrassment, shame, or fear of medical treatment.




Good one!
