70. Every room looks the same and there's no minimap. Hope you have a pen and paper nearby.

72. This game was released before everyone decided that the left analog stick is for movement and right analog stick is for camera - and no centering button either.

75. What's that? Your really powerful weapon just broke?

76. So, you had a 95% chance of this recipe working, and it failed? Haha - sorry, RNG Crafting systems are a bitch!

...oh btw you're not going to find another one of these ingredients for the entire game. There're only a set amount.

80. this game was more fun with a peripheral that a) broke your system, b) is impossible to find nowadays, and c) barely worked.

85. When you know you're playing the weaker version of a game, ex. Mortal Kombat on SNES or Doom on 32X.

86. The game is over and the credits have finished rolling and nothing is happening. . . soooooo does it go back to the menu? Yes? No? Guess you have to press the reset button.
