23.
You are in a room with a table, a bed, and a small drawer. It is obviously a hotel room. The desk has a flask on it, and there is a key on the dresser.
Look Key
You see a key that is the key for the hotel room. It is a simple key. This is an old school hotel so of course it is still using a key. There is a small number hanging out on the chain that says "272".
Get key
You are not close enough
Go to Key
I don't understand that
Walk to Dresser
You walk to the dresser
Pick up Key
OK
Look Flask
It is an old flask that came from the tavern you went to the other day
Get Flask
You are not close enough.
Pick up Flask
I can't understand that.
**** YOU
I don't know how to **** something.

24. None of the character's colors are right, because the devs only had 3 color palettes, and all of the outlines are weird colors like orange and blue for contrast's sake.

25. You can't tell what that ugly, low-resolution sprite is supposed to be unless you check the official art in the instruction booklet.

26. The translation is gibberish at best, but you need to figure it out or you'll be stuck forever

Is there such a thing as a regressive gaming problem?

I played the GBA iteration of 'Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee' for a few hours back in 2005 or so, and I remember being slightly horrified when I hit my first password screen. It'd been a while since I'd got one of them. You know, when I was seven, and the NES and C64 were cutting-edge, passwords were a necessary evil; sixteen years later, go figure I went '...excuse me?'

...I mean, I was playing it in my tech school cafeteria. I didn't have the manual there. I wasn't going to scribble the password down on a piece of paper and staple it to the cart, was I. So instead I kind of just quit playing.

31. Great game but as time went on you realized how graphically challenged it was because it was made in that awkward puberty stage where we were in the midst of developing good 3D graphics.

34. All of your skills have unhelpful names like ALIT and TMPR and XFER and you have no idea what any of them do.

35. Moving step-by-step through a really long dungeon that is literally just one long claustrophobic maze full of virtually-identical hallways with very little landmarks to distinguish this dead-end from another.
